Realme 12x 5G to Debut in India with Industry-Leading Fast Charging: Report

Smartphone maker Realme unveiled the 12x 5G in China last week. The phone positions itself below existing models like the Realme 12 5G and the Realme 12+ 5G. Now, a new report by 91mobiles suggests the 12x is set for an Indian launch soon, with some key differences compared to the Chinese version.

Faster Charging for the Indian Market:

The biggest difference seems to be the charging speed. The Chinese 12x offers only 15W charging, while the report claims the Indian model will boast a much faster 45W fast charging system. This translates to a 0 to 50 percent charge in just 30 minutes, potentially making the 12x the fastest charging phone in its price range in India. The phone will also reportedly support reverse charging, allowing you to use its battery to power other devices.

Additional Features and Expected Price:

The Indian Realme 12x 5G is also said to include a special Dynamic Button function. This button can be configured to access various features like Do Not Disturb mode, airplane mode, and camera modes.

Pricing details are yet to be confirmed, but considering the starting price of the Realme 12 5G at Rs 16,999 (around $203), we can expect the 12x to be priced under Rs 15,000 (around $179). There's no official launch date yet, but it could possibly arrive before the end of March.

  • 6.67-inch IPS LCD FHD+ 120Hz display
