Realme 3 has just become official, the latest midrange flagship from the OPPO sub-brand.
The new Realme 3 brings some design and hardware refresh over its predecessor, the Realme 2. This one now has new color gradient design — there’s the Radiant Blue and Dynamic Black, while a Classic Black option is still available for those who want a more subtle route.
Realme also upgrades the processor to the latest MediaTek Helio P70 chipset. You can have it bundled with either 3GB/32GB of 4GB/64GB of RAM and expandable storage.
To complete the experience, it also boasts a generous 4,230mAh battery. The same enormous capacity that the budget-friendly Realme C1 has.
The Realme C1 also has a 13-megapixel primary camera with a wide f/1.8 aperture and a secondary 2-megapixel one for depth-sensing. There’s also the Nightscape feature, which will allow users to take low-light photos with great clarity.
While on the front we have a 13-megapixel camera for selfies, partnered with AI face beautification, and is also used for the face unlock feature. You can also find a fingerprint scanner on the back.
