Realme Teases A Smartphone With Periscope Lens
On September 21, 2023, Realme Global posted an image on the microblogging platform X (previously known as Twitter). The image contains an outline of what looks like a circular camera housing with three sensors, two of which are round, while the one (highlighted in the picture) is rectangular. For those catching up, the periscope zoom lenses are rectangular in shape.
