There are two colour options here as well namely, Comet Blue and Comet White. The Realme 6 will be available for purchase starting March 11.
Both the phones have dual-SIM (Nano) support and run Realme UI, based on Android 10. The Realme 6 Pro has a 6.6-inch full-HD+ (1,080x2,400 pixels) Ultra Smooth display with 90Hz refresh rate, and 20:9 aspect ratio. The Chinese company claims it has a 90.6 percent screen-to-body ratio. It is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The Realme 6, on the other hand, has a slightly smaller 6.5-inch full-HD+ (1,080x2,400 pixels) Ultra Smooth display with the same refresh rate and aspect ratio, but a 90.5 percent screen-to-body ratio. It is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
Under the hood, the Pro variant has the octa-core Snapdragon 720G SoC. The graphics are handled by the Adreno 618 GPU and the Realme 6 Pro has up to 8GB of LPDDR4x dual-channel RAM. The non-Pro variant comes with octa-core MediaTek Helio G90T SoC. The Realme 6 is available in up to 8GB RAM LPDDR4x quad-channel RAM configuration.
In the realm of optics, both the Realme 6 Pro and the Realme 6 have quad camera setups on the back. The former has a 64-megapixel primary shooter with f/1.8 aperture. Additionally, you will get an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens with f/2.3 aperture, a 12-megapixel telephoto shooter with f/2.5 aperture, and lastly a 2-megapixel macro shooter with f/2.4 aperture. The primary, secondary, and quaternary cameras on the Realme 6 are the same as its older sibling. The only difference is that the third sensor is a 2-megapixel f/2.4 lens for portrait shots.
The Realme 6 Pro has two selfie cameras. One of them is a 16-megapixel primary shooter with f/2.0 aperture and the other is an 8-megapixel sensor with an ultra-wide-angle f/2.2 lens which gives a field-of-view (FoV) of 105 degrees. On the other hand, the Realme 6 has a single selfie camera that comes with 16-megapixel resolution and f/2.0 aperture.
For storing all your data, both the Realme 6 Pro and the Realme 6 come with 64GB and 128GB of UFS 2.1 onboard storage options, which are expandable via microSD card (up to 256GB) through a dedicated slot. For connectivity, the Realme 6 Pro includes 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth v5.1, GPS/A-GPS, NavIC, and a USB Type-C port. The connectivity options on the Realme 6 are mostly the same as the Pro variant with two key differences, Bluetooth v5.0 instead of v5.1 and no NavIC support. Both phones have the same sensors that include an accelerometer, ambient light sensor, magnetometer, and a proximity sensor.
