Realme 6i goes official with MediaTek Helio G80 SOC
Just two months after the launch of Realme 5i (in India), Realme 6i was launched today in Myanmar. This once again shows how fast Realme likes to launch successors to its phones. The 6i is a massive upgrade over the 5i since it comes with a much powerful SOC, better cameras, 18W Fast Charging, USB Type-C port etc.
The design is the same as Realme 5i since there is the same waterdrop notch on the front & vertically placed Quad camera setup on the rear. The main highlight is the pattern on the rear. The rear panel is designed by Naoto Fukasawa, a well-known Japanese industrial designer who has worked with Realme to design the ‘Master Edition’ of company’s phones.
Talking about the specs, Realme 6i comes with a 6.5-inch HD+ display on the front & there is MediaTek Helio G80 SOC powering it. This makes the 6i first smartphone in the world to feature this chipset from MediaTek. As the name shows, it sits between the Helio G70 and the Helio G90 SOCs in terms of the performance.
The Quad camera setup on the rear includes a primary 48 Megapixel Samsung sensor, a secondary 8 Megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, a third 2MP Macro Lens & a fourth 2MP depth sensor. On the front, there is a 16 Megapixel selfie shooter.
The Realme 6i features a huge 5,000mAh battery & there is also 18W fast charging support via the Type-C port. Moreover, the phone comes with reverse charging feature. Android 10 based Realme UI runs out of the box.
