As we speak, we get to spend a while with the brand new Realme Narzo 20A, rounding out the Realme Narzo 20 household. We have already talked about this telephone’s siblings, the Narzo 20 and Narzo 20 Professional, which value extra and are positioned larger. This sequence is supposed to prioritise processor energy particularly for gaming, so the Narzo 20A which begins at Rs. 8,499 may very well be fairly a compelling choice. This mannequin undercuts the Narzo 10A by Rs. 500 and likewise probably clashes with the Realme C12.
Whereas the Narzo 20 (Evaluation) appears to be like practically an identical to the Realme C15 (Evaluation) and the Narzo 20 Professional shares a lot of its design with the Realme 7 (Evaluation), what now we have with the Narzo 20A is the Narzo 10A (Evaluation) another time… which is itself a refreshed Realme C3 (Evaluation). I suppose we actually should not be stunned by this recycling and duplication anymore, but it surely does create a world of confusion.
The brand new Narzo 20A has the identical V-shaped, ridged “Victory design” sample on the rear as its siblings. The plastic shell is matte and you’ll see a slight color shift as you tilt the telephone. You get the identical Victory Blue and Glory Silver color choices as with the Narzo 20. The digital camera module on the rear is vertical, which is the primary design ingredient separating the 2 fashions. You will additionally discover that the Narzo 20A is a bit slimmer and lighter because it has a smaller battery.
Externally, there’s nothing new or revolutionary in regards to the Narzo 20A. You get a 6.5-inch HD+ 720×1600-pixel display with rounded corners, a waterdrop digital camera notch, and comparatively thick borders.
There’s an old-style Micro-USB port on the underside, which is considerably disappointing to see, with a 3.5mm audio jack and speaker to both aspect of it. The facility button is on the fitting and quantity buttons are on the left, with a fingerprint sensor on the again. The whole lot is inside attain.
What does stand out is using a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor. It is a first for the Narzo sequence, which has thus far used solely MediaTek’s G-series processors. Contemplating that the Nokia 5.3 (Evaluation) with the identical processor begins at Rs. 13,999 and Realme’s personal Realme 5 (Evaluation) was launched at Rs. 9,999 simply over a yr in the past, that is wanting prefer it may very well be good worth for cash – however there are certain to be compromises elsewhere.
You get both 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage for Rs. 8,499, or 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage for Rs. 9,499. There are two Nano-SIM slots and a separate microSD slot for storage enlargement. You get 10W charging for the 5000mAh battery. Different specs embrace Wi-Fi n, Bluetooth 4.2, and GPS.
As for cameras, some folks may be upset. Realme does declare that the Narzo 20A has three cameras, which is a promoting level, however two of them are principally fillers on the spec sheet. There’s the first 12-megapixel digital camera which ought to be of use, however the different two are 2-megapixel cameras described as “retro lens” and “B&W lens” that are used just for particular filter results. You do not get a wide-angle or macro digital camera, or perhaps a depth sensor, so “triple digital camera” may not imply what you assume it does. That mentioned, the entrance 8-megapixel digital camera appears enough. I will be testing all of those to guage picture high quality in varied situations very quickly.
True to its positioning, the Narzo 20A prioritises CPU efficiency and there is little or no else to say in regards to the spec sheet. It will likely be attention-grabbing to see how the Qualcomm processor and its built-in GPU carry out, relative to the Narzo 20 and even the Narzo 10A. Realme has made navigating its product stack very troublesome but it surely’s doable that there are consumers for whom this precise mixture of specs is good.
For those who’re confused about Realme’s lineup, keep tuned to Devices 360. A full overview of the Narzo 20A, with particulars of its gaming efficiency, normal utilization, digital camera high quality, battery life, software program, and rather more, is arising very quickly.
