On 16th July 2020, the government of India banned 59 Chinese Apps in India amid privacy concerns. Out of the 59 applications that were banned, some applications had become a household name and used to come pre-loaded on a number of devices in one form or another. realme devices are no exception to this as they are shipped with a Security app that houses “Clean Master-Cheetah Mobile“, for few functions to work. The Security app is a system application and as a result, it can’t be easily removed unless you are ready to get messy with ADB settings and so on, which isn’t everyone’s cup of tea.

realme X3 Series to ditch AMOLED display in favor of a 120Hz refresh rate display, and will pack Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+!

The smartphone industry, especially on the Android side, is becoming more and more specification centric. From an insane amount of RAM, that you’ll probably never need, to high megapixels count, we’ve all come across the marketing mumbo-jumbo and gimmicks. However, a recent trend that has picked up, is the high refresh rate screens. Until now, the refresh rate of smartphone screens was capped at 60Hz, and then began a wave of high refresh rate screens on smartphones, predominantly 90Hz and 120Hz. The problem arrives when certain OEMs sacrifice the screen quality for higher refresh rates. This has happened previously with POCO X2 when they made a decision to go with a 120Hz LCD panel instead of an AMOLED panel of lower refresh rate. After POCO, realme is the next brand which is jumping on 120Hz refresh rate train. All the realme X series devices launched till date in India had AMOLED display, but seems like it’s going to change with upcoming realme X3. Today, flipkart teaser page has confirmed that realme X3 will launch with 120Hz refresh rate in India, which we’re assuming is not a AMOLED display as higher refresh rate AMOLED displays are pricey as of now.
