Design and Walk Around

As part of its tradition of showcasing exceptional design in its smartphones, the realme 12+ 5G incorporates design elements from the luxury watch industry, creating a new language for smartphone design.

The phone was co-designed with Ollivier Savéo, an international luxury watch design expert who has worked with various Swiss watch brands. He infused refined elements from his craft into the device's overall design, including a classic Polished Sunburst Dial, Golden Fluted Bezel, and a 3D Jubilee Bracelet that evokes the look and feel of a custom premium watch.

The back of the phone has a Premium Vegan Leather finish that provides a silk-like texture, is dirt-resistant, and has a high-end feel. The realme 12+ 5G is available in two colors - Pioneer Green and Navigator Beige.

In addition to its design, the device is also extremely thin at 7.87mm with a width of 7.4mm for easy handling and weighs only 190 grams despite a 5,000mAh battery capacity.
