Realme X
Realme X is the company’s upcoming flagship.

Realme will be holding an event in its home country, China on May 15. At the event the company is expected to launch its upcoming flagship smartphone, Realme X. This will be the company’s most expensive smartphone till date and is expected to be launched in other countries including India soon after its China launch.

Here is a list of all the things we currently know about the upcoming Realme X smartphone from a pop-up camera to the Snapdragon 730 processor.

Realme X: Price

The flagship smartphone is expected to be priced at Yuan 1,599 (approximately Rs 16,500) for the base variant, whereas, the top end variant will be priced at Yuan 1,999 (approximately Rs 20,000).

Some reports do claims that the company will also be releasing a Pro variant of the device powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor at the event, however, we expect the company to launch that variant of the device at a later date.

Motorised Pop-up front camera module

Realme is owned by BBK Electronics, the company that also owns other popular smartphone brands including Vivo, Oppo and OnePlus. Oppo and Vivo already have smartphones featuring a motorised pop-up selfie camera, whereas OnePlus is expected to launch its OnePlus 7 Pro smartphone with a pop-up selfie camera on May 14, globally.

Considering all of this it is easy to believe all the reports that point towards, the upcoming Realme X having a motorised pop-up selfie camera. The camera, according to all the reports will be positioned in the middle like the Oppo F11 Pro.

Full-screen display, In-display fingerprint scanner

Thanks to the motorised pop-up selfie camera, the Realme X is being reported to come with a 6.5-inch bezel-less AMOLED display. The device will feature a similar display to the one seen on the Vivo V15 Pro.

The device also does not sport a capacitive fingerprint scanner on the back, which means that it will most probably come with an in-display fingerprint sensor. Which also explains the addition of an AMOLED display panel instead of using a much cheaper LCD panel.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 processor

Qualcomm recently launched its new Snapdragon 730 and 730G processors, which focus on gaming, photography and Artificial Intelligence (AI). Various reports state that the company’s new flagship, Realme X will be focused on gaming and will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 processor.

VOOC 3.0 Flash Charge technology

Lastly, we know that the company recently provided Oppo’s proprietary VOOC 3.0 Flash Charge technology on its recently launched Realme 3 Pro smartphone. It is expected to provide the consumers with the same technology on the Realme X.

As of now, all of this is what we know about the upcoming Realme X from the leaks, rumours and reports. We will have to wait till May 15 to know what the company has in store for us with its Realme X smartphone.
