Three features made me very excited to unbox the realme Pad X tablet – Limelight front camera, 2K display, and Snapdragon 695 processor.
Its processor is promising in terms of gaming performance, the high display resolution means graphics should be sharp, and limelight means the front camera can simulate pan and zoom to keep a person in the center of the frame while on a video call.
The company should have printed the name of the tablet on the front of its box. Instead, it’s just an image of the device and Dolby ATMOS branding.
You have to turn the box on its sides to get a glimpse of the “realme PAD X” name and realme’s own logo.
Opening the box immediately reveals the tablet. Underneath it is the 33W charger, USB Type-C cable, user manual, and ejector pin for the microSD card tray.
realme says this tablet is compatible with the realme Pencil stylus and realme Smart Keyboard but both accessories are sold separately.
The realme Pencil can magnetically attach to the side of the tablet and re-charge at the same time.
Upon examining the realme Pad X for the first time, it gave me a solid mid-range tablet vibe.
It follows the current trend in terms of design with its flat sides and matte finish although I feel like the Glowing Gray color variant looks sleeker than Glacier Blue.
The back panel remains free from smudges and fingerprints but the front of the tablet can retain some smudges after a few swipes.
When held in landscape mode, the power button and volume rocker is on the upper left corner of the device. A microSD card tray is accessible at the bottom and a USB Type-C port is on the right side.
There are two speaker grilles on each side for a total of four loudspeakers. They sound good with balanced stereo output, clear mids/highs, and a hint of bass.
Now let’s come to the screen – it’s a 10.95-inch 2K display with 2000 x 1200 pixels of resolution or 213 ppi of pixel density. This resolution is enough to make graphics and images appear clear and sharp on the large screen.
It’s also bright enough for outdoor use with a ‘Sunlight Mode Brightness” of up to 450 nits. It should remain legible during a bright sunny day.
One feature that makes the realme Pad X perfect for online meetings and classes is called Limelight. Its 8 Megapixel front camera has an ultra-wide 105° field-of-view that it can digitally pan and zoom to keep the user’s face in the center of the frame during video calls.
I tried this with Zoom by moving side to side and then walking back from the tablet. It was still able to follow me smoothly with the Limelight feature!
This is an interesting and useful feature.
For performance in productivity or casual tasks and gaming, I’ll have to test the realme Pad X further. I plan on testing its performance while playing games, fast scrolling social media feeds, and more.
I will also measure its battery longevity, charging time, and benchmark scores.
All of these will be in the full review. Follow Pinoy Techno Guide on Facebook to be notified once it’s available.
