We’re taking a quick look at the Realme 5 Pro. The handset is Realme’s entrant to the world of 48MP cameraphones.
The midranger is set to officially launch in the country. Unfortunately, Realme Philippines has not yet revealed its official price. But as with all Realme products (and based on international pricing), we’re expecting the handset to punch beyond its price point.
Right off the bat, the first thing you’ll notice with the Realme 5 Pro is how handsome it looks. Realme is doing a great job improving the design with every release. This one comes with a modern and sleek body.
The back panel has a diamond pattern that changes from different shades of blue and violet. It is made of a plastic polycarbonate material which in the hand feels substantial and solid.
At the front, the Realme 5 Pro comes with a 6.3-inch full HD+ IPS display with a 19.5:9 ratio. It has a resolution of 2340 x 1080 and a pixel density of 409 ppi. It also sports a dewdrop notch for the 16MP f/2.0 front camera. The earpiece is right above it.
Looking around the device, you have the power button on the right side, the volume rockers on the left, and a headphone jack, the mic, a USB Type-C port, and a single volume grill at the bottom.
Powering the Realme 5 Pro is an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 processor. Our review unit comes with 8GB RAM and 128GB of storage. Take note that the storage is the UFS 2.1 variety, which should improve performance.
As for the battery, it has a 4,035 mAh battery which is now common among smartphones in this range. But charging should be fairly quick with the 20W VOOC fast charging support.
The Realme 5 Pro comes with four rear cameras — a 48MP f/1.8 main, an 8MP f/2.2 Ultra-wide, a 2MP f/2.4 Macro, and a 2MP f/2.4 Depth. The main camera is equipped with a Sony IMX 586 sensor. For selfies, there’s the aforementioned 16MP front camera on the dewdrop notch.
And that’s it for our quick look at the Realme 5 Pro. We’re still working on our full review, so stay tuned for that. Hopefully, Realme Philippines sheds some light on the phone’s official pricing and release date soon.
