Today the Realme 6 and Realme 6 Pro went official and they bring significant upgrades over their predecessors despite coming just five months later – new chipsets, 90Hz displays and 30W fast-charging.
This is the first Realme smartphone with Mediateks gaming-oriented G90T chipset. The 12nm platform brings an octa-core CPU with two 2.05GHz Cortex A76 big cores and six 2GHz Cortex-A55 power efficient cores, Mali-G76 MC4 GPU and is coupled with either 4GB, 6GB, or 8GB RAM.
The Realme 6 packs a 6.5 LCD, just as big as on the Realme 5, but the resolution got upgraded to FullHD+ and it now comes with 90Hz refresh rate. It has Gorilla Glass 3 on top and a punch hole for 16MP F/2.0 selfie camera with relatively large 1/3.1″ sensor.
There are four snappers on the back – 64MP main one with Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor, 8MP f/2.3 ultrawide unit, 2MP dedicated macro shooter and a 2MP B&W auxiliary unit for enhancing the portrait shots.
