Realme Is Working on a New Phone for India
This is the season of teasers, and with OPPO having just teased an under-display camera solution, Realme has also started working on a phone with the Samsung-made 64MP GW1 sensor and it plans to premiere it in India soon.
According to a tweet by Realme India CEO Madhav Sheth, the sensor is the largest you’ll be able to get in a phone at 1/1.72″, resulting in 1.6µm individual pixel size. It’s a Tetra cell (that’s Samsung for Quad Bayer) type sensor, which means it will natively output 16MP images. Not only this but as you can see from the watermark in the image, it will be only one of four snappers at the back.
Here is what he posted, along with an image captured with the new sensor –
Working on the new premium killer! Introducing world's first smartphone camera with 64MP GW1 largest 1/1.72” sensor and mega 1.6µm pixel with amazing clear shots in low light too. RT if you want to see more “knockout” shots. #DareToLeap pic.twitter.com/D54xNFdaVm

While him or the company are yet to announce a date for the phone’s launch, Madhav Sheth did promise that it will launch in India before anywhere else. The fact that he has been able to share a picture taken with the camera makes us believe that the launch date could be anytime in the next few weeks.
Just last month, Realme had announced that its latest handset Realme C2 would be on sale for the first time on May 15 on Flipkart and on the official website of Realme. The phone with a diamond cut design was officially launched in India on April 22. The RealmeC2 price in India was set at Rs. 5,999 and it is coming with 2GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage options. It’s another variant is available in a combination of 3 GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage. This model is priced at Rs. 7,999. The phone comes in Diamond Blue and Diamond Black colour options.
