Design and Display
The Realme Narzo 30 Pro’s design takes cues from its predecessor. Realme didn’t really do much in the area of design modification. Looking on the bright side of things, enthusiats are still being served with a top-notch design. However, enthusiats seeking a design makeover may not really be satisfied with this design.
Realme has for a while now featured glossy and gradient rear cover design on many of her smartphones. Its basically difficult to find a recently released Realme phone with a glossy/gradient design.
The Narzo 30 pro doesn’t fall back on the trend, as its rear cover bears a gradient design, brandishing two shades of a colour. Speaking of colours, the options available on the device include Sword Black and Blade Silver.
The rear camera module design is one of the differentiating factors you can use to tell the difference between it and the Narzo 20 Pro. Here Realme opted for a broader camera module with three cameras and an LED flash.
Moving upfront, we have a 6.5-inch display with a resolution of 1080 x 2400, a density of 405 PPI, which is basically the same size as the display on the Narzo 20 Pro. However, it has a density of 405 PPI. However, enthusiasts are being served with a higher refresh rate at 120Hz as opposed to 90Hz on the Narzo 20 Pro.
The cameras aren’t really an improvement, they are basically a reminiscence of the ones on its predecessor. It is evident in both the rear and front setup.
The rear camera setup features triple cameras as opposed to the quad cameras, this is as a result of the absence of the depth camera on the Narzo 20 Pro. However, it features a 48MP wide camera with an aperture of f/1.8, an 8MP ultrawide camera with an aperture of f/2.3 and a 119˚ field of view.
The last member in the rear camera setup is a 2MP macro camera with an aperture of f/2.4. This rear camera setup is capable of shooting videos up to 4k @ 30fps. Do well to check out the specs sheet outlined below, for info on the other video recording modes.
Moving upfront, we have a single 16MP camera with an aperture of f/2.1. This camera can record videos up to 1080p @ 30fps.
Hardware and Software
Having a more capable processor, is where the Realme Narzo 30 Pro shines as a predecessor, its legit the major upgrade.
Onboard we have an octa-core MediaTek 800U 5G processor with a 7nm process, as opposed to the less premium MediaTek Helio G95 processor on its predcessor.
The other performance facilitators include a Mali-G57 MC3 GPU, option for either 6GB or 8GB RAM, 64GB or 128GB of internal storage and a non-removable 5000mAh Li-Po battery. Enthusiasts will also have the luxury of a 30W Dart charge mechanism, which is a drop from the 65W mechanism on the Narzo 20 Pro.
On the software side, Realme Narzo 30 Pro runs Realme’s interface ontop of the Android 10 operating system.
The Realme Narzo 30 Pro features a 3.5mm headphone jack, a USB Type-C port. It also features WiFi and Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity.
Internet connectivity is capped at 5G, which means enthusiats can utilize 5G connectivity for downloads, streaming and uploads.
