The quad-camera setup on the rear packs a 64MP primary Samsung GW1 sensor along with 8 MP wide-angle lens, 2 MP depth sensor and a 2 MP macro lens. The front cam is supposed to be a 32 MP shooter.

Realme Buds Air – What we know so far

The design of the buds draws a direct comparison to the Airpods from Apple, with black and yellow variants along with the standard white.

Wireless Charging support has been confirmed

Realme has also confirmed touch controls as well as wireless charging support. Realme has also announced a 10W wireless charger, the launch date for which is yet to be revealed. Even without it, the battery backup claimed is 3 hours and extends up to 17 hours with the charging case. The buds can also sense if you're wearing them with an optical sensor, so playback is paused when you take them off without manual intervention.
