The Realme 6s made a surprise entry at the Realme X3 SuperZoom launch event, this will make the European phone market to have more available options. The good news is that the new phone comes with a decent price which is slightly lower than the Realme 6 that was launched in Europe in early April. Let me show you what the 6s is all about.
Realme 6s Features
So, what features has changed between the new Realme 6s and the former Realme 6? Well, nothing much besides the main camera on the rear – it now has a 48MP ISOCELL GW1 sensor instead of 64MP. The other three cameras – the 8MP ultrawide (119°), 2MP B&W portrait cam and 2MP macro shooter are the same. This goes for the 16MP selfie camera and its punch hole too.
The rear camera supports the same modes, including Super Nightscape 2.0, Chroma Boost and others. The front camera has similar skills with both Portrait and Portrait Nightscape modes as well as the ability to capture 120fps slow-mo video.
Speaking of video, the Realme 6s can record at up to 4K resolution (unlike the 6i) and supports UIS and UIS Max video stabilization pictures (if you’re wondering about the difference, Max uses the ultra-wide instead of the main cam, both UIS options go down to 1080p resolution).
The Realme 6s has a 90Hz Ultra Smooth display, a 6.5-inch panel with 1080p+ resolution, covered with Gorilla Glass 3. The software can automatically switch between 60Hz and 90Hz, depending on the content. This is an LCD so the fingerprint reader is mounted on the side. For comparison, the 6i has a 720p+ display.
The Realme 6s is powered by the MediaTek Helio G90T chipset, another major upgrade over the “i” version. With two Cortex-A76 and six A55 cores as well as a Mali-G76 MC GPU, this 12nm chip packs a lot of punch for this segment. Again, it’s paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage (UFS 2.1. There’s a dedicated microSD card slot if you need more.
It is powered by a 4300mAh battery that supports 30W Flash Charge, which can charge the battery from 0 to 100% in 55 minutes. If you only charge for 30 minutes, you will get a 70% charge. The phone can also work with 15W USB Power Delivery chargers, so you can do quick top-ups with various non-Realme chargers and power banks. Besides the USB-C port, there’s a 3.5mm headphone jack and both are sealed to keep water out.
Realme 6s Price and Availability
The Realme 6s goes on pre-sale today and will be officially available from June 2, 2020. It comes with only one memory configuration of 4GB RAM and 64Gb storage which costs just €200 in Europe. The original Realme 6 starts at €230 with the same memory configuration, so you can see it is cheaper. The Realme6i costs €200 when it was launched few months ago, but it cannot be compared with the 6s.
