Realme has started teasing a new smartphone with a periscope zoom camera in the global market. The teaser, which revealed the camera module design of the mysterious phone, gave birth to rumors that it could be the upcoming Realme GT 5 Pro flagship phone. However, a recent Weibo post by tipster Digital Chat Station revealed that it will be a mid-range device. Today, the tipster shared some details about the device.
The tipster claimed that an upcoming digital series smartphone from Realme will have a large circular module with three cameras inside. The design of the camera module will be based on the OPPO Find X6. He added that one of them will be a periscope telephoto camera. DCS said that the phone will have a high-end design and configuration aimed at the masses.
The tipster did not mention Realme explicitly in the Weibo post, but the inclusion of a cat’s logo in the post is a good hint that he is talking about a Realme phone. When he says that it is a digital series phone, he could be talking about the successor to the Realme 11 Pro series. Hence, there is a possibility that the Realme 12 Pro + could be equipped with a periscope telephoto camera.
While it appears that the brand is working on the Realme 12 Pro series, it is unlikely to launch very soon. The reason behind this is that the Realme 11 Pro series was announced in June and debuted globally in July. As a result, it appears that the Realme 12 Pro’s global announcement will come after its debut in November or December in China.
Readers are advised to digest the leak with a pinch of salt. Hopefully, the upcoming reports will shed more about the mysterious phone.
