Realme is all set to launch its next budget flagship, Realme 3 Pro on April 22.


The company has been repeatedly placing it against Redmi Note 7 Pro. From the announcement at Realme 3 launch to the recent tweets, Realme CEO has been claiming it to be a true Note 7 Pro challenger. Both the smartphones will come with almost similar styled displays. Redmi Note 7 Pro comes with a Full HD+ dot notch display. It comes protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The smartphone sports a glass sandwich design with the same protection as front. Redmi Note 7 Pro comes with a rear dual camera setup. The smartphone dons the much-popular Sony IMX 586 48MP sensor as its primary shooter. In comparison, Realme 3 Pro will come with the Sony IMX 519 sensor, the same imaging sensor from OnePlus 6T. Both the sensors offer some great photography experience, but the latest Sony IMX 586 sensor has a slight edge.

The Redmi Note 7 Pro sells for starting price of Rs 13,999 in the country. This price is for the 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage model. There’s also a 6GB RAM and 128GB storage model too which sells for Rs 16,999 in India. Similarly, I believe, to compete with the Redmi Note 7 Pro the Realme 3 Pro must be priced under Rs 15,000 and should offer great value for the money to consumers. Realme CEO Madhav Seth recently tweeted that the Realme 3 Pro will be much faster when compared to the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro. This suggests that the Realme 3 Pro may sport much powerful hardware when compared to the Redmi Note 7 Pro. Some rumours and leaks suggest that the Realme 3 Pro will be powered by Snapdragon 710 processor. If the rumours turn out to be true the Realme phone will indeed be a much powerful phone – at least on paper. The Redmi Note 7 Pro is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 675 chipset paired with up to 6GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage expandable via microSD card. In the India Today Tech review I mentioned, “The Redmi Note 7 Pro is capable of handling day-to-day tasks smoothly. Be it switching between apps or scrolling through Twitter feed, the Note 7 Pro runs lag-free.” Realme claims that the Realme 3 Pro will be mostly about “speed”. The company is promoting the Realme 3 Pro with the tagline “speed awakes”. The Redmi Note 7 Pro includes two cameras on the back: a main 48-megapixel primary camera with Sony IMX586 sensor and a 5-megapixel for portrait shots. On the front the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro includes a 13-megapixel sensor with lots of AI features packed with it. As of now, there is no information from the company on the cameras of the Realme 3 Pro. But, considering all the existing Realme phones come with pretty decent cameras, we expect the Realme 3 Pro cameras to be better and not just decent.

While using the Redmi Note 7 Pro I found that it clicked some beautiful and detailed pictures in good light. The camera also gets the colours appropriate almost all the time. I loved most of the pictures clicked with the phone in good lighting. They were totally Instagram worthy!
