Realme XT goes on flash sale on Flipkart — 64 MP quad-camera, Super AMOLED display, and Snapdragon 712 for ₹15,999
After launching the Realme XT in China a few weeks ago, the once Oppo-sub-brand has launched the phone in India this week. The Realme XT uses Samsung's new ISOCELL G1 64 MP sensor and is powered by the 10nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 SoC.
For a mid-range smartphone, the Realme XT sports a decent spec sheet. The phone features a 6.4-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display with a tear-drop notch and an embedded Goodix 3.0 fingerprint sensor that has vastly improved unlocking speed than previous iterations.
The camera is the obvious standout feature of the Realme XT. The 64 MP camera sports a large 1/1.72-inch GW1 sensor with 4-in-1 pixel binning and an f/1.8 aperture for quality night shots. A slew of AI enhancements help in further enhancing the photos along with Realme's Chroma Boost feature for increased color saturation. A 119° ultra-wide angle lens, a macro lens, and a portrait lens complete the quad-camera setup.
Realme continues to rely on Oppo's ColorOS 6 based on Android 9 Pie as the OS of choice for now. It includes ColorOS's features such as HyperBoost 2.0 and Game Space that aim to offer a lag-free gaming experience. The company is expected to launch its own RealmeOS based on Android 10 sometime later this year. A 4,000 mAh battery with support for 20W VOOC Flash Charge 3.0 completes the specifications.
Alongside the Realme XT, the company is also expanding its accessories portfolio by introducing the Realme Buds wireless earphones a new range of Realme Power Banks with a 10,000 mAh battery. Realme accessories will be available for purchase from September 30.
The Realme XT will be available in Pearl White and Pearl Blue colors and will be available on Flipkart for ₹15,999 (US$224) for 4/64 GB, ₹16,999 (US$238), and ₹18,999 (US$265) for the 8/128 GB variant along with a host of promotions and no-cost EMI offers. Unfortunately, Realme seems to rely on the flash sale model for now so you will have to wait till September 30, 12 AM IST for the next purchase opportunity.
