Following the success of the C1, Realme has finally launched its newest offering for the Philippine market. Welcome the Realme 3, a new disruptor to the budget segment by having features that are usually found on more expensive phones, combined with a solid mid-range chipset, and a very attractive price point.

The Realme 3 touts a metallic finish for its entire body, making it look more pricey than it actually is. It sports a 6.2″ display with HD+ resolution, and is protected with Gorilla Glass 3.

Under the hood is a more powerful Helio P60 octa-core processor, backed by 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, expandable via a microSD card.

The device packs dual rear cameras – a 13MP main sensor, and a 2MP depth sensor. The company has now added a new feature called Chroma Boost, which enhances dynamic range and colors, and Nightscape mode which lets you take great looking night shots without without the need for a tripod.

It comes with ColorOS 6, which gives a refreshing a new look, while retaining the goodies such as Game Space and Split Screen. There’s also AI Face Unlock, which works quick, even in less than ideal lighting. It has a 4,230mAh battery.
