Realme lifted the covers off its first 150W fast charging phone, the Realme GT Neo 3, in India today.

If you’re in the market for a budget-friendly tablet or TWS earbuds, here’s everything you need to know about Realme’s latest offerings.
Realme Pad Mini
The Realme Pad Mini is an entry-level Android tablet geared toward students and price-conscious buyers. It features an 8.7-inch LCD with chunky bezels and a 1340×800 resolution. On the inside, it packs a Unisoc T616 octa-core processor, paired with up to 4G RAM and 64GB storage.
In the camera department, the Realme Pad Mini offers an 8MP rear-facing camera and a 5MP selfie shooter. The tablet is backed by a 6,400mAh battery with 18W wired fast charging support. Other noteworthy features include dual-band Wi-Fi support, Bluetooth 5.0, a USB Type-C port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and dual speakers.
