[Update: Processor Specification] Realme 6 series will have a 64MP main camera, 90Hz display, and 30W charging
Chinese OEM Realme kicked off 2020 with the launch of the Realme C3 — a MediaTek Helio G70 powered budget device that offers excellent gaming performance. The company followed that up with the Realme X50 Pro, its first 5G enabled flagship that packs in top-of-the-line specifications. Adam from our team described the Snapdragon 865-powered flagship as a “well-thought-out package with good features and great performance” and I couldn’t agree more. It seems like the company is on the right track with its launches in 2020 and I have high hopes for the upcoming Realme 6 series which will be launched in India on March 5th.
As part of the Realme 6 series, the company is expected to launch two devices — the Realme 6 and 6 Pro. Along with these two devices, the company will also be launching a Realme 6i, a direct successor to the Realme 5i from earlier this year, which we’ve previously spotted in an FCC listing. Just a couple of days ahead of the launch, Realme has set up a teaser website for the upcoming Realme 6 series which reveals a few key details about the upcoming devices.
As per the website, both devices in the Realme 6 series will feature a quad-camera setup on the back with a 64MP primary sensor, a wide-angle lens, a telephoto lens with support for up to 20x zoom, and a macro lens. On the front, the device will feature a hole-punch display for the selfie-shooter, with the Realme 6 featuring a single circular cutout and the Pro featuring a pill-shaped dual camera cutout.
The devices will also feature a high refresh rate 90Hz FHD+ display and support for 30W fast charging. Features like high refresh rate displays and 30W fast charging were previously limited to flagship devices and it’s great to see manufacturers bringing them to mid-range devices. It’s worth noting that the Realme 6 series won’t be the first to bring these features to the mid-range segment. Xiaomi’s sub-brand POCO launched the POCO X2 (review) earlier this month and that too features a 120Hz high refresh-rate display and support for 27W fast charging at a very affordable price point.
Update: Realme 6 to come with MediaTek G90T and Realme 6 Pro to come with Snapdragon 720G
According to a new leak from 91Mobiles citing industry sources, the Realme 6 Pro will come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G SoC. This leak gets credibility from official revelations made last month by Realme’s CEO Mr. Madhav Sheth.

While Mr. Sheth’s early tweet did not mention the Realme 6 Pro definitively, the device pictured in the teaser aligns with the designs presented by the Flipkart teasers for the same.
As for the Realme 6, 91Mobiles quotes a certification listing from WiFi Alliance which mentions that the RMX2001 will come with the MT6785T SoC. The device codename was traced to be belonging to the Realme 6, while the MT6785T refers to the MediaTek G90T.
It is very likely Realme reveals the processor specification themselves in the coming days.
