Realme plans on launching a new smartphone under the U series that will launch on 28th November 2018. This will be the first smartphone powered by the latest MediaTek Helio P70 processor that will be making its way to India. The phone will be an Amazon exclusive and the company has teased the Realme U1 as a 'SelfiePro' device, which means we could expect a good front-facing camera.
Similar to the Realme 2 Pro notch display, the upcoming Realme U1 will come with a Dewdrop notch as well and could feature a higher screen to body ratio, with minimal bezels.
With the same TSMC’s 12nm FinFET technology like the predecessor, the MediaTek Helio P70 processor will feature multi-core APU operating at up to 525 MHz that will offer a faster and more efficient AI-processing that would be 10-30 per cent more than the previous Helio P60 processor.
This new processor is said to offer better camera features, higher performance, quick connectivity and more power efficiency. According to the dedicated Amazon India page of Realme U1, the phone is expected to come with an anti-blooming engine, high-resolution depth engine, faster multi-frame noise reduction shot and an accurate AI scene detection.
It will be interesting to see, how the company prices the new Realme U1, considering it launched the Realme 2 Pro with a starting price of Rs 13,990. Although the company recently hiked the prices of some of its phones, we will have to wait and watch if the weakening rupee affects the price of the Realme U1 as well.
