The new Narzo phones have landed. The Realme Narzo 30 Pro 5G and Realme Narzo 30A have debuted in India, succeeding a lineup that saw one of the units — the Realme Narzo 20 — launching in the Philippines late last year.
(Update, May 18: The Realme Narzo 30 is official, about three months after the Narzo 30A and Narzo 30 Pro 5G were launched! Price and specs here.)
(Update, March 26: Is the Realme Narzo 30A the #LimitlessGamingMonster that it claims to be? Check out our review here!)
(Update: The Realme Narzo 30A is launching in the Philippines March 25, and we already have a unit. Read our first impressions or hands-on review here!)
And just as expected, we’re looking at devices that are easy on the budget. Available starting March 4, the Pro variant’s 6GB/64GB and 8GB/128GB models are priced at ₹16,999 (roughly P11,413 or $235) and ₹19,999 (P13,427 or $276), respectively, making 5G more accessible to consumers. It’s the first 5G-ready handset in the Narzo series.
Support for the new generation of mobile network comes courtesy of MediaTek’s Dimensity 800U, the same chip inside Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 9T 5G, which we reviewed weeks ago.
The Realme Narzo 30 Pro 5G also boasts a 6.5-inch screen with a high, 120Hz refresh rate; a 5,000mAh battery with support for 30 watts of fast charging; a 48-megapixel triple rear camera; and a 16-megapixel selfie shooter.

The Realme 30A, on the other hand, is priced at ₹8,999 (P6,041 or $124) for the unit with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage and ₹9,999 (P6,715 or $138) for the version with a higher, 4GB/64GB memory configuration. It will go on sale beginning March 5.
The device uses Helio G85, the same processor that powers the Narzo 20, and features a 6.5-inch display with a 60Hz refresh rate; a 6,000mAh battery; 18-watt Quick Charge technology; and a 13-megapixel dual camera on the back and an 8-megapixel one on the front.
