According to official sources, charging to the halfway mark will take a mere 19 minutes, while a complete recharge can be accomplished in just 48 minutes.

The primary camera setup on the Realme 12 Pro includes a 50MP main sensor, featuring Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) employing a sizable 1/2-inch Sony IMX882 sensor. Complementing this is a 2x telephoto shooter, equipped with a 32MP Sony IMX709 sensor, with dimensions of 1/2.74 inches.
