Realme is launching its mid-range flagship smartphone in the UK, Spain, Italy and France next month and if you’re after a quality handset for a low (and I mean looow) price, you’re going to want to pay attention.
Powered by the 10nm Snapdragon 710 – just like the brand new Realme X (available in onion and garlic) that was revealed last week – the Realme 3 Pro is the first smartphone the Chinese manufacturer has introduced to the UK. The company used to be a part of Oppo but peeled off last year so if you’ve not heard of it before, that’s probably why.
Available in Nitro Blue and Lightning Purple with a gradient pattern, you can pick from the 4GB RAM with 64GB storage, and 6GB RAM with 128GB storage. The handset boasts a 6.3-inch Full HD Gorilla Glass 5 display with a 90.8 per cent screen-to-body ratio. The device features Sony IMX 519 16MP + 5MP rear cameras, that incorporate a Nightscape mode for nocturnal video capture, 960fps/720P support for super slow-mo, and 4k. You’ll find the front-facing 25MP selfie camera in a discreet little dip in the bezel.
With TouchBoost to optimise touch control in games, FrameBoost that can improve frame rate by 38 per cent, and ChromeBoost “for more distinctive and detailed pictures,” the RealMe 3 Pro has a number of tricks up its sleeve to fine tune and improve on the user experience. The new VOOC 3.0 flash charge technology ensures faster and more efficient charging of the 4045mAh battery that clais to be able to withstand heavy usage.
The RealMe 3 Pro runs on the ColorOS 6.0 system – OPPO’s version of Android 9.0 Pie.
If you’re tempted by the specs, the price will have you hook, line, and sinker. From June 5 you can pick up the 64GB version for £175 and the 128GB version for £219 from RealMe’s European website.
