Realme has hinted that it will launch a new generation of its Q-series Android smartphones soon. Not only is this line rumored to be in line for top-end charging at mid-range pricing, it is also now linked to a tie-in with the footwear brand Vans. The "new Q's" Pro variant has allegedly emerged in a render with a finish evoking a classic pattern also associated with these shoes.

The Realme Qs are a range of mid-tier Android smartphones that have just racked its first 2 million sales up in the OEM's native China with their latest generation. Now, these Q3 phones are rumored to gain successors with a new take on the kind of appeal their their line tends to pack to ensure their popularity.

Realme instituted the Q line as affordable 5G phones that have also absorbed other high-end specs for their sector over time; for example, some of their 2021 iterations have 144Hz screens. Now, the brand has vaguely hinted at speed of a different kind in a Q5 successor.

A new promo posted by Realme's CEO Xu Qi Chase mainly functions to tout the latest Q3 sales achievements; however, it may also contain a nod at a charging upgrade in the upcoming generation. Accordingly, the Q5 line is now rumored to ship with 80W technology, heretofore only found in the GT Neo3.

That's not all for the Q5s, however, its Pro variant has allegedly been spotted in another new poster that functions as a "design overview" for its Vans-themed Limited Edition. Accordingly, this device is depicted as have a rear panel in the checkerboard pattern strongly associated with the streetwear company, rendered yellow and white in this case to align with typical Realme branding.

The Realme Q5 Pro (or, according to some new leaks, the "RMX3372") is also said to have a 120Hz 6.62-inch FHD+ AMOLED display driven by a Snapdragon 870 processor and 8 to 12GB of RAM. It is projected to add one of the brand's increasingly typical camera humps, with 2 enlarged lenses for 64MP main and 8MP ultrawide-angle cameras, and a 2MP macro shooter as a much smaller afterthought off to one side.

The "Q5 Pro" might also launch with in a plain black finish for a 'standard' edition and have a 5,000mAh battery. Then again, Realme has yet to post anything that might confirm these new rumors to date.
