The phone is powered by Snapdragon 665 – it is actually the second phone coming with this 11nm chipset, but the first in India since the Xiaomi Mi A3 is yet to hit the market. The Realme 5 comes in three memory configurations – 3GB/32GB, 4GB/64GB, and 4GB/128GB.

The phone also has a microSD slot that has its dedicated spot in the SIM tray and not a hybrid layout. This means you can expand your storage further without ditching the dual SIM VoLTE experience.

The two new phones is the first for Realme having four shooters at their rear, but the vanilla variant is keeping it simple – 12MP main shooter with f/1.8 aperture, accompanied by an ultrawide angle module with 119 degree FoV and 8MP sensor. The last two cameras are a 2MP macro snapper with 4cm focus distance and a depth sensor. At the waterdrop notch, you will find a 13MP front-facing camera.
