If you haven’t heard of it yet, Realme Philippines – known as a sub-brand of OPPO, officially launched their Realme 3 last Tuesday (March 19, 2019) at Solaire Resort and Casino in Pasay City. The hashtag #DiscoverRealValue did not disappoint as brand representatives unveiled specs that are at par with the performance of other mid-range phones in the market at a much much more affordable price. By “affordable”, we mean below Php 8,000 –and there are ways to get it at an even lower price!
About Realme 3
The Realme 3 boasts of its high-capacity 4230mAh battery that can last up to two days, a MediaTek Helio P60 processor that doesn’t consume a lot of juice, dual rear cameras (13MP + 2MP) with AI Nightscape Mode that are decent enough to be used for your upcoming summer trips. Those into mobile photography might want to take note of its built-in Chroma Boost that makes every photo look more fresh and vibrant. As for those who also care about #aesthetics, Realme 3 comes in two variants that mimic the color schemes of the galaxy – Dynamic Black and Radiant Blue.
Fun fact: The Dynamic Black variant is composed of layers of paint systematically sprayed over for a striking purple, black and blue gradient. The addition of pearl powder completes the phone’s allusion to the Milky Way. The Radiant Blue version glows with the colors of planet Mercury, an amazing gradient of blue and green made from translucent blue-green ink.
