Realme 6 Series Coming on March 5: What to Expect
Rumours regarding the Realme 6 series have been making rounds on the web for a while now. The Realme 6 series will have three smartphones- Realme 6, Realme 6 Pro and the Realme 6i which will arrive at a later date since the Realme 5i was launched at the beginning of this year.
Talking about the Realme 6 Pro, it is expected to be a major upgrade over the Realme 5 Pro. We can see the company finally moving to the glass back and USB Type-C port with the Realme 6 Pro alongside some other features like 90Hz refresh rate, dual punch-hole screen and fast charging. We are expecting the Realme 6 Pro to pack at least 30W fast charging technology to beat the competition. As said earlier, the Realme 6 Pro will have 64MP quad-camera setup, but it will be interesting to see which sensor will be used by Realme- Sony IMX686 or Samsung ISOCELL GW1. The processor could remain the same- Snapdragon 712 or the company might go with the newly launched Snapdragon 720G SoC.
Moving onto the Realme 6, it will also be a major upgrade over the Realme 5. The phone is also expected to receive some noteworthy upgrades like Full HD+ display, dual punch-hole selfie cameras, 64MP quad-camera setup on the back and fast charging support. Rumours indicate the Realme 6 will be powered by the MediaTek Helio G90 SoC.
Realme 6 and Realme 6 Pro: Expected Pricing in India
With the Realme 5i retailing at Rs 8,999, we can expect the Realme 6 to start at Rs 9,999 and go upwards. The Realme 6 Pro, on the other hand, will likely be available at a starting Rs 14,999 like the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro. The Realme Pro devices always started at Rs 13,999 since its inception, so the company may retain that price tag. The Realme 6 Pro will take on the Redmi Note 8 Pro which is already the best smartphone under Rs 15,000. If the Realme 6 Pro features an in-display fingerprint scanner under Rs 15,000, then Xiaomi will have to bring the successor to Redmi Note 8 Pro very soon.
