Availability and price
The Realme V5 is not only the cheapest 5G smartphone that exists right now, but it is also one of those that best price-performance ratio offers. Its configuration with SoC Dimensional 720, 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of UFS 2.1 storage capacity makes it a terminal capable of meeting the needs of almost any type of user.
Its price, in that configuration of 6 GB and 128 GB, is 182 euros to change. The version with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage capacity goes up to 230 euros. Given that having those extra 2 GB of RAM is not going to make a significant difference it is clear that the standard version is the most interesting.
The first units will start to arrive from August 7, but we still do not have details about its international launch. If the base model ends up arriving for 200 euros, including taxes, Realme could “break” the Spanish market.
