Starting with the top-specced model, you get a 6.5-inch FHD+ display that pushes a 90Hz refresh, and 120Hz touch sampling rate. The design of the phone itself is familiar and has a back panel that shimmers when light hits it.
The narzo 20 Pro is a gaming phone first-and-foremost, and powering the device is a MediaTek Helio G95 chipset. It’s also got 8GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage to boot. The phone also packs a 4,500mAh battery and has support for 65W of SuperDart fast charging, which realme claims can get you 100% of power in just 38 minutes.
For imaging, the narzo 20 Pro has a 48MP main lens, a 119-degree ultrawide lens, a macro lens, and a black & white portrait lens. For selfies you get a 16MP lens too.
The phone comes with a side-mounted fingerprint scanner and runs on realme UI 2.0 based on Android 11. The narzo 20 Pro is available in White Knight and Black Ninja.
