Realme 3 Pro is all set to launch in India on April 22. Realme has confirmed the launch date through a tweet posted on Thursday. Meanwhile, Realme CEO Madhav Sheth in a tweet on Wednesday claimed that the Realme 3 Pro would be the first in its segment to support Fortnite. The new Realme flagship is designed to compete against Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 7 Pro. The Realme 3 Pro was announced as the company’s next model alongside the Realme 3 launch last month.
Realme hasn’t revealed any information around the chipset of the Realme 3 Pro. However, as per its formal announcement last month, the phone will come with a 48-megapixel primary sensor.
Through its latest tweet, Realme has publicly announced that the Realme 3 Pro would launch in India on April 22. The company will host the launch at the Delhi University at 12:30pm IST.
Sheth earlier this week also shared three camera samples of the Realme 3 Pro. While one of the images shared on Twitter teased the selfie camera of the upcoming Realme phone, the other two gave a glimpse at the performance of its rear-mounted camera setup. Further, the camera samples suggested that phone could have dedicated HDR support on the main camera and a selfie camera with a resolution greater than 13 megapixels, which was available on the Redmi Note 7 Pro.
There are no other details of the Realme 3 Pro available right now. So it is not clear what sort of cameras it will have — although it is safe to assume that it will sport dual-camera setup on the rear panel. It is also not clear if the phone will use a metal and glass design, similar to what the Note 7 Pro has, or if it will use a plastic body with a metallic finish, something that recently-launch Samsung M series phones have in this segment.
The price of the Realme 3 Pro is likely to be under Rs 15,000, at least for the variant that will come with at least 3GB RAM and likely 64GB storage. The Redmi Note 7 Pro has a starting price of Rs 13,999 and we expect Realme 3 Pro to be around the same. The higher variant with more RAM and storage may cost around Rs 15,999.
In a separate tweet posted on Wednesday, Realme CEO Sheth highlighted the gaming-focused hardware of the Realme 3 Pro by calling it as the first in its segment to support Fortnite directly. The executive also took a dig at the Redmi Note 7 Pro by saying, “Tried to play this game on some latest ‘Pro’ devices but none of them could manage. When it comes to speed, chipset matters.”
