The Realme 3 smartphone has been officially launched in the Philippines promising great gaming and photography at an affordable price.

It features a MediaTek Helio P60 SoC and a Nightscape camera. The latter uses multiple exposures and software techniques to produce bright images at night — something that’s only found in more expensive flagship smartphones until now.


Powered by the MediaTek Helio P60

The Realme 3 variant in the Philippines is powered by the 12nm MediaTek Helio P60 SoC.

It has four 2.0GHz Cortex-A73 CPU cores, another four Cortex-A53 CPU cores running at the same speed and a Mali-G72 graphics processor.

There’s also 3GB of RAM, 64GB of expandable storage and the new ColorOS 6.0 software which is based on Android 9.0 Pie.


13 + 2 MP Dual Camera with Nightscape

The Realme 3 has a dual rear camera setup composed of a 13 Megapixel main camera and a 2 Megapixel depth sensor.

It has a pretty wide f/1.8 aperture, AI scene recognition and slow-motion video capture. Two camera modes make it more special though: Nightscape and Chroma Boost.

While Nightscape make low light images appear sharper and brighter, Chroma Boost improves dynamic range and makes color more vivid.
