The Realme Narzo 20 debuted for the Indian market back in September. That means we already know what to expect from the company’s upcoming smartphone release in the country, provided the specs remain unchanged. Overall, the specs sheet reads like yet another budget Realme that offers reasonably good performance and extra-long battery life.
The Narzo 20 is headlined by a MediaTek Helio G85 chipset coupled with 4GB RAM and 64GB or 128GB of expandable storage via a dedicated card slot. According to Realme, the MediaTek G85, which features an octa-core processor and Mali-G52 MC2 graphics, scores over 200,000 points in the Antutu benchmark app.
The handset also has a 6,000mAh battery that can charge up to 18 watts over USB-C and is rated to last 45 days on standby. The rear-facing setup includes triple cameras, consisting of a 48-megapixel primary sensor, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens, and a dedicated macro shooter with a fixed focal distance of 4cm. The 8-megapixel selfie camera sits in a waterdrop notch along the top bezel.
The Narzo 20 runs Realme UI on top of Android 10, which is expected. What we don’t know at the moment is the local price. In India, the phone costs ₹10,499 (around $141 or P6,824) for 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, while the 128GB option is priced at ₹11,499 ($155 or P7,473).
