Realme Narzo 30 Pro: Launch date reveal
Realme Narzo 30 series is set to launch in India with the economical version launching tomorrow while the mid-range flagship is set to launch on March 4, 2021. Both the phones, like the rest of the series are available for purchase via a flash sale, a strategy I don’t like in smartphone sales. So all eyes are set on the new MediaTek processors that will feature in this year’s line-up of pseudo-flagships. The Narzo 30 Pro will feature the Mediatek Dimensity 800U processor, which supports 5G and that too dual 5G standby. 5G and some performance improvement are the major selling point of the Realme Narzo 30 Pro. The website displays an Antutu benchmark score of 340K, which is a slight improvement in performance.
To complement the power chugging processor the battery is also bumped up to 5000 mAh so that you can enjoy dual network acceleration and consume some content in the process. The display is exceedingly big and is 6.5 inches bearing an FHD resolution. Realme Narzo 30 Pro has increased the refresh rate to 120 Hz and the touch sampling rate to 180Hz, both of which will offer good performance in games. There is a tiny punch hole camera bearing the same resolutions as last year’s Narzo 20 Pro, 16 megapixels. The quad-camera array is now almost square, unlike the elongated one last year.
From the first glance, nothing seems new in the pictures as the chassis remains identical and bears the same weight. At 194 grams the phone is not light or easy to hold. The color options are also limited to a simple single tone color, namely Silver and Black. You do get the high-refresh-rate display but a fixed one and not an adaptive one. While the battery is increased to 5000 mAh, the fast dart charger is missing from the picture this time. Unlike the 64 W charger last year, you will get a 30 W fast charger. The phone also facilitates reversible charging, wired one, by the type C port, and can charge other phones and accessories.
The phone sheds the portrait lens and features a triple camera array with a ton of AI-powered image improvements. Videos can now be captured in 4K 30 fps with improved video stabilization. No major improvements in the selfie shooter’s resolution which is capped at 17 megapixels. Security mechanisms are restricted to the face unlock and side-mounted fingerprint sensor. No in-display fingerprint sensor, even though it is the third year for the Narzo series. The speaker is also Dolby Atmos-certified so audio will be slightly cleaner and less distorted. The sim card tray can house either two sim cards or a sim card and a MicroSD card. In terms of the operating system, the phone runs on Android 10 with the Realme UI and guarantees the upgrade to Realme UI 2.0 which will release in the second half of this year. No guarantee of Android 11 though, but considering the Realme UI update, it can be a possibility.
Realme Narzo 30 Pro comes with two storage options, 6GB+64GB and 8GB+128GB, the latter of which will cost around 20000 INR.
