Smartphone purveyor realme has only been in the market since last year but they’ve certainly been making waves with a slew of value-packed phones. Their recent launch of the realme 5 Pro and the realme 5 phones, both of which were highly affordable phones in their respective price ranges made quite a stir especially with their asking price.
A couple of days ago, the realme 5 Pro was made available for general sale in Malaysia at realme stores and dealers nationwide on 12 October and the response was impressive to say the least with extensive queues for the phone. According to realme, their realme 5 Pro was sold out in 24 hours the moment it hit the market.
“Today, realme 5 Pro was sold out on its first sale day and we would like to extend our gratitude to fans who are now owners of the realme 5 Pro. Here at realme Malaysia, we will continuously bring in more leap forward technology and lifestyle products to our fans here in Malaysia as everyone deserves to enjoy realme’s leap-forward experience,” said Tiffany Teh, Brand Manager of realme Malaysia.
To refresh your memory, the realme 5 Pro is a successor to last year’s realme 3 Pro and sports a rear 48-MP quad camera array, a 6.3-inch FHD+ display up front, a Snapdragon 712 SoC, 8GB RAM and 128GB of storage. The front comes with a 16-MP selfie camera and the whole affair is juiced by a 4,035mAh battery via a USB Type-C port with VOOC 3.0 Flash Charge. In Malaysia, the realme 5 Pro retails for RM1,099.
Those looking for a more affordable option will likely veer towards the realme 5 which has prices starting from RM599 and has a more modest but nonetheless solid array of hardware.
