New teasers for the Realme 12 series have emerged, suggesting that the series will launch soon in India. Realme India’s official website now hosts a microsite that confirms the new handset will feature a periscope camera, very likely to be the Realme 12 Pro+. Flipkart has also unveiled a dedicated microsite for Realme’s upcoming smartphone. According to a report, the microsite on Flipkart has confirmed that the new handset is a member of the Realme 12 series, as observed from a closer examination of the URL. However, the URL has been revised since then and no longer discloses such details.
