Realme 5i India Launch to Come with 3 Surprise Announcements, Find More Details


Realme is all set to launch the Realme 5i smartphone in the Indian market tomorrow. And, it looks like the Realme 5i’s launch isn’t going to be the only announcement at the brand’s event scheduled for the 9th January. Madhav Sheth, Realme’s CEO, has announced on Twitter that the brand has planned three surprise announcements for tomorrow’s event.

Since the three announcements are going to be a surprise, the brand hasn’t revealed any details regarding them. Realme hasn’t left any clue either in its tweet, which the brand usually does. If Realme had planned to launch something big, like a smartphone or a fitness tracker, it would have teased those devices by now, which it didn’t. So, I think the three announcements are most probably going to the new color variants or new memory configurations for its existing devices.

As for the Realme 5i, the device is no more undercover. The brand unveiled it for the first time yesterday, in Vietnam. So, we now have its specs, which I have mentioned below for you to check out. Going by the specs sheet, the Realme 5i seems to be a slightly trimmed-down variant of the Realme 5.

However, the differences between the Realme 5i and the Realme 5 are so minute that it doesn’t make sense for the brand to launch the Realme 5i in markets that already have Realme 5 on sale. In my opinion, the Realme 5i that is set to launch in India is going to be a completely different device than the Realme 5i that has launched in Vietnam. Well, since the India launch is set for tomorrow, we don’t have to wait too long to know the details of the Realme 5i.
