The Realme 6i with a MediaTek Helio G80 SoC gets launched
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.
