Realme 5 series was launched in August 2019 which include Realme 5 and Realme 5 Pro. It seems the company is now preparing another smartphone for its 5 series. Today we have spotted a new realme device with model number RMX1925 and marketing name as Realme 5s on Thailand’s NBTC website.
Sadly, the NBTC listing has not revealed any details of the device apart from GSM / WCDMA / LTE support, Manufacturer factory as “Realme Chongqing Mobile Telecommunications Corp. Ltd., PR China”, and Country of production as “China”. The model RMX1925 has also received BIS certification on October 18, 2019, which suggest that the phone will arrive in India.
Previously the company used “i” suffix on Realme 3i and it was launched as a watered-down version of the Realme 3. But, It’s the first time Realme will use “s” suffix. Judging the naming strategy, Realme 5s could be launched as an upgrade over the Realme 5 with a better processor (Snapdragon 675?) and camera. Realme 5 has been priced at Rs 9,999 for the base model, so we expect upcoming Realme 5s will be priced around Rs 10,999.
As Realme 5s has obtained certification from the various platform, so, we believe the phone may launch soon.
Talking about the Realme 5 and 5 Pro, both phones come with quad rear cameras and run on ColorOS 6 based Android 9 Pie. The Realme 5 Pro gets a 48MP main camera while Realme 5 gets a 12MP main camera. Other three sensors(8MP ultra-wide-angle, 2MP macro lens and 2MP portrait lens) are the same for both devices.
