On August 8 Realme will be showcasing its 64MP camera technology set to boast their future smartphones. Soon after the announcement, the company’s CEO Madhav Sheth changed his name on Twitter to “Madhav ‘5’ Quad”. This led the tech enthusiasts into a crazy spiral of speculations pointing to the Realme 5 as Realme’s choice to boast the brand new 64MP technology. That will not be the case, and although the Realme 5 will sport a Quad-Camera setup it won’t have the new tech inside.
An industry source from 91mobiles came to reveal that neither the Realme 5 or Realme 5 Pro will feature the 64MP sensor. The midrange duo will indeed feature a Quad-Camera setup on the back, but it won’t be the 64MP teased by the company. Instead, the vanilla Realme 5 will feature a 16MP came. The 5 Pro, in counterpart, will feature the nowaday’s standard 48MP sensor. The same source indicates that this setup won’t include a Telephoto lens.

When it comes to the 64MP powered smartphone, Realme will probably leave it for the Q4 2019. That’s exactly when Xiaomi will likely be releasing the Redmi Note 8 in India. The Chinese fellow is Realme’s strongest competitor in India. Considering this, we are sure that Oppo’s subsidiary will also have something on its sleeves.
For more details about the 64MP technology, stay tuned for tomorrow’s event. Madhav Sheth is putting more fire on the technology through Twitter. He states that Realme “doesn’t believe in hype.” For that reason, the 64MP phone will come “very soon” as the “most practical choice at its price”. Furthermore, he uploaded some image samples captured with the new sensor. It gives us a good glimpse of what to expect from the handset.
