On November 9, 2022, via an exclusive media event held at the Manila Marriott Hotel, our friends from realme Philippines officially launched the much-awaited realme 10 Android smartphone.
Available in Clash White and Rush Black, the handsome realme 10 sports a 6.4-inch FullHD+ Super AMOLED display, a Dual 50 MegaPixel Color AI Camera module at the back, a fairly powerful 6nm Octa-Core MediaTek Helio G99 processor, 8GB RAM that’s even expandable via realme’s own virtual RAM technology, 128GB or 256GB internal storage, and a massive 5,000 mAh Li-Po battery pack. In a nutshell, for its price, it’s a fairly good non-5G midrange smartphone model with an eye-catching design matched with an attractive set of features.

I have already extensively featured this new handset both on our website, on TikTok, and on the TechPinas Youtube Channel so if you want to learn more, I invite you to check out all our previous posts and videos on this device.
That said, I know that I haven’t shared my more personal take on this model apart from my general recommendation. I intend to keep my promise and release that additional review video soon. So I hope that you can subscribe to the TechPinas Youtube Channel and tap on that bell icon so you can be one of the first to catch it before the pre-order period for the realme 10 8GB RAM + 256GB ROM variant, which I personally recommend.
realme 10’s 6.4-inch FullHD+ Super AMOLED display delivers brilliant colors and crisp details. It even supports 90Hz Refresh Rate for smoother screen transitions and more fluid frame rates when playing games.
For now, I’ll keep this post short and just give you the official suggested retail prices for the two realme 10 variants that the company released here.
realme 10 8GB RAM + 129GB ROM dons an official SRP of PHP 12,999 but if you’re going to buy it from realmePH’s official stores in Lazada and Shopee via 11.11 Mega Sale from November 11 to 13, 2022, you can get it for a discounted promo price of only PHP 10,999. That’s a whopping PHP 2,000 off and on top of that, buyers will even get an additional one-year warranty!
This variant will also be sold at the realme Official TikTok Shop at an exclusive discounted price of PHP 11,999 with a FREE realme Cobble Bluetooth Speaker. Consumers may also purchase it via Home Credit or Credit Card for 0% interest at 6 or 9 months installment.
With or without its soft silicone case, realme 10 looks downright attractive with its glittery iridescent back panel that gleams with various hues depending on how light hits it.
On the other hand, realme 10 8GB RAM + 256GB ROM – the variant I personally prefer because of the large internal storage space – has an official SRP of PHP 14,999 and it’s coming a bit later this month. The pre-order period for that will be from November 26 to December 2, 2022.

Now, as for the 50MP Color AI camera at the back and the 16MP Selfie snapper in front, housed in the punch hole in the upper left corner of the screen, here are some “casual” and “everyday” sample photos I’ve taken using them. Kindly tap on each image for a larger view.
