Let’s find out what the Realme Narzo 20 series brings to the table, including the expected price in Nepal of these devices.

Narzo 20 Pro Overview

Starting off the list is the Realme Narzo 20, which brings in the Super Dart fast charging. It is the 65W fast charging capability that we had seen in the Realme 7 Pro. However, Narzo 20 Pro is the first device in the budget segment to sport this feature. With this charging speed, it can charge up its 4500mAh battery from 0% to 100% in just over 38 minutes.
