Realme ‘Blade Runner’ phone to launch on May 25th along with 7 more products

Realme will hold a major launch event on May 25th where it will announce a new phone and some other products

Highlights
  • Realme ‘Blade Runner’ could be a new gaming phone or part of the Realme X3 series
  • Realme is expected to launch 8 new products in China on May 25th
  • This might include new TWS earbuds and a powerbank

Realme has scheduled an event in China on May 25th where it will be introducing close to eight new products. Realme CMO Xu Qi Chase has revealed one of the products on Weibo and it is a brand new smartphone, codenamed ‘Blade Runner’. The image shows the smartphone from the back, revealing a quad camera setup and a grey colour option. Additional teaser posters suggest the company will also announce new truly wireless earbuds, probably the rumoured Realme Buds Neo, and a new power bank. It is unclear what the ‘Blade Runner’ phone will be called at the moment, but we speculate it could be a gaming smartphone or part of the upcoming Realme X3 series.

According to the image (seen above), there’s no sight of a fingerprint sensor on the back or on the side, meaning it will most likely feature an in-display fingerprint sensor. This further suggests an AMOLED display on offer. Additionally, the phone doesn’t have a 3.5mm audio jack as well. While it’s not confirmed, Realme X3 SuperZoom that was recently confirmed by Realme India CEO Madhav Sheth could also make an appearance on the same event. It is speculated to come with specifications like a 108MP primary camera, Snapdragon 855 SoC, a 4,200mAh battery and 30W fast-charging support.

Realme event

Among the 8 products that will launch on May 25th, the company could also announce the Realme Watch smartwatch and Realme TV, which have been expected for a while now. The recently leaked renders of the Realme Watch suggest it will sport a 1.4-inch TFT LCD touchscreen display with 320 X 320 pixels resolution. It will reportedly pack a 160mAh battery, IP68 certification for water and dust resistance and connects via Bluetooth 5.0. However, it won’t run Google Wear OS, instead, will boot a custom UI. All these products should find their way to India in the next few weeks as they were also listed on the company’s India website.
