After creating a formidable space in the India smartphone market, Chinese smartphone manufacturer Realme is looking to disrupt the mid-price segment further, and has launched two smartphones — Realme 6 and 6 Pro — with the company’s own user interface based on Android 10 software.


The device has been priced at Rs. 16,999 for the 6GB RAM + 64GB storage variant, 6GB RAM + 128GB storage option is priced at Rs. 17,999 and the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage option comes for Rs 18,999.

The smartphone comes in two colours: Lightning Blue and Lightning Orange. Both the colours look good, but blue is the one we reviewed.
The phone is wrapped in Gorilla Glass 5, both on the front and back.

Let us see how it fares.

Realme 6 Pro features a 6.6-inch LCD display with a dual hole-punch cutout, which gives the device a fresh look.

Watching videos and playing games on this Realme phone was good, thanks to the big AMOLED display with 90hz screen refresh rate and proper placement of front camera.

The power button is placed at the right side and has been flattened in order to accommodate a fingerprint sensor.

The SIM tray has slots for two nano-SIMs and a microSD card, along with volume rockers which are are placed on the left.

Meanwhile, the bottom edge of the phone has a single speaker, a USB-C port, as well as a headphone jack.

There is a quad rear camera setup that includes a 64MP Samsung GW1 primary sensor with an f/1.8 lens.

The camera setup also has an 8MP ultra-wide-angle shooter with an f/2.3 aperture, 12MP telephoto shooter with an f/2.5 aperture, and a 2MP macro shooter with an f/2.4 aperture.

The combination of sensors captured decent photos — pretty good via an under Rs 20,000 smartphone.

At night, we found the primary camera excellent in artificial lights. Night Mode was surprisingly effective and helped balance the brightness.

For selfies and video chat, the Realme 6 Pro comes with the dual hole-punch selfie camera setup that consists of a 16MP Sony IMX471 primary sensor with an f/2.0 lens and an 8MP secondary sensor with an ultra-wide-angle f/2.2 lens that has a field-of-view (FoV) of 105 degrees.

The front camera is fairly good — in daytime as well as at night — with proper detailing and portrait shots had nicely blurred backgrounds.

The Realme 6 Pro can shoot videos at up to 4K, but only at 30fps and video shot also looked fine, with good stabilisation.

The phone packs Octa-core Snapdragon 720G SoC, along with Adreno 618 GPU and up to 8GB of LPDDR4x dual-channel RAM.

Since Snapdragon 720G SoC is a newer chip, it also has new features such as support for Bluetooth 5.1, NavIC satellite navigation, and a more power-efficient Sensing Hub.

The device was powerful enough to handle anything from basic calls to heavy gaming without any trouble. Apart from PUBG, we also played ‘Call of Duty’ on high settings without any lag.

Additionally, the device runs Android 10 OS and the OS has Realme UI customization over it.

The 4,300 mAh battery capacity on the Realme 6 Pro is pretty standard.
The device also has 30W fast VOOC 4.0 fast charging.

Conclusion: With good camera and best-in-class performance, Realme 6 Pro is one of the best smartphones in mid-price segment and a tough challenger for Redmi Note 9 Pro and Note 9 Pro Max. (IANS)

Udham Singh was a political activist who killed Michael O'Dwyer, the colonial official responsible for the brutal Jallianwala Bagh massacre.

Udham Singh was born on 26 December 1899 in Sunam, Sangrur district of Punjab, India. He belonged to Kamboj family of Jammu. Singh's mother died when he was an infant and his father, who was a farmer and also worked as the railway crossing watchman in the village of Upalli, died after some years. After his parents died, Udham Singh and his brother, Mukta Singh, were taken in by the Central Khalsa Orphanage Putlighar in Amritsar.

On 13 April 1919, over twenty thousand unarmed People assembled in Jallianwala Bagh, Amritsar, to celebrate the important Hindu and Sikh festival of Baisakhi. At the same time, they peacefully protested against the arrest of local leaders of the Indian National Congress including Satyapal and Saifuddin Kitchlew by the British. Only then, troops under the command of Colonel Reginald Dyer opened fire on the crowd, killing thousands of innocents. Singh along his friends were present there as they were serving water in the programme.
