Realme X3 Superzoom: Specs, price in the Philippines
Priced at P24,990, the phone goes up against the P26,990 POCO F2 Pro

Realme releases its new flagship X3 Superzoom phone, with pre-orders running from July 9 to July 17, and retail availability shortly after that.

The phone is priced at P24,990, equipped with Qualcomm’s previous-generation flagship Snapdragon 855+ chipset. At this price, it goes against the P26,990 POCO F2 Pro, which has the current generation flagship Snapdragon 865 chipset.

The X3 Superzoom is also notable for having a 120Hz display, double the standard 60Hz refresh rate for phones, 30W fast-charge, 12GB of RAM, and 5x telephoto and 60x digital superzoom capabilities – features once found in more expensive flagships.

We’ll have a review soon of how well these work in Realme’s phone. Here’s the spec list:

  • Snapdragon 855+ chipset
  • 6.6-inch full HD 120Hz display
  • 64MP main camera + 8MP ultra-wide + 8MP periscope tele (5x telephoto lens + 60x digital zuperzoom) + 2MP macro
  • Dual front cameras (32MP wide-angle + 8MP ultra-wide)
  • Night photography modes (Starry Mode, Super Nightscape 4.0)
  • 4,200 mAh battery
  • 30W fast-charge (Dart Flash Charge)
  • 12GB RAM + 256GB storage
  • USB Type-C
  • No headphone jack
  • Colors: arctic white, glacier blue
  • Price: P24,990

Compared to the POCO F2 Pro, the realme X3 Superzoom has more zoom capabilities but forgoes a depth camera used for bokeh. The X3 Superzoom also has 2 front cameras compared to the single one on the F2 Pro. The X3 Superzoom has double the RAM and storage of the P26,990 POCO F2 PRO (6GB RAM + 128GB storage).

The F2 Pro has the aforementioned Snapdragon 865 chipset. It also has an under-display fingerprint sensor, and a bigger 4,700 mAh battery. The screen size is about the same, but the F2 Pro’s refresh rate is the standard 60Hz. –
