Realme may launch the world's first MediaTek Helio G80-powered phone soon
Realme has announced that it will introduce the successors to its 5 and 5 Pro to the European market on March 24, 2020. Like many product launches these days, the event will be broadcast online from 10:00 CET. At present, it is not clear how these 2 new phones will be priced in their new region, although the 5 does start at €169 (US$188).
Furthermore, it appears that the 6 and 6 Pro have a new sibling that will launch elsewhere soon. According to what looks like an official Realme poster leaked by Mukul Sharma (or @stufflistings on Twitter), it is to be called the 6i.
The new suffix may suggest that it will be even cheaper than the 6 on its release. On the other hand, it will also apparently debut the MediaTek Helio G80 as a smartphone processor. Its Taiwanese manufacturer introduced it along with its G70 variant in order to confer a "gaming" status on more cost-effective devices.
Interestingly, the alleged Realme poster appears to show a partial world-map with what looks very like the outline of Myanmar superimposed on it. This may indicate that the 6i (which also has a 2019 counterpart) is destined for this arguably unusual choice of inaugural market.
