Realme U1 with a new logo design and super specs doesn’t fail to impress

Other budget phones have a lot to live up to

The first in the U series of Realme phones, the U1 is being touted as ‘India’s Selfie Pro’. Now these sound like tall claims, given the starting price tag of a mere ₹11,999, don't they? However, the power of the MediaTek Helio P70 and a 25MP front camera gives it enough credibility to be considered the real deal. The new HD depth-of-field engine, P70’s powerful image processing capacity and bokeh effects on the 6.3in Dewdrop FullScreen make the claim sound more believable. The ‘with it’ generation can rejoice as much in the specs that support mobile gaming considering the price of the phone (3 GB RAM + 32 GB ROM at ₹11,999 and 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM at ₹14,999), which is going to be launched in three colour options: Fiery Gold, Ambitious Black and Brave Blue from December 5 at Amazon. Our selfie-obsessed population needn’t feel the burden of spending the equivalent of their kidneys on a smartphone anymore. With these specs and prices to match, we’re looking forward to checking out the performance in our review real soon.
