Realme has confirmed leaks pointing to a Helio G80-powered phone with the launch of the 6i in Myanmar. Unlike the rest of its new series, this phone has an HD+ display, although it outdoes the rest with a 5000mAh battery. It also features a novel "pinstripe" rear panel in 2 new colors.

Realme's 5 series of smartphones contained a budget model with an 'i' suffix. Now, it has a 2020 successor. In accordance with its recent official leak, it is indeed the world's first MediaTek Helio G80-based mobile device. Its launch also reveals it has the same 6.5-inch screen size as the pre-existing 6 variant.

Unlike this mid-ranger, however, its panel is of an HD+ resolution, with no mention of a 90Hz refresh rate. The Realme 6i does have a 48MP main rear camera, which completes a quad arrangement with 8+2+2MP lenses. Its 5000mAh battery exceeds that of either the 6 or 6 Pro, even if it doesn't have the 30-watt Flash Charging found in these 2 higher-end models.

The Realme 6i has seen its debut in Myanmar, as its OEM-generated teaser suggested. Here, it is available in SKUs with either 3GB of RAM and 64GB of storage or 4GB RAM and 128GB in internal storage. Their prices have been set at 249990 kyat (MMK, or ~US$180) or 299900 MMK (~$215) respectively.

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.
