realme 13 Pro Series: 50MP Sony LYT-701 sensor, OIS, 50MP LYT-600 3x periscope telephoto camera, AI features confirmed

At the AI Imaging Media preview event in Bangkok, realme unveiled the camera specs and the AI features for the realme 13 Pro Series ahead of the launch later this month.

The realme 13 Pro+ will feature a dual main camera system that include a 50MP OIS main camera with the industry-first Sony LYT-701, and a 50MP periscope telephoto camera with the Sony LYT-600, supporting 3x optical zoom, confirmed the company.

realme has also announced that it has developed HYPERIMAGE+, the industry’s first AI photography architecture, featuring a three-layer architecture that consists of flagship optics, on-device AI imaging algorithms, and cloud-based AI image editing.

The AI HyperRAW Algorithm significantly boosts image clarity and dynamic range to capture authentic light and shadow with true-to-life results. The realme 13 Pro Series also features a series of advanced functions, including AI Pure Bokeh, AI Natural Skin Tone, and AI Ultra Clarity for portrait photography.

“With AI Pure Bokeh, the camera is able to accurately identify foreground, midground, and background elements in a scene, as well as the subject being photographed, which is then used to perform pixel-level segmentation of objects and apply targeted algorithmic optimizations and processing to creating realistic cinematic portraits in seconds,” says the company.

The realme 13 Pro+ has also received the High Resolution Camera Certification by international independent third-party testing, inspection, and certification organization, TÜV Rheinland certification, said realme.

realme also highlights AI Group Enhance and AI Smart Removal features. We should know more details in the coming days, before the phone goes official later this month.

Sven-Olaf Steinke, General Manager of Certification at TÜV Rheinland Greater China, said:

No matter how mobile imaging evolves, clarity will always be the foundation. From capturing the subtle glow of dawn and the soft light of streetlamps, to shooting intense sunlight in nature, the realme 13 Pro+ ensures exceptional image clarity in virtually any lighting environment.

At the event, Francis Wong, Head of Product Marketing at realme, said:

We stand at the cusp of a revolution in mobile photography. For years, the smartphone industry has been competing in a race to outdo each other in terms of imaging hardware — megapixels, sensors sizes, and lens technology. While smartphones continue to provide users with increasing flexibility and control over their shots, advancements in optical solutions have reached a limit. The future is not about hardware alone. AI is the new battlefield where the future of mobile photography will be decided.
