IFA 2020 will be a heavily pandemic-adapted, mostly virtual event with few actual real-world attendees. A Realme executive has confirmed that the brand will have a presence at this show in any case. It will take that opportunity to make a "big announcement" during the conference.

The IFA organisation is calling the 2020 version of its flagship Berlin event a "Special Edition". This is mainly because the event, which normally pulls in hundreds and hundreds of visitors in the real per hour, is restricted to only a few thousand actual attendees this year. These measures will be in line with the city's prevailing social distancing and anti-contamination regulations; however, the conference's actual content may still be available online.

This may be why many OEMs are still planning to take part in IFA Special Edition this year. One of these is Realme, which has just confirmed its attendance at the show. One of its senior staff members, Madhav Sheth, has also stated that the brand has a "big announcement" to make in conjunction with the major European tech show.

In teasing Realme's contribution, IFA's Twitter account has posted an image of the X3 SuperZoom, as if to hint at the nature of this announcement. However, this phone is already on sale in Europe, at a price of €499 (~US$570).

Therefore, the presentation in question may concern another, similar phone: the rumored X3 Pro, perhaps? This device is thought to be the flagship of its series, as it is predicted to rock the Snapdragon 865 SoC and UFS 3.1 storage.
