In a couple of days, Oppo’s offshoot Realme will be unveiling a new series of its smartphone lineup with the release of the Realme U1. While we have been treated with a couple of leaks, a new leak that has just emanated from China appears to have confirmed some more details and provide clarification about the upcoming device.
First off, a new leak making the round suggest the Realme U1 will come fitted with a large 6.3-inch IPS display, with an FHD+ resolution, a “U”-style notch, and sadly a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. And while its pretty now clear the Realme U1 will launch as the first smartphone to use the Helio P70 chip from MediaTek, the new leak confirms that the device will come in variants having 3GB + 32GB or 4GB + 32GB RAM and expandable storage combo.
Most notably here, the Realme U1 will come fitted with a dual 13MP, f/2.2 main snapper, and a 2MP, f/2.4 depth rear camera combo, while a more capable, but a single 25MP, f/2.0 camera will sit inside the “U”-style notch. Furthermore, the leak has it that front sensor camera is made of the Sony IMX576 sensor, which further confirms that the upcoming device will be positioned as a selfie-focused smartphone as is been touted by the infant company.
The leak also has it that the device which will most probably booth the latest flavor of Google’s Android OS will be powered by a 3,500 mhAh battery which will be charged by a charger rated at 10W (5V/2A), but there is no confirmation that the device will come with support for fast charging.
The Realme U1 will go official in a few days time, and apparently, actual sales will begin after the event in India. The phone like the other devices in its lineup is expected to be exclusive to India, at least for a start.
