Realme has announced a new addition to its Realme 12 series: the Realme 12+. Positioned as a lower mid-range handset, it features a 50MP primary rear-facing camera, with a 26mm-equivalent focal length, an f/1.88 aperture and optical image stabilization. The Sensor itself is a 1/1.953-inch Sony Lytia LYT-600 chip, which is capable of 2x in-sensor zoom and can record 4K 30fps video.

The two other rear-facing cameras include an 8MP, 1/4.0-inch ultrawide module with a 16mm-equivalent focal length, equating to a 112˚ field of view. An obligatory 2MP macro camera makes up the triple-camera array. Selfie camera duties are fulfilled by a 16MP 1/3.0-inch, 24mm-equivalent front-facing camera.
