As we are less than a week away from the launch, TheUnbiasedBlog publication has shared a Realme 6 series render and pricing details. The render shows both devices from the front panel revealing that Realme 6 will have a single punch-hole selfie camera and Realme 6 Pro will have dual punch-hole selfie cameras.

The official Realme website also has a dedicated teaser page for the smartphone which reveals some more specifications. It shows that the series will feature a 64-megapixel AI quad-camera setup with up to 20X digital zoom. The other three cameras will include an ultra-wide sensor, a telephoto sensor, and an ultra macro sensor. It confirms that while Realme 6 Pro will have dual selfie cameras, the Realme 6 will feature only a single selfie camera.
Both Realme 6-series smartphones will sport a 90Hz display with Full HD+ resolution. The battery capacity is unknown but it will be supported by 30W Flash Charge. It is claimed to offer 40% of charging within 15 minutes of charging.
The same page also offers an option for users to place "Blind Order". It is a way for users to book the Realme 6 series smartphone by paying Rs. 1,000 until March 4th. Once the phones become official, they will need to pay the remaining amount until March 15th. Realme says that Blind Order will "ensure 100% chance to buy a new product in advance". It is worth mentioning that all Realme 6 buyers will get Realme Buds 2 earphones for free and Realme 6 Pro buyers will get flat Rs. 1,000 off on the purchase of Realme Buds Air.
