The Realme X phones will be on sale on Realme's website and several other Chinese e-commerce sites. What does come as a bit of a freaky surprise is that the Realme X has two special editions based on vegetables. On the front, a pop-up 16MP camera is present with Sony IMX471 sensor. Let's check out the specifications of the smartphones. The notchless design and minimal bezels gives it an impressive 91.2 percent screen to body ratio. The highlight here, however, is the 16MP (f/2.0) pop-up selfie camera that can also be used for Face Unlock. With bloatware colorOS 6 over Android 9 Pie, it has Dolby Atmos feature and supports VOOC 3.0 charging for its 20W 3765mAh battery.

The flagship device comes with a notch-less display and boats in-display fingerprint sensor. The phone also features OPPO's new AI assistant Breeno along with USB Type-C port and a 3.5mm audio jack. The phone has a 6.53-inch Full HD+ 1080p AMOLED display. The Realme X comes with up to 8GB RAM and up to 128GB of internal storage. The phone fits comfortably in the palm due to curved back panel and rounded edges.

Fingers crossed we get the onion and garlic Realme X models outside of China. The selfie shooter is a 16-megapixel elevating camera that can apparently be launched in just 0.74 seconds and offers Beauty mode and Portrait mode too.

The smartphone comes with 3,765mAh battery, and Oppo's VOOC 3.0 fast charging.

"Realme X also supports Nightscape based on RAW format and Chroma Boost modes, for images with greater depth and vitality", the company said in a statement. The device comes in Nitro Blue and Lightning Purple colors and will be available soon. Bokeh effect created by Realme X's software algorithms seems very natural. The only difference you will find is the unique Onion and White Garlic gradient color and the signature at its back from Design Master, Naoto Naoto. In fact, the Realme X has better specs than the previous models. For 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage the Realme X sells at $220, the 6GB/64GB configuration costs $230 and the 8GB/128GB variant is priced at $260. Furthermore, the price of the Realme X in India could be close to China pricing.

Though the company hasn't revealed the exact launch date of the smartphone, it is expected to make its debut soon.
