Just as Xiaomi launched its brand new Mi 10 5G smartphone in India, Realme India's CEO Madhav Sheth took to Twitter to tease the Realme X3. The Realme X3 has leaked multiple times in the past suggesting key specifications. But this is the first time someone from Realme has acknowledged its existence while teasing its 60x Zoom capability along with Starry Mode. While there is no announcement or a launch date yet, it won't be surprising if the launch is nearby.
Realme India CEO Madhav Sheth tweeted out a photo clicked from the Realme X3 using 60x Zoom and Starry Mode. The executive further urged his followers to take up the challenge and click a better photo with their smartphones.
