Realme X expected specifications
Realme has revealed almost every key detail about the Realme X ahead of its launch. As far as design is concerned, we know that the Realme X will sport a glass and metal combination. The curved glass back will be offered in two gradient colours - a bluish purple and a whitish pink.
On the front, the Realme X will likely sport a 6.5-inch notch-less AMOLED display with a FHD+ resolution. Realme has confirmed that the Realme X will offer an in-display fingerprint sensor. The device is expected to run on a Snapdragon 710 chipset paired with up to 8GB of RAM. We also assume the device will ship with Android 9 Pie with ColorOS 6 on top.
Realme is also highlighting some powerful cameras as well. The main camera will offer a 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor for high resolution images. Like the Realme 3 Pro, the Realme X will also come with Nightscape and Chroma Boost. The pop-up camera will likely hold a 16MP sensor. The battery capacity is unconfirmed yet, but the company has confirmed VOOC 3.0 fast charging support.
Alongside the Realme X, the company is also expected to launch the Realme X Youth Edition, which will be a rebranded Realme 3 Pro. The Realme X Youth Edition will get the same design and specs as the Realme 3 Pro, which means you can expect a 6.3-inch waterdrop FHD+ display, glasstic rear panel, Snapdragon 710 chipset and VOOC 3.0 fast charging.
