Right now, OnePlus 7 Pro and Nubia Red Magic 3 are the only handsets offering 90Hz refresh rate for displays. Both Google Pixel 4 series and OnePlus 7T series are too expected to offer the same. However, all these smartphones are expensive lie above the Rs 35,000 price bracket. Realme, on the other hand, till now has been launching handsets in the sub-Rs 18,000 category. Therefore it remains to be seen whether Realme will launch this upcoming 90Hz refresh rate smartphone in its dominating price range or will leap into the mid-range flagship range.
