For photography, the Realme 5 has the same quad-camera setup at the back as the ‘Pro’ model, except the primary sensor, which has a 12-megapixel resolution. The front camera is also slightly downgraded, with a 13-megapixel shooter instead of 16-megapixel. Software-wise, the phone boots ColorOS 6.0 atop Android 9 Pie out-of-the-box. The smartphone will be available to purchase in Crystal Blue and Crystal Purple hues.
