“Realme 6 specifications may include a 90Hz display, MediaTek Helio G90 SoC and 64MP quad camera setup”
Realme 6 and Realme 6 Pro will be launching in a couple of days, and the company has been pretty vocal about their features, including the 64MP AI quad cameras, 90Hz refresh rate, 30W fast-charging and a punch-hole design. A recent leak suggested the Realme 6 and Realme 6 Pro prices in India would start at Rs 9,999 and Rs 13,999, respectively. But the official could be higher based on a recent tweet by Francis Wang, CMO, Realme India. Wang has clarified that Realme 6 is not a successor of Realme 5 in terms of pricing and that the product portfolio has been “redefined.” The executive also mentioned that Realme 6 is the new Pro, which suggest that the phone will be priced higher than Realme 5.

Will Realme 6 and Realme 6 Pro be expensive?
Realme is suggesting that the Realme 6 and Realme 6 Pro will not be priced like the Realme 5 and Realme 5 Pro. The upcoming smartphones will come with major upgrades such as a 90Hz display and 64MP quad cameras, so an increase in pricing is expected. Given how Realme has priced its smartphones in the past, you can still expect the Realme 6 series to launch at competitive prices.
It was previously expected that the Realme 6 will launch in India starting at Rs 9,999 like its predecessor. This would have made the Realme 6 the first phone under Rs 10,000 with a 90Hz display. We now expect the Realme 6 to launch above Rs 10,000, possibly starting at Rs 10,999, which will still make it the cheapest phone with. a 90Hz display. Meanwhile, the Realme 6 Pro price could start at Rs 15,999 and the smartphone could replace the Realme XT.
Realme 6 and Realme 6 Pro specifications
Realme 6 and Realme 6 Pro are expected to come with a full HD+ LCD display, Android 10 OS with Realme UI 1.0 custom skin, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor for security and beefy battery capacities. While the Pro variant is said to be powered by the Snapdragon 720G SoC with up to 8GB RAM, the vanilla Realme 6 is tipped to ship with MediaTek Helio G90 SoC. The vertically-arranged quad-camera setup includes a 64MP primary camera and possibly accompanied by an ultra-wide-angle lens, an ultra-macro lens and a telephoto lens with 20x zoom (on the Pro model)/perhaps a depth sensor on the regular variant.
However, details regarding the front-cameras are unknown at the moment. Both the phone could come in various colours and gradient designs. Both the upcoming Realme phones are up for blind-order sale on the company’s website. Interested users can pre-book them by paying a deposit amount of Rs 1,000.
