Realme launched its next-generation X-series smartphone called the Realme X3 SuperZoom in Europe last month. The company has been hinting at the launch of the smartphone in India ever since Madhav Sheth shared a Starry Mode image shot by the SuperZoom Edition. The brand has now launched the Realme X3 series in India today, which also includes a standard Realme X3 variant.
Both these smartphones come with 120Hz displays, Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ SoCs, 64MP quad-cameras and more as their highlights. The distinguishing features between the two models are the zoom lens on the back and the primary selfie lens on the front. Also, the RAM and storage configurations differ on both models. Let’s take a look at what these phones offer.
