Realme is gradually spreading its tentacles into Europe. The Old Continent even obtained the Realme X2 Pro prior India, what is one of its largest markets. Currently, the company has reported the more affordable Realme 5 just in time for the holidays.
The Realme 5 lands in Europe with a price tag tag of €169 and that gets you the 4GB RAM+128GB variant. That isn’t too bad considering the exact same variant sells for INR 10,999 (~€139) in India. The smartphone will be out there in Crystal Blue and Crystal Purple.
The Realme 5 has a 6.5–inch Mini-drop FullScreen display with an HD+ resolution. It is powered by the Snapdragon 665 processor and sports a 5000mAh battery.
There are four digital cameras on the back of the phone – a 12MP f/1.8 base scanner, an 8MP ultrawide angle digital camera, a 2MP portrait digital camera, and a 2MP 4cm macro digital camera. There is a 13MP scanner in front for selfies.
The Realme 5 has a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, Dual-SIM support, and a dedicated MicroSD card tray. It runs Android Pie with ColorOS on top. For connectivity, you get a MicroUSB port, an audio jack, and Bluetooth 5.0.
Realme says the smartphone will be on sale at 22:00 CET on November 27 for €159. So you may perhaps want to wait till then to get it for fewer. We don’t know if the another Realme smartphones sold in Europe will be discounted however there is no harm in checking.
The Realme Europe page says they presently only ship to Belgium, France, Italy, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain, and the United Kingdom only.
