realme 3 Brings On The Style & Huge 4,230mAh Battery From RM599

Wednesday, March 20, 2019

realme has expanded their portfolio of products in the Malaysia market once again in a relatively short time. Having debuted here with the trio of realme 2 Pro, realme 2 and realme C1 back in November last year, they are back with the all-new realme 3.

The realme 3 shares the same DNA as the rest of its predecessors when it comes to price. The phone presents a bang-for-your-buck price which starts from just RM599. It will also be available at RM699 for a variant that packs more RAM and storage.

Like the realme 2 Pro, the realme 3 has a dewdrop-style display with a tiny notch at the middle to give a wider field of view and a screen-to-body ratio of 88.3%. Powering the phone is the MediaTek Helio P60 processor while it runs on Color OS 6.0, the newest iteration of the operating system that also powers the latest Oppo smartphones, and offers a better-looking and better-working software experience with a new borderless design.

It has a dual rear cameras setup and you can expect to find several AI features on offer such as AI scene recognition and a new Chroma Boost mode which uses AI technology to identify and optimise scenes, increase the overall dynamic range of photo, reveal richer details in highlights and shadows as well as give a more balanced exposure. The realme 3 is also not missing out on the night photography trend as it offers its own Nightscape mode - touted to be the first such mode on a smartphone within this price range. The AI-powered feature uses multi-frame synthesis and anti-shake algorithms to enhance exposure under extreme low light conditions and controls the noise level.

With a large 4,230mAh battery and intelligent power-saving features, the realme 3 ensures all-day usage. Below are the key specs:

  • 6.22-inch HD+ IPS display (1520 x 720 pixels)

  • 3GB/4GB RAM

  • Octa-core MediaTek Helio P60 processor

  • 32GB/64GB internal storage memory (expandable via microSD)

  • Dual SIM

  • Rear fingerprint reader

  • Android 9.0 Pie (with Color OS 6.0)

  • 13MP main lens + 2MP depth sensor dual rear cameras

  • 13MP front camera

  • 4,230mAh battery with fast charging

The realme 3 will hit local store shelves and 1,000 realme dealers nationwide beginning April 6 at RM599 for the 3GB RAM + 32GB storage model and RM699 for the 4GB RAM + 64GB storage model. However, you can get your hands on the 3GB+32GB model earlier at a special price of RM549 in conjunction with Lazada Malaysia’s 7th birthday celebration on March 27. More details can be found here. The phone arrives in three attractive colors with gradient finish - Classic Black, Dynamic Black and Radiant Blue.

Limited edition exclusive "Galaxy Inspired Collection" phone cases for the realme 3 designed by renowned local watercolour artist Joee Cheong (as seen below) will be given as a free gift for 5o lucky customers who purchase the phone.
