Earlier, Realme announced the Realme C11 in Malaysia. It’s one of the first phones on the market to launch with MediaTek’s Helio G35 processor, joining the Redmi 9C, which also debuted today, June 30.

But that’s not all the good news from Realme’s side of things. The former OPPO sub-brand has revealed that the Realme X3 SuperZoom will be launched in the Philippines July 9.
The X3 SuperZoom, which was unveiled in Europe last month, is a high-end sub-flagship that boasts a quad-sensor module on the back. The system includes a periscope telephoto lens that can do up to 60x zoom with software enhancement, as well as 5x optical zoom over a 64-megapixel primary camera.

The quad array is filled out by dedicated lenses for ultra wide and macro, but make no mistake: This is the most powerful camera system we’ve seen on a Realme phone to date.
Also joining the specs list is a 6.6-inch dual punch-hole LCD with 1080p resolution and a 120Hz screen refresh rate, which is more than what the Realme 6 and Realme 6 Pro offer. Notably, the X3 SuperZoom is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus chipset, paired with 12GB LPDDR4X RAM and 256GB of fast UFS 3.0 storage.
As expected, the phone runs Android 10-based Realme UI out of the box and ships with a USB-C fast charger — a 30-watt power supply using the company’s Dart fast-charging technology in this case.

Realme Philippines has yet to reveal the price of the device, so you’ll just have to wait until later next week for the pricing and availability details.
In Europe, the Realme X3 SuperZoom costs €499 (around P27,917 or $560) and comes in two colors: Arctic White and Glacier Blue. Prices of electronics in European countries tend to be higher than those on the local market, so we expect the sub-flagship to sell for around P23,000 ($462).
