Realme CEO Madhav Sheth at the launch of Realme 5 and Realme 5 Pro smartphones announced the name of its upcoming smartphone with a 64MP camera. Named the Realme XT, the smartphone will arrive first to India before any other market in the world.
'All I can say right now about this phone is Quad me up when September ends,' Sheth said while doing a little wordplay on Green Day's 2005 hit single 'Wake Me Up When September Ends'. Sheth also said the smartphone will be "complete expert" in its price segment.
The exact date of launch was not revealed at the event.
The smartphone is touted to be the world's first 64MP camera phone. Realme has been working on the smartphone for at least 3 months now, as we have seen multiple camera samples of the smartphone. Realme first showcased the device at an event in New Delhi where journalists only got to experience the device with a case that shrouded the smartphone's exteriors.
Realme is also working on a 5G smartphone. Sheth previously changed his name to Madhav 5G to create the necessary buzz for the upcoming 5G smartphone. In a statement to IANS, Sheth said the 5G smartphone might arrive in India before the commercial rollout of the technology begins in the country.
The silhouette of the Realme XT shows us that the smartphone will carry forward the design lines of the Realme X that was launched earlier this year.
The Realme X features an edge-to-edge, full screen front with a pop-up selfie camera mechanism. The smartphone is powered by a Snapdragon 710 processor paired with up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The smartphone range currently starts at ₹16,999 and goes all the way up to ₹19,999. It was launched last month.
