If accurate, we believe these specs will be limited to the higher-end (and more expensive) Realme 6 Pro variant. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 712-based Realme 5 Pro with 8GB RAM, four rear cameras, and a 4,035mAh battery that supports 20-watt fast charging was priced at P13,990 (around $274) in the Philippines at launch.
