IThome reports that a blogger shared the schematics of an alleged Realme smartphone with a unique rear camera module. As per the illustration provided with the report, the oval-shaped camera module features five cutouts – four circular and one rectangular. The circular cutouts are arranged in a diamond-shape fashion with the rectangular one sitting just below this setup.
There is no information on the camera/ lens but it is claimed that one of the circular cutouts will have a flash. The rectangular cutout could be a periscope camera just like we have seen in various smartphones. When seen from the front, there is a single hole-punch cutout on the top left corner, a chin and bezels on three sides.
The schematics of the alleged Realme smartphone also show a 3.5mm headphone and charging ports. As far as physical buttons are concerned, the power button can be seen on the right side, volume rocker is placed on the left.
Gadgets 360 is unable to confirm the claims, therefore, it is advised that users take this development with a pinch of salt.
