On: April 17, 2020

Realme had been teasing its new Narzo smartphone series, comprising of the Narzo 10 and Narzo 10A in the month of March. The two phones, which are expected to be positioned below the Realme 6 series, were initially scheduled to launch in India on March 26th. Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent lockdown in India, Realme had to indefinitely postpone the launch of the Narzo phones. While India’s lockdown is slated to continue until May 3rd, there has been some good news for smartphone brands, with the government allowing smartphone production to resume, as well as online sales of electronic devices from April 20th. To this effect, Realme has now announced a new launch date for its Narzo series, which will now take place on April 21st.

Realme will broadcast the launch of the Narzo 10 and Narzo 10A via a pre-recorded launch video. Notably, the company had already pre-recorded the launch in its office before the lockdown was announced, but delayed streaming it online since smartphone sales had come to a complete halt in the country. The company will stream the event on April 21st at 12.30pm via YouTube. The sale date for the devices hasn’t been announced yet, but we can expect it to be available for purchase online soon after the launch event.

The Realme Narzo 10 and 10A will feature 6.5-inch displays with a waterdrop notch and screen to body ratio of 89.8 percent. Both smartphones will be fitted with large 5,000mAh batteries, and while Realme has listed fast charging on its website, only the Narzo 10 is expected to offer this feature. The Narzo 10 is expected to be a rebranded Realme 6i for the Indian market, and hence we can expect it to come with the MediaTek Helio G80 chipset. The Narzo 10A will also feature a gaming-focussed processor. The Narzo 10A will feature a triple camera setup, while the more premium Narzo 10 will feature a 48MP quad cameras.
