Realme XT with 64MP camera to be launched in India on September 13
Realme XT, which was unveiled by the Chinese smartphone manufacturer in China last month, is set to be launched in India on September 13. Last month, Realme had showcased the 64MP camera technology in India and had also confirmed that it would be the first country to get this smartphone. The launch event was confirmed by Realme on Thursday when it sent out media invites for the same. With this, the Realme XT will become the first smartphone to come with a 64MP camera in India. The launch comes less than a month after Realme had launched two budget smartphones here - Realme 5 and Realme 5 Pro.
The Realme XT is expected to come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 processor, Dewdrop AMOLED display, premium glass design and up to 8GB of RAM, among other things. The price and availability of the smartphone will be announced on September 13. However, it should cost around Rs 20,000 just like the Realme X which was launched two months back.

The biggest highlight of the smartphone is its 64MP primary camera which uses Samsung's 64-megapixel Samsung GW1 sensor that comes with Tertracell technology which combines multiple 16MP shots to offer a bright and detailed high-resolution photo. The quad cam setup is completed by an 8-megapixel ultra wide-angle lens, a 2-megapixel macro lens and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. The phone will compete against Xiaomi's Redmi Note 8 Pro which is expected to be launched in India before Diwali.
