Realme 3 Pro & Realme C2 Launched in India!

Published

on

After months of teasers and rumours, Realme has finally launched the Realme 3 Pro. The phone was first announced in the Realme 3 launch and is a direct competitor to the Redmi Note 7 Pro. The Chinese manufacturer also launched a budget smartphone called Realme C2.

Realme 3 Pro

The Realme 3 Pro looks very similar to its predecessor Realme 2 Pro both in the front and rear. However, it does have a few aces up its sleeve. The rear panel is curved which blends with the side frame and helps in a strong grip. The back is made from injection-moulded plastic while the display is protected by a Gorilla Glass 5.

The device features a 6.3 inch IPS display with a resolution of FHD+ (2340 x 1080 pixels) and a waterdrop notch on top. Realme decided to use a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 compared to the SD 675 on the Redmi Note 7. The SD 675 may be a latest and slight powerful chipset than the SD 710 but the later makes it up in graphics power and efficiency as indicated by the benchmark scores. There are two variants: 4GB RAM + 64GB internal storage and 6GB RAM + 128GB internal storage. You don’t have to worry about replacing a SIM card as it comes with a dedicated microSD slot which can be expanded up to 256GB.

The Realme 3 Pro might lack the 48MP large sensor on the Redmi Note 7 Pro and packs a decent 16MP Sony IMX519 sensor with f/1.7 aperture which is the same sensor used in OnePlus 6T. It is paired with a 5MP depth sensor for Portrait mode. On the front, it offers a 25MP camera up to f/2.0 aperture. There is HDR support and can shoot videos up to 4K resolution but no stabilization. Shooting modes include Time-lapse, Expert, Pano, Slo-mo and a Nightscape mode for low-light photography. It does offer a 960fps which is likely a marketing gimmick and aided by software.

The Realme 3 Pro runs ColorOS 6 based on Android 9 Pie with some third party apps like ShareChat, NewsPoint, Webnovel etc. The handset draws power from a massive 4045 mAh battery with support for Oppo’s VOOC 3.0 fast charging standard (20W). There is no USB Type-C port and we are still stuck with a microUSB port. However, unlike the Redmi Note 7 Pro, it ships with a fast charger.
