Oppo has launched the Realme smartphone brand in India. The Realme 1 comes with a 6-inch FHD+ display with less than 2mm thin bezels around. It is powered by the MediaTek Helio P60 processor with up to 6GB RAM running Android 8.1 Oreo with ColorOS on top.

On the back, you get a 13-megapixel camera with LED flash and an 8-megapixel f/2.2 camera up front. Now, one thing that you don't find on the phone is a fingerprint sensor. It does have face-unlock though, which, as you may know, is not as secure.

Similar to other Oppo smartphones, there's face beauty mode, AI stickers and AI real selfie mode which improves your selfies by recognizing various points on your face. Then it makes adjustments based on your sex, age, skin color, tone to get the right image.

The Realme 1 comes with a glossy plastic back with an embedded asymmetrical design which makes it look like a diamond pattern on the back. It has dedicated dual SIM slots and a separate microSD card slot to go with it. It supports 4G and VoLTE on both SIM cards and you have fast smart switching available as well.

All this is powered by a 3410 mAH battery which is enough for a single day's worth of use. The phone is said to understand your app usage behavior over time and close inactive apps to save battery life.
