With pricing out of the way, let’s take a look at the other aspects of Realme 10 Pro and Realme 10 Pro Plus, such as the design, display, performance, and cameras.
Both the Realme 10 Pro and Realme 10 Pro Plus feature a new design language called ‘Hyperspace Design’ that elevates the aesthetics and back panel finish from the previous generations. Besides that, the Realme 10 Pro sports a flat-edge frame that measures just 8.1mm in thickness with rounded volume and power buttons on the right side. Coming to the back of the device, there are two large circular cameras with a LED flashlight beside them. A 3.5mm headphone jack is also present at the bottom which is something the Realme 10 Pro Plus lacks. The phone comes in three different colour variants namely, Dark Matter, Nebula Blue, and Hyperspace.
Now coming to the design of the Realme 10 Pro Plus, unlike the Realme 10 Pro the device flaunts a premium 61-degree curved display that is encompassed in a 7.78mm slim frame. As for the button placements, we can find both the volume buttons and power buttons on the right side of the frame with speakers and a USB Type-C port at the bottom.

Realme has taken a giant leap from the previous generations when it comes to the display on both Realme 10 Pro and Realme 10 Pro Plus. Pushing the limits of an LCD display, the Realme 10 Pro offers a 6.72-inch FHD+ panel with a class-leading 93.7 percent screen-to-body ratio. The company has managed to achieve this by shrinking the side bezels to just 1mm and the top bezel to 1.5mm using the RAZR technology. With 120Hz refresh rate support, the display can switch between various refresh rates depending on the content that is being viewed. Lastly, the Realme 10 Pro comes with TUV Rheinland low blue light certification to reduce stress on the eyes when using the device for long durations.
Processor, RAM, and storage
Running under the hood of the Realme 10 Pro is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 5G chipset which is the same chipset carried over from the Realme 9 Pro. The Realme 10 Pro Plus on the other hand gets a brand new chipset at its helm which is the newly announced MediaTek Dimensity 1080 5G SoC.
The Realme 10 Pro comes in variants of 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM and 8GB RAM + 128GB ROM with both variants having UFS 2.2 storage speeds and LPDDR4X RAM.

All the storage variants of the Realme 10 Pro Plus come with LPDDR4X RAM and UFS 2.2 internal storage speeds, just like the Pro model.
The optics on the Realme 10 Pro are taken care of by the 108MP Samsung HM6 primary sensor along with a 2MP portrait lens on the rear while a 16MP camera is present on the front for selfies and video calls.

The Realme 10 Pro gets its power from a 5,000mAh battery cell that can be charged using 33W SUPERVOOC charging technology. Alternatively, the Realme 10 Pro Plus also packs a 5,000mAh battery unit but comes with a much faster charging solution thanks to 67W SUPERVOOC charging that can take the phone from 0 to 50 percent in 17 minutes.
