Ever since Apple introduced the Dynamic Island concept with the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max in September, the clock has started ticking. It was only a matter of time before the first Android device maker would emulate the feature. In addition to Xiaomi with the 13 Lite / Civi 2, another manufacturer seems to be about to launch the final version. And that manufacturer is Realme.
Today, thanks to two leaked images from internal company documents, there is the first glimpse of what a Realme Dynamic Island could look like. The matching Realme smartphone will apparently be presented at the MWC next week. The device in question could belong to the entry-level C series. Realme CEO Madhav Sheth had already hinted at wanting to build a pill-shaped camera cutout into a cheap phone. But we wouldn’t be surprised if the feature premieres in the brand new Realme GT3.
At first glance, it is immediately noticeable that the Realme Dynamic Island is significantly wider than that on the Apple smartphones. Nevertheless, the functions should be very similar. As you can see from the pictures, the Dynamic Island displays charging processes via Realme’s SuperVOOC charging standard. Here is the corresponding short video:
It will be exciting to see if third party apps can access the Realme Dynamic Island as well. However, at least at the start, the functionality should be limited to the system level and functions such as charging, media switching and the like.
