The Realme V5 is powered by 7nm Dimensity 720 chip by Mediatek, coupled with 6 GB or 8 GB RAM, while storage is set at 128GB, with optional expansion via the microSD slot.

As per the camera department, you will get four cameras on the back – a 48MP F/1.8 main one and an 8MP ultrawide-angle cam with 119-degree FoV being the more interesting pair. The setup also has a macro sensor to take shots up to 4 cm, and a depth sensor to assist the Portrait mode for fancy background blur.

Looking at the front, the Realme V5 is built around a 6.5-inch LCD with 20:9 ratio, 90Hz refresh rate, and 180Hz touch sampling rate. There is a single punch hole in the upper left corner for the selfie camera that has a 16MP sensor.

The Realme V5 also packs a 5,000 mAh battery with 30W fast-charging through the USB-C port. Realme promises 0-100% in 65 minutes, and you can use the device in the same time with the screen on full brightness – as VOOC generates far less heat than most competing standards. The fingerprint scanner found its way on the side, doubling as a power key

The 5G capabilities include support for the sub-6 GHz standard and works both on SA and NSA networks. Realme has a feature called Smart 5G that switches between 5G and LTE when convenient to save the battery life and provide smooth online experience.
