After many rumors and teasers, Realme finally revealed the Realme Narzo 10 and Narzo 10A in India. The duo of smartphones is going official after two delays caused by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. As we already revealed through a couple of posts, the two devices aren’t exactly new smartphones. They’re renamed Realme 6i and Realme C3, though the latter has three cameras this time.
With the duo of new smartphones, Realme is aiming at the youth and Gen-Z in India. That’s another step given by the company to be more than just a smartphone maker, but a lifestyle company in India. Realme has been aggressively releasing smartphones in the past months and has a special love for India, the market that allowed it to become one of the top five smartphone brands. Without further ado, let’s dive in the specifications of these two handsets.
Realme Narzo 10
The Realme Narzo 10 continues Realme’s partnership with MediaTek and this time we have the excellent Helio G80 SoC. This is a gaming chipset, so you can expect all the optimizations brought by MediaTek’s HyperEngine. The processing power is aided by 4GB of RAM and 128GB of Storage. The handset is built around a 6.5-inch display with HD+ resolution. It’s a waterdrop notch phone featuring a single 16MP selfie snapper.
Moving around to the back, we have a Quad-Camera setup comprising a main 48MP shooter, an 8MP ultrawide, a 2MP depth, and a 2MP macro modules. The Realme Narzo also has a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and draws power from a beefy 5,000mAh battery. The battery comes with up to 18W fast-charging via the USB-C port.
Other features include the 3.5mm headphone jack, dedicated microSD card Slot, Dual-SIM functionality, and Android 10-based Realme UI.
The Narzo 10A is a more affordable version, and yeah, apparently Realme is borrowing Xiaomi’s Redmi way of naming entry-level devices. You just need to put an “A” after the number. While this is an entry-level handset, the chipset doesn’t disappoint, it’s an Helio G70 SoC. This particular chip carries the same pedigree of its fellows in the G-series, of course, it’s less powerful, but you can still enjoy games on moderate settings with it. It’s coupled with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage.
The handset flaunts a 6.5-inch HD+ display with Gorilla Glass 3 and a waterdrop notch serving as a house for a simple 5MP shooter. As we said before, this basically is a different variant of the Realme C3 with three cameras on the rear. The camera array comprises a 12MP wide + 2MP depth + 2MP macro shooters. The handset also draws power from a capable 5,000mAh battery, however, it is limited to the 10W charging rate of its micro USB port.
The phone is scratch-resistant and ships with Android 10-based RealmeUI.
