Realme is now touted to launch a new phone called the 5i in Vietnam in 2020. A Geekbench listing that might correspond to this phone shows that it runs Android 9.0 on 4GB of RAM and the Snapdragon 665 processor. Therefore, this device might be the brand's first budget offering of the year.

A new leak indicates that Realme is to launch a new phone on January 6, 2020. It is apparently to be called the 5i, which may imply the potential for multiple rear cameras at a good price. On that note, a new entry on the Geekbench 4 website suggests that this phone may indeed be decently cost-effective.

The new set of benchmarking results is for a device called the "realme RMX2030". It is the second such listing with this new model-number convention, suggesting that it pertains to a 2020 phone. The 'RMX2030' is depicted here as having a processing platform code-named "trinket" - or, in other words, the Snapdragon 665 SoC. 

It also has 4GB of RAM; therefore, it may be a popular budget option for this part of the new year - should it have a price to match, of course. However, unfortunately, its new Geekbench listing also suggests it will run ColorOS 6 (based on Android 9.0) rather than 7 (a more up-to-date version) out of the box.

Finally, its launch in 5 days is touted as for the Vietnamese market only, with no further hints as to a more worldwide release for this putative low-end new Realme phone.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
