OPPO’s sub-brand Realme is gearing up to unveil its first smartphone called Realme 1 on May 15. Oppo Realme 1 will be Amazon exclusive and the online-only device will be made available from May 15. Going by the specifications, the Realme 1 will be a mid-segment device that will compete directly with Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 and Asus Max Pro M1.

Oppo Realme 1 is expected to ditch a fingerprint sensor for unlocking the phone, and use facial recognition. The phone will ship with the company’s ColorOS 5.0, based on Android 8.1 OREO

The display is 6.0-inch IPS LCD FHD+ (2160×1080 pixels) with 18:9 aspect ratio. In comparison, the Redmi Note 5 has a 5.99-inch FHD+ FullView display. In terms of camera, the Realme 1 is rumoured to feature a 13MP primary shooter with depth effect and PDAF. The selfie camera will be 8MP with support for Portrait mode. The Oppo device could also support stickers on the front cameras as well as AI (Artificial Intelligence)-powered filters for enhanced selfies.
