Realme, which had started as a sub-brand of OPPO with the launch of Realme 1 smartphone and later became an independent brand had come a long way and had achieved a good number of market share in the country. With a fleet of smartphones launched last year, the company had gained a decent consumer base across India with its striking features offered on the Realme devices that too in an affordable price range. This year, the company not long ago had launched the Realme 3 smartphone and further announced the Pro version of it coming next month.
The company, which is known to be bringing prominent features in this cost effective and highly competitive price segment had brought some notable features for the newly launched Realme 3 smartphone as well. The Realme 3 packed in a 6.22-inch HD+ display and a 4230mAh battery capacity and MediaTek’s Helio P70 SoC, all these starting at under a Rs 10,000 – Rs 8,999 to be precise, for the base variant. Along with these noticeable specifications the company had equipped dual rear cameras on the rear of the Realme 3, which comprise of a 13MP primary sensor paired with 2MP depth señor with an aperture of f/1.8 aperture.
What’s interesting with the Realme 3 cameras is that the company had introduced two new features to these cameras – Nightscape and Chroma Boost mode. While the latter enhances the colors making them more vivid while capturing, the former – the Nightscape, which is nothing but dubbed night mode as seen in other premium offerings. Realme launching this Nightscape mode for a sub-Rs 10,000 phone is already commendable, and further these modes are now assured to be coming for the older Realme phones as well.
Yes, Realme’s CEO, Madhav Seth had confirmed that this new Nightscape feature would be rolling out to all the Realme devices released prior to Realme 3 smartphone. However, the strategic timeline of the rollout is still unclear. Despite that, the new Nightscape mode, which utilizes AI and multiple frame exposure to create brighter low light images being implemented in older Realme phones is undoubtedly intriguing. And, the company during the Realme 3 launch had also confirmed they have unlocked the boot loader of the Realme 3 similar to the older Realme phones and had also enabled the Camera2API for the developers to play around and take advantage of the additional camera settings without the need of rooting.
