Realme had a successful journey ever since the launch of the Realme 1 smartphone since last year. The company had come up with its ‘C’ series and U series later on in the country.

The company has now brought its X series to India and had launched the new Realme X smartphone alongside the Realme 3i smartphone in the country.

The company claims the elevating front camera is said to be having prolonged life with unto 2,00,000 slide cycles, meaning the elevating camera stays intact even after taking 50 selfies a day in 10 years, suggests the company.

As for the image optics, the mid-range Realme X features 48MP dual rear cameras, meaning the 48MP Sony IMX 586 sensor with f/1.7 aperture coupled with a 5MP secondary camera. The primary sensor comes with Quad Bayer pixel binning technology to achieve the 48MP image. The rear cameras are AI-powered and come with Nightscape mode for better low-light photos, and they further come with Chroma Boost mode, portrait mode, and a speedy shot more as well.
