Realme 3 Pro is set to be unveiled on April 22 in India, but ahead of the launch, Realme's CEO has announced that the blind orders for the phone will go live on April 19 on the Realme website. Potential buyers won't have to pay for the Realme 3 Pro, instead, they can simply register and get a chance to win an R-pass that will help them purchase the Realme 3 Pro irrespective of the rush during the flash sales. Moreover, the microsite for the Realme 3 Pro has gone live on e-retailer Flipkart, hinting at fast charging support.
Realme CEO, Madhav Sheth, on Tuesday tweeted that blind orders for the Realme 3 Pro will kick off starting April 19 on the official Realme website. As for what is a blind order, he clarified in a subsequent tweet that a blind order will allow the interested buyers to register for the Realme 3 Pro on the company's official website without having to pay for it, and get a chance to win an R-pass. It is being called blind as the consumers won't know the specifications or even the price of the phone. However, the company is giving away only 5,000 R-passes that will ensure that the lucky winners can purchase the device upon its launch and avoid the hassle of flash sales.
Moreover, the Realme 3 Pro's landing page has gone live on Flipkart and it highlights a key feature of the upcoming smartphone – fast charging support. Realme's CEO had also recently tweeted that the Realme 3 Pro will provide 5 hours of talk time with just 10 minutes of charging, and the same trait is also being promoted on the device's landing page on Flipkart. As per a recent leak, the Realme 3 Pro will pack a 3,960mAh battery, but there is no word on the standard of fast charging it supports.
As for the rest of the specifications, the phone is said to come with a 6.3-inch full-HD display, ColorOS 6.0, and the Snapdragon 710 SoC paired with 6GB of RAM. The company had also recently teased the Realme 3 Pro's imaging capabilities, especially low-light photography, but the resolution of the cameras and related features are not known as of now. We'll get to know more when Realme officially launches the Realme 3 Pro at an event on April 22 that kicks off at 12:30pm IST.
