“The Realme XT will offer a 64MP primary sensor in a quad-camera setup, in-display fingerprint sensor, and mid-range Snapdragon processor”
The Realme XT is among the most hotly-anticipated smartphones in the Indian market as it is in a race to become the first smartphone in the world with a 64MP primary rear camera. Of course, the Redmi Note 8 Pro will also be launching in just a couple of days with a 64MP sensor, so the contest is pretty tight. That aside, several details around the Realme XT have been teased officially in the past couple of weeks. So today, we take a look at the information Realme has shared about its upcoming smartphone to give you a look at everything you can expect from the Realme XT.
Realme XT specifications, design, and features
64MP primary sensor
The 64MP primary sensor is, of course, the highlight of the Realme XT; the sensor will be encircled in an orange-coloured ring. The brand will be using the Samsung Bright GW1 sensor on the smartphone — this sensor combines four 16MP photos to stitch a single 64MP image using pixel-binning tech. With 0.8-micron pixel size, the GW1 is yet for a Samsung sensor. It also uses the ISOCELL Plus and Tetracell technologies for brighter low-light images. Other features of the sensor include Dual Conversion Gain (DCG) for colour accuracy, PDAF and Super Phase Detection for quick autofocus, and capability to record full HD videos at 480fps.
Quad rear cameras
Realme XT’s 64MP sensor will be backed by three other sensors, placed vertically. These sensors will be: a wide-angle lens, a depth sensor, and a macro lens. Next to the camera setup, towards the right, is a dual-tone LED flash. However, for more details about the individual sensors, including the resolution, we will have to wait for the launch.
In-display fingerprint sensor and OLED screen
Considering the official render shared by the brand does not show a fingerprint sensor on the back, we can assume that the Realme XT will have an in-display fingerprint reader. It is likely the brand will be using the optical biometric sensor since ultrasonic sensors are not seen in the affordable segment, which is the hunting ground for Realme. Of course, an in-display fingerprint module also means that the smartphone will feature an OLED screen.
Realme has announced it will be using a Qualcomm processor in the Realme XT, though it hasn’t yet revealed which chipset it will be employing. However, we can expect the handset to be powered by one of the mid-range Snapdragon SoCs considering the company’s target audience is in the mid-range category, which doesn’t see the flagship-class Snapdragon 8xx series chipsets (except on the POCO F1).
The official render also shows the Realme XT smartphone will come in silver-white hue, which the brand’s China CMO Xu Qi Chase called Silver Wing White. We can see the colour will have a gradient look. However, there are likely to be more colour options, including solid hues.
Realme XT India launch plans
Realme India CEO Madhav Sheth has teased the Realme XT India launch might be towards the end of September. We can speculate the smartphone will be unveiled in the country in September-end and hit the market in October thanks to the statement about a launch before Diwali.
