It also features Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 is an octa-core chipset, which includes six Kryo 360 silver cores clocked at 1.7GHz and two Kryo 360 gold cores clocked at 2.3GHz. However, there is provision for memory expansion up to 256 GB using a microSD card. In that quad-camera setup, there is a 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 primary sensor with an f/1.8 aperture. It features a 12MP primary sensor with f/1.8 aperture, LED flash, PDAF, EIS an 8MP secondary ultra-wide-angle sensor with f/2.2 aperture, a tertiary 2MP depth sensor and a fourth 2MP macro sensor with f/2,4 aperture. Apart from a regular and wide-angle lens, the other two lenses are super macro and portrait sensors both of which have 2 MP resolutions. Meanwhile, Realme 5 is an affordable option and will cost Rs 9,999 for the 3GB RAM and 32GB storage model. The Realme 5 Pro, on the other hand, will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC along with VOOC fast charging technology. It will also ship with a 20W USB Type-C fast charger in the box.

The Realme 5 Pro has a Snapdragon 712 chipset, 4GB to 8GB of RAM, 64GB to 128GB of expandable storage, and a 4,035mAh battery with 20-watt charging. The prices are Rs 9,999, Rs 10,999 and Rs 11,999 for the 3GB/32GB, 4GB/64GB and the 4GB/128GB variants respectively. Thus, Realme is adding splash resistant to the Realme 5 series to make it stand tall against the "hydrophobic P2i nano-coating" featured on nearly all recently launched Redmi phones.

The device does not have an AMOLED display but instead settles for a 6.3-inch IPS LCD display with FHD+ resolution. The Realme 5 Pro will be available in 4GB/6GB/8GB RAM and 64 or 128GB internal storage options. The 6GB + 64GB and 8GB + 128GB variants will retail at INR.

Bangladesh urged to halt returning Rohingyas
None of the 295 families consulted until now had agreed to go back, said a Bangladesh relief official, Mohammad Abul Kalam. Myanmar, which has defended the brutal crackdown as a counterinsurgency against Rohingya militants, rejected the report.

In terms of camera, the company has put a quad-camera setup on the realme 5 as well, but with a minor change. For the front, the phone has a 13-megapixel sensor with AI beautification mode. It hasn't been long since Realme 3 Pro was the smartphone we compared to the budget king, Redmi Note 7 Pro.

The Realme 5 is packed with a 5,000mAh battery, a huge bump from the 4,230mAh battery found in the Realme 3. One solution to this is to have phones with larger batteries but this also makes the device larger/heavier. The realme 5 will go on sale on August 27 at 12 pm via Flipkart and realme website and just like the realme 5 Pro, it will arrive at the offline stores soon.

Last week, information pertaining to Realme's 4th generation smartphones, the Realme 5 and Realme 5 Pro appeared online, with their hardware having been partially revealed.

One of the major disappointments we had with the Realme 3 Pro was the inclusion of a microUSB port for charging in 2019.
