After the official unveiling of the Realme 5i in Vietnam today, the company will release this smartphone in India on January 9th. The Realme 5 series (Realme 5 and Realme 5 Pro) recently hit India in August last year. In November 2019, the company released the Realme 5s with a 48MP camera. This turns out to be the major difference between the Realme 5 and Realme 5s. Now, the upcoming Realme 5i appeared on Geekbench with some of its key configurations.
According to reports, the Realme 5i comes with a 5000 mAh battery and rear four-camera design. The Realme 5i phone is the fourth phone in the Realme 5 series. This series already have Realme 5, Realme 5 Pro and Realme 5s. In 2019, its global sales exceed 5.5 million units. In addition, this phone will use a 6.5-inch screen and a 5000mAh battery.
Realme 5i recently appeared on Geekbench website. Geekbench shows that this smartphone (version number RMX2030) will come with a Snapdragon 665 SoC, with 4GB of RAM, Android 9 Pie (probably ColorOS 6). It scored 1,543 and 5,602 points on Geekbench 4’s single-core and multi-core tests, respectively. On Geekbench 5, its single-core and multi-core scores are 314 and 1389 points, respectively.
Apart from the listing date, the company has not revealed any details of the Realme 5i. However, this smartphone has appeared on the website of a Vietnamese retailer. The listing shows that this smartphone is basically the same as the 5, except that the selfie camera has been downgraded, and it does not use a crystal design. We are not sure why Realme rebrands its phones for various markets although they have the exact same features and design.
