Realme 5 Pro hands-on image reveals rear-facing fingerprint scanner

A couple of days are now left for the launch of Realme 5 series & if you don’t know, the Realme 5 & Realme 5 Pro are coming with Quad Cameras & aggressive pricing. We already know that Realme 5 has Snapdragon 665 & will be priced under Rs 10,000, which is mind-blowing. Now, the first hands-on image of the Realme 5 Pro has leaked via Weibo that reveals something interesting.

It was rumoured that like the Realme X, the 5 Pro would launch with an in-display fingerprint scanner but as this hands-on image shows, the phone has a rear-facing fingerprint scanner. Now, this most likely means that there is an LCD panel instead of an AMOLED. Also, while the back panel seems to be made out of glass, it is most likely plastic.

That’s normal because Realme has to cut some corners in order to launch this device at a super aggressive price tag. The Realme 5 Pro showed up on Geekbench recently with Snapdragon 710 SOC, but some sources claim that there is Snapdragon 712. There isn’t much of a difference between Snapdragon 710 and 712 except for the fact that the latter has clock speed up to 2.3GHz compared to 2.2GHz of the former.

We know that Realme 5 Pro has a Quad Camera setup on the rear that includes a primary 48MP Sony IMX 586 sensor, a secondary ultra-wide camera, a third Macro camera & a fourth Depth Sensor. There is a waterdrop notch on the front for sure since adding a pop-up camera adds to the overall cost & this will also affect the sales of Realme X.

The launch is happening on August 20 in India.
