Realme 3 coming in Q1 2019, 48 MP handset also in the works

Realme 2 Pro will soon get a successor
The Realme 3 will be announced in the first quarter of 2019 and will probably come without a punch-hole selfie shooter and/or a triple camera setup on the back. The handset should arrive with a dual camera setup and a notch in two variants — regular and Pro. A Realme phone with a 48 MP camera is also expected to hit the market this year.

Back in 2010, today's Realme appeared as a subsidiary of OPPO carrying the "OPPO Real" name. In 2018, Realme became an independent brand and released a few affordable handsets that were well-received in India and other emerging markets. This year, we will see this young brand release at least the Realme 3 handset and a phone packing a 48 MP camera.

In a recent interview with The Indian Express, Realme India's CEO Madhav Sheth said that the Realme 3 will be introduced in the first quarter of the year and that the company sees no value in triple cameras and punch-hole selfie shooters. Considering this statement, we should expect a notched display and a dual camera setup on the back. On the other hand, Realme's CEO confirmed that the company is planning to launch a handset with a 48 MP later this year as well, probably in time for the launch of the brand's first experience store.

The aforementioned experience store is supposed to open its gates in the second half of the year. For now, Realme's team in charge of it are working on "structure and principles" and the location of this store still has to be chosen. By the end of the year, Realme should open at least a few retail stores in India, but the company's official did not reveal any other details.

India might get quite a few new retail stores from brands like Realme later this year due to the changes in the Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) norms for the e-commerce industry. According to the new rules, a vendor cannot sell for more than 25 percent of products at a marketplace, so handsets exclusively available in India via Flipkart or Amazon will soon become a thing of the past.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
