Realme-5-Pro-Features

Realme is keeping the momentum going by releasing the new Realme 5 and 5 Pro.

Following up the Realme 3 and 3 Pro, both the Realme 5 and 5 Pro will bring changes in the camera, processor, design, and battery departments.

Realme-5

Let’s start with the Realme 5. As expected, this is going to be the more affordable model. Which is why we’re only getting an HD+ resolution screen. On the upside, it’s relatively bigger at 6.5-inch and will feature an enormous 5,000mAh battery.

The device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor. The second device to have this chipset, right next to the Xiaomi Mi A3. You can get it with up to 4GB/128GB of RAM and storage configuration.

The Realme 5 also sports a quad-camera setup on the back. There’s a 12-megapixel primary shooter, an ultra-wide-angle 8-megapixel sensor, a portrait lens, and lastly, a 2-megapixel macro camera that can go really close at 4cm from the subject.

Both devices will also offer crystal design with a nano holographic color, which is reminiscent of the OPPO F9 from last year.

Realme-5-Pro-Specs

The Realme 5 Pro, being the more premium option, will feature a sharper FHD+ screen, but with a smaller size of 6.3-inches. Its smaller body also translated to a downsized 4,035mAh battery. Still, this should provide a sleeker look and design, proving its superiority over the former.

Under the hood, we have a more powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 processor, a step up from the Realme 3 Pro. You can get this device with up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

The VOOC 3.0 20W charger was also kept. But this time, you’d be charging it via a USB Type-C port. Both models are also now splash resistant.

Probably the main highlight here is its quad-camera setup. It shares an identical camera setup to the vanilla model. But this time, the 12-megapixel lead sensor was upgraded to a more capable 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 primary camera.
