On Wednesday, Realme officially announced its Realme X smartphone in the Chinese market. Its been a while since Realme X became the talk among the tech enthusiasts. Realme X was speculated to be a flagship from Realme but sadly it is not. However, it will be more accurate if we say it is a near perfect version of Realme 3 Pro. There is no doubt that Realme 3 Pro is an excellent device for its price and a tough competitor of Redmi Note 7 Pro. However, If Realme launched the Realme X instead of Realme 3 Pro then it could be intense even more. Moving on, as the device is now official let’s have a quick look at the specification.
