Realme has announced that the Q3 smartphone (or possibly smartphones) will debut on April 22, 2021. The line has also been confirmed to be the OEM's first to feature the new MediaTek Dimensity 1100 SoC. Their maker has also strongly hinted that the new Q-series devices will have 120Hz displays, even though it might start at the ~US$150 level.

Realme has started to promote successors for the Q2 and Q2 Pro ahead of their launch, which is now set to go ahead in about 2 days from now (April 20, 2021). The OEM has also now confirmed earlier rumors that this new series will be the one to bring the Dimensity 1100 platform to its brand.

Speaking of its brand, the Q3 is also expected to introduce an innovative new rear panel style: it is currently teased as being phosphorescent, perhaps to the point of being hi-vis, in parts. Realme has also hinted that these distinctive accents might be super-imposed on an on-trend neon-yellow rear panel in one SKU.

On the other hand, a possible Q3 Pro has been spotted on TENAA in a more sober, standard black ahead of its launch. This device (the RMX2205) has also allegedly surfaced on Geekbench 5 with 8GB of RAM to go along with its ARM MT6891Z/CZA (the 1100) processor.

Realme has also let it slip that the Q3 series will benefit from relatively high-end 120Hz displays, as well as some other tantalizing little details such as that at least 1 variant will be 8.4mm in depth (thereby hinting at its battery size?) and will have "VC" cooling.

Despite all this, the OEM might aim for a "budget king" status for the upcoming devices. They might start at as little as 1000 yuan (US$154) on their impending Chinese-market debut.

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.
