realme’s track record for rolling out amazingly spec-ed smartphones (and a slew of other gadgets) at a fraction of the usual market price has been receiving a lot of attention from technology enthusiasts and fans throughout the world. The latest realme 6 Pro, the successor to the realme 5 Pro will have such a huge leap in upgrades as it will be the world’s first smartphone to be equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G chipset as well as the flagship-level feature of having a 90Hz refresh rate display. All these deployed in a mid-range smartphone, how’s that for true value?
World’s First With Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G
The Snapdragon 720G processor is made using an advanced 8nm process. This increases the processor’s efficiency and makes it even more powerful. The processor consists of the Kryo 465 CPU with two high-performance Cortex-A76 cores at up to 2.3GHz, including six high-efficiency Cortex-A55 cores at up to 1.8GHz.
The GPU is an Adreno 618 GPU, which also comes with the Snapdragon 730G.
When compared to the last generation processor, the Snapdragon 720G performs at an increment of 10% in CPU performance, 75% in graphics performance and up to a huge 220% leap in Artificial Intelligence Engine (AIE) performance.
While all these may sound incredibly technical, the Snapdragon 720G is essentially going to enhance the experience of using the realme 6 Pro where users can operate and run multiple apps without falter. Furthermore, with a 10% increase in CPU performance, apps will open faster and run smoothly with no issues. The realme 6 Pro will take on any task with a breeze.
Additionally the gaming experience is further improved due to having over 75% increase in graphical prowess. This means mobile games, which can run on the predecessor chipset, can now be played even more smoothly and beautifully.
Buttery Smooth 90Hz Display Now Available On realme 6 Pro
The realme 6 Pro’s 6.6-inch display now comes with a 90Hz Ultra Smooth Display, which features a 90Hz refresh rate and 120Hz sampling rate.
This means that the display will be able to produce 90 frames per second. It boasts a 50% increase in refresh rate capabilities when compared to a traditional 60Hz display.
For general knowledge, most contemporary smartphone screens feature a 60Hz refresh rate. This means the display refreshes 60 times per second to display a static image (photos) or a moving image (videos/ games). Additionally, frame rate (FPS) and refresh rate (Hz) go hand-in-hand. FPS means how many frames of the image (such as video or game) is being processed and pushed to the display every second by the processor.
So how does all this relate to the 6 Pro having a 90Hz refresh rate, and what are the benefits? It means that the realme 6 Pro can fully refresh all the frames of videos and games that were designed to run at 90 frames per second effortlessly, so content that has a high frame rate gets displayed with no “friction”. Moreover, it produces a noticeable change in the smoothness of the UI in a way that animations are smoother and feels more real and organic.
The realme 6 Pro’s frame rate also has a 50% increase. This effectively allows images on screen to move in silky smooth fluidity. Complex games will definitely benefit from this feature a lot, which enhances how gamers would interact with the visuals on screen where it feels more natural due to the lagless command feedback - resulting in higher accuracy and control speeds.
The experience of having a 90Hz display is quite significant for graphics and UI enthusiasts as the result is buttery smooth visuals that the user will experience through each and every movement on screen. Once you go 90Hz, you’ll never go back.
At a 90.6% screen-to-body ratio, it provides an experience of a full-screen slate. At 2400 X 1080P FHD+ resolution and 480nits peak brightness, you will be assured that your visuals are as crisp and detailed as intended.
Last but not least, a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 5 covers the display as a strong barrier to prevent accidental damage to the screen.
The realme 6 Pro might be realme’s 2020 mid-ranger but the specifications it possesses can easily rival the flagships of smartphones launched up until late 2019. With a great processor and a 90Hz display, it definitely holds one of the best values for a smartphone that you can buy at this point in time.
