Realme 5i Features

Looking at the canera, the main shooter at the back of the Realme 5i has a 12MP sensor and f/1.8 aperture. The second is an 8MP ultrawide angle camera, which covers 119° field of view and supports Super Night mode. The two cameras can work together to shoot videos like this one:

The main camera can also shoot 4K video at 30fps or go slow with 120fps slow-mo mode. There are two more cameras to cover – the 2MP macro camera (which can focus at 4cm distance) and the 2MP depth sensor. The video recording is enabled by the 11nm Snapdragon 665 chipset, which houses four Kryo 260 Gold and four 260 Silver cores (A73 and A53 based, respectively), plus an Adreno 610 GPU.

The Realme 5i will be available in two memory configurations – 3GB/32GB and 4GB/64GB. In both cases, there is a dedicated microSD card slot for internal storage expansion. The phone runs on Color OS 6.1 based on Android 9 Pie out-of-the-box.

The Realme 5i screen features an IPS panel with 720 x 1600 pixel resolution. It is protected by Gorilla Glass and promises 480 nits of brightness. The display has a teardrop notch which houses the 8MP selfie camera.

The Realme 5i will also be available in Green and Blue colours. Both versions feature a “Sunlight” pattern – a wavy texture on the back, the result of 10 hours of polishing with a specialized machine. Also on the back is the capacitive fingerprint reader.

Apart from the cameras, the battery is another major selling point of the Realme 5i. It has 5000mAh capacity and with reverse charging, you can also use it as a power bank to top up other devices.

The 5i comes with a standard 10W charger, which unfortunately uses a microUSB cable to connect to the phone. At least there’s a 3.5mm headphone jack on top – that’s one old connector we’re glad to see.

Realme 5i Price

The Realme 5i price in Vietnam is VND3,700,000, and the sad news is that we do not know when the phone will be available for purchase yet. Three days from today, the phone will be unveiled in the Indian market.
