The Realme 5 Pro is about to make its official debut in the Philippines. Ahead of that, the company’s local arm provided us with a review unit to check out. But before we provide you our final verdict, we want to share out initial thoughts about it.
Right at first holding the Realme 5 Pro you’d immediately fall in love with its attractive and sleek looks. It feels relatively thin at 8.9mm and lightweight at 184g, considering that all the hardware crammed inside.
Also, the new diamond-like accents on the back is a major step-up to the plain design that the Realme 3 Pro has. This new design reacts to light, so the reflections really add more spice to the overall aesthetics.
On the front, we have a large 6.3-inch FHD+ IPS screen, with relatively thin bezels on all sides. Realme also kept the dewdrop notch on the top, which I personally feel more comfortable with than the sketchy pop-up mechanism that other devices have.
Meanwhile, we have a tall strip on the back that houses all of its four cameras. The Realme 3 Pro already has an impressive set of dual cameras, but with the Realme 5 Pro and its quad-camera array, we expect to capture even better cameras on this thing.
The Realme 5 Pro now has a 48-megapixel Sony IMX 586 sensor, versus the Sony IMX 519 on its predecessor.
The 5-megapixel depth-sensor was downgraded to a 2-megapixel one. But this time, we now have an extra 8-megapixel ultra-wide shooter and a dedicated 2-megapixel macro camera. We’re really excited to test its photography features that we might even do a dedicated camera review, so stay tuned for that.
The Realme 5 Pro now has a slightly better Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 octa-core processor, from the Snapdragon 710 on the previous model. What’s exciting here is the storage upgrade to a faster UFS 2.1 on the Realme 5 Pro.

Despite its sleek body, Realme was able to keep the large 4,000mAh battery on the Realme 5 Pro. The best part is, it has 20W VOOC fast charging support, so it should last longer and charge faster.
Well, that’s it for now. We still don’t have the official price for this device just yet, nor its official launch date in the country. But considering Realme Philippines’ aggressive push on marketing its arrival, we expect it to make its local debut in the next couple of weeks.
Once the price becomes official, will be publishing our full review of the Realme 5 Pro to further help you make the purchase decision. So, stay tuned for that.
