Performance and Memory

Powering the device is last year’s Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset based on a 5nm manufacturing process. There is an octa-core CPU core with eight Kryo 680 cores clocked at the maximum speed of 2.84GHz. Likewise, there is Adreno 660 handling the graphics depart.

As per memory, there are three different configurations – 8/128GB, 8/256GB, and 12/256GB of UFS 3.1. Among these two, only the first one and last one are available in the global market while the 8/256GB version is still exclusive to the Chinese market. Unfortunately, there is no microSD card slot to further expand the internal memory. On the software front, the phone boots on Android 12 on top of Realme UI 3.0.

Camera and Audio

Moving on to optics, there is a triple camera setup on the bump we have on the back panel. There is a Sony IMX766 50MP primary lens of f/1.8 aperture, 1.0-microns pixel capacity, and support of Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). This is the same primary lens used in the Pro version. Another is an 8MP camera with a 119-degree field of view. Further, the setup is completed with a 2MP macro sensor.

While the rear camera can record up to 4K videos with gyro-EIS at the rate of 30/60 fps, the front-facing camera is limited to 1080p at 30 frames per second. The back-camera bump also houses a Dual-LED dual-tone flash. For audio, there is a loudspeaker system with stereo speakers that supports 24-bit/192kHz audio. However, there is no 3.5mm headphone jack for music and calls.
