Realme GT 2 Pro’s wide-angle camera to have massive 150-degree field of view

Smartphone company Realme’s first true flagship device, the Realme GT 2 Pro, will come with a truly wide-angle camera. How wide? It will take photos with a massive 150-degree field of view, far wider than the majority of competing phones, so you can capture more of the scene in front of you.

If you’re not familiar with the field of view offered by most wide-angle cameras on smartphones, for comparison the Google Pixel 6 Pro’s wide-angle camera has a 114-degree field of view, the iPhone 13 Pro’s camera captures 120-degrees which is the same as the Galaxy S21 Ultra, while the older Galaxy S20’s camera could take wide-angle photos with a 123-degree field of view.

The GT 2 Pro’s main camera will have an 84-degree field of view, meaning you really will see the difference in viewpoint when you switch to the wide-angle camera on the phone. In addition, Realme will add a “fisheye” camera mode to the phone’s software, altering the perspective to take full advantage of the wide-angle camera for an unusual final photo.

News of the GT 2 Pro’s camera is joined by more details on the upcoming phone, including its having a rear panel made from a sustainable biopolymer material, and a design from long-time Realme collaborator, the Japanese industrial designer Naoto Fukasawa. The phone’s look is apparently inspired by paper, similar to different materials inspiring previous Fukasawa-designed Realme phones.

This information on the GT 2 Pro comes after it was revealed the phone will use Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor. It’s likely to be one of the first smartphones to use the chip, and while Realme has used Qualcomm’s top processor in the past — the Realme GT was powered by the Snapdragon 888 — the rest of the specification tended to be mid-range. Realme has said the GT 2 Pro will be a true flagship, and we’re keen to see what the rest of the spec will be, but we do know it will come with an ultra-wideband antenna array for more reliable connectivity, a new Wi-Fi antenna design for improved reception, and a redesigned NFC antenna for better performance.

Realme has not shared any further information on the GT 2 Pro yet or revealed what the phone will look like. Should further details be announced we will update here.

As great as the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro are, they're both already a few months old at this point, and the rumors about the iPhone 15 are well underway. We still have several months before the iPhone 15 models drop, though, as Apple usually makes iPhone announcements in the fall. In other words, there's still a lot of time for rumors to circulate around the internet.

We're keeping all of the reports and rumors of the iPhone 15 here in a single place for your convenience, but do remember to keep in mind that these are all still just speculation. Nothing is final until Apple confirms it during an official announcement. Still, a lot of the rumors give us an idea of what to expect each year, which is unfortunate if you like surprises.

These Android apps are spying on you — and there’s no easy way to stop them
Illustration of a giant eye stalking through a phone

Android’s security woes need no introduction, but another threat that hasn’t received its fair share of awareness relates to spyware and stalkerware apps. These apps can secretly be installed on a victim’s phone to monitor their activity and can be exploited to harass victims of domestic abuse and engage in online stalking. All someone needs is physical access to the victim's phone to install these apps, which is not too difficult in cases of domestic abuse.

Call it an app-fueled version of AirTag stalking, but on steroids, because these spyware apps can steal everything including messages, call logs, emails, photos, and videos. Some can even activate the microphone and the camera, and secretly transfer these recordings to a remote server where the abuser can access it. Since Google Play's policies don't allow stalking apps, these apps are sold via third-party websites and need to be sideloaded.

Samsung’s Galaxy S23 is here, and it's quickly become one of the best phones you can buy in 2023. For $800, you’re getting a small but mighty phone with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy chipset, long-lasting battery life, and a powerful triple lens camera system with a 50-megapixel main shooter.
