Realme arrived in India almost eight months ago, but the brand has become very popular according to market research. Realme 3 will be released soon, and the internet is filled with rumors about the future device, with new leaks surfacing almost every day.
Recent leaks show what appear to be several images in which the upcoming device appear. We can see the back of the device which is covered in a beautiful shade of gradient that goes from black to blue and features sparkling stars. A Realme logo is placed on what seems to be the right corner of the device, but it is impossible to say if we are looking at the upper or lower side of the smartphone.
The absence of a visible fingerprint sensor may hint a great improvement as the device could use an in-display fingerprint sensor instead. The Oppo K1 offers an in-display fingerprint sensor, and the cost of the device is quite low at INR 17.000.
It is a well-known fact that Realme is a branch of Oppo and both brands manufacture their devices in India as they share the same manufacturing hub and user interface.
Realme CEO Madhav Sheth has officially confirmed that the Realme 3 will use the popular Helio P70 chip that is already present in the Realme U1. The mid-range chip is manufactured by MediaTek, and it contains eight cores fabricated with the help of 12nm technology. Four ARM Cortex -A73 and four ARM Cortex-A53 chips deliver an impressive performance that includes AI capabilities.
MediaTek notes that the chip can support face unlock and the dedicated Mali-G72 GPU should provide an excellent gaming experience. It is thought that the device will arrive with Color OS 6.0, a customized version of Android Pie.
The Realme Twitter account has recently announced that the device will be officially released on March 4 and the theme of the background image that is used in the announcement seems to be on par with the leaks.
