Realme 6 launches in Europe with 90Hz displays, 64MP cameras, MediaTek Helio G90T alongside Realme 6i and Realme C3 Global variant

Realme has had quite an eventful year so far. While the majority of its launches this year have catered to Asian markets, especially India, the company did launch in 5G flagship – the Realme X50 Pro (first impressions) – in Europe and in India last month. Since then, the COVID-19 pandemic has slowed down its launches, perhaps impacting it the most in India. But despite hiccups, the global launches continue. Today, Realme launched the Realme 6, Realme 6i, and Realme C3 global variant in Europe over an online live stream.

Realme 6

Starting off, Realme 6 is the newest mid-ranger from the company. While the nomenclature suggests the Realme 6 succeeds the Realme 5, it actually sits almost at the same price point as the Realme 5 Pro (review). Meanwhile, although the Realme 6 Pro (review) was also launched in India, it wasn’t even mentioned at the event.

The key highlights of the Realme 6 include its Full HD+ hole-punch LCD display with a 90Hz refresh rate, the 64MP quad cameras on the back, 30W fast wired charging. It runs on the MediaTek Helio G90T platform and comes in 4GB and 8GB RAM variants with up to 128GB of UFS 2.1 NAND storage.

Among other design changes over the Realme 5, the Realme 6 features a side-mounted fingerprint scanner and a USB-C port. It runs on Realme UI which is a fork of ColorOS 7 and is based on Android 10.

Realme 6i

Although the Realme 5i was launched just a couple of months ago with the specifications resembling the older Realme 5, the Realme 6i was launched in Myanmar earlier this month. Unlike the predecessor, however, the Realme 6i varies greatly from the Realme 6. Design-wise, the Realme 6i sports interesting patterns that have been named after milk and green tea.

Realme 6i

The Realme 6i is the first phone in the world to run on MediaTek Helio G80 chipset. Unlike the Asian model, however, buyers wouldn’t get to choose between different configurations. The European variant is only available in a 4GB+128GB option. The Realme 6i also comes with a quad-camera setup, including a 48MP primary sensor. The phone also gets a massive 5,000mAh battery along with 18W charging support through the USB-C port.

The Realme 6i also comes with Realme UI based on Android 10 out of the box.

Realme C3 Global

Alongside the Realme 6 and 6i, Realme C3 has also been launched for the European markets. The phone differs from the Realme C3 launched in India last month and matches the variant launched later in Thailand. While matches the Indian variant to quite an extent, the global variant features three cameras on the back as opposed to two on the former along with a fingerprint scanner.

The Realme C3 global version also runs on MediaTek Helio G70 and we can expect similar performance as we saw in our gaming review of the phone. Realme has 3GB RAM and 64GB of storage. The additional camera on the phone is a 2MP macro camera with a fixed focal length of 4cm.

Like the other two phones, Realme C3 also runs Realme UI based on Android 10.
