The Narzo 20 Pro is the highest offering in the current Narzo lineup. It comes with a 6.5″ Full HD+ display that pushes a 90Hz refresh rate. Under the hood, it runs on a Helio G95 processor that boasts over 300,000 points on Antutu benchmark. The Narzo 20 Pro can be configured with up to 8GB of RAM and up to 128GB of storage which is expandable via microSD card.

For taking pictures, it gets a quad-camera setup featuring a 48MP main camera, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens and two additional 2MP shooters for macro and depth effects. The display comes with a tiny punch-hole that houses a 16MP selfie shooter. For instant unlocking, the device gets a side-mounted fingerprint sensor which doubles as a power button.

Powering the device is a 4,500mAh battery that supports Realme’s 65W SuperDart Charge via USB-C. The device also retains a 3.5mm headphone jack. Out of the box, it runs on Android 10 with Realme UI skin on top.
