Realme has just released the Realme 5i and Realme C3 at a launch event at the University of Central Punjab.  The duo brings strong battery performance and a quad-camera setup on some budget realme Prices, and it will hit store shelves later tonight. Here’s everything you need to know. 

Realme C3

The C3 is Pakistan’s first budget gaming phone. An Helio G70 Processor powers it with a Mali G52 GPU baked into it. The 12nm octa-core processor uses HyperEngine Tech to bring you smoother, snappier gaming experience -- outperforming other SoC’s in its price bracket by a long shot. The chipset is paired with up to 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of native storage (expandable up to 256 GB).

Out front, the display stretches 6.5 inches across and features a dew-drop notch to nestle the front-facing camera. This Mini-drop screen delivers an HD+ resolution and an impressive 89.8% screen-to-body ratio. 

The rear-shell features a triple-camera system housed inside a vertical layout on the top-left corner. The main 12-megapixel camera is AI-augmented and coupled with a 4cm macro sensor and a portrait shooter.  Flanking this camera bump is a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, which Realme claims can unlock your in under 0.27 seconds. It also sports a ‘Sunrise’ gradient design in Frozen Blue and Blazing Red color options. 

The hardware draws power from a 5,000 mAh battery (with 10W fast charging support) and runs on Realme’s own Android-10-based realmeUI. It’ll set you back 20,999 PKR

Realme 5i

The Realme 5i adopts a polished design language, similar to that of Realme C3 but with a natural color palette of Aqua Blue and Forest Green, and a quad-camera setup instead of the aforementioned triple-camera layout. It borrows its 12-megapixel primary lens, portrait, and macro sensors from C3 but combines them with an 8-megapixel 119-degree ultrawide camera.

The Mini-drop screen is also carried over from C3, but it offers a slightly lower 89% screen-to-body ratio. Under the hood, it’s powered by a mid-tier Snapdragon 665 AIE chipset alongside 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of onboard storage. The battery capacity here is 5,000 mAh as well, with support for 10W fast charging.

Instead of the realmeUI, however, it ships with a marginally outdated ColorOS 6.1 (that runs on top of Android Pie). Finally, the Realme Price for the 5i starts from 24,999 PKR.
