Realme announced the Q3-series in China recently. The series consisted of three budget smartphones including Realme Q3 Pro, Q3, and Q3i. The Q-series is limited to China for now. Thanks to its high price to performance ratio, Realme was able to sell 50,000 units of the Q3-series smartphones in less than half a day. More than 50,000 units in such a short period of time is a great achievement considering Realme is still a young brand.
Realme officially posted on its Weibo account that the first sales day was a success. There are different models in the Q3-series. The price difference between them is not much. However, the hardware on each one is different. The Realme Q3i is the cheapest phone in the series with a price tag of 999 Yuan (~$154). Followed by the Realme Q3 at 1299 Yuan (~$200) and the Q3 Pro at 1599 Yuan (~$257). Now, what is the secret behind the success of these models? Well, first, they all offer 5G connectivity. The design language is great and the display on the Pro version is top-notch as well. Let’s discuss each of the phones below.
