Entry- and mid-tier smartphones these days are giving premium devices a run for their money. Enter the Realme 6 and Realme6 Pro with their latest mobile devices that pack flagship-tier components at a mid-tier price.

The Realme 6 series phones feature an IPS LCD display with 90Hz refresh rate and 120Hz touch sampling rate, AI quad-camera systems on the rear, running on Realme UI based on Android 10 OS. Both models have 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage, supporting two SIM cards and one MicroSD card simultaneously with their three-card slot. These 4G/LTE phones have a 4,300mAh battery capacity that supports 30W VOOC Flash Charge, with a compatible battery charging adaptor in-the-box. In case you're wondering why we brought these features up, it's because they're usually reserved for devices in significantly higher price ranges.
