Seven months since its inception, Oppo’s independent sub-brand, RealMe has today announced its fifth phone. The new RealMe U1 offers the majority of features you will find on the competition. But the ones which RealMe hopes will drive its sales are the 25-megapixel selfie camera and the fact that it’s the first smartphone to be powered by a MediaTek Helio P70.

The RealMe U1 comes with a 6.3-inch 1080p screen which has a tiny notch at the top and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. Plus, there’s also a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 3. It runs on MediaTek’s latest MediaTek P70 octa-core chipset, up to 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of onboard storage which is expandable with a MicroSD card. In addition, the RealMe U1 features a large 3500mAh battery which is not compatible with quick charging.

The RealMe U1 has two cameras on the rear — a primary 13-megapixel snapper with an aperture of f/2.2 and another 2-megapixel sensor for depth-sensing. On the front, you will find a 25-megapixel selfie camera which has an aperture of f/2.0. Both the front and rear setups offer all the standard features such as HDR, Portrait Mode, Beauty Mode, and more.

Out of the box, the RealMe U1 ships with Android 8.1 which is layered by the company’s own ColorOS 5.2 skin on top. It supports Dual 4G VoLTE as well and rocks a fingerprint reader on the back. The RealMe U1 will be available in a bunch of bright, sparkling color options — Black, Gold, and Blue.

The RealMe U1 will be exclusively available on Amazon starting December 5th for Rs 11,999 for 3GB, 32GB storage and Rs 14,4999 for the 4GB, 32GB variant.
