Chinese smartphone manufacturer realme has enjoyed two years in the business since its inception, offering users a diverse pick of earphones, smartwatches, t-shirts, bags, fitness bands, and other products. The list is set to expand once again, as the team looks to close off 2020 with three new additions: the realme 7Pro, Buds Wireless Pro, and Watch S.
Building upon its predecessor, the 7Pro is built to be slimmer and lighter at 8.7mm and 182g with a refreshed aesthetic to boot. The AG Split Design divides the phone’s rear into two different shades of the same colour, and comes alongside an anti-glare feature. Flip to the front, and users will be greeted by a 16.3-inch Super AMOLED display, an on-screen fingerprint unlocking mechanic, and a 32MP front camera accompanying the 64MP camera on the back. Running on a Snapdragon 720G chipset, the smartphone also offers a three-card slot (2x nano-SIM, 1x microSD) in addition to several photography features like night filters and multi-frame algorithm.
The main draw of the 7Pro, however, is its 65W SuperDart Charge technology, which makes the company the first within its price segment to have this quick-charging advantage. On paper, it’s capable of reaching a full charge from zero per cent battery life in just 34 minutes, with a three-minute charge delivering 2.5 hours of YouTube use, 2 hours of Instagram-surfing, or 3 rounds of PUBG Mobile. Available in either Mirror Blue or Mirror Silver, the phone will be retailing for S$499 on 14 November 2020, though keen individuals can start placing their pre-orders from now to 13 November – those who do so via Shopee are privy to a complementary realme Watch.
Next on the list is the realme Watch S, the successor to the aforementioned realme Watch. The company’s first smartwatch with a round dial, it boasts a 157% larger display area, measures 3.3cm in circumference, and comes decked out in Corning Gorilla Class 3. As with most smartwatches, it offers health monitoring features like a sleep monitor, step tracker, and hydration reminder, alongside 16 sports modes and IP68 water and dust resistance. Battery life is set to last for 15 days, after which users will have to juice it up through magnetic charging technology. The Watch S will be drop on 7 November at the price of S$199.
Rounding off the reveal party is the Buds Wireless Pro – another first for the realme team. The wireless headphones sport active noise cancellation (ANC) technology up to 35db, Bluetooth 5.0 support, and a newly-added Transparency Mode that allows users to tailor their own listening experience. Other noteworthy features include a 16-hour battery life, an IPX4 water-resistance rating, and a 119ms latency for reduced, well, latency during gaming sessions. Slated for a 7 November launch as well, the Buds Wireless Pro will be retailing for S$129 in the Party Yellow colour variant.
All three products will be available islandwide at all authorised platforms upon launch, including realme’s official flagship store on Shopee and Lazada, where users can look forward to more affordable choices.
