Since the brand’s founding in 2018, Realme has expanded to several series. Aside from the usual numbered series, you have the flagship X-series, budget-friendly C-series, and the affordable 5G V-series. there’s the India-only Narzo series that is available only online. The latest under the line is the Narzo 20 series, which comprises of three models that have a v-shaped graphic on the back panel. Like with the Narzo 10 series. the Narzo 20 series are variations of other Realme phones that were previously released. Let’s break them down to you
Realme Narzo 20A = A Realme 5i with one less camera
From the internals (Snapdragon 665, 3GB/4GB RAM, 32GB/64GB RAM), battery (5000mAh with MicroUSB charging), to the display (6.5-inch HD+ with a waterdrop notch for the 8-megapixel selfie snapper), the Narzo 20A is identical to the 5i, though it drops the ultra-wide-angle camera from its rear camera setup.
Realme Narzo 20 = A Realme C12 on steroids
While it shares the same design as the Realme C12, the Narzo 20 gets a couple of beefy upgrades. To start off, it ditches the C12’s Helio G35 processor for a more powerful Helio G85, which means that the Narzo has serious muscle to boot. You also get a higher 64GB/128GB storage option, along with more RAM at 4GB. The triple rear camera setup is led by a 48-megapixel main snapper, and the Narzo 20 drops the C12’s mono camera for a more useful 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera. Rounding up the upgrades is a USB-C port and 18w wired charging.
Realme Narzo 20 Pro = A slightly downgraded Realme 7
Rounding up the Narzo 20 series is the Narzo 20 Pro, which is a variation of the Realme 7 in essence. Almost everything on the Narzo 20 Pro is similar to the Realme 7 except for three things: you get a lower-resolution 48-megapixel main rear camera, a depth sensor instead of a mono sensor, and a slightly smaller 4500mAh battery that throws in support for 65w SuperDART wired charging.
