Realme introduced its 6 series of smartphones to Europe via an online launch today (March 31, 2020). It consists of the 6 and 6i - with no mention of the Pro variant available in other regions. This event also debuted the MediaTek Helio G70-powered C3 in this market.

Realme's latest product launch has unleashed the 6 smartphone series on the European market. The brand touts the former, a device powered by the MediaTek Helio G90T SoC, as the "new Pro", comparing its punch-hole camera, 30-watt (W) fast-charging and quad rear cameras with a 64MP main sensor against the pre-exising 5 Pro.

On that note, however, this event did not acknowledge this phone's own direct successor as expected. Therefore, this product may be getting its own European launch later in the year - or is simply not coming to this region. This event did also launch the new 6i, a device that somewhat makes up for an HD+ screen and slower 18W charging with unique esthetics and a 5000mAh battery. It was also joined on stage by the C3.

Besides these new prospects, the brand also unveiled its ambition to bring 5G phones to more European countries (including Greece, the Czech Republic and Spain), as well as a plan to bring Realme Link, a unified hub for an expanded ecosystem of IoT products from this brand, to their continent.

The Realme 6 starts at €229.90 (~US$252) for a 4GB RAM/64GB internal storage SKU, or €269.90 (~$295) for a 4/128GB model. Alternatively, its top-end 8/128GB option goes for €299.90 (~$328). The 6i's single 4/128GB SKU is priced at €199.90 (~$219), whereas the 3/64GB C3 is €159.90 (~$175). They are available via Amazon or Realme's own European site.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
