Realme launched the V5, which started at around US$212, as a Chinese-market exclusive earlier in the year. Now, however, it appears to have been approved for sale in Thailand, suggesting that this 6.5-inch 90Hz display device may start to become available in other regions soon.

Realme launched the V5 as a phone with 6 to 8GB of RAM and quad rear cameras with a 48MP main camera. However, it has only been released in China, starting at 1399 yuan (~US$212), thus far. No, however, there are signs that its OEM is planning to expand its availability soon.

They mainly come in the form of a new certification granted by the Thai mobile telecomms regulator NBTC. It is for a device called the Realme RMX2111: a model number associated with the V5. However, the device is referred to as the 7 5G instead in this document.

This suggests that the V5 is indeed breaking out into other markets, albeit as a new member of the pre-existing 7 series. Furthermore, it seems from the "5G" moniker included in the new NBTC listing, it will still have the same MediaTek Dimensity 720 processor when or if it gets there. It will be interesting to see if it still have the same approximate price-tag on this putative occasion.

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.
