Realme V15 5G has received a certification from the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS), a tipster has claimed. The Realme phone was a part of the rumour mill for some time and ultimately debuted in China earlier this week. Realme brought the new smartphone with MediaTek Dimensity 800U SoC and triple rear cameras. It also comes with a hole-punch display design that is available on a list of Realme phones available in the Indian market. Details about the Indian launch of the Realme V15 5G are yet to be announced officially.
Tipster Mukul Sharma (@stufftings) tweeted an image purportedly showing that Realme V15 5G received the BIS certification with model number RMX3092. This is the same model number that was initially associated with the rumoured Realme 8.
The tipster said that Realme V15 5G is likely to launch in India soon, given that it received the BIS certification. However, the exact launch details are yet to be announced. It is also important to note that companies often get their new devices certified in multiple markets and that doesn't explicitly translate into their imminent launches.
