This realme 6 arrives with a 6.5-inch IPS screen with Full HD + resolution. We are talking about a good panel, with bright colors and very good viewing angles.

Inside we find the Helium G90T from MediaTek, an ARM Cortex-A76 and Cortex-A55 eight-core chip that showed great performance during your analysis. We put it to the test with fairly demanding games, like Call of Duty: Mobile, and it came out very well.
