Real Me has come out, there are no design differences between the Pro and the Non-Pro Realm 6, but there are some major discrepancies in design-wise. At first, the RealMe6 Pro doesn’t look cheap and offers a slightly better feel than the vanilla model, and it’s due to the glass back panel. Yes, the Pro is turning the plastic back for a glass one, and the front gorilla glass is upgraded to version 5. The middle frame stays plastic, and RealMe doesn’t say whether there is any protection over the rear glass, so we assume no one.
Interestingly, the real-time detailing of this phone’s waterproofing makes us wonder if it’s any different than the Vanilla RealMe6. Allegedly, the phone relies on three different layers of waterproofing – first, the glue that protects the internal components; Second, there is a silicone gel that closes all the holes around the phone; Finally, the waterproof rings tighten the SIM card slot. Again, the phone does not have an IP legitimate IP rating, so RealMe can confirm that the phone will perform better when it rains or falls.
The Realme 6 Pro is given the most by the double punch-hole on the front and the gradient of the back glass sheet. Because the Pro has a standard wide-angle and ultra-wide-angle selfie cam, it requires a large punch-hole placed in the upper left corner of the display. As for the gradient, RealMe calls it lightning blue, but with lightning orange and lightning red. Standard Realme 6 comes with a comet gradient.

Interestingly, fingerprints and smudges are lower in this particular color or material than standard realm6.
Sidemounted fingerprint reader RealMake is a new thing, and they seem to have nailed it for the first time. The fingerprint reader is embedded in the power button, which is conveniently placed on the right. However, left-handed users must either unlock the phone with their right hand, rely on face unlocking, or do finger gymnastics with their left hand or middle finger or index finger.
We need more time with the device to form a more objective opinion, but at first glance, the RealMe6 Pro looks like a well-built device with little problems, such as the wobbling when placed on a flat surface due to the camera bump. However, if you make a case, it will be gone.
Hardware and specifications
The RealMe6 Pro uses a different panel than the RealMe6, but it feels similar in brightness, contrast, and color calibration. Diagonal is now 6.6 and still offers a 90 Hz refresh rate. We haven’t tested the panel brightness, but it looks bright on a sunny day. RealMe offers a maximum of 400mm brightness, we suspect Max can go beyond auto mode.
Qualcomm’s latest mid-range solution, the Snapdragon 720G, runs all those pixels. When splitting according to the number branding, it should stand between the Snapdragon 730G and the Snapdragon 712 in terms of raw performance. It is built on an 8nm manufacturing process and uses an octacore CPU consisting of 2x 2.3GHz Cryo 465 Gold Cores and 6x 1.8GHz Cryo 465 Silver Cores. The GPU is similar to the Snapdragon 730, so we know what to expect when it comes to graphics performance.
Here are a few benchmarks to see how this comes out against the competition and some of its siblings. Unfortunately, it seems difficult to run any heavy gaming titles at more than 60 fps for this GPU to take advantage of the high refresh rate display.
