The listing on the OPPO's official website also confirmed the device to sport 6.5-inch AMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution and DC dimming feature. You can't expand the memory though.

While the key highlights for the Realme X and the Youth Edition include a pop-up camera on the Realme X and the Notch which you will find on the Realme X Youth Edition. This is paired with a 5MP secondary camera for ascertaining depth information.

The much-awaited Realme X has finally been unveiled at a launch event in Beijing and I know, most of us have been expecting it to be a flagship smartphone - but it really isn't one. If you're anxious about how long the pop up camera can last, the company claims that the camera can be popped up 200000 times and comes with sapphire lenses to ensure that it can't easily be scratched.

As far as its pricing in India is concerned, Realme X will likely be priced between Rs 15,000 and Rs 20,000. Both the White and Blue colours come with an S-shaped pattern at the back.

"Resembling more like Realme 3 Pro, this handset features a 6.3" FHD+ display with 19.5 aspect ratio. Besides these, another two Master Editions are there, Onion and Garlic White colors designed by Naoto Fukasawa. The phone also packs the same in display fingerprint sensor which is present inside the OnePlus 7. The good part, the 48MP primary camera works on the Sony IMX586 sensor and not on the Samsung's GM1 sensor which is inferior in terms of image quality and color output. The top-end model with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage will retail for 1,499 Yuan (Rs 15,500 approx) in China.

Interestingly, there's no microSD card slot on the handset.

On the software side, the Realme X runs on Android 9 Pie operating system based on ColorOS 6.0 UI.

Coming to the camera department; at the rear, the device has a 16MP main camera with LED flash, Sony IMX519, f/1.7 aperture, and EIS. The phone features a fingerprint sensor at the back. The front facer elevates to expose a 16MP shooter, and keeping everything in motion is a 3,765mAh battery with OPPO's VOOC 3.0 fast charging technology.

Prices for the Realme X starts from 1499 Yuan (~RM910) for the 4GB RAM + 64GB internal storage variant, 1599 Yuan (~RM971) for the 6GB RAM + 64GB internal storage variant and 1799 Yuan (~RM1092) for the 8GB RAM + 128GB internal storage variant.
