Realme 10 Pro Plus is the biggest USP with a curved AMOLED screen. Realme has launched two new affordable mid-range smartphones in the Indian market. Those two smartphones are Realme10 pro plus and Realme 10 pro. The Realme 10 Pro Plus is naturally a higher-end model whose ticket to fame is its tall, expansive curved AMOLED display. Other conveniences include the new MediaTek Dimensity 1080 chip and 67W fast charging. Here’s a quick guide to the Realme 10 Pro Plus, its feature set, best specs, and more.
Realme 10 Pro Plus launched
Right out of the gate, the biggest USP of the Realme 10 Pro Plus is its curved AMOLED screen. Realme goes so far as to claim to offer the first curved “flagship” display in the segment with virtually non-existent side (1.41mm) and bottom (2.3mm) bezels. A small cutout in the middle of this display houses a 16MP selfie camera that can record up to 1080p@30fps video. Biometrics is handled by the in-display fingerprint reader, which works well 9 out of 10 times.
The display also has some top-shelf specs
It’s 6.7 inches with a 1080p resolution, a fast 120Hz refresh rate, and a 360Hz touch sampling rate. Brightness can reach up to 960 nits and there’s support for HDR10+ playback, although like most Realme phones it doesn’t work in apps like Netflix. The screen is also certified by TÜV Rheinland for flicker-free parameters and low blue light emission. 2160Hz PWM dimming completes the package.
Realme has paired this premium display with a symmetrical plastic back and depending on your chosen color, you can get it in either glossy or matte finishes. The cameras are placed vertically. The overall design is clean and minimal. As is usual with most Realme phones, the Realme 10 Pro Plus is also very thin and light, measuring just 7.78mm and weighing 173g.
Under the hood, you get a Density 1080 chip. It’s basically a rebadged Dimensity 920 with a slightly increased core speed. Performance is comparable to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G. Realme pairs it with 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 128GB of UFS2.2 storage. There is support for expansion with a micro-SD card
Realme 10 Pro Plus is the first Realme phone to roll out Realme UI 4.0 out of the box
This is based on Android 13. More interestingly, though, Realme UI 4.0 is virtually indistinguishable from ColorOS 13 right from how it looks to how things work on the phone at a basic level, to say the least. There are a lot of unwanted apps out there and Realme also shows you banner ads to push you towards new ones every time you install an app from the Google Play Store, something Xiaomi’s Redmi is also known to do in its phones.
When it comes to cameras, there are three in the model. There is a 108MP main (Samsung HM6), an 8MP ultra-wide, and a 2MP macro sensor. Its predecessor, the Realme 9 Pro Plus, had an excellent 50MP Sony IMX 766 with optical image stabilization, making it one of the best low-light camera phones in its segment. while looking like a drop in comparison, still holds huge promise, so be sure to check out our full review for more details.
Realme 10 Pro Plus comes with a 5,000mAh battery and supports 67W SuperVOOC charging
Eagle-eyed readers will quickly notice the missing “SuperDart” that was present in the previous generation, so that’s another overlap (besides the software) with the Oppo. Battery life is good and the phone charges from 0-100% in about 40 minutes.
This smartphone price in India starts at Rs 24,999 for the 6GB RAM and 128GB storage version. The 8GB RAM and 128GB storage model will set you back Rs 25,999. Realme has once again tried to give buyers more value for money and it is evident from the start.
