ASUS VivoBook S14/S15

Another day, another smartphone launch – but today’s smartphone is something different. The influx of smartphones 64MP cameras is starting to appear! This time, it’s by realme with the brand new realme XT – and it comes with a price of RM1,399.

Essentially, the realme XT is the same as the realme 5 Pro (review) but with a few differences. Here is the specs list for the realme XT:

  • 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display with waterdrop notch (Infinity-U)
    • 2340×1080 pixels in resolution
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 chipset
  • 8GB RAM
  • 128GB of internal storage
  • Quadruple rear-facing cameras
    • Ultrawide angle: 8MP f/2.25
    • Main: 64MP f/1.8 with PDAF
    • Depth sensor
    • Macro: 2MP f/2.4
  • 16MP f/2.0 selfie camera
  • Android 9.0 Pie with ColorOS 6
  • 4,000mAh battery
    • VOOC 3.0 charger inside the box

As you can see, the specs are pretty much the same with the realme 5 Pro (review here). We do get a 0.1-inch larger Super AMOLED display on the realme XT, and a 64MP Samsung GW1 sensor instead of a 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor.

We’ve already seen some preview pictures taken with the 64MP camera sensor and it looks gorgeous. Currently though, our concern is the file size per 64MP picture. Smartphone photography has pretty much transformed all of us to become trigger-happy and rarely delete our photos. Luckily, the realme XT does have a microSD card slot.

I think that the realme XT has nothing particularly outstanding since the realme 5 Pro is already out in the market – but if mobile photography is your main focus, then maybe the realme XT is a great smartphone for you.
