“The Realme 3 Pro is expected to feature a 48-megapixel primary rear camera, and rival Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 7 in the mid-range smartphone segment.”
The Realme 3 Pro is nearing launch, and as is the norm, the hype chain is active ahead of the launch of the latest entrant in the mid-range smartphone segment. Now, Realme India CEO Madhav Sheth has taken to Twitter to post camera samples from the upcoming Realme 3 Pro smartphone. The photos were posted by Sheth along with a tweet that confirmed that the smartphone will be launched at a college campus, affirming the OPPO subsidiary’s youth-oriented marketing strategy.
While the photographs posted have no EXIF data attached to it, there are some details that can be made out. Of the three photographs posted, one is presumably shot with the front camera and bears file resolution of over 12MP. This falls in line with rumours that have so far suggested that the Realme 3 Pro will feature a 25MP front camera. The group selfie is taken under bright sunlight, where most smartphones do perform at their best. However, this shot appears to suggest good contrast and white balance adjustment, at least upon initial inspection.
Hope you guys had a wonderful weekend.— Madhav Sheth (@MadhavSheth1) April 8, 2019

As for the other two photographs, these were presumably shot with the rear camera and exhibit high dynamic range (HDR) mode of photography. This may be a result of an auto-HDR mode on board the Realme 3 Pro — an increasingly preferred mode of shooting in recent smartphones, owing to the colour and contrast advantages. The Realme 3 Pro is speculated to feature a 48MP rear snapper, but the sensor used is believed to be different from the one used in the Redmi Note 7 Pro (review).
When launched, the Realme 3 Pro is slated to take on the Redmi Note 7, with the more powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor inside. Initial reports suggested that the Realme 3 Pro will only get a 4GB RAM and 32GB native storage variant, but that seems unlikely. Instead, the smartphone will possibly also come with a 6GB/ 64GB variant. The main draw, like the Redmi Note 7, is believed to be the 48MP primary rear camera.
As the Realme CEO has himself tweeted about the phone, the launch is not too far away. We already know the handset will launch in April so as the brand attempts to restrict Xiaomi’s growing dominance in India’s lucrative smartphone market.
