realme 12 Pro series launching January 29 with 50MP Sony main cam, 64MP periscope lens with 120x zoom

The realme 12 Pro is bringing DSLR-level photography on smartphones this 2024.

realme is gearing up its next launch and it’ll feature an innovative photo-centric smartphone. In an announcement, the brand revealed the realme 12 Pro, “where master meets mastery.”

The realme 12 Pro 5G is a series that gives users the skill to become a Portrait master. On top of that, users are given that luxurious tone with the phone’s unique design composed of a polished sundial, golden fluted bezel, and premium vegan leather.

The brand claims that the realme 12 Pro 5G can capture DSLR-grade portrait images via its rear camera system. realme India revealed the following breakthroughs for its periscope camera:

  • 64MP periscope camera
  • 1/2″ OV64B telephoto sensor 
  • 3x optical zoom and 6x in-sensor zoom
  • 120x SuperZoom
  • 80mm focal length
  • SuperOIS as image stabilization for telephoto

The realme 12 Pro’s upgraded camera system challenged the iPhone Pro Max’s photography. Based on sample images, the shadows were apparent on the subject’s face and the background elements weren’t totally blurred out on realme 12 Pro, compared to the iPhone Pro Max.

Even the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra didn’t escape the gauntlet. Two images allegedly taken using both phones were compared, and the realme 12 Pro retained the sharpness of the subject in focus at 3x zoom unlike the Galaxy flagship.

While no prices yet have been detailed, the realme 12 Pro Series is launching in India on January 29 at noon, local time.
