The Realme 5s’ processor, display size, camera setup, design, and battery get confirmed with less than four days ahead of the smartphone’s rumored launch in India. The update to the Realme 5 looks to be sharing a lot of the latter’s specs so far.

(Update, November 20: And this one’s official! Read Realme 5s with 48MP camera priced as low as $139 in India.)

Indian online retailer Flipkart revealed that the Realme 5s is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665, which is also used by the Realme 5, a handset that costs as low as P6,990 (around $138) in the Philippines.

The screen is said to be a 6.51-inch HD+ display, meaning there’s no Full HD upgrade here. The screen will be interrupted by a waterdrop-style notch, which will house the rumored 13-megapixel sensor with AI Beauty Mode onboard.

The quad-camera setup will also mainly remain the same. But the primary lens gets a 48-megapixel sensor instead of a 12-megapixel one. The other three shooters will supposedly still be an 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens and two 2-megapixel sensors.

The Realme 5s teaser shows the back will have a fingerprint sensor and a diamond-cut finish with the brand’s logo visible on it. Underneath the hood is a 5,000mAh battery.

Previous rumors claim the device will be protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3+. Memory configuration reportedly starts at 4GB of RAM with 64GB storage. Word has it that the phone will again run on Android 9 Pie with ColorOS 6 on top.

Available in red, purple, and blue, the Realme 5s is tipped to launch alongside the Realme X2 Pro in India this November 20.
