Realme is all set announce the Realme U1 selfie-centric smartphone on Nov. 28. It will be arriving as the world’s first smartphone powered by MediaTek Helio P70 chipset. At the recently held Exhibit Tech Awards 2018 event in Mumbai, India, Madhav Sheth who is the CEO of Realme was spotted with the alleged Realme U1 smartphone.
Sheth was spotted using a mysterious gold colored Realme phone for snapping a selfie. The rear shell of the mysterious phone seems to be made out of glass. The handset is equipped with a horizontal dual camera module. The back panel of the mysterious also features a fingerprint scanner. The rear appearance of the phone is not very different from the Realme 2 Pro smartphone.
The Realme 1 that was unveiled earlier this year is equipped with a single rear camera. The Realme 2, Realme 2 Pro and Realme C1 are all equipped with dual rear cameras. However, these phones are not in gold color. Hence, it is speculated that it could be the selfie focused Realme U1 smartphone.
The Realme U1 is expected to arrive with a waterdrop notch screen. The selfie image in below tweet might have been shot using the same phone. If it is true, the phone could be equipped with a wide-angle lens for capturing high quality wider selfies.
