Oppo Realme 1 Forum Is Now Open: It is fair to say that competition is heating up in the budget and lower mid-range price segments in the Indian smartphone market. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro was the first phone to launch with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 system-on-chip in India.
Oppo Realme 1 Forum Is Now Open
It was following the Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1, which has an even lower price tag. Now, Oppo has officially launched the Realme 1 in India. It is the first smartphone in Realme series, and it is a lower mid-range phone.
Realme is a new Oppo sub-brand, and Realme smartphones will be exclusively available online. They will also price aggressively.
The Realme 1 has a 6-inch Full HD+ (2160×1080) IPS display, the MediaTek Helio P60 SoC, and a 13MP rear camera. Its pricing starts at Rs. 8990 ($132) for the 3GB RAM/32GB storage variant undercutting all of its competitors.
Let’s take a look at the Realme 1’s specifications:
The Oppo Realme 1’s design is similar to the Oppo F7, which was launching in March. It features the same reflective back with fibreglass which is fibre-reinforced plastic.
The phone uses onscreen buttons for navigation. Strangely, it does not have a fingerprint sensor. Instead, it relies on AI-assisted Face Unlock for unlocking the phone, which is said to unlock the phone in less than 0.1 seconds.
Face unlocking is software-based, so users won’t be able to use it to authenticate purchases. It means that the omission of the fingerprint sensor is a significant drawback.
The MediaTek Helio P60 system-on-chip powers the phone. It is the flagship chip in the Helio P series, and it is manufacturing on a 12nm FinFET process.
It features four ARM Cortex-A73 cores clocked at 2.0GHz along with four ARM Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 2.0GHz, paired with the Mali-G72MP3 GPU. The SoC has support for NeuroPilot, MediaTek’s AI technology.
It has a 2-core mobile APU Artificial Intelligence Processing Unit dedicated to AI tasks.
On paper, the SoC’s performance should be better than that of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636. It is also a substantial leap ahead of all previous Helio P series chips.
The Realme 1 has three RAM and storage configurations, although only two variants will be available at the beginning.
It has 3GB of RAM with 32GB of storage, 4GB of RAM with 64GB of storage, or 6GB of RAM with 128GB of storage. The 4GB RAM variant will available at a later stage.
All variants have a dedicating microSD card slot, instead of using a hybrid SIM/microSD slot. Thanks to the triple slot, users can use two SIM cards and a microSD card at the same time.
The phone’s display is a 6-inch Full HD+ (2160×1080) IPS LCD. Unlike the Oppo F7, it doesn’t have a notch. The Realme 1 has a 13MP rear camera with a f/2.2 aperture and an 8MP front-facing camera with f/2.2 aperture.
A 3410mAh battery with 5V/2A charging powers it. The phone has AI Battery Management, a feature that learns users’ usage habits and shuts down background apps to lower power consumption.
It has the usual connectivity options including a micro USB port, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. It ships with ColorOS 5.0 (Oppo’s custom UI) with an exclusive and unique theme designed for India on top of Android 8.1 Oreo.
