Realme is the fastest-growing smartphone brand in India. The Realme X series had been one of the devices in the mid-range segment the country in the last year. The Realme X, X2, and the XT were mid-rangers while the company also managed to launch Realme X2 Pro and the Realme X50 Pro flagship smartphones with aggressive pricing.
With the launch of Realme 6 series devices, Realme made it very clear that the ‘Pro’ series will take care of the X series in India while the numeric series(Realme 5, 6) will replace the ‘Pro’ series.
In the next few months, we are expecting Realme to announce the new Realme X3 series smartphones in India. The major change we expect from the series is the price shift, thanks to the new GST rates and also the company’s strategy. We are expecting the company to announce at least two new devices in the Realme X3 series.
Now, with the Realme X3 series, Realme will take the X series to replace 'Pro' series in the flagship. So, the X3 will be the successor to the Realme X2 Pro. And, the new X3 Super Zoom will be the company's camera-centric flagship device.
Here is everything you need to know about the upcoming Realme X3 series.
Cut to the chase
Which phones? Realme X3, X3 Super Zoom

Flipkart has already revealed that both the X3 and X3 Super Zoom will sport the last-gen Snapdragon 855+ chipset. This will eliminate 5G and will also save up on the cost front. Since Realme is using a slightly old processor, we can expect the pricing to be aggressive, if not jaw-dropping.

The device is likely to come with an in-display fingerprint scanner as all the previous X series smartphones featured AMOLED panel with an in-display fingerprint scanner. Other features include Dolby Atmos and Hi-Res audio certification, NFC, Bluetooth 5 and 2.4+ 5G WiFi.
The Realme X3 could start at around Rs 25,000 in India for the base variant with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage.
