Realme took the CES 2024 stage in Las Vegas to showcase the much-anticipated Realme 12 Pro+, offering a sneak peek before its official market launch later this month.
Breaking new ground in the mid-range segment, the Realme 12 Pro+ introduces a 3x periscope zoom camera equipped with optical image stabilization and an impressive larger sensor designed for superior low-light performance.
The phone’s aesthetic appeal is the result of collaboration with renowned Swiss watch designer Ollivier Savéo, featuring a distinctive golden fluted bezel, polished sunburst dial, and a 3D jubilee bracelet over vegan leather, available in blue or white.
The standout feature of the Realme 12 Pro+ is its 64MP 1/2-inch OmniVision OV64B sensor, powering the periscope zoom camera. Realme asserts that this sensor is more than 2.6 times larger than those found in competitors like the iPhone 15 Pro (12MP) and Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra (10MP), enabling it to capture over 1.8 times more light. This translates to the ability to maintain periscope camera functionality even in low-light conditions, setting it apart from phones with smaller sensors that switch to main cameras and rely on digital zoom.
Complementing the periscope zoom camera, the Realme 12 Pro+ boasts a 50MP main camera featuring a 1/1.56-inch Sony IMX890 sensor, f/1.8 aperture, and optical image stabilization. Additional details about the 0.6x ultra-wide camera are yet to be disclosed. The phone integrates Realme’s “MasterShot Algorithm” for computational photography, a feature typically reserved for flagship smartphones, enabling RAW processing.
Powering the device is the Android 14 OS, driven by a mid-range Qualcomm processor, likely the Snapdragon 7 Gen 3, though specific details are pending disclosure.
As the complete specifications and pricing of the Realme 12 Pro+ remain under wraps, the innovative features showcased hint at the potential to set a new benchmark for mid-range phones in 2024.
Realme’s rapid growth may also influence other major manufacturers, prompting them to enhance essential features on their flagship devices. As the brand continues its global expansion, consumers can look forward to more groundbreaking technology and competitive pricing in the dynamic smartphone market.
