As I wrote in a previous post about Realme, they are really doing A LOT in a year! The Realme C1 is probably one of the biggest bang-for-your-buck smartphones in recent memory. It’s a good thing that they don’t rest on their laurels! Realme really wants you to Power Your Style with their newest phone: the Realme 3!
What’s New with the Realme 3?
Realme’s newest phone combines a lot of elements from their previous offerings, features from other brands, and the latest from Google! You heard that right: this phone has Android 9 Pie out of the box with ColorOS 6! Don’t worry about ColorOS since it now looks closer to what Google had in mind.
I also love that there are 2 new gradient colors that are inspired by the night sky: Dynamic Black and Radiant Blue! I can’t really choose between the both of them since they’re both amazing!
It doesn’t skimp on the camera department either. The Realme 3 has a dual rear camera system that consists of a 13MP main sensor and a 2MP depth sensor for portrait photos. It also has a 13MP front camera for those stylistic and powerful selfies! Both have AI scene recognition for auto adjustment of settings depending on the scenario.
This phone has 2 unique camera features under its belt: Nightscape and Chroma Boost! Nightscape allows you to take blur-free, handheld shots in low-light. Brighter with less noise and more details in the shadows and highlights. Chroma Boost Chroma Boost makes colors more vivid and improves dynamic range for more light-balanced pictures.
That basically means that you can take AMAZING night shots from a phone at its price point. I really can’t wait to try this after the Realme C1’s camera surprised the hell out of me!
Realme 3 Specs!
For the specs geeks out there, here’s what the Realme 3 has going for it:
- 6.2-inch LCD display with a teardrop-shaped notch
- MediaTek Helio P70 processor (India) / Helio P60 processor (Global)
- 3/4GB RAM, 32/64 GB internal storage
- Rear fingerprint sensor
- microSD card support up to 256GB
- 13MP front camera with 1.12μm Pixels
- Dual rear cameras: 13MP sensor with f/1.8″ aperture and 2MP depth sensor

How Much? When Will It Arrive in PH?
The Realme 3 starts at ₹8,999 in India for the 3GB/32GB model. It’ll be out in Flipkart shortly since the India launch just happened. As for when it’ll be in the Philippines, here’s Realme’s answer:
YES! We won’t have to wait much longer! Realme Philippines announced shortly after the India launch that they will launch the Realme 3 in PH on March 19, 2019! I can’t wait to know how much it costs! We’ll probably get the version with the Helio P60 processor though but I think it’s plenty powerful. After feeling its performance in the OPPO F9, I have no doubt that the Realme 3 would be just as fast (even faster I think).
