Realme has been bombarding the smartphone market with products ever since its inception in late 2018. The Chinese upstart is now all set to unveil an entirely new line of smartphones, on top of its existing 'X,' 'C,' and Narzo' series.

The information comes from a teaser posted by Realme's official Weibo handle. The image references a 'pill' and shows what appears to be a camera module protruding out of an empty capsule. Furthermore, the image is set in an MS Paint-Esque environment titled 'pill.psd.' The repeated references to the pill could likely point towards pill-shaped dual-selfie cameras like the one we've seen on the Realme 6 Pro. We can even expect to see a 5G-ready device or two powered by MediaTek's upcoming Dimensity 600 series of chips.

Although Realme is technically an independent entity, it derives much of its technological prowess from Oppo, which, for the longest time, has put all of its eggs in the selfie camera basket. It comes as no surprise that Realme follows Oppo's footsteps, as the company has a lot of ground to cover before it takes on the likes of Xiaomi and Huawei. Realme will likely unveil the phones at IFA Berlin later this year.

I've been an avid PC gamer since the age of 8. My passion for gaming eventually pushed me towards general tech, and I've been a stereotypical 'nerd' ever since. I have a degree in mechanical engineering and have worked in the manufacturing industry. When I'm not writing news on Notebookcheck, you can find me playing or watching an intense match of DOTA 2
