Semi-announcement. Realme Q5x 5G - ultra-cheap five-gee for China

In China, a smartphone quietly appeared in pre-saleRealme Q5x 5G. Information about the smartphone is completely official, but, unfortunately, a little incomplete. In particular, they forgot to tell us the screen resolution. Not only exact, but even approximate. No clue as to what it is. HD+, FHD+ or some other abbreviation.

I do not see exact twins for Realme Q5x 5G.And approximately similar devices - a great many. However, none of them are officially sold in our country. And it's true. Why do we need cheap smartphones with 5G? Well, from what can be found on AliExpress, I can note, for example,
Realme V11 5G (times),
OPPO A55s 5G China (two),
OPPO A55 5G (three)…

Chipset - super popular MediaTek Dimensity 700,We are waiting for 300-350 thousand points in AnTuTu. By the amount of memory, there is only one type so far - 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of permanent memory. There is support for memory cards, a separate tray.

The screen has a diagonal of 6.5″ (102 cm²). The resolution is most likely 700x1600 (270 ppi).

The battery is capacious, 5000 mAh. Charging is not fast, 10 watts.

The front camera will not please us with a high resolution of pictures, only 5 MP. There are two rear cameras, judging by the pictures. But the resolution is named only for the main one - 13 MP.

There is no information about "other" information. Those. theoretically, there may not be a fingerprint scanner. I will assume that USB is still Type-C, and Wi-Fi is probably dual-band. But this is all inaccurate.

But what definitely pleases in any case is the price. Only ¥999 (₽8550, $150) at launch.


Simultaneously with Realme Q5x 5G, its twin Realme V20 5G also appeared on sale. Apparently, the difference is only in the amount of memory.

Realme V20 5G will be sold in two variants, 4+128GB and 8+128GB. The price at the start of sales is ¥1099 (₽9400, $165) and ¥1399 (₽12000, $210), respectively.
