Realme announced two new phones in China earlier today but both of them are just minor spec bumps over their predecessors. Realme’s Q3 Pro was announced in China just last month but the new Carnival Edition unveiled today brings the Snapdragon 768G in place of the Dimensity 1100 chipset found on the regular Q3 Pro and also ups the charging speed from 30W to 50W.
Buyers are also treated to two new special colorways. The first is a toned-down black finish while the other is a shiny gradient finish with Dare to Leap branding on the back.
The rest of the spec sheet matches the Q3 Pro with a 6.43 AMOLED display and a 120Hz refresh rate, a 4,300 battery and a 64MP + 8MP + 2MP camera setup. The Realme Q3 Pro Carnival Edition retails for CNY 1,799 ($280) though a special introductory price brings the total down to CNY 1,499 ($234).
Everything else is unchanged over the GT Neo. Pricing starts at CNY 2,299 ($358) but there’s also an early bird offer which bumps the price to CNY 1,999 ($312).
