    Realme XT review

     59     

    The Realme XT is coming hot on the heels of the Realme 5 series and it's going down in history as the first smartphone to be released with a 64MP camera. Being a sequel to the Realme X, the XT is packing an AMOLED screen on top of attractive glass design, but it also inherits the quad-camera setup from the Realme 5.

    We have given up on trying to figure out how Realme is spinning so many plates, but it's a fact that the maker is announcing phones at an unprecedented rate, while still managing to put enough novelties on each new one to make it a worthy upgrade. The Realme XT, while named as a successor to the X, is more of a mixture between it and the Realme 5 Pro. The XT keeps the Super AMOLED screen and cool glass design but goes with a waterdrop notch for the selfie camera rather than a pop-up module.Before we go on let's take a closer look at the Realme XT's specs sheet.Realme XT specsUnboxing the Realme XTThe XT retail box also contains a soft transparent case if you want to keep the back scratch-free for as long as possible.

The XT keeps the Super AMOLED screen and cool glass design but goes with a waterdrop notch for the selfie camera rather than a pop-up module.Then, the XT has the same Snapdragon 712 chip as the Realme 5 Pro, and a very similar four-camera setup - a high-res primary, an 8MP ultrawide, a 2MP macro, and a 2MP portrait snappers. But here comes the headliner - the main camera employs the new 64MP Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 Quad-Bayer sensor and that's among the largest to ever make it to a smartphone, much less in this price range.The selfie camera has gotten an updgrade too. It's the same 16MP Sony IMX471 sensor as on the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro. We hope it will make up for cutting a piece of that large OLED screen.Realme XT specs Body: Gorilla Glass 5 front and back, plastic frame Screen: 6.4-inch AMOLED, 19.5:9, 1080p+, 402ppi Rear camera: Primary 64MP Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 Quad Bayer 1/1.72" sensor, 0.8�m, f/1.8 lens; 119� ultra wide-angle 8MP camera; 2MP macro camera; 2MP depth sensor; LED flash; 2160p@30fps video recording, EIS Front camera: 16MP 1/3" sensor, 1.0�m, f/2.0 lens; 1080p video, EIS Chipset: Snapdragon 712: octa-core CPU (2x2.2 GHz Kryo 360 Gold & 6x1.7 GHz Kryo 360 Silver), Adreno 616 GPU Memory: 4/6/8GB RAM, 64/128GB UFS 2.1 storage; dedicated microSD slot for up to 256GB expansion OS: Android 9.0; Color OS 6.0 Realme Edition on top Battery: 4,000mAh, 20W VOOC 3.0 charging Connectivity: Dual SIM (4G), Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, USB-C Colors: Pearl White, Pearl Blue Misc: Under-display optical fingerprint readerThe Realme XT has the largely the same retail package as the Realme 5 Pro - meaning you are in for a treat. The XT model comes packed with a 20W VOOC charger and the enhanced USB-C cable needed for the VOOC charging to work properly.Oh, the Realme XT also comes with a factory-applied (vert thin) screen protector even though it is rocking a Gorilla Glass 5 on top of its OLED. We wish more manufacturers do this instead of putting some marketing stickers.
