Realme 5s: Specifications and features
Starting things off with the display of the device, the Realme 5s sports a 6.5-inch IPS LCD HD+ display which gives out a resolution of 720 x 1600 Pixels and a 270 pixels per inch pixel density. There is a waterdrop notch at the top of the display. Owing to the fact that the device features a notch, the screen to body ratio is 89%.
The Realme 5s is available in three color variants – Crystal Blue, Crystal Purple, and Crystal Red.
At the back, we get a quad rear camera setup (48MP + 8MP + 2MP + 2MP) and a 13MP selfie snapper finds its place underneath the waterdrop notch.
For biometrics, the Realme 5s comes with a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. That, however, is not the only way to unlock the device as it comes with the provision of facial unlock as well.
Powering the Realme 5s is an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 chipset which is coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of internal storage. There is a scope for expansion with the help of an external SD card.
As far as the OS is concerned, the Realme 5s runs on Android 9 Pie out of the box with ColorOS 6 on top of it.
A big 5,000mAh battery fuels the Realme 5s. Sadly enough, we get a dated USB 2.0 charging port coming up with the device. Thankfully enough, the 3.5mm headphone jack is still there.
