After numerous teasers, realme has finally lifted the curtain off its latest mid-range device, the realme XT. Judging by its specs, it’s a bumped up version of the X.

Realme XT has a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display protected by Gorilla Glass 5, and is powered by a Snapdragon 712 AIE, a step above the Snapdragon 710 on the X. It has up to 8GB of RAM, and up to 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage, expandable via its microSD card slot.

Whereas the realme X uses a dual rear camera system, the XT steps it up with four shooters, including a 64MP Samsung GW1 sensor, along with an 8MP ultrawide shooter, and a couple of 2MP sensors for depth sensing and macro photography. Up front, you get a 16MP snapper housed in a notch.

Realme XT runs on ColorOS 6 on top of Android 9 Pie with a promised upgrade to Android 10 in Q1 of 2020. It boasts features such as Hyperboost 2.0 and Dark Mode. You get a 4,000mAh with 20W fast-charging via a VOOC adapter.

Realme XT will retail in India for INR 15,999 (PhP11,702.45, 4GB + 64GB), INR 16,999 (PhP12,433.89, 6GB + 64GB) and INR 18,999 (PhP13,890.87, 8GB + 128GB).
