The affordable smartphone comes with good hardware on board, a near full screen display with a waterdrop style notch, dual rear cameras and more. One of the highlights of the camera is the Nightscape mode for low-light photography.
Realme is the first smartphone manufacturer to include such a feature in the under Rs 9,000 price segment.

Madhav Sheth, CEO, Realme India also confirmed that older Realme smartphones will be updated with the Nightscape feature, AndroidAuthority reports.
