Realme's hotly awaited 64MP camera phone, the Realme XT, has been revealed in entirety, ahead of its launch in October.
The company has shared its review units with several media houses/reviewers, allowing full specifications and features to go public.
As for highlights, the phone arrives with an impressive 64MP quad rear camera, a mid-range chipset, and a familiar design.
Design and display
Realme XT offers a familiar waterdrop notched design
Contrary to previous rumors which hinted at an all-screen design, the Realme XT comes with a familiar waterdrop notched screen we've seen on countless handsets.
On the rear, the 3D curved glass body houses a vertically-mounted quad-lens camera unit- similar to the Realme 5-series.
Further, the phone bears a 6.4-inch AMOLED screen with a full-HD+ resolution and Gorilla Glass 5 protection on both sides.
Realme XT sports a 64MP quad camera setup
The Realme XT offers a quad-lens rear camera setup comprising a 64MP (f/1.8) primary sensor, paired with an 8MP wide-angle sensor, a 2MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth sensor for advanced bokeh effects. On the front, the phone comes with a 16MP selfie snapper.
Under the hood
The Realme XT is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 chipset, combined with up to 8GB of RAM and up to 128GB of onboard storage.
Under the hood, it houses a 4,000mAh battery which supports 20W VOOC 3.0 fast charging.
Lastly, the handset runs on Android Pie-based Color OS 6.0 and offers all the standard connectivity including a Type-C port and a headphone jack.
Realme XT could be priced under Rs. 20,000
Interestingly, Realme is taking on rivals like Xiaomi and Samsung by launching camera-centric phones with mid-levels processors at affordable prices.
Just recently, the company introduced a segment-first 48MP quad-lens camera on the Realme 5 Pro, at a starting price of Rs. 14,000.
Hence, we expect Realme XT to feature mid-range specs, an impressive 64MP quad-camera and arrive in India somewhere under Rs. 20,000.
