realme 5s launches in Malaysia at RM799

The middle child in between the realme 5 and 5 Pro is here.

realme Malaysia has recently launched the realme 5s that boasts a 48MP AI Quad Camera setup and a 5000mAh battery. It is the latest addition to the realme 5 series, which also consists of the previous realme 5 and the realme 5 Pro smartphones.

The realme 5s is most similar to the realme 5 in terms of the exterior design but it is indeed more of a middle child whose specifications are a step above the realme 5 but slightly below the realme 5 Pro.

The realme 5s is developed for users who are looking for the camera prowess of the 5 Pro but prefer the battery life of the realme 5, which is also at 5000mAh.

An Affordable Smartphone

The realme 5s is priced at RM799 and comes in two striking colours, Crystal Blue and Crystal Red. It is also configured at 4GB RAM and 128GB ROM.

Aside from the 48MP Quad Camera setup that is similar to the 5 Pro, the realme 5s practically shares almost all of the specifications of the realme 5, which includes:
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 655 processor
- 6.5-inch IPS LCD display at 720 x 1600 resolution, 20:9 ratio (269 ppi density)
- 5000mAh battery

Basically, you can sum it up as a realme 5 that possesses the 5 Pro's camera.
