It's been only a few weeks since the Realme 6 series has launched, and now the company has released another Realme 6 series device. It's Realme 6i that was previously spotted in an FCC filing. It features MediaTek's Helio G80, with a quad-camera setup and a massive 5,000mAh battery. The design of Realme 6i hasn't changed much from its predecessor Realme 5i. The device has 6.5-inch HD+ with waterdrop notch, 89.9% screen-to-body ratio.
It comes with two variants in terms of storage. The phone has 3GB RAM/64GB storage and another variant has 4GB RAM /128GB storage. The phone comes with 18W fast charging and reverse wired charging. For security, it uses a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. The rear camera system comes in 48MP primary sensor lens, an 8MP ultra-wide sensor, a 2MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth sensor. The front camera uses a 16MP lens. The device hasn't made any significant improvements to its hardware or display. It comes with Realme UI based interface with Android 10 out of the box.
Other key upgrades over its predecessor include a USB Type-C port for charging, data syncing, and Android 10. The device will have a 3.5mm headphone jack and a dedicated microSD card slot for expansion. Realme has introduced a new range of colors - white milk and green tea with a reflective vertical pattern. The devices are available at $180 for 3GB version and $215 for the 4GB version. Pre-orders for the devices are scheduled to start in Myanmar and the device will be available from March 29. As of now, the company hasn't announced any date for launch in India, but we expect the company to announce the launch in the coming weeks.
Although we do not generally associate Samsung smartphones with MediaTek processors, according to GFXBench, that's about to change. A Samsung smartphone with the model number SM-G615F was earlier spotted on the benchmarking site and as far as we can tell, this could very well be the next iteration of the Galaxy On7. If you are wondering why we think that the unnamed phone could be the On7 (2017), consider the fact that the On7 (2016) had the model number SM-G610 and things should start to make more sense.
However, what was surprising to see is the fact that the smartphone will be sporting a MediaTek CPU, something that we have not yet seen on a Samsung device. I guess all those rumors about Samsung planning to buy chips from MediaTek weren't hogwash after all! Take a look below to see the specs of the upcoming anonymous smartphone from Samsung.
5.7-inch 1080p display
MediaTek Helio P20 octa-core chip, clocked at 2.3GHz and Mali-T880 MP2 GPU
3GB of RAM
32GB of internal storage
12-megapixel rear and front cameras with autofocus, touch focus, face detection, flash and HDR

Oppo has released the Oppo Reno 5 Pro in India and it will become the first smartphone to be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1000 Plus in the sub-continent. Oppo has brought some middle-range mobile features except the latest powerful Dimensity 1000 plus chipset. The phone has a 6.5-inch large Full HD super AMOLED display with a 90Hz display refresh rate instead of the trending 120Hz refresh rate making the headlines. The mobile features 2400x1080 pixels at 402ppi. Oppo has integrated some advanced AI-powered video capture features that can get you a far better and sharper video in portrait mode. The phone has 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. You can't extend the storage as there isn't any MicroSD slot in the device.
Oppo Reno 5 pro is a successor to the Oppo Reno 4 Pro from 2020, only this time the device has a more powerful processor, a slightly larger battery, and 5G support. The interesting factor here is the price, as you get a few more advanced features and an AI-enabled camera at the same price as its predecessor at Rs. 35,990. The device has Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection for the rear panel and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 cover for the front display. Overall the device is slim and low weight. The build quality seems expensive and comfortable to hold in with one hand. The device has a 4,350mAh battery with 65W super VOOC 2.0 fast charging technology.
The device runs on ColorOS 11.1 which is based on Android 11 out of the box. It comes with lots of pre-installed apps that can be uninstalled if you want. These apps include weather, music, browser, theme store, etc. The Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G features a 64-megapixel primary camera sensor along with an 8-megapixel ultra-wide angle camera sensor, a 2-megapixel macro camera, and a 2-megapixel monochrome camera sensor. The front side of the device features a 32-megapixel camera for selfies. You can shot up to 4k videos but with 4k you won't get any image stabilization that is limited to 1080p. For connectivity, it uses 4G LTE support, 5G FDD/TDD, Wi-Fi 6, and Bluetooth 5.1.
