A few days back, Realme showcased the 64MP Quad camera tech at the event in India & unlike Redmi, Realme did not just show a presentation, but there were actual phones the event which had the 64MP Quad camera setup. Now, Realme is all set to bring new Quad camera phones in the Indian market as the company started teasing the upcoming Realme 5 series on Flipkart with Quad cameras.
Now, the rumours of Realme ditching the Realme “4” were right as the company is moving directly to the Realme 5 series from Realme 3 series. As the teasers suggest, the main highlight is going to be the Quad Camera setup that has a primary camera with a large aperture & large pixel size.
Now, it is a 48 megapixel IMX 586 sensor & note 64MP camera as that’s coming with the upcoming Realme X series phone.
The second camera is for taking ultra-wide-angle shots with 119-degree Field-of-view. So, this will help you get more into the frame without having to move further.
Then, there is a third camera solely for taking macro shots so you can go very close to the subject without losing focus. We saw a dedicated macro lens on the Honor 20 series as well.
Finally, there is a “Portrait Lens”, and while it may sound like a telephoto camera, it is definitely a depth sensor for getting depth information to take better portrait shots.
Since the company clearly mentions “Realme 5 series” in the teaser, there is not just a single phone launching on August 20. There is at least the 5 and 5 Pro. Now, the Realme 3 Pro launched in India this year as the cheapest Snapdragon 710-powered phone, so the Realme 5 Pro is most likely coming with Snapdragon 730. Moreover, a source suggests that Realme 5 also has a Qualcomm chip and not a MediaTek one.
It would be interesting to see at what price it launches in India since Redmi K20 with the same processor was criticised for being overpriced.
