Just as we were saying that realme has never brought in their realme XT series into Malaysia, it seems like there is some change happening. The realme XT has been teased by the latest photos uploaded by realme Malaysia’s CEO, Hunter Wang.

The photo sneakily placed the realme XT on a table next to him in what looks like an innocuous photo of him. It almost looks unnoticeable, until you see it. It’s as if realme didn’t want us to find out about their upcoming phone. 🤔 Oh and that watermark…

Could it be unintentional and realme Malaysia aren’t actually bringing in the realme XT?

The realme XT launched in India last month, with specifications that are really close to the realme 5 Pro, except a better 6.4″ Super AMOLED display panel, and a 64MP primary camera backed by Samsung’s GW1 sensor, instead of the 48MP Sony sensor in the realme 5 Pro.

realme XT Specs

  • Snapdragon 712 AIE, octa-core up to 2.3 GHz, 10nm
  • Up to 8GB RAM
  • Up to 128GB UFS 2.1 storage, expandable via microSD
  • 6.4″ FHD+ Super AMOLED display
  • 64MP f/1.8 + 8MP f/2.25 ultra-wide angle + 2MP f/2.4 macro lens + 2MP f/2.4 depth sensor
  • 16MP f/2.0 selfie camera
  • 4000 mAh battery, 20W VOOC Flash Charge 3.0
  • ColorOS 6.0
  • 4 + 64GB: 15 999 INR (~RM944)
    6 + 64GB: 16 999 INR (~RM1002)
    8 + 128GB: 18 999 INR (~RM1120)

Now, the realme XT’s Indian pricing appears to be a bit too similar to what we are paying for the realme 5 Pro, and I don’t expect it to come in at this price bracket. Risking a guess, I would probably say it should cost around RM1300~RM1400. Of course, that’s just what I think. Don’t take it at face value.
