Any Quantum Physicists here?

I'm curious about recent (I think?) experiments concerning Bell's inequality. From what I understand, but could use some clarification on, Bell's theorem proved that quantum mechanics excludes the coexistence of the concepts of Realism (counterfactual definiteness) and Locality.

At the time, most physicists chose to discard the concept of locality, and experiment under the presumption that realism holds true. However I've heard that recent experiments indicate discarding locality might not be sufficient to satisfy Bell's inequalities, and the concept of realism might need to be abandoned too.

Is there anyone who could provide some insight onto this topic, or maybe just point me in the direction of these experiments? Thanks.
