Design and Display
The Realme Narzo 20 sets the tune with a design different from what we had on the Narzo 10, However, this design isn’t exactly new to Realme smartphones, the Realme C11 bears a very similar design.
In comparison, this design is more subtle than what we got on the Narzo 10. It replaces the rear covering we had on last year’s model with a subtle covering that is void of glossy aesthetics.
On the rear panel, you will find a square camera module housing three cameras and an LED flash. Also on the rear is a capacitive fingerprint sensor and the Narzo branding.

The Color variants available for this device, so much so that it might end up being a dilemma for some, which is facilitated by the fact that enthusiasts would be having two options that include Glory Silver and Victory Blue.
The camera department on the Realme Narzo 2020 sort of lacks the need to facilitate a high countenance. Realme is somehow serving enthusiats a lesser premium setup when compared to the Narzo 10.

On the performance side, Realme takes things up a notch with the MediaTek Helio G85 processor, which is a notch higher than the Helio G80 processor we had on the Narzo 10.
The other performance facilitators include a Mali-G52 MC2 GPU, 4GB of RAM, option for either 4GB or 8GB of RAM and a non-removable 6000mAh battery which outweighs the 5000mAh battery on the predecessing model.
Enthusiats who also get an 18W fast charge mechanism, which is geared toward reducing the time it will take for the massive 6000mAh battery to charge with regular speed.
