Realme X specs suggest it could be the true Redmi Note 7 Pro rival
Realme X is set to launch in China on May 15 along with Realme X Youth.
Realme launched 'Realme 3 Pro' to compete with Xiaomi's Redmi Note 7 Pro smartphone. Realme 3 Pro did take on Redmi Note 7 in some departments such as performance and selfie camera. But apart from that Realme 3 Pro just came out as an upgraded version of Realme 3. With Realme X, the company finally has the chance to outshine the rival.
As pointed out in our review as well, Realme 3 Pro's camera didn't really surpass Redmi Note 7 Pro's. Realme X is expected to fix this with 48-megapixel camera with Sony IMX586 sensor - exactly the same sensor that runs on Xiaomi's Redmi Note 7 Pro.
Realme is also stepping up the design game with notch-less 6.5-inch full HD+ edge-to-edge screen with a pop-up selfie camera. The phone is likely to come with 48-megapixel and 5-megapixel sensors on the back and 16-megapixel selfie camera. For performance, it will rely on an octa-core processor clocked at 2.2GHz with 4GB RAM and 64GB built-in storage.
Another differentiator will be the in-screen fingerprint sensor - which is exclusive to few premium smartphones such as OnePlus 6T. Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 doesn't have this feature.
Xiaomi's Redmi Note 7 Pro comes with 48-megapixel rear camera, Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 processor, 6.3-inch full HD+ dot notch display, Corning Gorilla Glass 5, Type-C Port, 4,000mAh battery, and up to 6GB of RAM.
Xiaomi, however, is already working on an improved Redmi phone, dubbed as Redmi X. The phone is confirmed to run on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 processor. It is also expected to come with a pop-up selfie camera, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. The smartphone could feature a 6.39-inch full HD+ display and feature a triple-rear camera setup.
