To keep the pricing of the 5i low, the Chinese brand has gone with a HD+ display again, and it’s a 6.52-inches panel with a water-drop notch. The screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3+. The selfie lens in the notch is an 8MP snapper.
The Realme 5i runs on ColorOS 6.1 based on Android 9 Pie. The company has promised to bring Realme UI, with a near stock Android experience to the phone soon. The device comes with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage and a triple card tray with a dedicated microSD card slot. The device is backed by a 5,000 mAh battery that charges over a micro USB port and supports 10W charging.
The Realme 5i has a fingerprint scanner on the back panel, and also boasts a quad-camera setup comprising a 12MP Sony IMX386 sensor with an f/1.8 aperture that supports Electronic Image Stabilization, an 8MP wide-angle lens, a 2MP depth sensor, a 2MP macro lens and an LED flash.
Instead of the company’s renowned diamond-cut pattern, the Realme 5i sports a sunrise design which makes it look like there are sun rays shining from the bottom toward the top.
