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. The company recently launched two smartphones in the country, a mid-range flagship: Realme X and another budget flagship, toned-down Realme 3 model: Realme 3i.

Realme is set to launch its new smartphone in India with a quad back camera arrangement on August 20, Flipkart affirmed through a microsite. The company also said that they plan to launch next generations of Realme series, Realme Pro series and Realme X series in India before Diwali.

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. Realme is yet to reveal the megapixel count or the sensor details of these four cameras. The Oppo sub-brand has also claimed that the primary sensor on this device would come with excellent low light capabilities. However, there are also two other phones in the making by Realme which have been doing rounds of the internet and these are the Realme 5 and the Realme 5 Pro.

Some officials also see the rise of Huawei and other Chinese tech competitors as a potential threat to USA industrial leadership. Its bigger rival Samsung Electronics has been using its own operating system called Tizen in smartwatches and televisions.

Last week, Realme held a press conference to show off prototype devices of the quad-camera handset as well as the 64MP camera (allegedly called Realme X Pro) in New Delhi. The first smartphone under Realme 3-series, Realme 3 was unveiled in March followed by Realme 3 Pro in April. The second lens will be a ultrawide sensor with a 119-degree field-of-view.

The front-facing camera of the Realme 5 series also remains shrouded in mystery.

The prices are to be revealed, but the leaks give out hints on the purported pricing. The prices of these devices should hover around between the INR 10K and INR 15K mark- unless, of course, Realme decides to throw us a surprise. The Realme 5 that is expected to be priced under Rs. 10,000 is unlikely to feature the 64-megapixel lens.
