Xiaomi, Huawei, OnePlus, HiSense or the most recent Realme. Every day we hear new names of Chinese marches that, far from the low-quality products we were accustomed to perceiving, begin to offer us interesting and very affordable alternatives.
This is the case of the new Realme 5 and Realme 5 Pro , the new phones of the parent company behind the OPPOs, which point to a strong entry into the premium mid-range.
With LCD screens between 6.3 and 6.5 inches, both phones will have an identical design with the presence of a small drop-shaped notch, a rear fingerprint reader, and a quad configuration for their rear cameras.
Yes, we can see however a small difference in its components, varying between Snapdragon 665 and 712 processors, batteries up to 5,000 mAh, and variants up to 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage.
However, it is worth noting that it is the Realme 5 Pro that has the lower screen and battery, although in return the phone will be able to achieve a resolution up to 1080p, and will have a faster charge than the basic model.
But undoubtedly his strength of the Realme 5 lies in his cameras. Despite being mid-range phones, this does not seem to be an impediment to assemble a quadruple rear configuration, which in the case of Realme 5 Pro will have a 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 main lens (reduced to 12 megapixels in the model basic).
Thus, the rest of the lenses will be common for both terminals, with a wide-angle of 8 megapixels and an aperture of 119º; a 2-megapixel TOF sensor; and a 2-megapixel macro lens. As for the front camera, the Realme 5 will feature a 13-megapixel sensor, while the Pro model will increase to a Sony IMX471 16 megapixel lens.
Note that both terminals can record up to 4K at 30 frames per second, although neither has optical image stabilization.
According to the company , both devices will be released first to India on August 27, but it is expected that they will arrive in Spain during the coming months. As for its price, and considering that these are susceptible figures after the currency exchange, Realme 5 will be launched under a price between 125 and 150 euros, while Realme 5 Pro would rise to 176 and 213 euros.
