The Realme X3 SuperZoom Specs are similar to Realme X3. They both have the same 120Hz refresh rate display, same Snapdragon 855 +, and a quad-camera setup in the rear and a dual selfie camera in the front. The only distinction between these devices is the specs of the camera setup. It sports a 64 MP (f/1.8) main sensor and provides a top zoom of 60X.
Besides the similarities between the two devices, we have some really good things to talk about.
In the last few years, there has been a rise in smartphone companies aiming to deliver a flagship device in a more economical bundle in order to top the market. OnePlus and Huawei are good examples of such companies. But OnePlus and Huawei are becoming more expensive due to competition and thereby providing room for Realme, Xiaomi, and other companies.
The Realme X3 SuperZoom comes in two variants and it costs Rs 27,999 for the 8GB/128 GB Variant, and Rs 32,999 for the 12GB/256 GB variant. It will go on sale on both Flipkart and official Realme website @ realme.com.

Design & Display
The looks of smartphones are now becoming one of the most important factors a buyer considers, in fact even a budget phone needs a good look. Realme smartphones are, in my opinion, clearly not doing good when it comes to design. Nearly all of their smartphones exhibit the same design style at all price points, which are increasingly difficult to distinguish. For example, Realme X2 has an exact design with the Realme X3 series. The only difference is the notch. It will be great to have a unique design, at least for the flagship models.
Anyway, the quad-camera module sits in a vertical position with a significant protrusion from the back of the handset. It has the tendency to tumble the device whenever it’s kept on a flat surface.
The screen has a cut-out on the upper left corner which houses a pair of front cameras. The design is not bezel-free, especially at the bottom: Realme reports a screen-to-body ratio of 84.7 percent.
There’s USB-C port, a single loudspeaker at the bottom but there’s no 3.5 mm audio socket. The fingerprint scanner is located on the right-hand side of the phone in the power button.
The 6.6-inch Full HD+ screen is IPS LCD and protected by a Gorilla Glass 5. The screen has a 2400 x 1080 pixel (399ppi) resolution (which is enough), a 120Hz refresh rate (which automatically dial down to 60Hz)
Realme X3 SuperZoom quad-camera includes a 64 MP (f/1.8) main sensor, an 8 MP (f/3.4) 5x periscope telephoto lens, an 8 MP (f/2.3) ultra-wide sensor, and a 2 MP (f/2.4) macro lens. The special aspect of Realme X3 SuperZoom is the 5x zoom lens with a periscope. The lens is supported by an ultra-wide-angle lens and the main sensor, thereby granting the system the focal length from 16 mm to 124 mm which is equal to the seamless range from 0.5X to 60X hybrid magnification.
The 5x zoom in this price range is in fact one of the most important selling points. It is also worth noting the dual-lens selfie camera (32MP + 8MP) which has its own ultra-wide mode.
Night and low-light shots are where the camera on the phone truly reveals its prowess.
Performance & Battery
Realme X 3 SuperZoom comes with a Snapdragon 855+ processor – that’s a downgrade for a flagship device but F it! for this price range, it is only a really small step down and might not be noticeable to most consumers at all because it is one of the most efficient chipsets available in 2019, and it is not that far from the Snapdragon 865 in terms of processing capacity.
The chipset together with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage, ensures that even the heaviest games like PUBG and Asphalt 9 are lag-free. There is no memory card slot and there’s no way to upgrade the 256 GB memory.
As for the battery, it has a capacity of 4,200mAh and this is powerful enough to get through busy days.
There’s a 30W fast charge adapter. To top up your battery, this is pretty easy. Without a problem, this should get the X3 SuperZoom battery from 0 to 50 percent within half an hour.

Despite its price, the Realme X3 SuperZoom is an impressively well-specified smartphone. The design might not be at the forefront, but the cameras have much to be desired. Still, there’s a lot to like in here for $430: a decent chipset, sufficient RAM and storage, a decent 6.6-inch panel, and strong battery life.
Personally, we get the impression that Realme hasn’t quite reached its peak yet, and that the company has much more to come up with within the near future. Right now the Realme X3 SuperZoom, along with its sibling, provides something that impresses at this price point –~$430/₹32999~ N165,000.
