Realme announces the Narzo lineup powered by MediaTek Helio G70 and G80 SoCs starting from ₹8,499
After several postponements, Realme has finally made its Narzo lineup official. The Narzo series is being pegged as a phone for Realme enthusiasts with a focus on gaming and overall performance. The Narzo series is comprised of the Narzo 10, which is essentially a Realme 6i, and the Narzo 10A, which is nothing but a Realme C3 Thailand SKU.
Realme Narzo 10 - Specs and Pricing
Of the two, the Realme Narzo 10 is the higher specc'ed device featuring a MediaTek Helio G80 SoC, a 6.5-inch HD+ 20:9 display, 4 GB RAM, 128 GB of storage that is expandable to up to 256 GB via microSD card, a quad-camera setup (f/1.8 48 MP + f/2.25 8 MP 119° wide-angle camera, f/2.4 2 MP macro lens, and an f/2.4 2 MP B&W portrait lens), and a 16 MP selfie camera. The Narzo 10 is powered by a 5,000 mAh battery that supports 18W fast charging via USB Type-C.
The Narzo 10 will be available in That White and That Green colors from 12 noon IST on May 18 on realme.com, Flipkart.com, and in select offline stores for ₹11,999 (US$158).
Realme Narzo 10A - Specs and Pricing
The Narzo 10A is the more budget-friendly offering of the two and is powered by the MediaTek Helio G70 SoC, a 6.5-inch HD+ display, 3 GB RAM, 32 GB storage that is expandable up to 256 GB, a triple-camera setup (f/1.8 12 MP, f/2.4 2 MP portrait lens, and an f/2.4 2 MP macro lens), and a 5 MP selfie camera. The Narzo 10A is also powered by a 5,000 mAh battery but features only the conventional 10A charging via microUSB.
The Narzo 10A will be first available offline on May 18 followed by online availability on realme.com and Flipkart.com from 12 noon IST on May 22 for a price of ₹8,499 (US$112).
Both phones will run on Realme UI based on Android 10. A HD+ display is not something we expect in 2020, but it should help in affording great runtimes in combination with that huge 5,000 mAh battery. It is not hard to see what Realme is up to here. The company is probably testing waters with the introduction of a new brand and may scale up the specs based on market demand. Who knows, we may even get to see Narzo getting spun off into an independent brand sometime in the future.
