Realme’s X lineup has grown over the past year, as the company works on cementing its brand positioning in the Indian market. The Realme X was an early mid-range device, evolving into the Realme XT, X2, X2 Pro, and then to the X50 Pro 5G. There did appear to be a jump in the naming convention, though recent certification listings attempted to explain this with the presence of a Realme X3 SuperZoom. Now, a new Realme smartphone has passed through TENAA, signaling that the company has at least two phones scheduled for launch in the near future.

This new Realme smartphone comes with the model number RMX2142, which is different from the Realme X3 SuperZoom’s RMX2086 model number. Thus, this new phone could be from the X series, perhaps the Realme X3 5G, or it could be named something else — we could not locate concrete information on the branding just yet.

What we do have is a good look at the device, including its renders and a few key specifications.

From the renders, we can clearly spot the dual punch-hole cameras on the front. Further, the back of the device comes with a quad-camera setup, which is a common feature across Realme’s phone lineup. We can also spot a recessed power button, which indicates that the phone will have a fingerprint scanner on the side instead of under the display.

The TENAA listing also presents some key specifications. For instance, this is a 5G smartphone, with support for SA/NSA bands such as Band 41, Band 78, and Band 79 in China. Device dimensions are 163.8 × 75.8 × 8.9 mm, while the phone weighs 192g. The display is a 6.57″ FHD+ TFT LCD display, which also explains the side-fingerprint scanner. The battery on the device is a good 4,100 mAh in capacity. The listing also mentions that the “headphone and charger share port”, which essentially means that there is no headphone jack on the device.

The SoC on the phone is an octa-core unit with a max frequency of 2.4GHz. The RAM on the phone will have options of 8GB, 6GB, and 12GB, while the internal storage on the phone ranges across options of 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB. The rear camera setup includes a 48MP, 8MP, 2MP, and 2MP shooters, while the front setup is a 16MP and 2MP sensor. The listing mentions that there is no optical zoom setup on the phone, so we predict that the camera setup involves a wide-angle camera, a depth sensor, and a macro camera on the rear, and a depth sensor on the front.

There aren’t any more details on the rest of the phone’s specifications, but we should be close to launching anyway, so the official teasers are likely to begin very soon.
