Realme has just unveiled its latest addition to its portfolio dubbed Realme 3i, the company’s latest smartphone in the Realme 3 series.
The Realme 3i, as you could guess, is a version of the Realme 3 that was launched earlier this year. The Realme 3i brings a lot of the same features and specs as the Realme 3, but at a lower price point. It slots right in between the entry-level Realme C2 and the Realme 3.
The Realme 3i comes with a Dewdrop display and a diamond-cut design on the back much like the Realme C2. Under the hood, the phone packs a Helio P60 chipset and a large battery capacity.

Realme 3i Features
The Realme 3i offers a familiar Dewdrop display that we have seen previously on the Realme C2, Realme 3 and Realme 3 Pro. The rear panel also gets a diamond-cut texture on a matt-like finish which is again similar to the Realme C2. The main difference is that the Realme 3i gets a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, while the Realme C2 does not. It also comes in a unique new Diamond Red gradient colour option.
Powering the Realme 3i is a MediaTek Helio P60 chipset, which has powered phones like the Realme 1 in the past. It is an octa-core processor that is known to deliver a smooth performance for day-to-day operations while offering good power efficiency. In comparison, the Realme 3 gets a newer Helio P70 SoC.
The Realme 3i also highlights a large 4,230mAh battery like the Realme 3. This should enable the phone to offer over a full day battery life on a single charge when combined with a power efficient Helio P60 chipset and some smart battery saving features on ColorOS 6.
The smartphone also ships with ColorOS 6 based on Android Pie out of the box. ColorOS 6 brings a number of new features such as an app drawer, gesture-based navigation and new gradient theme for the UI, among other things.

The 3GB + 32GB version goes for $116 while the 4GB + 64GB version goes for $145
