Realme XT launch date in India set for September 13: Specs, expected price

Realme XT will launch in India on Friday, September 13. The company has sent out invites for the launch event of the Realme XT, which will begin at 12pm. The Realme XT will be the first 64MP quad camera phone to launch in India. The launch comes soon after the Realme 5 and Reame 5 Pro, which also highlight quad cameras. In addition to a 64MP quad camera system, the Realme XT also touts a Snapdragon 712 SoC, Dewdrop AMOLED display, premium glass design and up to 8GB of RAM, among other things.

Realme recently gave India Today Tech a chance to go hands-on with the Realme XT while confirming its key specifications as well. The price and availability of the Realme XT will be announced on September 13. Considering the Realme XT is a premium mid-range smartphone, we expect the phone to slot just above the Realme X with a price somewhere around Rs 20,000.

Realme XT specifications

Realme has revealed that the Realme XT sports a 6.4-inch FHD+ (1080x2340) Super AMOLED display. It will offer a waterdrop notch rather than a completely notch-free screen. This will also be Realme's first phone to offer Gorilla Glass on the back. It is a curved glass panel that will come in white and blue gradient colours.

The Realme X is powered by a 2.3GHz octa-core Snapdragon 712 SoC, which is the same processor powering the recently launched Realme 5 Pro. The XT will come in 4GB, 6GB and 8GB RAM options in India along with 64GB and 128GB of internal storage. It will also support storage expandability up to 256GB via microSD card, a feature that was missing on the Realme X. Realme XT packs a 4,000mAh battery and supports VOOC 3.0 fast charging over Type-C.

The USP of the Realme XT is its 64MP quad camera setup. Realme is using Samsung's 64-megapixel Samsung GW1 for the primary camera that will use Tertracell technology to combine multiple 16MP shots to offer a bright and detailed high-resolution photo. The quad camera setup will also include an 8-megapixel ultra wide-angle lens, a 2-megapixel macro lens and a 2-megapixel depth sensor, which are similar to what you get on the Realme 5-series as well.

Realme XT will be the company's most premium offering yet. It will launch in India on September 13, edging out Xiaomi's Redmi Note 8 Pro by a few weeks. To recall, the Redmi Note 8 Pro is also a 64MP quad camera phone that was recently launched in China. The Redmi Note 8 Pro will come to India sometime during the end of October.
