The new Realme 3 Pro smartphone features a design quite identical to the Realme 3, which launched earlier. Powered by a Snapdragon 710 chipset and up to 6GB of RAM, the phone takes on Xiaomi's Redmi Note 7 Pro. Realme CEO Madhav Sheth has been sharing teasers for the camera capabilities of the Realme 3 Pro which include an Ultra HD mode for 64MP shots, Nightscape mode and Chroma Boost mode.

Realme 3 Pro will be available in three colors - Carbon Gray, Nitro Blue, Lightning Purple. The base variant of the device, 2GB+16GB has been priced at Rs 5,999 whereas the 3GB+32GB will retail at Rs 7,999. The chipset is paired with 4GB or 6GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of internal storage, depending on the variant. Connectivity features include Global Positioning System, a dual-SIM Card slot, 4G LTE, VoLTE, dual-band Wi-Fi b/g/n/ac, Wi-Fi Direct, Bluetooth 5.0, microUSB 2.0 port and a 3.5mm headphone jack. For rear optics, Realme has included a 16 MP Sony IMX 519 sensor which is the same used in the OnePlus 6T (Review) along with a 5 MP depth sensor. Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro is popularly touted as the camera beast with a 48MP primary lens paired with a 5MP secondary snapper at the back, complete with features like PDAF EIS, AI portrait and dual LED flash. Lastly, the phone packs a 4,000mAh battery and measures 154.3x73.7x8.5mm. The front camera further features several modes that include Advanced SelfiePro algorithm, AI beautification, and Group selfie modes. Realme is even providing a 20W VOOC 3.0 charger inside the box, and it is claimed to charge the Realme 3 Pro in just over an hour.

However, if you don't like the way Realme has mixed and matched the features on the Realme 3 Pro, we've compiled three alternative handsets that we believe will suit the needs of most of you who are looking to buy a phone for in and around Rs 17,000 in India.
