Realme has generated substantial buzz after tantalizing smartphone enthusiasts with a provocative teaser image highlighting an advanced periscope camera. This strongly suggests the company’s next major smartphone launch in India will incorporate this innovative technology, a first for the crucial mid-range segment.
The teaser shared by Realme simply states “No Periscope. No Flagship.” This hints that their upcoming flagship release will feature a periscope telephoto lens, allowing for powerful optical zoom capabilities that were previously only found in expensive premium devices.
Notably, Realme’s only current flagship device – the GT 5 Pro launched in China – does include a periscope camera. However, this high-end phone has not yet made its way to the Indian market.
According to rumors, Realme’s periscope-toting flagship headed to India could be named the Realme 12 Pro+ when it likely makes its debut by the end of January or February 2023.
Expected highlights of the Realme 12 Pro+ include:
- Periscope telephoto camera enabling up to 3x optical zoom without image quality loss
- 64MP main rear camera utilizing advanced OmniVision OV64B sensor technology
- Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 7 Gen 2 processor
- Potential starting price around Rs. 23,000, keeping it in upper mid-range territory
Introducing such trailblazing periscope camera technology that enables powerful optical zoom capabilities down to a more mainstream mid-range price point could give Realme a substantial competitive edge.
Enthusiasts are eagerly awaiting official confirmation regarding the pioneering Realme 12 Pro+ flagship’s launch timeline and complete specifications. This device seems poised to redefine expectations of what camera innovations today’s reasonably-priced smartphones can deliver on.
