The X is Realme's next smartphone release. Previous leaks about this phone have suggested that it will have premium camera specs, in that its main sensor will be 48MP. This has been confirmed by its OEM ahead of its launch. Furthermore, the module in question will be the high-end Sony IMX586 that also graces the Redmi Note 7 Pro.

Realme (OPPO's 'youth-friendly' brand) is set to launch its latest phone, the X, at an event on May 15, 2019. However, its main specs and standout features may already have been outlined at this point. The device has gone through TENAA certification, which spells out most of the phone's specs and appearance.

The regulatory body now lists the X as a phone with a 2340x1080, 19.5:9, 6.5-inch AMOLED display. It has only 1 storage SKU (64GB), which has 4GB in RAM terms. It runs Android 9.0 (Pie) and has a 3680mAh battery. This, as we have already heard, will be charged using third-generation VOOC charging from the Realme parent company.

However, the Realme X's best bit of news (leaked in this case by the brand itself on Weibo) is that its main rear camera sensor is a 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor. It is paired with a 5MP module. Then again, those hoping for the low-cost flagship the X is shaping up to be may be brought up a little short by its CPU spec.

It is listed as a 2.2GHz octa-core processor, which puts it well outside the realms of Snapdragon 855 territory. On the other hand, the unveiling of a competitive price on May 15 could still make the Realme X a new rival for phones such as the Redmi Note 7 Pro.
