The display is slightly bigger than before, but it has the exact same specifications. It is a 6.6” AMOLED panel with FHD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. It is a Samsung panel with 1300 nits peak brightness and an impressive 600Hz touch sampling rate.
The main camera design has been refreshed. There are now two large sensors with a gap in the middle and a smaller lens next to them. The fingerprint sensor is underneath the display.
Internals and Storage
The MediaTek Dimensity 1200 has been swapped out for a Snapdragon 870 which brings slightly better performance and battery life. This is coupled with  6/8/12 GB RAM and 128/256 GB UFS 3.1 storage.
As for software, it boots Android 11 with Realme UI 2.0 on top. It is packed with GT Mode 2.0 that boosts performance for gaming.
Realme has updated the cooling system with an innovative cooling gel, an aerospace-grade graphene sheet, and a massive vapor cooling chamber. Realme says that it will reduce temperatures by 18C and the overall performance should be 20% better.

The camera configuration is no different. The main sensor is a 64MP unit accompanied by an 8MP ultrawide camera and a 2MP  macro shooter. This camera can record 4K 60 FPS videos and 1080p slow-motion videos.
The punch-hole selfie camera is a 16MP shooter.
