Realme 5s specifications:

The original Realme 5 came with a quad-camera setup, consisting of a 12-megapixel main camera along with an 8-megapixel wide-angle camera, a 2-megapixel macro camera and a 2-megapixel depth camera.
The new Realme 5s swaps out the 12-megapixel main camera for a 48-megapixel main camera at the back. Realme says users should experience better image quality across various lighting situations. The front camera still stays the same at 13-megapixel.
Realme is using the Samsung made 48-megapixel GM1 sensor for the main camera, which will allow for pixel binning to offer higher details and more sharpness.
