realme 5i smartphone in the PHP 6K segment

Realme Philippines starts 2020 with a new smartphone and a successful wearable launch

It will surprise you to know that the latest launch of  realme Philippines is an affordable quad-camera battery king realme 5i. The realme 5i comes in two stunning colors – Aqua Blue and Forest Green – to suit the different tastes of Filipinos.

The realme 5i is the first in the PHP6K segment to pack quad-camera technology, a powerful Snapdragon processor and a large-capacity battery. With its high-tier features, the realme 5i makes optimized smartphone experience attainable to tech-savvy yet budget-conscious Filipinos.

I expect the the realme 5i will achieve the same success as the 5 series, which had a total global shipment of more than 5.5 million units in 2019. The preceding members of the 5 series, the realme 5 and 5 Pro, accounted for 40 percent of realme Philippines’ sales for the third quarter of 2019. In fact my sister bought two realme 5 pro. She is so happy with its performance and camera.


Best-value quad-camera hero for content creators

As the most attainable quad-camera battery king, the realme 5i is designed to propel the goals of young aspiring content creators. The realme 5i packs powerful imaging in its price segment with a quad-camera setup comprising a 119-degree ultra-wide-angle 8MP lens, 12MP main camera, 2MP portrait lens and 2MP ultra-macro lens, perfect for both photography beginners and experts. The realme 5i’s upgraded imaging algorithm lets users 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. These features result in quality videos worthy of online posting.


Realme Philippines say the design of the realme 5i is targeted at the young market, featuring a slim body with realme’s latest sunrise aesthetic. But I believe even the young at heart like myself will enjoy this smartphone.  The grainy texture on the back cover is processed by the industry leading German five-axis precision radium carving machine, creating a stunning visual experience after a 600-minute polish.



Built with an octa-core Snapdragon 665 AIE processor

The realme 5i is packed with an 11nm octa-core Snapdragon 665 AIE processor, making it the first smartphone in the PHP6K to run on this processor. With this third-generation Qualcomm AI Engine and a clock speed of 2.0GHz, the realme 5i guarantees enhanced gaming-class performance to enable every gamer uninterrupted use without the fear of lagging.

Complementing this powerful processor is a massive 5,000mAh battery that provides the longest standby time in its price segment at 30 days. With this amount of battery juice, users can enjoy long gaming hours and entertainment. The realme 5i has also been fortified with fireproof protective separation and triple precautions to guarantee battery safety.

The realme 5i comes with the ColorOS 6.1 to allow users to activate dark mode for better focus and a more vibrant foreground. Additionally, the realme 5i is also lined up for the upcoming realme UI upgrade with Android 10 integrated, the latest software update will enhance user experience through a more intuitive control and additional features.
