Realme is gearing up to introduce its newest smartphone series in the Indian market, a development hinted at by its appearance on Flipkart. While the official name of the handset has not been confirmed by Realme, indications from the Flipkart micro-site strongly point towards the Realme 12 series. If this speculation holds true, the Realme 12 series is poised to succeed the Realme 11 series launched in June 2023.

The Realme 12 series teaser page reveals the intriguing marketing tagline, “Beyond 200MP, Periscope Awaits,” hinting at a groundbreaking addition – the introduction of a periscope camera to the upcoming number series handset. This represents a noteworthy advancement, considering that the periscope lens was previously exclusive to mid-range smartphones, like the Realme X3 SuperZoom unveiled in 2020.
Positioning itself as a strong contender, Realme appears poised to take on rivals like the Redmi Note 13 Pro series and other smartphones in the market. Notably, the Redmi Note 13 Pro phones recently made waves with the introduction of a 200MP camera in the Indian market. In response, Realme is rolling out an attractive exchange program, inviting users to swap their existing 200MP camera smartphones for the upcoming Realme 12 series.
As an added incentive, participants in this program have the opportunity to receive complimentary Realme Buds Air 5, valued at Rs 3,699. To take advantage of this offer, interested individuals can register their interest on the Realme website.
