Realme Pad X has been recently launched in India and can soon make its way here in Nepal.
This is the most premium tablet from Realme to date. Previously, the company had some subpar-performing tablets in the market and they were not so much preferred. It was the same case with its smartphones also, but it has changed now; within a year, Realme has launched some of the best smartphones in almost every price range and has recently launched its flagship Realme GT 2 Pro worldwide.
The launch of Realme Pad X indicates that Realme now is ready to step into the tablet market as well. The tablet has a decent display with a comparatively higher resolution. The tablet also has a wide-angle selfie camera. Exciting features like screen mirroring have also been included on the tablet.

Design and display
Realme Pad X comes with a glass front, plastic back and a plastic frame build. The device has a minimalistic design. The trendy flat edges on the tab are accompanied by round corners. The back panel has a sparkling sand texture that gives a glittering effect. On the top of the back panel is a small square-shaped camera module. On the bottom right is a subtle Realme branding.
The device weighs 499 grams and is only 7.10 mm thick. It is available in glowing grey and glacier blue colour options.
On the front of Realme Pad X is a 10.95-inch IPS LCD display offering a resolution of 1,200*2,000 pixels and 213PPI density. The display can further achieve a peak brightness of up to 450 nits. The tablet also supports the Realme Pencil which the user has to purchase separately. Realme claims the Realme Pencil feels like a real pencil. The 240Hz touch sampling rate on the tablet will ease the use of the pencil and can be extremely useful for creative people.
Realme Pad X has a minimalistic camera setup. There is a single 13MP camera on the back while an 8MP selfie shooter resides on the front. The front camera on the tablet can be extremely handy as it has a wide 105 degrees FOV. This specification may not look much, but it can manage to get decent photographs.
The camera modes on the tablet include 13MP mode, HDR, AI scene recognition, filter and slow motion. Both the front and rear cameras on Realme Pad X can record 1080p resolution videos at 30fps.
Performance and storage
The device is available in 4GB and 6GB RAM variants coupled with 64GB and 128GB of internal storage respectively. On this tablet, the user has the flexibility to expand both RAM memory and storage. Through the dynamic RAM expansion, the RAM storage on the device can be expanded by up to 5GB. The storage can also be expanded by up to 512GB with the help of a microSD card. This feature can be beneficial if the user is performing several tasks simultaneously.
Battery life, connectivity and others
Realme Pad X comes with a large 8,340mAh, non-removable li-po battery. This battery can provide power enough for:
- 19 hours of video streaming
- 11 hours of video call
- 19 hours of reading
- 123 hours of music
- 23 hours of document processing
The battery can be charged with a 33W dart charging. The tablet can also be used as a power bank to charge your phone as it supports reverse charging mode as well.
In terms of connectivity, Realme Pad X comes in two variants: wifi only and 5G versions. Furthermore, the device has Bluetooth 5.1 for wireless pairing with other devices and uses USB Type-C 2.0 cable for charging and wired pairing. It does not support FM radio or NFC. For the audio, it has Stereo Quad Speakers, Dolby Atmos sound effect, Hi-Res Audio certified and adaptive surround sound. However, there is no 3.5mm headphone jack on the device.
Other interesting features of Realme Pad X include multi-screen collaboration, with which the users can cast their phone screen onto Realme Pad X. The users can also copy text from the phone screen onto the tablet, drag and drop files, edit files from the phone on the tablet, or control the phone itself.
There is also a split-screen function on the tab where the users can access two apps simultaneously. There is a reading mode as well which the company claims will simulate the experience of reading a paper book. The eye comfort and protection feature on the tab prevents eye fatigue.
Realme Pad X is priced at INR 19,999 for the 4/64GB wifi variant and INR 25,999 for the 5G model. If and when the device will be launched in Nepal, one can expect a starting price of Rs 40,000 for the wifi and Rs 50,000 for the 5G variants. In this price range, it will face tough competition from Xiaomi Pad 5.
