On the heels of the announcement of Realme XT in India on Friday, Realme Mobiles teased their next smartphone due out in December. Realme XT 730G was introduced as the company's gaming-centric offering and will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G. During the launch event, there wasn't any mention of the much-rumored Realme XT Pro.

Realme CEO Madhav Sheth stated that “this version will be named as Realme XT 730G. There will be many more surprises along with 730G in December.” Well, that’s as close as a confirmation as we can get about the upcoming phone. 

Realme XT 730G will feature a bunch of updates to the regular XT variant with quad cameras of the back. Let’s take a look at what we know about the XT 730G.

Realme XT 730G specifications

Realme revealed two significant changes to the Realme XT which will be released as XT 730G. The first is an upgrade to Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G from Snapdragon 712 chipset and support for 30W VOOC Flash Charge fast-charging solution. The regular variant supports 20W.

Other than that, the XT 730G retains all the other hardware from the regular version. It will have the same 3D glass design with 64MP primary camera, Super AMOLED screen with an in-display fingerprint sensor and 4,000mAh battery.

Many, included us, speculated that it will be released as the Realme XT Pro alongside the XT, however, the company has now clarified that it will be called Realme XT 730G.
