During a launch event in India, Realme announced a third phone into its third generation of phones. It’s called the Realme 3i, following the Realme 3 and Realme 3 Pro. But looking at the spec sheet, you’d think that the Realme 3i is replacing the base Realme 3.
The majority of the items on Realme 3i’s spec sheet is identical to that of the base Realme 3. To start, both sport the MediaTek Helio P60 chipset, and come with the ColorOS 6.0 based on Android 9 Pie. They also have batteries of the same capacity, rated at 4230mAh. The same applies to the cameras. Like the Realme 3, the Realme 3i comes with a 13MP + 2MP main camera combo, alongside a 13MP front-facing camera.
The fingerprint sensor is also at the back, in pretty much the same position as it was on the Realme 3. Both the Realme 3i and the Realme 3 come with HD+ displays, but the former has the slightly larger one, measuring in at 6.22-inches compared to the Realme 3’s 6.2-inch display. This looks to be one of only two differences between the two devices. The other difference is the design on the back of the phone, where the diamond cut design is more reminiscent of the design on the Realme 2.
And finally, the Realme 3i also comes with two RAM and storage configuration. One comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, while the other comes with a 4GB + 64GB combo. They are priced at INR7999 (~RM479) and INR9999 (~RM599), respectively. There is, as of yet, no word on their availability on our shores.
