3D Unibody Design with Gradient Colours
In order to achieve a singular and seamless product experience and a good hand feeling, realme 3 has adopted a 3D Gradient Unibody Design. It has set the highest standard among realme series in terms of hands-on and visual experience. Through the uni-body process, Realme 3’s back cover and mid-frame are formed in a whole piece, bringing you a seamless design and a complete sense of grip.
The gradient effects of this Dynamic Black are actually the overlap of two layers of black and blue ink. 8 spray guns were precisely controlled to conduct 3 rounds of spray processes. At the same time, the unibodies were baked for 3 times after each spray process while pearl-like particles were added. For Radiant Blue color, one more silver reflective coating layer were added beneath the blue and green gradient layers.
Realme 3 Dynamic Black can deliver wonderful gradient effects between blue and purple when being observed from different angles, while Radiant Blue delivers a stunning and reflecting effect.
The device comes with a dual rear camera, a combination of a 13MP primary camera and a 2MP secondary camera with the primary camera’s single pixel size being 1.12um. The large f/1.8 aperture and 5P lenses combination are a big leap forward in resolution, tolerance, and colour presentation. Decked up with AI scenes recognition technology, it can recognize 16 independent scenes and 100 scene combinations to automatically select the best exposure strategy for better dynamic range and contrast ratio. Proper photographing modes are then matched and adjusted to present a better overall perception. The device also supports 90fps/720P slow-motion video-shooting to slow down the wonderful moments for more fun.
- Nightscape mode
Based on upgraded hardware configurations and better imaging quality, realme 3 is the first to introduce the Nightscape mode into this price range. With the aid of AI, multi-frame synergy and the anti-shake algorithm, the Nightscape mode significantly improves the imaging quality in dim light. The mode enables the device to greatly increase exposure in extreme dim lighting, thus improving more details. While effectively reducing the noise on the images.
- Chroma Boost mode
To meet the user demands for better imaging effect, colour and style, the smartphone has been added with the Chroma Boost mode. Using AI technologies, scenes in photos are recognized and optimized accordingly into a larger dynamic range, with more enriched details in highlighted parts and shadows, and more balanced exposure.
Realme 3 has upgraded to 13MP front cameras in 5P lenses combination, with the aperture enlarged to f/2.0, sensor size to 1/3 inches, and single pixel size to 1.12um. The front camera is equipped with AI Beauty 2.0 mode which enables the users to adjust the extent of beautification as per their preferences with precisely restored details of skin quality, eye, and hair through 296 facial identification points. Another mode, the Group Selfie Beauty mode makes the device automatically identify genders in the same photo to apply the most suitable beautification solutions with up to 4 people is supported.
Realme 3 is the second device from realme which has been powered by MediaTek Helio P70 processor. The powerful Helio P70 adopts TSMC’s latest 12nm FinFET process, which boasts a 15% drop of power consumption compared with the previous 14nm process and can rival the 10nm chip in this regard. P70 comes with multi-threaded APU (AI Processing Unit), which includes multi-core processors and smart control logic processors. When combined with NeuroPilot and the brand new smart multi-thread scheduler, it can be two times more efficient in power consumption than GPU. It can achieve 280 GMAC per second in terms of computing processing capacity, making the processor the most powerful artificial processing terminal among its same level.
P70 is also equipped with the CorePilot 4.0 intelligent task scheduling system that enables better hardware resources management. Through self-regulating temperature control, user experience monitoring, and energy awareness scheduling (EAS+). The processor adopts the 8-core structure and is equipped with four Cortex-A53 cores and four Cortex-A73 cores, with the clock speed up to 2.1GHz.
