Realme 10 Pro+ 5G powered by MediaTek Dimensity 1080 overview: a mid-ranger with flagship attributes

Realme is often the first smartphone brand to utilise a new chipset from MediaTek’s stables. And the just-launched Realme 10 Pro+ carries that legacy forward. It’s the first handset in the country to ship with MediaTek Dimensity 1080. But that’s not its only claim to fame. It features a high-resolution 108-megapixel primary shooter at the back, a 6.7-inch display up front, and more. Let’s take a closer look at what makes the Realme 10 Pro+ 5G special.

For those who have the need for speed

As mentioned in the introduction, the Realme 10 Pro+ 5G draws power from the MediaTek Dimensity 1080 SoC. The processor is built using the power-efficient 6nm process. The octa-core chipset comprises two high-power ARM Cortex-A78 cores tuned at 2.6GHz, and six Cortex-A55 cores running at 2.0GHz to take care of mundane tasks. The combination ensures that the device is able to offer a perfect balance between power and battery efficiency. Accompanying the chip is up to 8GB RAM, meaning that the Realme 10 Pro+ 5G can easily handle anything thrown at it without breaking a sweat. The device can also get an additional 8GB of virtual RAM. In terms of ROM, the device comes with 128GB or 256GB built-in storage.

Gamers would enjoy the buttery-smooth graphics with the ARM Mali-G68 MC4 GPU. Then there’s MediaTek HyperEngine 3.0 gaming technologies. This offers features like call and data concurrency 3.0 letting you play your game without any interruption with 5G data on one SIM, while receiving a call on the secondary SIM. There’s also 5G HSR (high speed rail) mode which will search and connect to the tower with the lowest latency, which comes in handy while traveling.

108 reasons to go trigger-happy

In the imaging department, Realme’s latest ships with a 108MP sensor with f/1.75 aperture and PDAF technology. The primary shooter is given company by an 8MP f/2.2 ultra wide-angle snapper and a 2MP macro lens. The trio will ensure that you can capture all sorts of scenarios, including dimly-lit environments. For videos, the Realme 10 Pro+ 5G is able to capture 4K footage at 30fps, and 1080p clips at 30/60/120/480fps. Slow-mo videos can be shot at 720p at 960fps. A 16MP front-facing camera takes care of selfies and video calls.

A visually-appealing curved display

The Realme 10 Pro+ 5G’s fascia is adorned by a 6.7-inch display that curves to the sides, resulting in an immersive experience. Not to mention that this results in almost a bezel-less screen. The HDR10+-certified AMOLED panel comes with a resolution of 1,080 x 2,412 pixels and promises vibrant colours and crisp text. The brightness of 800 nits means that you can use the phone even in harsh sunlight. The screen also comes with a high refresh rate of 120Hz, which means navigating the menu or playing compatible games will be super responsive. For gaming, the handset also offers instant touch sampling of 1260Hz.

The Realme 10 Pro+ 5G is also the first OLED smartphone in the industry to receive TÜV Rheinland Flicker Free certification, thanks to 2160Hz PWN dimming technology which automatically gets activated in low light. Speaking of dim environments, the device supports hardware with low blue light that provides an added layer of eye protection.

A head-turning design

Not just the curved display, the Realme 10 Pro+ 5G will grab your attention in more ways than one. As mentioned above, the device features a near bezel-less design, and that’s because its chin measures just 2.33mm. Realme also highlights that the screen curvature of 61 degrees ensures lesser accidental finger touches and the lowest distortion. With a 0.65mm double-reinforced glass, the device is quite durable as well as it underwent 1.5m drop tests and 28,000 micro drop tests.

Turn to the back, and you are greeted with a Hyperspace design that has a reflective pattern. It’s available in three colour choices of Nebula Blue, Hyperspace Gold, or Dark Matter. The Realme 10 Pro+ 5G also promises a superb in-hand feel, thanks to its thickness of 7.78mm and weight of just 172.5g.

A massive battery with a long-lasting endurance

The Realme 10 Pro+ 5G comes packed with a beefy 5,000mAh Li-Po battery. The capacity would ensure that you don’t have to look for a charger in the middle of the day even with heavy usage. What’s more impressive is that you won’t have to spend a lot of time juicing up the handset. With the support for 67W SuperVOOC charging, it’s claimed to go from 0 to 50 percent within just 17 minutes.

With regards to software, the Realme 10 Pro+ 5G ships with Android 13-based realme UI 4.0. The smartphone also offers dual stereo speakers with Hi-Res audio to promise a rich sound output. The device features 5G with support for nine 5G bands, and Realme has partnered with Jio to experience its capabilities when combined with the next-gen network. The 6GB + 128GB variant is priced at Rs 24,999, whereas the higher-end 8GB + 256GB carries a sticker price of Rs 25,999.
