Today, OnePlus is set to introduce the OnePlus 12, its tenth anniversary smartphone, in China. Realme will introduce the Realme GT 5 Pro in the nation two days later. Given that both smartphones have the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chip, they will compete with one another. Not only do these devices share the same primary camera, but they also have other similarities.
Realme GT 5 Pro has a primary camera (LYT-808)
The 50-megapixel Sony LYT-808 primary camera with OIS capabilities, also found on the OnePlus Open and Oppo Find N3 foldable phones, is the same camera found on the OnePlus 12. The primary camera on the Realme GT 5 Pro will be the same.
With the upcoming release of the 1-inch LYT-900 or the 1-inch Sony IMX989 lens, which is anticipated to launch early in 2019, the LYT-808 is currently Sony’s most powerful camera sensor. The design of the LYT-808 is cooperative and combines algorithms and hardware. It skillfully restores difficult bright and dark elements at the same time, preventing overexposure in well-lit areas and preserving fine details in darker areas.
Furthermore, the GT 5 Pro will be the first smartphone from the company to include a periscope telephoto camera. Specifically, an IMX890 50-megapixel periscope zoom camera with up to 120x digital zoom and 3x optical zoom is included in the device’s setup. The device’s rear camera setup is rumored to include an IMX355 8-megapixel camera for ultra-wide shots, though the company is not promoting it.
Realme’s first smartphone to support wireless charging is the GT 5 Pro, which has the biggest 5,400mAh battery among its flagship models. It is also the first Realme smartphone with an AI super assistant and a USB-C port that supports USB 3.2. For the first time for the company, Android 14 with Realme UI 5 powers the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3-powered GT 5 Pro. For owners of the GT 5 Pro, Realme promises to provide up to three significant Android OS upgrades and four years of security updates.
