Realme Narzo 20, Narzo 20 Pro, and Narzo 20A launched in India

Realme has aggressively expanded its portfolio in India, riding upon success in the budget and early mid-range segments. Back in May 2020, the company launched its Narzo series in India with the Narzo 10 and Narzo 10A (which were supposed to launch in March 2020, but had to be delayed because of COVID-19 lockdowns). Now, shortly after the launch of the Realme 7 and Realme 7 Pro, and six months after the originally scheduled launch of the first Narzo 10, the Chinese OEM is back with the new Narzo 20 series, alongside the release of the Realme UI 2.0 based on Android 11. Meet the new Narzo 20, Narzo 20 Pro, and Narzo 20A.

The Realme Narzo 20A is the lowest product in the Narzo 20 series. The phone comes with a humble polycarbonate build, with a striking design pattern on the back. The phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 SoC, and it is coupled with 3/4GB of RAM and 32/64GB of internal storage. You do get a dedicated micsroSD card slot for expansion, and you also get a 3.5mm headphone jack. But you do lose out on a USB Type C port as the phone comes with a microUSB port. But to compensate, the phone still supports reverse wired charging.

The Realme Narzo 20A will be available in India in two colors: Victory Blue, and Glory Silver. You can get the phone for ₹8,499 (~$116) for the 3GB + 32GB variant, and ₹9,499 ( ~$130) for the 4GB + 64GB variant. The device goes on sale on Flipkart and Realme.com from September 30, 2020.

The Realme Narzo 20 sits in the middle of the Narzo 20 series. You now get an Helio G85, as compared to the Helio G80 on the Narzo 10. Much like the lower product, the Narzo 20 has a humble build that gets most of its eyeballs from the striking pattern on the back. The camera island is now a square on the back, giving the phone its unique look within Realme’s extensive lineup.

 

There’s also a few noteworthy features by itself, like the dedicated micsroSD card slot for expansion, the 3.5mm headphone jack, and you also get a USB Type-C port.

The Realme Narzo 20 will be available in India in two colors: Victory Blue, and Glory Silver. You can get the phone for ₹10,499 (~$143) for the 4GB + 64GB variant, and ₹11,499 ( ~$157) for the 4GB + 128GB variant. The device goes on sale on Flipkart and Realme.com from September 28, 2020.

The star of the show is the Realme Narzo 20 Pro, and its main highlight is the 65W SuperDart fast charging solution. While the rest of the specifications of the phone may be inline with what one expects out of an early mid-range phone, the 65W fast charging does indeed set the phone apart from the rest of the crowd. Having experienced 65W charging and seeing your phone charge back up within minutes changes your expectations from future flagships and other mid-range phones.

The pricing on the Realme Narzo 20 starts at ₹14,999 (~$205) for the 6GB + 64GB variant, and ₹16,999 (~$231) for the 8GB + 128GB variant. You can get the phone in White Knight, and Black Ninja colors. The device goes on sale on Flipkart and Realme.com from September 25, 2020.
