With this kind of specs, the Realme 5 devices are bound to shake up the entire budget phone segment. I mean, previously people were fussing over a triple camera setup.

However, although the specs may look great on paper the actual performance of the devices still remains to be seen. Hopefully, it will be as good as it is on paper.
