The upcoming Realme X smartphone recently made its way to BIS certification indicating that an Indian launch is imminent. The Realme X is expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 730 chipset and will feature a 48 MP primary shooter. The smartphone is expected to be launched at an event in China on May 15.

Earlier this year, Realme India CEO Madhav Sheth hinted at a Realme phone with a 48 MP camera. We are now getting to know that this device would be the Realme X and is all set to launch in China on May 15 alongside the Chinese variant of the Realme 3 Pro. Besides China, the Realme X would also be launching in India soon going by a recent Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) certification listing.

The BIS listing reveals two models: RMX1901 and RMX1945 both of which are being associated with the Realme X as per word on the streets. The RMX1901 variant, which recently popped up on TENAA, is expected to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 SoC and will have an in-display fingerprint sensor. The device will also support OPPO's VOOC 3.0 fast charging technology for quickly topping up its 3,680 mAH battery.

One of the highlights of the Realme X is its purported 48 MP rear camera, which will be supported by a 5 MP depth sensor. A pop-up selfie camera is also on the cards as was teased recently by Realme in a video released on Weibo. The handset will ship with ColorOS 6 based on Android 9 Pie.

The Realme X is tipped to arrive in three variants — 6 GB/64 GB for ¥1,599 (₹16,400), 6 GB/128 GB for ¥1,799 (₹18,500), and 8 GB/128 GB for ¥1,999 (₹20,500).

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
