Flipkart has released a teaser video as well, which gives us a better look at the quad-camera setup on the Realme 5 series phones.
As confirmed at the company's camera innovation event last week, it plans to launch a new Realme X series smartphone in India before the end of October. The smartphone is expected to be a direct successor to the Realme X, which arrived in India last month.
