Last week, Realme tweeted what looked like an invitation to a launch event of an upcoming phone. It looks looks like that’s not the case. The invitation was specifically for the 64MP quad-camera setup that will be a part of the upcoming phone. Judging from the looks of things now, the upcoming phone may be called the Realme 5.
The indication of this comes from the change of Realme CEO Madhav Sheth’s Twitter handle. It now reads Madhav ‘5’Quad. According to TechRadar, he has done the same for the launch of the Realme X, changing his Twitter handle to Madhav X.
Just got hands on the world's first 64MP quad camera device that will be revealed this Thursday. Check how crazy the clarity is! Btw we don't believe in hype so this device will be the most practical choice at its price and it will be launched very soon. #StayTuned pic.twitter.com/4rM371St86

Realme has also posted an image on Weibo, revealing the date of another announcement event. Nothing about the event is revealed, beyond the 64MP main camera and the quad-camera setup, on a silhouette of a phone. It also looks pretty familiar, as it’s a stylised version of the one in the previous tweet.
The announcement itself is slated to be held on 15 August in Shenzhen, China. It looks like we’ll have to wait until then to find out more about the Realme 5, and the rest of its quad-camera setup.
