Realme, today, has extended its smartphone lineup in Nepal by unveiling the all-new Realme 5i. The device comes with a quad-camera setup, a massive battery, and a sleek design to begin with — mostly resembling the already launched Realme 5.
Firstly, to talk about the phone’s crown jewel, the quad-camera configuration. The Realme 5i boasts a 12MP primary camera with f/1.8 aperture that goes hand on hand with an 8MP ultra-wide sensor with f/2.3 lens and 119-degree FoV, plus a 2MP f/2.4 depth sensor and finally a dedicated 2MP f/2.4 macro lens which can capture images at 4cm distance. The phone’s ultra-wide camera also support Super Night Mode.
All these camera capabilities is handled by a 11nm Snapdragon 665 chipset that features four Kryo 260 Gold and four 260 Silver cores, with Adreno 610 GPU. The memory of the phone includes a 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage with an option for expansion via microSD card slot.
To take a look at the front, we can see a 6.5-inch IPS LCD display with an HD+ resolution — a little bit of a bummer here, but the phone overcomes it with 480 nits of brightness, as claimed. The top sees a teardrop notch that holds an 8MP selfie camera.
Besides camera, the Realme 5i also is a battery champ; a humongous 5,000mAh battery being its unique selling prospect. On top of that, you can make use of its huge capacity by using it as a powerbank, thanks to the reverse wired charging.
The phone supports standard 10W charger but takes its power through a dated microUSB port. But for your sake, Realme has put a 3.5mm headphone jack; one old thing that we still like. It boots on Color OS 6.1 based on Android 9 Pie.
Realme claims that the phone’s battery can handle PUBG up to 9.4 hours or 19.1 hours of YouTube. Furthermore, there’s a special internal and external coating making the device at least splash-proof.
Now about the pricing, the 4/64GB variant of Realme 5i will go on sale for the price of Rs. 20,990 in Nepal. The phone will be available through various online as well as offline retailers in Nepal.
