Realme X features

-- One of the big highlights of the Realme X is its notchless AMOLED display. The Realme X does not get a water drop notch or a punch-hole cutout in the display, which means you get no distractions at all. This also means a high screen ratio thanks to minimal bezels all around.

-- In order to remove the notch, the Realme X offers a pop-up camera mechanism. The camera rises from the top center of the frame when using the selfie mode or for face unlock. The pop-up system houses a 16-megapixel f/2.0 selfie camera.

-- The other big USP is the 48MP dual camera setup on the back. The primary camera uses a 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 f/1.7 sensor to offer sharp, high resolution photos. There is a secondary 5-megapixel depth sensor for bokeh shots. The camera also supports Nightscape and Chroma Boost modes, AI scene detection and 960fps super slo-mo recording.

-- Like the Realme 3 Pro, the Realme X also supports VOOC 3.0 fast charging. It houses a 3,765mAh battery, which you will be able to charge from zero to 100 per cent in about 80 minutes.

-- The Realme X is also the company's first smartphone to offer an in-display fingerprint sensor. Additionally, the phone also supports face unlock.

-- Powering the Realme X is a 2.2GHz octa-core Snapdragon 710 chipset, which is the same processor powering the Realme 3 Pro as well. The Snapdragon 710 SoC promises to deliver a snappy experience while the embedded Adreno 616 GPU will aim to offer a smooth lag-free gaming performance.

-- The Realme X comes in two attractive gradient colors - blue and white. The blue variant sees hues of blue and purple while the white option offers a pinkish hue. The company also announced a couple of special edition Onion and Garlic colours as well.
