Realme is preparing to release the Realme GT 5 smartphone in mainland China. It’s possible that the device will be launched in the overseas market a few weeks after its Chinese release. Key specifications of the device have already been leaked and we have previously covered them in our posts.
The complete camera specifications for the upcoming Realme GT 5 Pro have been leaked, revealing the possible inclusion of a periscope zoom lens. It seems that periscope zoom lenses will be a popular feature in smartphones this year, with many upcoming models rumored to have them, such as the OnePlus 12 series and Find X7 series. The GT 5 Pro is next in line to potentially feature this type of lens.
A well-known source of information, Digital Chat Station, shared on the Chinese social media platform Weibo details about the potential camera specifications for the Realme GT 5 Pro (also referred to as Realme GT Neo 6 for its global launch). The source suggests that the device will include a 50-megapixel Sony IMX9 camera sensor with a sensor size of 1/1.4″.
According to reports, the device will feature a periscope lens with a 64-megapixel capacity. This lens is likely to use an Omnivision sensor and support optical zoom up to 3X. While periscope lenses are typically expected to offer zoom capabilities of up to 5X or even 10X, Realme is rumored to be limiting it to 3X. However, as this information is not official, it’s best to take it with a grain of salt.
According to reports, the Realme GT 5 Pro is set to launch later this year. The vanilla version of the gadget, the GT 5, is expected to be released in August. Based on available information, it is likely that the GT 5 Pro will be a flagship smartphone, representing an upgrade from previous models.
