Realme 5, 5 Pro with four rear cameras are now official

Realme recently unveiled the Realme 5 and Realme 5 Pro in India. The handsets come with four cameras, huge batteries, and pocket friendly price tags.

I guess you can say that Realme has done it again — offering good value for money by pairing an attractive spec sheet with an affordable price tag. Their latest offering, the Realme 5 series, is no different. And it comes in two flavors — the Realme 5 and the 5 Pro.
