Good news: The Realme 3, which we recently reviewed and found to be one of the best budget options in the Philippines, is headed to physical stores nationwide.

(Update, April 3: We just published our comparison between the Realme 3 and a Galaxy phone! Read Realme 3 vs Samsung Galaxy M20: Which phone is better?)

In fact, preorders have gone live offline, with the claiming period set from April 6 onward for the 4/64GB variant, while the 3/64GB model will be ready for pickup starting April 13th. Do note that the 3/3GB Realme 3 remains an online exclusive sold on Shopee Philippines. Your only option is the online retailer, if that’s what you’re after.

Both the 3/64GB and 4/64GB storage versions of the Realme 3 are available for purchase at retail for P7,990 (about $152) and P9,990 ($190), respectively. But if you buy the phone during the presale event, you’ll receive a gift bundle worth P1,299 ($25). A minimum deposit of P500 ($10) is required. You have two colors to choose from — Radiant Blue and Dynamic Black.

To recap, the Realme 3 features a 6.22-inch, 1,520 x 720 LCD screen with a waterdrop notch on the front for the 13-megapixel selfie camera and dual cameras at the back. It also gets a 4,230mAh battery for all-day battery life, with support for 10-watt fast charging thrown in to make your life easier. It runs Color OS 6 on top of Android 9.0 Pie on a MediaTek Helio P60 processor that can handle both serious computing tasks and gaming.

But the real surprise here is Realme’s Nightscape mode, which takes a longer exposure than normal in an attempt to capture more light and produce a brighter picture with higher dynamic range. It works really well. It’s likely you’ll end up using it a lot, and you’re gonna love it. In our review, we concluded that “The Realme 3 aligns with almost everything you want in your next device without draining your wallet in the process.”
