Standard design in the middle class
A trend that we have already seen in the Lenovo Z6 Lite and UMIDIGI F1 is also noticeable in the Realme 3 Pro. Instead of being experimental, it’s taking on the status quo in terms of design. This is also how the 3 Pro looks like its two competitors due to its waterdrop notch and 6.3 inch screen diagonal. No wonder, as it was the in-house OPPO RX17 that started this trend. The screen resolution is 2340 x 1080 pixels, resulting in a pixel density of 409 ppi. The touch screen in 19.5:9 aspect ratio was even equipped with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 for protection.
The back also follows all current design trends and consists of the camera module in the upper left corner, the fingerprint sensor in the central upper middle field and the Realme lettering in the lower left corner. The mid-range smartphone is available in Carbon Grey, Lightning Purple or Nitro Blue. The slight S-curve, which is reflected when the sun is shining properly, is also conspicuous. This is probably inspired by the famous Le Mans racetrack and is supposed to symbolize speed.
The dimensions of 156.8 x 74.2 x 8.3 mm and the weight of 172 g aren’t very surprising with the display size. More surprising is the Micro-USB slot, which is located at the bottom. But there is still a 3.5 mm jack connector on the left side.
Finally as Global Version
Like the Lenovo Z6 Lite, the Oppo Realme 3 Pro is also equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor. The Octa-Core CPU with two 2.2 GHz cores and six 1.7 GHz cores should provide more than enough power, provided the operating system knows how to handle it. The processor is supported by 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal memory, which can be expanded by up to 256 GB memory via a microSD card. In addition to the CPU, the large 4.045 mAh battery also sounds very promising, which can be quickly charged with 20W. The VOOC 3.0 fast charging process brings the battery from 0 to 50% in 30 minutes!
The Oppo Reno 10X Zoom has proven as flagship of the manufacturer how well the Chinese can handle camera software. We are therefore curious whether the built-in Sony IMX519 sensor with 16 megapixel resolution and ƒ/1.7 aperture can also provide good photos. With the OnePlus 6, this looked pretty good in any case. Thanks to the 5 megapixel depth sensor, portrait shots are also possible. In fact, the phone also supports 4K video recording. A bit more important seems to be Realme but here the 25 megapixel front camera, which supports AI modes and also serves as a Face Unlock.
As already mentioned, the Realme 3 Pro is a Global version, which is also equipped with LTE Band 20 and 28. Also the operating system is multilingual and supports many different languages. The operating system is Color OS 6.0, which is based on Android 9 and should also come directly with all Google services. The Color OS has little to do with Stock Android, but we liked it in the Oppo Reno because it has some smart features. Unfortunately you won’t be able to use Google Pay because there is no NFC integrated.
We’ve had an eye on Realme for some time now, which could be the next Xiaomi, at least for smartphones. The hardware equipment sounds more than good, the price is reasonable and the operating system is stylish, albeit strongly adapted. With the Global version you don’t have to make any compromises, only the Micro-USB port is a bit outdated. Should we give the Realme 3 Pro a chance?To the gadget
