realme’s newest addition to its 5 series is finally official in the Philippines.
Billed as the “quad-camera battery king,” the realme 5i packs powerful imaging courtesy of the four-camera setup at the back. This is composed of a 119-degree ultra-wide-angle 8MP lens, a 12MP main camera, a 2MP portrait lens, and a 2MP ultra-macro lens.
The phone’s imaging algorithm also lets you take excellent night photos with a wider view with the Nightscape 2.0’s ultra-wide angle mode. For video recording, the realme 5i supports 4K resolution with 240fps slow motion and stabilization capabilities.
The realme 5i is powered by an 11nm octa-core Snapdragon 665 AIE chip with a clock speed of 2.0GHz. Complementing this is a humongous 5,000mAh battery that realme claims has a standby time of 30 days.
The handset is available in two stunning colors: Aqua Blue and Forest Green. While it has ColorOS 6.1 out of the box, the realme 5i is also lined up for the upcoming realme UI upgrade with Android 10 integrated.
