    Realme 5i is the company's first smartphone in India this year and it will be available for purchase in the country via Flipkart and realme.com. Ahead of its official launch, the company has confirmed a number of key details about the phone.

    Here's what we know about the upcoming Realme 5i so far:

    -- Realme, via a list on Flipkart and its website, has confirmed that its upcoming smartphone will pack a gigantic 5,000mAh battery.

    -- It will come with a quad-rear camera setup consisting of a primary lens, a wide-angle lens, a portrait and a macro lens. Realme hasn't shared the exact specifications of its camera lenses yet. However, the device launched in Vietnam today comes with a 12-megapixel + 8-megapixel + 2-megapixel + 2-megapixel camera setup at the back. We expect the phone to feature similar camera specifications in India.

    -- The phone will come with a 6.5-inch mini-drop full screen display. To recall, Realme 5, which was launched in India last year, also comes with a similar display design. The company hasn't revealed details about the phone's front camera yet.
