- Realme V5 will be the next smartphone from Realme's kitty to have a new camera design
- Realme V5 will have a punch-hole display and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
- It will go official in China on August 3 exclusively.
Realme V5 is set to launch on August 3. After some teasers that have revealed the quad-camera setup and some other key specifications, Realme V5 will go official in the Chinese market initially. With Realme V5, the company is also going for another new camera design after it did the same with the Realme C11. The smartphone will be the first one under the new V-series.
In a Weibo post, Realme announced it is bringing the V5 to China on August 3. The company also shared a series of teasers for the V5 showing the device in its entirety. The fresh teasers reiterate an L-shaped quad-camera setup at the back, which looks like the ones seen on Samsung Galaxy M-series smartphones. There is a fingerprint sensor on the power button of the smartphone and a punch-hole setup on the display. There is also a big Realme branding on the rear panel, much like what we saw on the Narzo 10A.
The teasers, however, do not divulge the information on what the Realme V5 will pack inside. But thanks to the TENAA listing of the Realme V5, we already know there will be a 48-megapixel main sensor on the back accompanied by an 8-megapixel ultrawide sensor and two 2-megapixel sensors for macro and portrait photography. On the front, the Realme V5 is said to come with a 16-megapixel camera for selfies. The smartphone is also confirmed to be a 5G smartphone, which means there could either be a Snapdragon or a Dimensity chipset under the hood.
Moreover, the Realme V5 is purported to feature a 6.5-inch Full-HD+ LCD display, according to the tipster Digital Chat Station. The smartphone could also pack a 5000mAh battery with 30W fast charging. The Realme Narzo series comes with 5000mAh battery presently while the company is also introducing its first 6000mAh battery smartphone, Realme C15 in the Indonesian market on July 28. The Realme C15 will also feature 18W fast charging on it.
For now, it is not clear whether the Realme V5 will make it to other markets or not, given it features 5G support and there are only a few countries that support 5G currently, India not being one of them. Maybe Realme will launch the V5 in India, just like how it launched the X50 Pro 5G, even though 5G seems far-fetched right now.
Realme V5 launch event will begin at 2 pm Beijing time on August 3.
