Realme 5 and Realme 5 Pro Now Officially Launched


At last, Realme has officially launched its newest smartphone offering officially being called the Realme 5 and Realme 5 Pro. Compared to earlier this year's Realme 3 and Realme 3 Pro series, these next-gen Realme smartphones have a lot of upgrades and new features in tow. One fo the biggest upgrades is found on the rear, both phones now offer quad camera setup with the Realme 5 Pro boasting a primary shooter pegged at 48MP equipped witn Sony IMX586 sensor right out of the box. All cameras on both phones are arranged vertically on the left side of the rear panel.

Speaking of back panel, the Realme 5 and Realme 5 Pro sport a diamond cut design. This particular design looks way better than the previous iterations', at least to me, as it is something that we almost don't see from other brands. Most  of them offers gradient color design that although not that bad at all, they are becoming so common. So a design like this on Realme phones is just a breath of fresh air to the eyes.

Besides the overall physical design, multiple RAM and storage options, both being powered two different Snapdragon processors, and of course both having four rear-facing cameras, the Realme 5 and Realme 5 Pro are completely two different beasts. They have a lot of differences in terms of technical specifications.

While the Realme 5 has only HD+ display as opposed to the Realme 5 Pro variant's Full HD+ display resolution, the non-Pro model has a massive battery at 5000mAh capacity. This makes the biggest battery ever put in a Realme smartphone and the Realme 5 becoming the first one to wield it. However, Realme 5 Pro' 4035mAh comes with a 20W VOOC 3.0 fast charge system which is of course very sweet of a deal. See complete specs below.
