Oppo RealMe 1 Goes Official for Rs 8990 with a Helio P60 Processor and No Fingerprint Sensor
Targeted at millennials, Chinese smartphone maker OPPO on Tuesday debuted its sub-brand "Realme 1" smartphone in India for Rs 8,990 (3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage model).
The new company today (15 May) has launched their device Realme 1 which is an Amazon exclusive and will go on sale starting from 25 May, 12 pm onwards. The latter handset will go live on Amazon in June, but the other two will be made available as early as May 25. The Realme 1 runs ColorOS 5.0 on top Android 8.1 Oreo while the Redmi Note 5 Pro has the MIUI 9 on top of Android 7 Nougat.
According to the Amazon page, the Realme 1 smartphone will come with a "unique diamond back design", thus making it stand out against the "generic" design that has become common in the affordable smartphone category. Another feature to make its way from the F7 is the Diamond Black rear design, an interlacing pattern that allows the phone to catch the light at various angles. Once again, the ASUS Zenfone Max Pro M1 has the same specs as the Redmi Note 5 Pro: 4GB RAM and 64GB internal memory. Users can also extend the storage via a dedicated microSD card slot. The smartphone will be available in three variants, one with 3GB RAM/32GB storage, second with 4GB RAM/64GB storage and the third with 6GB RAM/128GB storage.
The device will be powered by MediaTek's Helio P60 which the company claims is the first smartphone powered by 12nm processor. The smartphone also comes with an Indian theme.
Coming to the cameras, there is a single 13MP rear camera & an 8MP front-facing camera.
Along with the powerful specifications, the Realme 1 also offers attractive design. The smartphone carries a 6-inch full-HD+ display panel with 1080x2160 pixels resolution with 84.75 percent of screen-to-body ratio.
The dual-SIM handset is backed by a 3,410mAh battery. The background processes are automatically shut down to save the battery as the processor learns user's usage habits.
The Realme 1 bears a 13-megapixel primary sensor with LED flash.
As part of the promotional campaign, the company is offering 5% cash discount to SBI cardholders, up to Rs 4,850 worth data benefits on Reliance Jio and there is also zero-cost EMI options, as well.
This phone has face recognition feature but does not incorporate fingerprint sensor. The front camera has AI Beauty mode which is said to recognize 296 facial points based on gender to enhance selfies. The cameras are touted to have AI beautification and AR stickers.
