realme is gearing up to unveil the much-anticipated realme 12 Pro series of smartphones on January 29. As the official announcement approaches, the brand is keeping us in the loop by confirming some key specifications.
Contrary to earlier beliefs that the realme 12 Pro and 12 Pro+ would share the same Sony IMX890 primary camera, a recent poster revelation debunks that assumption. The realme 12 Pro will sport a different primary camera sensor, namely the Sony IMX882.
In terms of camera specifics, the 12 Pro+ will boast the widely-used Sony IMX890, a sensor commonly found in flagship and sub-flagship phones. On the flip side, the 12 Pro will feature the all-new Sony IMX882 camera sensor, which reports suggest is identical to the LYT-600 sensor seen in phones like the Oppo Reno 11 5G and Vivo S18e, both available in the Chinese market.
The rear camera setup for the 12 Pro+ includes a 64-megapixel OV64B periscope telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom. Meanwhile, the 12 Pro is expected to house a 32-megapixel telephoto camera. Both devices are also rumored to include an 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens.
As for the front-facing cameras, reports indicate a 16-megapixel camera for the realme 12 Pro and a 32-megapixel one for the 12 Pro+. The Pro variant is likely to feature the Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 chipset, while the Pro+ will come equipped with the Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 SoC.
While there’s currently no information on the pricing of the realme 12 Pro series, it’s anticipated to feature a 6.7-inch AMOLED FHD+ 120Hz display, up to 12 GB of RAM, up to 256 GB of storage, and a robust 5,000mAh battery with 67W fast charging.
