One launch poster confirmed that the Realme X3 SuperZoom will come with a 120Hz high refresh rate. This is most likely an LCD screen as we see the fingerprint sensor on the side of the frame rather than in-screen. The second poster reveals that Realme will be using last year’s flagship Snapdragon 855+ chipset. The company claims the Realme X3 SuperZoom scored the highest AnTuTu score for Snapdragon 855+ with a score of 517,743. The company has previously confirmed that the smartphone will feature a periscope lens to support 60x digital zoom. 


A teaser video posted by the company also reveals the phone’s design from the front and back. The Realme X3 SuperZoom will see a vertical quad camera setup on the back, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor and dual punch-hole cameras on the front. The phone will come in white and blue colour options.

Why Snapdragon 855+?


You may be wondering why Realme is going with a 2019 flagship chipset instead of the Snapdragon 865, and the answer seems to be an obvious one – affordability. Realme is no doubt looking to launch the Realme X3 SuperZoom as an affordable flagship phone. The Snapdragon 855+ is still a blazing fast chipset and we should see the Realme X3 SuperZoom deliver a performance similar to the Realme X2 Pro. To recall, the Realme X2 Pro with Snapdragon 855+ launched in India at Rs 29,999, and we expected the Realme X3 SuperZoom to fall below Rs 30,000 as well. 91mobiles exclusively reported a few days ago that the Realme X3 SuperZoom will launch in India in mid-June.
