realme just launched the realme 12+ 5G, the company’s latest mid-range 5G smartphones in India, as it had promised.  The phone packs a 6.7-inch FHD+ 120Hz AMOLED screen and is powered by Dimensity 7050 SoC, has 3D VC cooling and packs up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.

It has a 50MP rear camera with Sony LYT-600 sensor, 2x in-sensor zoom, OIS, 8MP ultra-wide and a 2MP macro camera. There is a 16MP camera on the front. It runs Android 14-based realme UI 5.0 and will get 2 Android updates and 3 years of security patches.

The phone has luxury watch design, vegan leather back, includes a metallic strap texture. It packs a 5000mAh battery with 67W fast charging that offers up to 50% charge in 19 minutes.

The phone also has IP54 dust and water resistance and has Rainwater Smart Touch technology. The device scans the screen data to determine whether water or a hand is touching the screen. When water is detected, a series of algorithms blocks unexpected touch actions.

In cases where water and touch co-occur, the algorithm reduces the water effect, improving the touch input accuracy. This enhances the overall performance and usability of realme 12+ 5G in every setting, said the company.
