Realme launched its Realme X smartphone in China and soon after, the company confirmed that it will be launching the phone in India as well. The company’s CEO, Madahav Sheth has been teasing the launch of Realme X from some time now and a Spider-Man Edition of the handset was recently announced. While it is now confirmed that the smartphone will launch on July 15 in India, the online retailer Flipkart has now hosted a dedicated microsite promoting it, which means that the Realme X will be made available in India via Flipkart. 

The dedicated webpage for the Realme X on Flipkart cites a poll that apparently reflects the ‘Real Voice Of India.’ It states that 62 percent voted for a ‘stylish’ pop-up camera, while 66 percent asked for an in-display fingerprint sensor and 81 percent wanted a good rear camera. However, there are no details as to where this poll was held and what was the sample size. Additionally, it doesn’t take a detective to find out that the aforementioned features “asked” by people in the poll are all present in the Realme X. 

Relame X specifications

The Realme X sports a 6.53-inch AMOLED display that is protected by Gorilla Glass 5. The phone is said to feature a 91.2-percent screen-to-body ratio and it comes equipped with a sixth-generation optical in-display fingerprint sensor, which is claimed to be 65-percent faster than the previous generation. The handset runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor and features a copper-pipe cooling, which is said to bring down the phone’s temperature by 15.2 percent while gaming. 

There is no info on the RAM and storage variants Realme X could be introduced with in India. In China, the phone was announced with up to 8GB RAM and 128GB storage.

In terms of optics, the device comes equipped with a 48MP Sony IMX 586 sensor with a 6P lens. There is a 5MP secondary sensor. On the front is a pop-up 16MP Sony IMX471 sensor with f/2.0 aperture lens. The rear camera setup on the phone features special modes to improve the photography experience. There is a Super Resolution Mode which is said to intelligently merge eight images into one, to create high definition photos. Another Super Night Scene mode is said to improve low-light photography. The Chroma Boost mode on the phone is claimed to improve the dynamic range in an image. The phone also features the ability to shoot 960fps slo-mo videos.

The phone is powered by a 3765mAh battery with VOOC 3.0 support.

When it comes to the Realme X Spider-Man edition, the phone will be launched in India alongside the regular Relame X. The special edition Realme X has all the same specs as the regular version of the device. However, it's packed in a special themed gift box and comes with a limited edition Spider-Man protective case as well as a preinstalled ColorOS 6 Spider-Man theme. The Spider-Man theme includes customised wallpapers and icon packs. With this device, Realme is further targetting younger buyers, a strategy the company has stuck with since its inception.
