Realme recently completed two years as an independent and successful brand. Since it’s separated from OPPO, the company has aggressively launched new devices every month and this has allowed it to break its way into the top five smartphone brands in India. The company’s objective, however, is to be a tech lifestyle brand and this is why it is launching a new smartphone series for Gen-Z in India. All New Narzo series includes two new phones – Realme Narzo 10 and 10A – powered by MediaTek G series chipsets and focus on photography.
While Realme was supposed to launch these devices in March, the launch was delayed due to the COVID-19 lockdown in India. Both of these devices are rebranded versions of previously launched Realme devices with certain aesthetic changes.
Realme Narzo 10
The Realme Narzo 10 is the superior of the two models launching today. It is, in fact, a rebranded Realme 6i, which has already been launched in Europe. The phone is powered by the MediaTek Helio G80 chipset with a 4GB LPDDR4X RAM. It comes with a 128GB eMMC storage which can be further expanded with a microSD card for which the Realme Narzo 10 has a dedicated slot.
The Narzo 10 features a 6.5-inch HD+ display with The Strongest Gorilla Glass. Realme did not specify the version of the Gorilla Glass protection. The backside of the Realme Narzo 10 is made of polycarbonate with a satiny finish similar to the Realme X Master Edition. The phone comes in two colors called, That White and That Green.
When it comes to the cameras, the Realme Narzo 10 features a quad camera setup on the back comprising a 48MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultrawide sensor, a 2MP depth sensor, and a 2MP macro camera. On the front, there’s a 16MP selfie camera.
In terms of the battery capacity, the Narzo 10 comes with a 5,000mAh battery along with support for 18W fast charging via the USB-C port.
In terms of software, the phone is running the company’s custom skin Realme UI which is based on Android 10.
Realme Narzo 10A
The younger, Narzo 10A, also comes with a 6.5-inch HD+ display with Gorilla Glass 3. This one is the rebranded version of the global variant of the Realme C3, which differs from the Indian Realme C3 (gaming review) and was launched in Thailand back in February and then globally in March. Realme has made changes to the back design of the SKU and the Realme Narzo 10A comes with a scratch-resistant polycarbonate body with a large Realme logo. The Narzo 10A comes in two color variants – White and Blue.
The Narzo 10A features triple cameras including a 12MP primary camera, 2MP macro camera, and a 2MP depth sensor. On the front, there’s a 5MP selfie camera.
The phone comes with MediaTek Helio G70 chipset with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage. It features a 5,000mAh battery but you may be limited to 10W charging via the microUSB port.
As far as software is concerned, the Realme Narzo 10A will also be running on Realme UI based on Android 10.
