Following the recent launch of the Realme 5, Realme has unveiled yet another device for the Malaysian audience—this time one with a whopper of a camera. The Realme XT, essentially an “extended” version of the Realme 5 Pro, brings along several upgrades including a 64MP quad-camera system.
Right off the bat, the XT bears a striking resemblance to its siblings, the Realme 5 and Realme 5 Pro.
The device gets a 6.4-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED Display and includes an in-display fingerprint scanner.
Under the hood, it’s powered by the familiar 10nm oct-core Snapdragon 712 AIE processor, paired with a generous 8GB RAM and 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage. You’ll need plenty of storage for the 64MP high-resolution photos you’ll be taking, so if you do fill up the 128GB of onboard storage, feel free to add more via microSD.
For shooters, the Realme XT comes with a quad-cam system headlined by the 64MP GW1 sensor with an f/1.8 lens. This is flanked by an 8MP ulta-wide-angle camera, 2MP macro and 2MP depth sensor. Realme is second only to Xiaomi in introducing a 64MP smartphone camera to the Malaysian market.
On the front, an inconspicuous notch on the display houses a 16MP f/2.0 selfie shooter.
Keeping things going all day is a large 4,000mAh battery that supports 20W VOOC Flash Charge 3.0 and charges up via USB-C.
Realme claims the 20W charger will get the phone from 0-100 percent in 80 minutes. That’s mighty impressive.
In case you were wondering, the Realme XT does have a 3.5mm headphone jack and it runs Android 9 Pie out-of-the-box with ColorOS 6 on top.

The Realme XT is priced at MYR1,399 and it’s offered in just one configuration—8GB RAM + 128GB of storage. It comes in two colour options—Pearl White and Pearl Blue.
