That said, it’s pretty clear the Realme 5i will be positioned as the cheapest in the series and should pose as an attractive entry point for consumers looking to upgrade from a feature phone. You might recall that the Realme 5 launched in the Philippines with a starting price of P6,990 or around $138.
