After a tireless teaser campaign, Realme unveiled its 64MP flagship today.
The Realme XT is powered by a 10nm Snapdragon 712 chipset with either 4GB, 6GB or 8GB of RAM and either 64GB or 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage. As usual the built-in storage is expandable through a dedicated microSD card slot.
The XT brings an increased power pack to the Realme X - 4,000mAh - and you can top it all up in 80 minutes with the included 20W VOOC adapter.
In keeping with Realme's tradition of original design, the Realme XT features a 3D curved glass rear panel with a 'Hyperbola Light Streak' effect. That glass is Gorilla Glass 5.
On the front the Realme XT boasts a 6.4-inch 2340x1080px Super AMOLED display. Built inside is a fingerprint scanner that promises super fast (334ms is the exact claim) unlock and a doubled sensitivity area.
Software-wise the Realme XT runs ColorOS 6 under Android 9 Pie, equipped with HyperBoost 2.0 for a claimed lower latency and faster frame rates during gaming. Google's Digital Wellbeing and a system-wide Dark Mode are part of the package too. Realme promises an update to Android 10 in Q1 of 2020.
But the Realme XT's calling card is its main 64MP f/1.8 camera. It's Samsung's GW1 sensor and at 1/1.72" it's up to 34% bigger than the 48MP sensor found on competing phones. The 64MP sensor uses 4-in-1 pixel binning to deliver a 16MP images with 1.6μm individual-sized pixels.
The Realme XT will snap 16MP photos by default but there's a special Ultra 64MP mode that will capture 9216×6912px stills.
The other cameras on the rear are an 8MP 119-degree ultrawide, a 2MP depth camera and a 2MP macro snapper that can capture fine detail at 4cm. On the opposite side is a 16MP f/2.0 selfie shooter.
The Realme XT starts at INR 15,999 (€200) for the 4GB/64GB model, the 6GB/64GB is INR 16,999 (€215), while the 8GB/128GB is INR 18,999 (€240). The first sale will go live at noon on September 16.
Realme will offer special Realme Buds Wireless, priced at INR 1,799 (€23), a special XT Iconic Case for INR 399 (€5) and a 10,000mAh 18W Realme Power Bank for INR 1,299 (€16).
2MP is actually Full HD res (1080p). No social media sites can upload at that res. Even Instagram is capped at 600px iirc.
Not so fast, I use 6tag for Windows Phone and it can upload my pic regardless of 16:9 or 1:1 to near 8MP res. Actually, it upload to the max upload resolution of 2048px, so 2160px from my 8MP camera is not that far off.
