Realme 5i Has Launched with Snapdragon 665 and Almost Identical to Realme 5

As planned, Realme has launched its latest entry-level phone official. It means that the new Realme 5i becomes the fourth version of its series. As of today, there are Realme 5, Realme 5 Pro, Realme 5s, and finally Realme 5i.

The Realme 5i is very similar to the Realme 5s. It is a smartphone with Snapdragon 665, a four-lens camera, and a 5,000 mAh battery.

Identical Smartphone

Comparing Realme 5i with its sisters, it is clear that the company has reused a large part of the components between different models. The three models – excluding the Pro, have very similar specifications, especially in their camera.

The Realme 5i mounts the same camera of the Realme 5. It has four lenses. There are

  • 12-megapixel sensor f / 1.8,
  • wide-angle 119 degrees camera with 8 megapixels sensor and f / 2.25 aperture,
  • 2 MP bokeh lens,
  • and the fourth lens of 2 MP for macro photography ranged 4 cm away.

The camera for selfies is another story. It is because in Realme 5i, it is only 8 megapixels while in Realme 5 and Realme 5s, it remained at 13 megapixels. It is one of the few indications that the Realme 5i is the most modest of the series, while the vast majority of the specs are the same.

Snapdragon 665 and a Great Battery

The processor chosen is the Snapdragon 665, and there are two variants of RAM, one of 3 GB and another of 4 GB, both with 64 GB of internal memory. The first choice has 32 GB of memory and the second 64 GB.

It has a 5000 mAh battery and is compatible with the 10 W fast charge. The screen is 6.52 inches and uses HD + resolution.

Versions and prices of Realme 5i

Realme 5i has been initially announced in Vietnam. However, it will be on sale soon, at least in India. We do not have information about future sales in other regions, in which case we will update this post.

In Vietnam, it is available in two colors: green and blue. It comes with two versions they are 3 + 32 GB and 4 + 64 GB (RAM+Storage), with a starting price of 3,690,000 Vietnamese dongs or about 150 US Dollars.
