realme X announced in China priced from just RM909
The realme 3 Pro was an awesome mid-range device which offered a Snapdragon 710 at the very affordable price of just RM899. Taking it up a notch is the realme X, which offers pretty similar specifications, except that it now does not have a notch.
In place of the realme 3 Pro’s 6.3″ screen waterdrop notch, the realme X has a 6.53″ bezel-less display with a 91.2% screen-to-body ratio. The 16MP f/2.0 selfie camera is now placed on a popup mechanism, similar to what the OPPO F11 Pro offers. For those who are disgusted by the use of microUSB on the realme 3 Pro, the realme X now sports a USB-C port instead. The rear camera setup is exactly the same as the realme 3 Pro, with a 48MP + 5MP dual camera setup.
For those who missed the realme 2 Pro’s UFS 2.1 storage, the realme X brings it back. It can be gotten in configurations with up to 8GB RAM and 128GB storage, as well as a RMB 1899 (~RM1152) Master Edition which offers the same amount of RAM and storage but features a special design by Naoto Fukasawa inspired by onions and garlic.

The regular realme X will be available in blue and white, while the realme X Master Edition will be offered in a brownish and whitish tone, inspired by the aforementioned condiments. China availability commences this 20th May, while other markets will see it arrive shortly. But do we really need a realme X when we already have the realme 3 Pro with much of the same specifications?
Pokdepinion: The white realme X looks fantastic, but the realme 3 Pro offers the same package… But cheaper.
