Realme XT 730G India Launch Set for December 17, Will Take on Upcoming Xiaomi Mi Note 10

Realme XT 730G will go official in India on December 17 as the company today sent out media invites for the same. Alongside the XT 730G, Realme will also bring its first-ever truly wireless earbuds as it teased at the Realme X2 Pro launch last month. The Realme XT 730G is one of the much-awaited mid-range phones of 2019 and we’re excited to see how Realme prices this phone. The Realme XT 730G will take on the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 which is also set to reach the Indian market by the end of this month. So it’s all over the Redmi-Realme war again, and this time, pricing will be the key for both the brands. The Realme XT 730G is already available in China as Realme X2. It’s the same Realme XT smartphone with Snapdragon 730G SoC and 30W fast charging support.

Realme XT 730G: Specifications and Expected Indian Pricing

The Realme XT 730G, as mentioned above, is a Realme XT with two new features. For starters, the name itself suggests the upcoming Realme phone will have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G chipset. We haven’t seen a Snapdragon 730G smartphone under Rs 30,000 in India, so the Realme XT 730G would be the affordable phone with SD 730G SoC.

As for the specs, the XT 730G sports a 6.4-inch Full HD+ display on the front with an in-display fingerprint scanner and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. Since it’s a gaming focussed phone, the phone may come with up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. We believe the Realme XT 730G is the same Realme X2 smartphone which the company launched in China back in August this year. The phone rocks 64MP quad-camera setup and a 32MP front-facing camera. It’s backed by a 4000mAh battery along with support for Super VOOC 4.0 technology.

Moving onto the pricing, we’re expecting the Realme XT 730G’s base variant with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage to retail at Rs 19,999 in the Indian market. At the same price, we also have the Redmi K20, which is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 chipset. Realme may undercut the Redmi K20’s current pricing by a small margin. Since the Realme XT already available at a starting price of Rs 15,999 in India, the Rs 19,999 for the XT 730G will be a reasonable one.

Realme XT 730G vs Xiaomi Mi Note 10

The Xiaomi Mi Note 10 is a different smartphone altogether and a Mi Note series phone is coming to the Indian market for the first time. The Mi Note 10 flaunts a 6.47-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED screen on the front with an in-display fingerprint scanner. Underneath, it has the same Snapdragon 730G SoC as the Realme XT 730G, and this phone will also arrive in multiple storage variants with up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.

The USP of the Mi Note 10 is the Penta-camera setup on the back which also has a 108MP primary lens. Other four sensors on the rear side include 12MP portrait lens, 20MP ultra wide-angle camera, 5MP ultra-telephoto camera offering 50X digital zoom and 2MP macro camera to shoot the closeup shots. The Mi Note 10 is backed by a 5260mAh battery and has support for 30W fast charging as well.

Thanks to the multiple cameras on the back, the Mi Note 10 could retail for over Rs 25,000 in the Indian market.
