realme has announced two new phones today in India and they are the 12 Pro and 12 Pro+—the latest mid-range offerings from the Chinese phone brand. Both models in the brand's newest installment feature a luxury watch design, a leather material, and periscope lenses—for the first time in the series.

Both the two models in the lineup, the 12 Pro and 12 Pro+, offer a 6.7-inch Full HD+ display in an AMOLED panel. The displays support a 120Hz refresh rate and a 240Hz touch-sampling rate. Inside the two phones are the Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 for the Pro model and the Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 for the Pro+ model. Albeit, the Pro+ model has a maxed-out 12GB RAM variant while the Pro model only opts for 8GB RAM.
