Oppo spin-off Realme will officially present its first smartphone with a 64MP camera sensor – the Realme 5 at a launch event tomorrow. But that is for the Indian market, as the company had earlier confirmed that the device will launch first in India before heading to other markets.
Well, for the Chinese market, the brand has announced that the device will launch in China a week after its Indian debut. The company in an announcement post on Weibo revealed the Realme 5 will officially land in China on August 15th. Other than the confirmation that the device will launch as the Realme 5, the brand has yet to divulge other details about the device.
However, the announcement post again reiterates that the device will come fitted with a Quad camera sensors at the back. The camera details at this moment remain a mystery, though the primary camera sensor could be a 64MP sensor, which perhaps could be one of its highlights. The sensor is rumored to be the recently unveiled Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor which uses Tetracell technology to merge data from four pixels into one, essentially resulting in 16MP 1.6 micron pixel snaps.
