The pop-up camera phone comes with a 6.53-inch Full-HD+ AMOLED display embedded with the cutting-edge on-screen fingerprint reader. Under the hood, it has a Snapdragon 710 SoC which is same as the Chinese variant, despite Realme India CEO saying that the Indian version will not be necessarily similar. There’s a dual 48MP (f/1.7) +5MP camera on the rear and a 16MP sensor in the pop-up module. And finally, there’s a 3,765mAh battery complemented by VOOC 3.0.
