The primary camera is said to be a Sony IMX519 sensor that’s capable of superior photography. The Realme 3 Pro is capable of producing 64MP shots which are termed as Ultra HD where the handset uses pixel binning technology where four 16MP images get stitched together to achieve the 64MP image. The handset sports a 25MP f/2.0 sensor up front. There are a variety of camera modes here which include burst shot, nightscape, chroma boost portrait mode and HDR.
