“After witnessing the increasing demand for 5G smartphones and to match Realme’s strategy as a 5G smartphone leader, we’ve decided to work on another 5G version. So now, we will have Realme Narzo 30 4G and Narzo 30 5G launch together very soon,” said Sheth on a recent episode of AskMadhav on YouTube.

Realme Narzo 30 to get 4G and 5G variants
While the variants have been confirmed, Sheth does not reveal any detail on the chipset of choice for either version. There are chances that Realme could rely on the MediaTek Dimensity 800U chipset from the Narzo 30 Pro. To keep the price in check, Realme could compromise with the display and battery charging speeds. The company could also bring one of Qualcomm’s entry-level 5G chip.

Initially, the company planned the Narzo 30 in 4G only. However, just before the launch, the company decided to include a 5G variant as well, based on increasing demand. The Narzo 30 Pro is currently the most affordable 5G smartphone you can buy in India.
Sheth also confirmed that the Realme UI 2.0 update with Android 11 will start seeding to the Narzo 30A and Narzo 30 Pro in beta by the third quarter of 2021. The Narzo 30 series launched with Android 10-based Realme UI last year.
Currently, Realme is all focused on launching the Realme 8 series globally. Leaks and speculations have so far suggested a Realme 8 and Realme 8 Pro launching next week. Realme itself has confirmed a 108-megapixel main camera sensor on the Realme 8 Pro. Apart from the new design theme, the Realme 8 Pro is also confirmed to feature an AMOLED display, 50W fast charging, and an in-display fingerprint sensor.
The Realme 8 Pro is expected to go against the recently launched Redmi Note 10 Pro Max, which also happens to have a 108-megapixel main camera. The Redmi Note 10 Pro Max starts at Rs 18,999 in India and we expect the Realme 8 Pro to have a similar starting price tag.
