Last year has been a great year for Realme and the company will try to repeat this year too. On the 9th of this month, Realme is going to reveal its first smartphone of 2020 which is Realme 5i. Realme 5i is basically a smaller version of Realme 5. It is exactly the same with some changes. The phone is now officially teased on Flipkart, revealing its specification that we almost already knew about it.
Display & Design
The smartphone has a 6.5 inches mini drop display. In terms of resolution the smartphone would definitely offer HD+ resolution as it is a kind of entry-level smartphone and in 2019 also Realme 3i spots the same.Design-wise there introducing new design on the smartphone that they called sunrise design. One thing is clear that it does not have any diamond-cut design like Realme 5.
In terms of performance than the smartphone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 chipset which is the same chipset that we get in Realme 5 and many other mid-range smartphones. So, performance-wise we would not face any issues.
Coming to the camera department, then it has a quad-camera setup and an 8 Megapixel selfie camera. The smartphone has 12 Megapixel main sensor of aperture f/1.8. The secondary one is 8 Megapixel wide-angle lens of aperture f/2.2 which offers the 118-degree field of view. The third one is a 2 Megapixel depth sensor that delivers 6 different portrait styles. The last one is a 2 Megapixel macro lens of 4cm shooting distance. So, it is good to have at least a macro lens at this price range.
To juice the smartphone, Realme is providing us a 5000 mAh battery with 10 W charger. It has all the basic sensors and a fingerprint scanner mounted at the rear of the smartphone.
Personally, the smartphone is a good combination for those who have limited budgets. Meanwhile, the smartphone is a good choice for basic gaming use like SD 665 is definitely going to give you good gaming experience along with a massive 5000 mAh battery. Also, the quad-camera setup that we saw in Realme 5 is really good according to the price and like it as almost same structure, we would definitely going to get the best camera smartphone at this price range.

Many websites are saying that it will cost 11k for the base variant but according to us, the base variant will be priced at around 8k, as it has Realme 5s for the price tag of 10k.
