The company has shared a video confirming that these phones will have a waterdrop notch display with slim bezels and some thicker chin. Further, if we talk about display size, a leak by some Chinese tipster reveals that the Realme 5 will sport a 6.5-inch HD+ display.
Realme 5 Cameras
It is already known to us that Realme 5 series will come with a quad-camera setup. It will include an ultrawide angle, a super macro, and a portrait camera apart from the main sensor. Flipkart reveals that Realme 5’s primary camera will have an f/1.8 aperture lens. It will have a 119-degree ultra-wide lens. There is no info about selfie camera as of now.
Realme 5 Processor
The company has said that Realme 5 will come with a powerful Qualcomm chipset that will be 1st-time launched in India. Flipkart has also teased it as a new best-in-segment processor. According to the recent Geekbench listing, the Realme 5 will be powered by the Snapdragon 665, which seems legit now. The listing also revealed 4GB RAM and Android 9 Pie.
Realme 5 Battery
Realme 5 will pack a massive 5,000 mAh battery. This will make it the biggest battery unit ever on a Realme smartphone. However, it is not yet clear if it will also support VOOC 3.0 just like Realme 5 Pro.
