Realme is starting the year right by releasing a feature-packed midrange phone, the Realme V15 5G.
The Realme V15 5G is powered by the popular MediaTek Dimensity 800U octa-core processor, complete with a copper tube for cooling. It also has a 4,310mAh battery with 50W fast charging support. As a bonus, it comes with a faster 65W fast charging, like what its sister company did with the Reno 5 4G.
Obviously, the key feature here is connectivity. It has dual-mode 5G for SA/NSA, dual-band WiFi, and Bluetooth 5.1.
The screen on the front uses a 6.4-inch FHD+ AMOLED panel. No 90Hz or 120Hz refresh rate, but with a smooth 180Hz touch sampling rate. It also has Dirac and Hi-Res audio, but no stereo speakers.
We then have a triple camera setup on the back, led by a 64-megapixel main shooter and an 8-megapixel ultra-wide. While on the front, you can spot a punch-hole on the top left for the 16-megapixel selfie camera.
It will ship with Android 10-based Realme UI, but being a 2021 smartphone, it would receive the Android 11-based Realme UI 2.0 in the coming months.
The Realme V15 5G has a price of CNY1,499 (around Php11,100) for the 6GB/128GB, while the 8GB/128GB is at CNY1,999 (around Php14,900). It will be initially available in China and may arrive in markets like the Philippines under a different name.
