Story highlights
  • Realme has launched the Narzo 30 and Narzo 30 5G smartphones in India.
  • The Narzo 30 5G comes with a MediaTek Dimensity 700 SoC.
  • Both the Narzo 30 and Narzo 30 5G have 5000mAh batteries.

Realme Narzo 30 5G has arrived in India along with its 4G version called simply the Narzo 30. Realme chose to launch the two smartphones about three months after the debut of the Narzo 30 series with the Narzo 30 Pro 5G and Narzo 30A. Realme introduced the two phones in Malaysia and Europe initially and it has chosen to bring both of them to India after a short while. The two phones will find their positions among the likes of Narzo 30 Pro 5G, Realme 8 5G, Redmi Note 10 Pro, Motorola Moto G60 Fusion, and the Oppo A54.

The Narzo 30 5G is essentially the showstopper here because Realme has been focusing on its 5G portfolio more than ever this year. That is because it is highly likely that India will begin 5G trials by the end of this year. Although there is no confirmation on that part -- with both Reliance Jio and Airtel fast-tracking the trials, it is not exactly a hurdle in the path of smartphone brands to launch 5G phones in India. In fact, if you go by what these companies said, people are more interested in buying a phone with 5G than any other aspect. And that is why Realme's 5G offerings are coming left, right, and centre.
