The phone was launched earlier this year in China, alongside Realme X lite, but that one is not launching here as it’s already available in India with a different name.

The Realme X is the first phone from Realme to come with a pop-up selfie camera. The pop-up camera means the phone comes with a 6.53 inch Full HD full-screen display.

The phone comes with a dual camera setup of a 48MP Sony IMX586 primary sensor and a 5MP depth sensor. And on the front, there is a 16MP Sony IMX471 sensor.

Realme 3i is like a mash-up of Realme 3 & Realme C2. For starters, it’s back design reminds us of Realme C2, but with a gradient. It is powered by Mediatek Helio P60 SoC, which is the same SoC they used in Realme 1 & Realme 3 global variant.

Another major downgrade from Realme 3 is the use of a 6.22-inch HD+ display on the device instead of a Full HD+ one. The phone comes in two variants, 3GB RAM 32GB internal storage and 4GB RAM 64GB internal storage.

Now, coming to the camera, it comes with a 13+5MP dual camera setup on the back and on the front is a 13MP shooter.

The phone is priced at Rs.7,999 for the 3/32GB variant and Rs.9,999 for the 4/64GB variant.
