As per Realme’s lab tests, the camera has a 200,000 slide cycle that can be translated as 10 years of life span even if a person takes 50 selfies every day. The camera sensor also comes with a fall detection sensor that retracts the popup camera automatically when it detects a free fall.
Realme X sports a dual rear camera setup carrying a primary 48MP camera sensor with f/1.7 aperture clubbed with a depth sensor of 5MP with f/2.4 aperture. The rear camera supports four-in-one pixel binning technology and the camera also comes with Chroma Boost and Nightscape modes.
