Update (May 8): Realme's Madhav Sheth confirmed the capabilities of the Realme X3.
The Realme X3 SuperZoom (opens in new tab)is the company's upcoming much-awaited affordable flagship, with a big emphasis on photography. Staying true to its name, it could sport a periscopic camera with up to 60x zoom.
As per a leakster, the Realme X3 SuperZoom could have zooming capabilities to hit 60x. This is obviously a hybrid zoom, with only the initial bit being optical. However, this could imply that it will opt for a periscopic (opens in new tab)camera with folded optics to be able to zoom that far. A special "Starry mode" is also mentioned to shoot the Milky Way Galaxy, a feat that even full-fledged cameras struggle with.

Periscope zoom cameras were usually found only on premium smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra and Huawei’s P30 Pro, among others. However, now mid-tier devices like the Realme X3 SuperZoom and the Xiaomi Mi 10 Youth 5G are offering it much to the delight of consumers looking to buy an affordable ultra zoom capable smartphone .
As per recently revealed benchmark scores and certifications, the device is likely to be powered by last year’s Snapdragon 855+ chipset and a massive 12GB of RAM.
The smartphone is expected to come with a 4,200mAh battery with 30W fast charging capability.
While the pricing is not yet revealed, it is safe to assume that it would be ‘competitively’ priced. Apart from the Realme X3 SuperZoom (opens in new tab), the company is rumored to launch a Realme X3 and an X3 Pro variant as well.
