In a surprising move, Realme, the innovative smartphone manufacturer, is hinting at the revival of its periscope camera technology, a feature that gained attention back in May 2020 with the launch of the Realme X3 SuperZoom. Since then, Realme has refrained from incorporating this unique camera system into any of its subsequent smartphone releases.

Realme recently ignited speculation with a cryptic image posted on its official platform, X. The image showcases a distinctive circular camera module housing two circles and a solitary rectangle. It's plausible that the two circles represent the primary and ultrawide lenses, while the intriguing rectangle strongly suggests the return of the periscope telephoto camera.

While Realme has remained tight-lipped about specific details regarding the camera or the device itself, they couldn't resist taking a subtle jab at Apple's recently unveiled iPhone 15 Pro Max. Realme's official statement teased, "Not only Max can zoom," in reference to Apple's latest flagship, which proudly features a 12MP periscope telephoto lens with 5x optical zoom, marking Apple's debut with periscope camera technology.

Returning to Realme's upcoming device, industry insiders speculate that this could be none other than the highly anticipated Realme GT5 Pro. Rumors suggest that this smartphone will debut with the as-yet-unannounced Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC, a chipset that promises groundbreaking performance. Furthermore, the device is expected to boast a formidable 64MP telephoto camera, powered by the advanced OmniVision OV64B sensor.

As excitement brews in the smartphone world, Realme enthusiasts can anticipate further revelations in the weeks to come as the company unravels the mystery surrounding its latest creation. Stay tuned for updates on what could be a game-changing addition to Realme's impressive lineup.
