realme Q5, Q5 Pro with flagship 5G Snapdragon chipsets official

realme Q5

After many teasers and leaks, the realme Q5 and Q5 Pro have made their official debuts in China today. The later is a flagship killer, packing a powerful Snapdragon 870 chipset and flaunting a 120Hz AMOLED E4 Full HD+ display.

The vanilla version is not bad either with its Snapdragon 695 processor and 120Hz LCD screen. The two smartphones run the latest realme UI 3.0 software that is based on Android 12 out-of-the-box.

Up to 8GB RAM and 256GB storage are included, and users have the option to further expand the RAM (by enabling Dynamic RAM Expansion) and the storage (by inserting microSD card). Only the Pro model has a microSD slot, however.

The realme Q5 Pro has a checkerboard pattern design on its glass back. Both device have triple rear cameras and front-facing cameras inside their punch-holes.

They draw their power from 5000mAh batteries, with the former supporting 60W fast charging and the later 80W fast charging.
