After lots of teaser campaigns, Realme finally unveiled its 64MP camera flagship today – the Realme XT. Apart from its camera, the phone also has some other decent features and specs which I will be showing you in this post. Read on and get the full gist.
Realme XT Features
The Realme XT runs on a 10nm Snapdragon 712 chipset paired with 4 GB, 6GB or 8GB of RAM. The storage options are 64GB or 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage. As usual, the internal storages can be expanded further via a dedicated microSD card slot.
The XT comes with an increased power pack when compared to the Realme X – a 4000mAh battery, and you can top it all up in 80 minutes with the included 20W VOOC adapter.
Maintaining the Realme’s tradition of original design, the smartphone features a 3D curved glass rear panel with a ‘Hyperbola Light Streak’ effect. That glass is Gorilla Glass 5.
On the front the Realme XT boasts a 6.4-inch 2340x1080px Super AMOLED display. Built inside is a fingerprint scanner that promises super fast (334ms is the exact claim) unlock and a doubled sensitivity area.
On the software front, the Realme XT runs ColorOS 6 under Android 9 Pie, equipped with HyperBoost 2.0 for a claimed lower latency and faster frame rates during gaming. Google’s Digital Wellbeing and a system-wide Dark Mode are part of the package too. The manufacturer promises an update to Android 10 in the first quarter of 2020.
But the Realme XT’s key feature is its main 64MP f/1.8 camera. It is Samsung’s GW1 sensor and at 1/1.72″ it is up to 34% bigger than the 48MP sensor found on competing phones. The 64MP sensor uses 4-in-1 pixel binning to deliver a 16MP images with 1.6μm individual-sized pixels.
The phoine will snap 16MP photos by default but thereis a special Ultra 64MP mode that will capture 9216×6912px stills.
The other cameras you will find on the rear are an 8MP 119-degree ultrawide, a 2MP depth camera and a 2MP macro snapper that can capture fine detail at 4cm. At the front side is a 16MP f/2.0 selfie shooter.
