The Realme 10 series of Android smartphones has been allegedly caught with an updated, almost Nothing phone (1)-like look to its rear cameras in earlier leaks. Now, this design may be confirmed in the form of photos allegedly associated with the upcoming mid-range devices have reportedly appeared on the official TENAA database. Meanwhile, another leak hints at a change of power brick for the 10 Pro+.
Despite the absolute plethora of Realme 9-series smartphones out there, only 2 putative successors have emerged in the form of pre-launch leaks to date: the 10 “4G” and “Pro+”. Now, however, a possible 3rd variant provisionally dubbed the “10 5G” has finally joined the chat.
This new tip is related to the certification of a Realme device with the model number RMX3663 by the regulator TENAA, whereas its rumored siblings are known as the RMX3630 and RMX3686 respectively. On that note, the “new” 10-series variant has been registered alongside an RMX3687 thus far, which may, under this potential nomenclature, be a Pro+ SKU.
Should this be the case, both it and the newly-discovered “10 5G” have been photographed by TENAA, in a leak that might confirm the switch to an updated camera hump, most similar to that of an Asus ZenFone 9 or a Nothing phone (1) without the Glyph LEDs.
Then again, while it is clear that the RMX3663 has just 2 rear-facing cameras, the RMX3687 has 3, with 2 of those crammed side by side into the same lower circle on its back panel.
Then again, unlike the devices on which this new design is obviously based, the “10 Pro+” deviates somewhat with the curves to both its front and rear panels.
This smartphone has also recently popped up on the 3C website, which reveals that it will charge at 67W – which, as Realme normally equips devices of this caliber with an in-house 65W standard, is a little odd.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
