We know so little about the Realme 5 and Realme 5 Pro, which will debut in India August 20. Until recently, that is.
(Update, August 20: The two smartphones have been launched! See Meet the Realme 5, Realme 5 Pro with 4 rear cameras.)

Not only have we learned of their design (see above) and key specs, but we’ve also known that one of them — the non-Pro model — will be priced under ₹10,000 (around P7,367 or $140). This will make the Realme 5 the first quad-camera smartphone in that segment in the Southern Asian country.

Realme 5 Pro
The higher-specced phone in the series boasts a 48-megapixel Sony IMX586. The sensor is paired with an ultra-wide-angle lens with a 119-degree field of view; a super macro lens with a 4cm focal length; and portrait lens.

The Realme 5 Pro gets a 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor
It is powered by a still-undisclosed Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and has a battery that supports 20-watt VOOC Flash Charge 3.0 fast-charging technology, allowing you to get 55% of juice in just 30 minutes.
In the Philippines, its predecessor — the Realme 3 Pro — was initially sold for P12,990 ($246) for the 4GB/64GB variant and P14,990 ($284) for the unit with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage.
The cheaper of the two features four rear cameras as well, with the main one a 48-megapixel sensor, too — just not a Sony IMX586. However, the primary lens does have an f/1.8 aperture and a 1.25um pixel size, which, in theory, should be great for taking low-light pictures.
The former OPPO sub-brand has confirmed that the non-Pro model has a Snapdragon chip inside also, but has stopped short of saying what it is. However, a listing on cross-platform processor benchmark Geekbench already revealed yesterday an RMX1911 smartphone with Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 and 4GB of RAM.
The Realme 5 is also verified to carry a 5,000mAh battery, the company’s biggest yet.

5,000mAh battery? Check
In the Philippines, the 3GB/32GB, 3GB/64GB, and 4GB/64GB variants of its predecessor — the Realme 3, obviously — were priced at P6,990 ($133), P7,990 ($152), and P9,990 ($190), respectively, at launch.
