Realme XT launched in India, price starts at Rs 15,999



Today, Realme XT launched in India as the first smartphone to launch with a 64 Megapixel camera in the Indian market. As we know, the Redmi Note 8 Pro (launched in China) is actually the first device to launch with a 64MP camera, but still, in India, XT is the first. The price starts at Rs 15,999, which is not a surprise since Realme is known for aggressive pricing.


One thing that makes this phone different from other Realme phones is the build. It has a 3D Gorilla Glass 5 on the front as well as the rear, making it the first phone from Realme to feature a glass back. It has a gorgeous Hyperbola finish that we saw in the Realme 5 series.

There is a USB Type-C port on the bottom & the phone doesn’t miss out on the headphone jack as well. The power button on the right has a gold paint job that’s a nice touch to the overall design. On the rear, there is a Quad Camera setup & there is no fingerprint scanner on the back since the phone has an in-display fingerprint scanner.

On the front, Realme XT features a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED Full-HD+ display (2340 x 1080) with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on top. Unlike the Realme X, it is a dewdrop display, so there is no pop-up selfie camera since it is placed in that notch on top.

The SOC powering the device is Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 & yes, it is the same SOC which powers Realme 5 Pro. It is a 2.3GHz 10nm octa-core SOC that’s 10% better in terms of the performance when compared to Snapdragon 710. There is 4/6/8GB LPDDR4X RAM & 64/128GB UFS 2.1storage.

The main USP of Realme XT is the 64 Megapixel camera on the rear that features the Samsung GW1 sensor & it is a 1/72-inch sensor. The 64MP camera has an f/1.8 aperture & 0.8-micron pixel size. The secondary camera is an 8MP ultra-wide-angle shooter with 119-degree FOV. There is a third 2MP depth sensor & a fourth 2MP macro lens. So, except for the primary camera, the camera setup is the same as Realme 5 Pro.

On the front, there is a 16MP camera with Sony IMX 471 sensor. f/2.0 aperture & 2-micron pixel size.

The rear camera can shoot 4K videos at 30fps & there is EIS for both the rear & front cameras. There is also software-based 960fps slow-motion videos.

The battery underneath is a 4,000mah unit that supports VOOC 3.0 flash charging. Just like Realme 5 Pro, you get 20W Fast Charger in the box.  Color OS 6 runs out of the box with Android 9 Pie on top.


Realme XT comes in two colours – Pearl Blue & Pearl White. The pricing is as follows –

  • 4GB + 64GB – Rs 15,999
  • 6GB + 64GB – Rs 16,999
  • 8GB + 128GB – Rs 18,999

The first sale is happening on 16th September & you will be able to buy it via Flipkart and Realme India’s website.
