Realme is gearing up to launch its upcoming Realme 5 series of smartphones on August 20. Ahead of the official announcement, the company is teasing the soon to be announced handsets. In a tweet, the smartphone manufacturer confirmed that the Realme 5 will be backed by a massive 5000mAh battery, which is touted to deliver “Unprecedented Battery life.” In addition, in a separate tweet, the company said that the Realme 5 Pro will support VOOC Flash Charge 3.0 tech. However, it is not clear what will be the battery capacity on the Pro variant.
Realme has already confirmed that its upcoming handsets will feature a quad rear-camera setup. The Realme 5 Pro will sport a 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor as its primary camera module on the rear. A dedicated microsite of the handset on Flipkart not only suggests that it will be available via the online retailer, but also confirms the presence of an ultra-wide lens with 119-degree field of view, a Super Macro lens with a 4cm microscopic focal length and a fourth lens that will assist in capturing portrait images. While we will be covering the launch and will bring you all the official details in real-time, there have been sightings and reports about the upcoming Realme handsets.
The Realme 5 recently surfaced on Geekbench, where some of its key specifications were revealed. However, we suggest you take the info with a pinch of salt since they are not from an official source. The listing hints at a 4GB RAM variant of the phone that’s running on a 1.8 processor, which is rumoured to be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 SoC. The device managed to score 1525 points in Geekbench’s single-core tests, and 5948 in the multi-core tests.
Previously, the company’s CEO, Madhav Sheth, announced that the company has a new phone in its pipeline that is equipped with Samsung’s Bright GW1 sensor. This sensor has a 64MP resolution and uses Samsung’s ISOCELL technology to capture images. We got our hands on a prototype phone, and you can read our first impressions about it here.
