The top-end 12GB RAM + 256GB storage option will set you back to Rs 32,999.

Realme X3 and X3 SuperZoom specifications

Realme X3 and Realme X3 SuperZoom both tout similar design and specifications such as Snapdragon 855+ SoC, 6.6-inch FHD+ punch-hole LCD display with 120Hz refresh rate, side-mounted fingerprint scanner, a 4,200mAh battery, and 30W Dart fast charging support. The only noticeable difference between the two phones is in regard to cameras and RAM options. The Realme X3 SuperZoom sports 64MP quad rear cameras comprising 64MP primary sensor, an 8MP wide-angle lens, an 8MP periscope lens with up to 60x hybrid zoom, and a 2MP macro lens. Up front, the phone gets a 32MP primary selfie camera and an 8MP wide-angle lens. The Realme X3 SuperZoom comes with up to 12GB RAM option.

The Realme X3, on the other hand, also features 64MP quad camera setup at the back but with 8MP telephoto lens that supports 20x zoom instead of periscope lens. The front camera of the phone has been downgraded to 16MP + 8MP sensors from 32MP + 8MP. In terms of configurations, the X3 maxes out at 8GB RAM and 128GB storage onboard.

Should you buy Realme X3 series over Realme X2 Pro?

Realme X3 and X3 SuperZoom don’t exactly succeed last year’s Realme X2 Pro (review), but act as more affordable options with some similarities between them. Both the Realme X3 phones are cheaper than the X2 Pro and offer the same Snapdragon 855+ chipset, but feature a higher 120Hz refresh rate display instead of a 90Hz screen. The Realme X3 is a solid flagship phone if you’re on a budget, while the X3 SuperZoom should be bought only if you’re interested in the 60x zoom lens.

Realme X2 Pro is selling in India at a starting price of Rs 29,999. The advantages it holds over Realme X3 series is that is comes with an AMOLED display and a faster 50W fast charging support. If these two features are important to you, then it would be worth spending extra to buy the Realme X2 Pro.
