After many rumors and teasers, Realme finally unveiled the Narzo 10 and Narzo 10A realms in India. The pair of smartphones becomes official after two delays caused by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. As we have already shown in some articles, the two devices are not new smartphones. They are renamed Realme 6i and Realme C3, although the latter have three cameras this time.
With the duo of new smartphones, Realme targets the youth and Gen-Z in India. This is another step for the company to be more than just a smartphone manufacturer, but a lifestyle company in India. Realme has been aggressively launching smartphones in the past few months and has a special predilection for India, the market that has made it one of the five leading smartphone brands. Without further ado, let's go into the technical data of these two handsets.
Realme Narzo 10
The Realme Narzo 10 continues Realme's partnership with MediaTek, and this time we have the outstanding Helio G80 SoC. This is a gaming chipset, so you can expect all the optimizations brought by MediaTek's HyperEngine. The computing power is supported by 4 GB RAM and 128 GB storage. The handset is based on a 6.5-inch display with HD + resolution. It is a water drop notch phone with a single 16 megapixel selfie snapper.
On the back we have a quad camera setup with a 48-megapixel main shooter, an 8-megapixel ultrawide. a 2MP depth and a 2MP macro module. The Realme Narzo also has a fingerprint scanner mounted on the back and is powered by a powerful 5,000 mAh battery. The battery can be quickly charged up to 18 W via the USB-C connection.
Additional functions include the 3.5 mm headphone jack, the dedicated microSD card slot, the dual SIM functionality and the Android 10 based Realme user interface.
The Narzo 10A is a cheaper version, and yes, Realme apparently borrows Xiaomi's Redmi method for naming entry-level devices. You just have to put an "A" after the number. Although it is an entry-level handset, the chipset does not disappoint, it is a Helio G70 SoC. This particular chip has the same family tree as its counterparts in the G series. Of course, it is less powerful, but you can still enjoy games with moderate settings. It is coupled with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of expandable memory.
The handset has a 6.5-inch HD + display with Gorilla Glass 3 and a water drop notch, which serves as a house for a simple 5-megapixel shooter. As already mentioned, it is basically another variant of the Realme C3 with three cameras on the back. The camera array includes 12 MP wide + 2 MP depth + 2 MP macro shooter. The handset is also powered by a powerful 5,000 mAh battery. However, it is limited to the 10 W charge rate of its micro USB connector.
