Realme may soon add another member to the Realme 5 series after launching Realme 5 earlier this month. The yet-to-be-announced Realme phone, which was first launched as the Realme 5i and carried the model number RMX 2030, received Wi-Fi Alliance certification, hinting that its launch is imminent. Additionally, Realme 5i has reportedly been certified by Thailand’s NBTC, India’s BIS and Indonesia’s TKDN, confirming that the phone could be launched in India soon, as well as in other Asian countries . However, no concrete information about Realme 5i has been online yet.
Realme 5i’s Wi-Fi Alliance certification listing mentions model number RMX2030 and was awarded the Oppo spin-off on 5 December. According to the Wi-Fi Alliance database, Realme 5i will run Android Pie out-of-the-box. With firmware version RMX2030EX_11_A.08_191130. It is certified to support the Wi-Fi A / B / G / N / AC standard and compatibility with the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands.
DroidShout also noticed that Realme 5i has also been certified in India, Thailand and Indonesia. While the phone’s Wi-Fi certification did not mention its name, the NBTC certification clearly states the model number RMX2030 and the model name Realm 5i. The RMX2030 model number is also seen in the phone’s TKDN certification document. Finally, the phone’s mandatory BIS clearance suggests that it will be launched in India soon, possibly before any other market.
The Realme 5i, as the name suggests, will be another addition to the bread-and-butter Realme 5 series, and can be marketed as a more affordable version of Realme 5. Realme has done the same with the Realme 3 series when it launched Realme 3i, the toned-down version of Realme 3, which became official in July earlier this year. Unfortunately, this is the first time Realme 5i has emerged online, so we are yet to come across any leaks or official teasers from the company.
