Realme wants to deliver real value
After much teasing, it’s finally here. Realme Philippines has finally brought over their newest smartphone, the Realme 3 to the Philippines. Many of you are probably familiar with the phone thanks to its earlier launch in the Indian market, but for those who aren’t, here’s a quick refresher.
The Realme 3 is the latest smartphone from former OPPO sub-brand Realme, packed with mid-tier tech at an affordable price. The phone comes with a glossy, gradient back which helps soften the blow of the plastic body.
The screen is a 6.2-inch HD+ LTPS IPS display with a dewdrop notch, protected by Gorilla Glass 3. The phone has all the essentials that most people look for: a fingerprint scanner, big battery along with dual rear cameras.
What really sets the Realme 3 apart is the processor inside: the phone runs MediaTek’s Helio P60 chipset that comes with 3GB/4GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB of storage depending on the configuration you buy.
Realme is also particularly proud of the phone’s low-light capabilities and chroma boost mode, which makes shooting dark, challenging conditions a breeze.
The Realme 3 is priced very aggressively, with the most affordable 3GB/32GB variant coming in at just Php 6,990. If you’d like to have more storage, you can go for the 3GB/64GB variant at Php 1,000 more at Php 7,990. The top end variant is priced at Php 9,990. The 3GB/64GB variant will be available starting April 13, while the 4GB/64GB variant will be available starting April 6.
That’s not all: people who want the best deal should go to Shopee on midnight, March 25, where you’ll be able to score a further 10% discount on the most affordable variant of the phone. That means you’ll be able to score the 3GB/32GB variant of the phone for just 6,290. Realme is also making the Realme 3 3GB/64GB available through Home Credit, offering it at 9/12 months Easy Plan through Home Credit. People who want the highest tier variant can go for the 6 months, 0 interest offer of Home Credit as well.
