Elsewhere, in China, the company is busy preparing for its second-anniversary celebration. The event is set to take place May 25 and will also serve as a launching pad for eight products, including a new gaming-focused 5G smartphone.

The handset is code-named Realme Blade Runner, and we’ve already seen how it looks, thanks to pictures posted by the brand and its chief marketing officer, Chase Xu, on Chinese social media platform Weibo.

Another ‘Realme Blade Runner’ teaser

Based on the teasers, the Blade Runner has a glossy back panel that somehow reminds us of the Realme XT. It seems to be made of glass and contains four cameras arranged vertically on the upper left side. It’s impressive how small the camera bump is.

Along the left edge is a yellow power button, and along the right, the volume keys. At the bottom are the card slot, USB Type-C port, and speaker grille. There are visible antenna lines, too. No physical fingerprint sensor can be seen anywhere, so it’s likely placed under the screen.

The Realme Blade Runner is tipped to be the RMX2072 that was spotted in Antutu with a benchmark score of more than 600,000. It’s said to use a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor and has support for 65-watt fast charging.

We can’t wait to see what this is. We suggest you mark your calendar now; the event should be interesting because Realme is also expected to unveil IoT [internet of things] products at the time. Till then.
