Smartphone manufacturing giant Realme could be testing an under-display camera on their current flagship — the Realme GT. The under-display feature, first introduced by ZTE on its Axon 20 5G smartphone grabbed a lot of attention as it provided a full display immersed experience to users.
Today, thanks to our in-house tipster @Debayan Roy, we have come across a concept from Realme which suggests the possibility of the company coming up with a Realme GT with an under-display camera. Take a look at the renders below.
From the images above it seems that this new Realme GT misses out on a traditional notch or even a punch hole. The other possibility here is this concept phone using a pop-up camera. However, with pop-up cameras not gaining too much traction, there is also a possibility of this phone likely to get the new in thing: an under-display camera.
While the Axon 20 5G did become the first smartphone to get an under-display camera, the response to it was, well, a bit underwhelming. It’s only after Samsung came up with its own implementation of an under-display camera (on the Galaxy Z Fold 3), that this piece of technology really started getting popular.
That being said the image quality one gets from under-display cameras still leaves a lot to be desired and the technology is, at best, experimental. But people were still excited to rock a full-screen viewing experience. With this new Realme GT concept, Realme seems to be wanting to follow Samsung’s footsteps to come up with its own smartphone with an under-display camera.
Notches and punch holes on smartphone displays have become commonplace these days with both iPhones and Android devices suffering from the problem. However, since selfies have become an important part of our lives, it has almost become a necessary evil. Smartphone manufacturers are working on ideal panels that will cover the full front surface of the phone while also allowing for a front camera. And one of the ways around that problem is to come up with under-display cameras. The toughest part of this story is to make these under-display cameras work as well as ‘normal’ front-facing cameras.
Anyway, as far as this new Realme phone is concerned, we will have to wait for further leaks around this topic to confirm if it indeed evolves to be a Realme GT with an under-display camera. At the time of writing this, there is no official confirmation if this will ever make it to production.
