Realme XT with Quad Camera and 64MP Primary Shooter Now Officially Launched


The first smartphone with 64MP primary rear camera from Realme, called the Realme XT, has just been officially launched in India. Its main rear camera is Samsung GW1 sensor, a first camera module with 64MP developed for smartphones such as these. Alongside this monster smartphone camera, there are 8MP with ultrawide, 2MP with portrait, and 2MP with macro lenses. If you were counting, yes there are a total of four cameras just on the back panel. As a quick comparison, this phone's predecessor the Realme X, only had two shooters.

The Realme XT will run on the current Android 9 Pie with ColorOS 6 version on top when shipped. But the company itself has already confirmed that the Android 10 will arrive to this device early next year, 2020. RAM and storage-wide, there will be three variants - 4GB+64GB, 6GB+64GB, and 8GB+128GB. All storage options are equipped with UFS 2.1 technology, a first for a Realme device.

While the Realme XT is the official sequel to the Realme X and has gone full quad rear cameras with the first 64MP camera sensor, Realme decided to ditch the pop-up selfie camera mechanism on this one. Instead, we get a dewdrop style notch housing the 16MP front camera. Now as for the display, it's still a Super AMOLED panel, similar to its precedessor, pegged at 6.4 inches with full HD+ resolution and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. Being an AMOLED screen, in-display fingerprint sensor is still present. Its back cover is now made of real glass, which I think is also a first for a realme device.
