Seems like the pop-up selfie camera is going to be the next trend in mid-budget smartphones. First seen in Vivo Nex, this feature will now be seen in upcoming devices from Redmi and Realme. Both the companies focus on mid-budget segment devices and have released a teaser video yesterday highlighting this key feature.
Today, Realme’s CMO Xu Qi has teased the name of the upcoming smartphone on Weibo. As per the post, the bezel-less phone with pop-up selfie camera from the company may be called as Realme X. The translated text on his Weibo profile reads “Realme X full screen dare to leapfrog”. This teaser has come just after a day when the company released a theme song teasing the device.
Previously, the phone was spotted on TENAA certification site revealing its key specifications. The phone with a model number RMX1851 was said to house a bezel-less, notch-less display with a pop-up selfie camera, a vertically aligned dual rear camera setup and probably an in-display fingerprint sensor
Other specifications may include a 6.5-inch display, 3,680 mAh battery to power the device and a 3.5mm audio jack. The phone may come gradient finish at the back. Apart from this, there is not much information available, though with the number of official teasers increasing day by day, we can surely assume that the launch of Realme X may just be around the corner.
