As the name suggests, the Narzo 30 Pro 5G also supports 5G connectivity. Just like that Narzo 30AThe Monicker “Pro” also packs price-performance specifications on paper. The Realme Narzo 30 Pro 5G is the cheapest 5G smartphone in India starting at 16,999 rupees.
While the basic variant is equipped with 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage, there is also an 8 GB RAM variant with 128 GB of storage priced at Rs 19,999. When you open the blue color box, you are greeted by a small compartment that contains the Includes a safety guide, a quick start guide and a protective cover. Directly below that we found the Narzo 30 Pro 5G smartphone in Sword Black. The device is also available in the Blade Silver color option.
In contrast to the Narzo 20 Pro, the company opted for a minimalist approach to the back design of the newly launched Narzo 30 Pro 5G. It comes with a matte finish that can still attract a lot of fingerprints. The Narzo logo can also be seen in the lower left corner of the back. The scope of delivery also includes a 30 W power adapter, a USB Type-C cable and a SIM ejector. The triple camera setup on the back has a 48-megapixel primary camera with a f / 1.8 aperture, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera with a f / 2.3 aperture and a 2-megapixel macro camera with a f / 2, 4 aperture.

In addition to recording 4K videos at 30 fps, the Narzo 30 Pro 5G can also record slow motion videos at 120 fps in a resolution of 1080p. The front camera also remains the same as its predecessor. It has a 16MP f / 2.1 aperture selfie camera. The Narzo 30 Pro 5G has a 6.5-inch IPS LCD display with Full HD + resolution (2400 x 1080 pixels) and a high refresh rate of 120 Hz.
It also has Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection on the front. With the narrow bezels and the hole cutout of the camera, the device offers a screen-to-body ratio of 90.5%. With a peak brightness of 600 nits, the display is sufficiently bright for outdoor use. The Narzo 30 Pro with the 7 nm MediaTek Dimensity 800U chipset takes performance to the next level. The octa-core CPU clocked at up to 2.4 GHz and the 3-core Mali-G57 GPU are powerful enough to cope with any task.
This is the same chipset that powers the recently unveiled Realme X7 smartphone, priced at Rs 19,999. It comes with 6 GB / 8 GB LPDDR4X RAM and 64 GB / 128 GB UFS 2.1 flash storage. Since the device has an LCD panel, the company opted for the side-mounted fingerprint scanner, which can be unlocked very quickly. With all of these high-end specs, the device is packaged in a 5000 mAh battery.
Instead of a 65W super dart charger, the company only offers a 30W dart charger. Nevertheless, the device can be charged from 0% to 100% in just 65 minutes. In addition to the proprietary Dart Charge technology, the device also supports charging with 15 W PD. In terms of connectivity, the Naro 30 Pro 5G with the Dimensity 800U processor offers 5G + 5G dual SIM dual standby. It also supports 4G VoLTE, dual band WiFi, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, 3.5mm audio jack and USB Type-C port.
While the device runs on Realme UI 1.0 on Android 10 by default, the company has confirmed that it will be rolling out the Realme UI 2.0 update soon. In this short time we did not encounter any problems. However, the claimed battery life cannot be verified by us during this period. With the powerful chipset and 120 Hz display, the user interface on this device feels super fluid. With a starting price of only Rs 16,999, the Narzo 30 Pro 5G is also the 5G smartphone for the masses.
