Announcement. Realme V13 5G - let's save on cameras

The Realme V13 5G smartphone is presented in the Chinese market. Typical middle class with 5G support, very inexpensive. Everything is glorious wherever you look. But they obviously saved money on cameras.

The chipset is my favorite mysterious MediaTekDimensity 700. The one for which I just can't find the AnTuTu test results. But the chip is decent anyway, I'm expecting around three hundred thousand AnTuTu8 points.

They did not become greedy with memory. 8 GB of RAM, 128 or 256 GB of storage. Plus there is support for memory cards - a separate slot.

And the screen is fine too. Standard 6.5 ″ IPS-matrix. Slightly increased (up to 90 Hz) refresh rate is not a record, but nice. The resolution is high, 1080 × 2400 (405 ppi).

And with the battery, too, complete order. Large capacity - 5000 mAh. Charging is not very fast, but still 18 W, and not the standard ten.

Saved, as I said, on cameras.The front camera has a resolution of only 8 MP. Behind the trio 48 + 2 + 2 MP - the main module, macro with a fixed focal length, depth sensor. For clarity, of course, we should wait for at least some reviews and examples of photos. But, most likely, we will not wait for much.

The NFC module is not mentioned, so most likely it is not there. Of the LTE bands of interest to us, only the twentieth is missing. The fingerprint scanner is in the correct position, i.e. from the side.

Chinese prices. ¥ 1,599 (₽18,400, $ 243) for the younger version 8 + 128 GB and ¥ 1,799 (₽20,700, $ 274) for 8 + 256 GB.

The smartphone will be on sale just about.Outside of China, most likely, it will not be officially announced. But it will be on sale on AliExpress, where will it go? (Without pre-installed Google services, of course, but they are put on Realme smartphones without much dancing with tambourines).
