Realme initially launched this latest 10 series last month, which is finally going global. On the other hand, the company is adding new members to the series. Realme 10s went official in China, and here we will discuss the specs, features, expected price, and availability in Nepal.
Realme 10s Overview:
While Realme 10s is the latest phone in the company’s portfolio, the specs it offers are not entirely new. Realme has based it on the 9i 5G, which is also available in Nepal, with a few changes here and there.
Design and Design
To start with, Realme 10s has an uncanny visual resemblance to the 9i 5G. It has the same boxy design with a textured CD-inspired finish on the back. The frames of the 9i 5G are completely flat, and the corners are the only part of the phone that still retains a little bit of curve. The phone is 8.1mm thick and weighs around 191 grams. Users can choose between two available color options: Streamer Blue and Crystal Black.
On the front, Realme 10s has a 6.6-inch LCD screen with a 2408 x 1080 pixels resolution. The resultant pixel density is 401 PPI. The screen refreshes 60 times per second and boasts touch sampling rate of 180Hz. It has 400 nits of typical brightness and a waterdrop notch.
The notch is also home to the 8MP selfie camera. Realme 10s has two more sensors on the back. The first is a 50MP sensor which acts as the primary camera. Accompanying it is a 2MP depth sensor for portrait shots. The phone has no dedicated camera module, and the sensors stick out of the rear panel in what Realme calls the dual-ring design.

Performance and Memory
Under the hood, Realme 10s packs the Dimensity 810 5G. Based on a 6nm process, the chip packs two Cortex-A76 performance (@2.4GHz) and 6x Cortex-A55 (@2GHz). It is what handles all the processing going on the 10s. The chip is a slightly overclocked version of the Dimensity 700 on the vanilla Realme 10 5G but offers nothing new compared to the 9i 5G.
Realme has paired the chip with 8GB of LPDDR4x RAM, and users can choose between 128GB and 256GB of UFS 2.2 storage. You can add an additional 6GB of RAM using the virtual RAM feature. There is even a dedicated microSD card slot for storage expansion.
Rest of the specs
Fueling the Realme 10s is a 5,000mAh battery, and it supports 33W fast charging. Realme includes a compatible charger in the box that can take the phone from 0 to 50% in just 30 minutes. Since it uses an LCD panel, the fingerprint scanner is integrated into the power button on the side. On the audio front, you get a single speaker that you can adjust to 17 different levels up to 87 dB. Despite Realme announcing its latest custom skin, 10s is stuck on last year’s Realme UI 3.0 based on Android 12.
