Realme on Tuesday (August 9) teased the arrival of Realme 11 5G in India without confirming the moniker and launch date. Additionally, the RAM and storage configurations of the handset have been leaked online. It is said to be available in two storage options in the country. The Realme 11 5G, powered by Dimensity 6020 5G SoC, was launched in China in May this year alongside the Realme 11 Pro and Realme 11 Pro+ 5G. The company brought the Realme 11 Pro models to India two months ago. The Realme 11 5G debuted in select global markets in July with a MediaTek Dimensity 6100+ chipset under the hood.
Through a teaser post on Twitter, Realme announced the launch of a new handset in the country. The tweet carries the tagline ‘Double Leap revolution’. The poster image shows the handset with a huge circular camera module. Although the company has not confirmed the moniker and launch date yet, it is largely speculated that the Realme 11 5G will break cover soon.
Separately, a report by 91Mobiles has leaked the RAM and storage configuration of the Indian variant of Realme 11 5G. The report suggests that the smartphone would be offered in 8GB RAM + 128GB storage and 8GB RAM + 256GB storage options. It is said to come in Glory Gold and Glory Black colour options.
