Alongside the Realme 5 Pro, the emerging tech brand also launched the more affordable Realme 5 in the Philippines.
The Realme 5 will try to be one of the most appealing devices in its category. For under Php10k, this one already offers a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor, up to 128GB of storage, and a whopping 5,000mAh battery.
Just like the Realme 5 Pro, it also has a unique design on the back, as well as a quad-camera setup. But this time, the 48-megapixel sensor was downgraded to a 12-megapixel one.
It also has a 13-megapixel selfie camera, sitting in a waterdrop notch on top of the 6.5-inch HD+ screen.
The Realme 5 will be available in the Philippines for a starting price of Php7,990 for the 3GB/64GB model, while the 4GB/128GB variant will be at Php9,990. It will go on sale in Realme stores nationwide starting October 4.
A 3GB/32GB model will also arrive exclusively on Lazada for Php6,990.
