realme X3 vs realme X3 SuperZoom – Not just about Zoom!

realme X3 vs realme X3 SuperZoom

Earlier this year, realme launched realme X50 Pro, a device that ticks all the boxes that a 2020 flagship should. However, given the relatively higher prices of Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 due to the 5G modem, many prospective buyers might find realme X50 Pro to be out of their budget. To cater to this demographic, realme has launched realme X3 and realme X3 SuperZoom. While realme X3 and it’s elder sibling, the realme X3 Superzoom share the same SoC, they do differ in certain aspects, giving rise to the difference in pricing. With that being said, let’s begin realme X3 vs realme X3 SuperZoom specification comparison.

These two devices come with 2020 features, but with the 2019 flagship SoC to address users in sub INR 25,000 segment. realme is able to maintain this price due to the inclusion of Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+, which whilst not having the 5G bells & whistles, still packs a good punch. As 5G still has a long journey before it’s launch in markets like India, realme X3 and realme X3 SuperZoom are two strong contenders for buyers looking for a budget flagship.
