Realme’s 5 series smartphone lineup may soon be expanded with the launch of the Realme 5i. Even though Realme hasn’t officially confirmed the existence of the smartphone yet, it has been certified by multiple regulatory agencies around the globe.
The Realme 5i has been certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance with the model number RMX2030. While the listing does not confirm the name of the smartphone, it does tell us that the Realme 5i will run on Android 9 Pie out of the box. The smartphone’s NBTC certificate, however, clearly mentions that the RMX2030 will be marketed as the Realme 5i.
In addition to the Wi-Fi Alliance and NBTC, the smartphone has bagged certification from India’s BIS and Indonesia’s TKDN agencies as well. The BIS certification suggests the phone will be launched in India, possibly before any other market.
Sadly, there is nothing that we know about the hardware specifications of the Realme 5i at this point. Its name, however, seems to suggest it will be slotted below the Realme 5 in the company’s lineup. This means we can expect a few downgrades compared to the Realme 5.
The Realme 5, which was launched in August, sports a 6.5-inch IPS LCD display with HD+ resolution. It is powered by an 11nm Snapdragon 665 octa-core processor, with up to 4GB RAM and 128GB onboard storage. Its headline feature is a quad-camera setup with a 12MP main camera, 8MP ultrawide camera, 2MP dedicated macro camera, and a 2MP depth sensor. It remains to be seen if the Realme 5i will also feature a similar quad camera setup.
