Realme 5s: Full Specifications and features
Like most of the phones, it also comes with a large display. It has a 6.5 inches display and it is an HD+ display, which comes with 720×1600 pixel resolution. The aspect ratio is 20:9, which gives you a long display. It has an IPS LCD display, which is decent. It is a massive display but the resolution is low and you will also feel that while using the display.
You get Android 9 Pie, which is good but Color OS 6 also comes in it, which can be said a drawback. Latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 11nm SoC is used in this phone with the max 2 GHz clock speed. Adreno 610 will handle all the Graphics but this SoC is not fully made for the gaming.
It has four cameras on the rear side and those are 48+8+2+2 MP camera sensors. The 48 MP is the main sensor and it is a Samsung GM1 sensor. You get an f/1.8 aperture and it comes with the PDAF technology. The 8 MP sensor will capture the ultra-wide shots with f/2.2 aperture.
