Realme announced the launch date of Realme 3 Pro at the launch event of Realme 3 in New Delhi. Realme CEO Madhav Sheth announced that the phone will be launched in April this year. While no details of the upcoming device were shared, one thing was made clear that Realme 3 Pro will compete against the newly launched Redmi Note 7 Pro.
Presumably, the phone will be an upgrade to the Realme 3 and may sport a better processor as the teaser “speed awakens” suggests. Since Realme is putting its upcoming device against Redmi Note 7 Pro, which comes with 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor, Realme 3 Pro might have a better camera as well.
Watch: Realme 2 Pro review
Whether Realme 3 Pro will have a 48MP camera sensor or not, is unclear at the moment. At the start of the year 2019, Realme CEO Madhav Sheth told Indianexpress.com that the company is working on a 48MP camera, though he did not reveal which device this could be on.
Later on, he refuted this adding that the company has no plans to launch a smartphone with “such high megapixel-count camera sensor anytime soon”.
Given the fact, Realme compared the 13MP+2MP camera of the Realme 3 with the 48MP camera of Redmi Note 7 China variant at the launch event, it is also possible that Realme 3 Pro will take a different route from the 48MP sensor.
