Realme has successfully launched the Realme 6i a few weeks ago. To us it is a very capable gaming phone under 10k. But there are some buyers out there who are willing to spend a little more for features like 90Hz display and a nore powerful chipset. This is where the Realme 6 Pro comes in. We had the unit for about 3 days and here’s our first impressions.

HARDWARE

It seems like the Realme 6 series share the same design footprint. It looks very similar with the Realme 6i but with notable distinct differences. The Realme 6 Pro looks and feels like a premium phone with its reassuring heft and that striking pattern at the back. Its eye catchy and we personally love it. Two thongs you need to know – it has a 3.5mm audio jack and the power button doubles as a fingerprint scanner.


One of the highlight features of the Realme 6 Pro is display. It supports 90Hz refresh rate. Found in the display settings you can choose the standard 60Hz or the higher 90Hz. By default it set to auto select. As for the display, we have a large 6.6-inch display. It is on a warm side and it is quite bright. We have to test this display and its impact on th battery for the full review.

SOFTWARE

Realme now has its own UI as it ditched its sister brand’s ColorOS. Called the Realme UI, it looks and feels like more vanilla Android. On the other hand, under the hood, the phone is powered by a Snapdragon 720G. This is an upgrade from Snapdragon 712 found on the Realme XT. We are excited to test this for gaming.

FIRST CAMERA SAMPLES

Another highlight of this phone are its cameras. We have a 64MP main camera and two selfie cameras – 16MP main and 8MP ultrawide. This is not the first time we encountered two cameras at the front. We took our first sample photos using the rear cameras and the dual selfie cameras. Check it out and you will be the judge.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS

The Realme 6 Pro left us impressed and excited to put it into the test. We were definitely impressed that Realme managed to put a 90 Hz display to a midrange phone. Gaming won’t be the same again once you try a 90Hz screen. Full review coming up soon!
