The realme V5 has recently launched in China. The budget midrange handset is one of the cheapest 5G capable smartphones at the moment.

Check out the pricing. The realme C5 retails for CNY 1,399 (around PHP 9,900) for the 6GB + 128GB model, and CNY 1,899 (~PHP 13,400) for the 8GB + 128GB model.

Unfortunately, its a China only phone at the moment. But we’re hopeful for availability in the Philippines soon, since our local telcos have already launched their 5G services. And that means there will be a need for affordable 5G phones.

The realme V5 is definitely feature packed. For starters, its 5G-capable. The handset is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 720 5G chipset with 6GB or 8GB RAM and 128GB UFS 2.1 storage.
