Oppo is further taking the fight to Xiaomi’s budget Redmi brand with a fairly obvious copy of its own, Realme. The first phone in the series, Readme1, dutifully ticks all the important boxes, while also keeping an affordable price-tag.

Design and Display

Oppo Realme 1 front and back

The design is nothing much to write home about, except that it’ll come in Black and Red.

The biggest design quirk is the large 6” 18:9 display itself, which comes with Full HD+ resolution and a notch, quite a treat for the price that is being asked. It doesn’t have a fingerprint sensor, unfortunately, however, it does have face unlock. More on that later.

Internals and Storage

Under the hood, you get MediaTek’s Helio P60 octa-core processor.

The phone comes in three RAM and storage versions, with 3, 4 and 6 GB paired with 32, 64 and 128 GB storage, each. Dual-SIM support is also available, alongside a microSD slot, which takes the slot count to 3.

Camera(s)

The back camera has a solitary 13 MP lens, with a LED Flash. The front features with an 8 MP lens, with f/2.2 aperture, and AI-based face unlock which can detect 296-points on your base to differentiate users based on their gender and skin color.

Battery

The battery capacity of the phone is set at 3410 mAh, likely missing out on fast-charging.

The pricing of the phone is set at $130 for the 3 GB version, $160 for 4 GB, and around $200 for the 6 GB version. It’ll go on sale later this month.
