Realme C33 unveiled, Watch 3 Pro and Buds Air 3S tag along
Let's talk about the Realme C33 first, which is reminiscent of the Realme 9i 5G. The C33 is built around a 6.5" screen with a notch for the 5MP selfie camera. The display has a 120Hz touch sampling rate and a typical brightness of 400 nits, but Realme hasn't revealed the panel's resolution for some reason. Chances are its 720p.
The Realme C33's back cover flaunts what Realme calls a Boundless Sea Design. It sports an LED flash and features two cameras - a 50MP primary camera joined by a portrait unit.
Under the hood, we have a Unisoc T612 SoC with up to 4GB RAM and 128GB storage. The smartphone also has a dedicated microSD card slot for storage expansion up to 1TB and runs Android 12-based Realme UI S Edition out of the box.
The Realme C33 comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack, a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, and Dirac 3.0 audio support. And fueling the entire package is a 5,000 mAh battery, which draws power through a microUSB port at up to 10W.
The Realme C33 is offered in Sandy Gold, Aqua Blue, and Night Sea colors and has three memory options - 3GB/32GB, 4GB/64GB, and 4GB/128GB. The 3GB/32GB model is priced at INR8,999 ($112/€113) and the 4GB/64GB version at INR9,999 ($125/€125). Both will go on sale in India starting September 12 through Realme's official Indian website, Flipkart, and mainline channels. There's no word on the 4GB/128GB version's pricing and availability, though.
Realme Watch 3 Pro
Next up is the Realme Watch 3 Pro - successor to last year's Watch 2 Pro. The Realme Watch 3 Pro sports a "retina-grade" 1.78" AMOLED color touchscreen of 448x368-pixel resolution. It has a refresh rate of 50-60 FPS and a peak brightness of 500 nits. That's 100 nits dimmer than the Watch 2 Pro's panel, which is of LCD type and is a tad smaller than the Watch 3 Pro's screen.
The Realme Watch 3 Pro supports over 100 dynamic and static watch faces, and you also have the option to create one using a photo from the connected device's album.
The Watch 3 Pro supports Bluetooth voice calling and comes with the usual set of health and fitness features, including heart rate monitoring, sleep tracking, and blood oxygen level measurement. The smartwatch can also measure your stress levels and track women's menstruation cycle.
Besides, the Realme Watch 3 Pro supports 110+ indoor and outdoor sports modes and comes with Cywee Professional Sports Algorithm that can intelligently identify some activities, including walking, running, and cycling. Oddly enough, unlike the Watch 2 Pro and Watch 3, the Watch 3 Pro isn't IP68 dust and water-resistant and can't track your swimming performance.
That said, the Watch 3 Pro comes with five GNSS systems - including GPS - and uses Cywee's professional GPS positioning algorithm for accurate location tracking. It has Bluetooth 5.3 connectivity and works with Android (5.1 and above) and iOS (11 and above) devices.
The Realme Watch 3 Pro packs a 345 mAh battery advertised to offer up to 10 days of endurance with "standard daily use of GPS and Bluetooth calling" and up to 13 days without Bluetooth calling.
The Realme Watch 3 Pro weighs 26.7g, while the straps weigh 14g. The straps are made of silicone and have a 22m width, with the adjustable length being 140-220mm.
Realme will start selling the Watch 3 Pro for INR4,999 ($62/€63) from September 9 in India through its official website, Flipkart, and mainline channels with two color options - Black and Grey.
Realme Buds Air 3S
Lastly, we have the Realme Buds Air 3S TWS earphones, positioned above the Buds Air 3 Neo and below the Buds Air 3.
The Buds Air 3S pack an 11mm Liquid Silicone Triple Titanium Bass Driver in each bud and support Dolby Atmos and customized EQ tuning. They come with three pairs of silicone ear tips (small, medium, large) for passive noise cancellation and have a 4-Mic design for AI-based Environmental Noise Cancellation for calls. They also have silicone ear wing tips to ensure a stable fit in your ears, so they won't fall off when you are riding or running outdoors.
The rest of the Realme Buds Air 3S' highlights include 69ms low latency mode, Bluetooth 5.3 connectivity, and IPX5 water resistance. They also support touch controls and come with a Dual Device Connection feature which lets you quickly switch between two paired devices.
The Buds Air 3S pack a 43 mAh battery in each bud which can offer up to seven hours of music playback on a single charge and 16 hours of calling. When paired with the charging case - flaunting a Music Box Design and having a 460 mAh cell - you can get another 23 hours of audio playback.
The charging case has a USB-C port and supports Dart Charge. Realme says it takes two hours to fully charge the case with the buds inside and an hour to only charge the earphones. A quick top-up of 10 minutes provides up to five hours of playback.
The Realme Buds Air 3S are offered in Bass Black and Bass White colors. They are priced at INR2,499 ($30/€30) and will go on sale in India starting September 14 through Realme's official website, Amazon.in, and mainline channels.
