Realme has just overtly teased a "newcomer": a smartphone with the simple, snappy name of Flash. Shortly afterward, GSMArena claimed to have been sent some teasers with a succinct explanation for this new moniker: it will launch with compatibility for the OEM's rumored new MagDart wireless charging system.

An official Realme Twitter account has introduced a "newcomer" with the name of Flash (a refreshing change from the usual string of numbers and buzzwords): a product that, based on the outline shown in its new poster, is to be another of this OEM's Android smartphones. However, this one may stand out, through being the world's first mobile device to come with support for the OEM's new MagDart technology.

These impressions are reinforced by further new Flash teasers allegedly sent directly and "exclusively" from the OEM to GSMArena. They largely consist of images, one of which purports to show the new device connected to a larger, NUC-mimicking MagDart wireless charging station. 

The exact specs of this putative accessory remain unknown at present, although GSMArena now claims to have been told that its maximum wattage will exceed 15 watts (W). As for the rest of the Flash, it will apparently have a silver finish to match its new chargers, as well as a triple rear camera hump within which attention is drawn to a markedly enlarged main sensor, with the other 2 in a line beneath it.

The Realme Flash is also now depicted as having a curved display with a left-corner punch-hole selfie camera. It is also touted as particularly high-end, with a Snapdragon 888 Soc, 12GB of RAM, 256GB of internal storage and Realme UI 2.0 based on Android 11.

Add an alleged MagSafe clone, and it might equate to a decent new option in the flagship space. Then again, as the Realme account to have teased it in the first place is Indian, it is just possible that the Flash might be available in this market only.
