This latest model features a competitive camera and a stylish design, which is well-known for this series. It also incorporates elements of the luxury watch design that were introduced in the earlier realme 12 Series 5G models.

I was lucky enough to get my hands on one, and I'm excited to share my unboxing experience and initial impressions of the device. So, let's get started with the unboxing.

Beneath the pack was the realme 12 5G smartphone, wrapped in white matte plastic. Below, I found the 45W SUPERVOOC charging adapter and a USB type-C to USB-A charging cable. Please note that the realme 12 5G smartphone does not come with headphones, so you will have to use your own.

Now that I have unboxed everything, I will take a closer look at the physical features of the device and share my first impression with you.

Design and Walk Around

The realme 12 5G features design elements that were introduced in earlier models of the realme 12 Series 5G, incorporating hints of luxury watch design.

realme 12 5G Design

The device's design comprises of three main elements: the Polished Sunburst Dial—which provides a classic sunburst effect and acts as the bed for the camera module; the Polished PVD Edges—which frame the device's slim and sleek body; and the diamond-patterned 3D Jubilee Bracelet—which subtly ties the whole look together.

The realme 12 5G smartphone is offered in two colors - Twilight Purple and Woodland Green. Mine comes in Woodland Green variant which has a deeper shade of green, reminiscent of nature and lush forests. The back of the phone has a glossy finish that appears to change when viewed from different angles, without being prone to fingerprint smudges.

realme 12 5G Thickness

In addition to its design, the device is also thin at 7.69mm and weighs only 188 grams despite a 5,000mAh battery capacity.
