“Realme Q is claimed to survive 100-degrees of boiling water tests and is also water and dust resistant”
Realme Q series is scheduled to go official on September 5th in China. The first handset from the series is speculated to be a rebranded Realme 5 Pro that was launched in India a couple of weeks ago. This means the handset will be powered by the Snapdragon 712 SoC and pack quad rear cameras with 48MP primary sensor. Now, ahead of the event, Realme CMO, Xu Qi Chase, revealed few more details about the Realme Q. The handset is now confirmed to come with 20W VOOC fast charging support and pack 4,035mAh battery with triple security protection. The Realme Q will also have support for UFS 2.1 storage and USB Type-C port for charging and data sync.
While fresh new details further reiterate the speculation that the Realme 5 Pro is indeed the Realme Q for the Chinese markets, a fresh new official teaser poster suggest the phone will have a more rugged exterior. The Realme Q is claimed to survive 100-degrees of boiling water tests and is also water- and dust-resistant. The poster further mentions the handset is also rated to survive drops from 1.8 meters. These new additions should make Realme Q superior to the Realme 5 Pro in terms of build quality and durability.
Other specifications include a 6.3-inch Full HD+ display with 2,340×1,080 pixels resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass 3+ protection and come in three variants: 4GB + 64GB, 6GB + 64GB and 8GB + 128GB internal storage that is further expandable up to 256GB. It is likely to run on Android 9.0 Pie with ColorOS 6.0 custom skin on top. In terms of optics, the Realme Q could come with 48MP primary Sony IMX586 sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, a 2MP depth sensor and lastly, a 2MP macro. It could come with a 16MP snapper on the front for selfies and video chats. The handset also packs a traditional rear-mounted fingerprint sensor for security.
