Realme has been aggressively launching products in the Indian market. The only break that occurred in their launch schedule was because of the unavoidable circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. With the lockdown in India now being decentralized and mostly lifted, product launches have gotten back on track. Realme is now looking forward to launching the Realme X3 and the Realme X3 SuperZoom in India.

The Realme X3 SuperZoom has already been launched in Europe in May 2020, so we have a fair idea of what to expect out of this smartphone. The highlight of this device is the fact that it comes with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ SoC, a 120Hz LCD display, and a periscope shooter. The SoC choice is particularly interesting in this case because flagships with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 have been prohibitively expensive. With the Snapdragon 855+ at the fore, Realme will be able to offer an exciting user experience while still maintaining a good price point. The 12GB/256GB variant of the device was launched for €499 in Europe, which converts into ~₹42,750 at current conversion rates. Realme could possibly offer a lower RAM variant in India. That, coupled with the government incentives, could give us a lower price point in the country.

In addition to the Realme X3 SuperZoom, Realme is also teasing the Realme X3. Previous reports suggest that the device will come with the same Snapdragon 855+ SoC, as well as the 120Hz display. Changes are expected on the camera setup and possibly on lower-tech RAM and storage.
