The TENAA listings of the Realme RMX2111 and the RMX2112 that we talked about in the article below have now been updated with their images and key specifications. The design and specifications listed on TENAA for both the device seems to be the same, which suggests that they are two different variants of one smartphone.
Now, the design of the RMX2111 and RMX2112 shown in their images from TENAA matches with the design of the Realme V5 from its teaser images. So, it is highly likely that the RMX2111 and RMX2112 are (two variants of) the Realme V5.
According to the listing of the Realme V5 on TENAA, the device has a 6.5-inch TFT display with Full HD+ resolution. The phone is powered by an octa-core CPU with a base frequency of 2.0GHz. The listing mentions that the phone will be available in 6GB and 8GB RAM options, and 128GB and 256GB storage options. On the software side of things, the phone runs on the Android 10 operating system.
The TENAA listing of the Realme V5 reveals that he phone has a 48MP + 8MP + 2MP + 2MP quad-camera setup at the rear and a 16MP front camera. As you can see in the listing, the phone is backed by a 4900mAh battery, measures 162.2 x 75.1 x 9.1mm, weighs 194 grams, and packs 5G connectivity.
The original story follows…
Realme has so far launched C, U, X, Q, and Narzo series smartphones. Today, the CMO of Realme, Xu Qi Chase, has announced through a post on Weibo that the brand will soon be launching a smartphone under V-series, the V5.
Realme V5 officially confirmed
The announcement post of the Realme V5 is accompanied by a teaser image of the smartphone. This image shows that the phone has a quad-camera at the rear with an LED flash. The quad-camera module has a ‘48MP AI camera’ branding, suggesting that the main camera in this setup is a 48MP sensor. The bottom portion of the image has 5G written on it, confirming that the Realme V5 comes with 5G connectivity. The post on Weibo, according to the social media website, was made from ‘V5 Flash Charge,’ hinting that the phone has Flash Charge fast charging.
The image also shows that the phone has a display with a punch-hole mounted to the top-left corner of the screen. The right-hand side of the device seems to have recessed cutout, suggesting that it could be a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. Although we aren’t sure about it. The volume buttons and SIM card tray are located on the left-hand side of the device. The Realme V5 shown in the image has a silver color scheme, confirming that it will be one of the color options on offer. The rear panel of the device has Realme written on it vertically, giving the device a unique look. Here are some artistic images of the Realme V5 from the brand.
Two smartphones from Realme (could be two different variants of one smartphone), RMX2111 and RMX2112, have recently been spotted on TENAA, MIIT, and 3C certification platforms. We are speculating that one of these smartphones is the Realme V5. We had also come across a TENAA listing of another smartphone from Realme, RMX2121, recently, but we are sure that is not the Realme V5 as the Realme V5 shown in the teaser images has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, whereas, the RMX2121, as per its TENAA listing, doesn’t have a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.
There haven’t been any other leaks of the Realme V5 so far. Therefore, we don’t have any additional information regarding the features and specifications of the smartphone other than what Realme has revealed today through the teaser.
That being said, the specs revealed through the official image suggests that the Realme V5 is a mid-range smartphone, somewhere in the price bracket of the Realme 6 and the Realme 6 Pro. Considering that Realme has teased the device, the development of the device seems to have been completed. And if so, the Realme V5 could break cover anytime now.
