We talked about a phone that arrives to compete with the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro . To do this, it shares a few technical characteristics of its great rival, in addition to an exquisite design that reminds us of some other Oppo solution. The reason? Realmi is a subsidiary of this Chinese giant. Without further ado, we leave you with the design of this Realme 5 Pro.

With a dimension of 15.7 x 7.4 x 8.9 mm and a weight of 184 grams , we are facing a very conventional model in terms of size and weight. Stresses its back with a very curious finish: it simulates the shape of the diamond and, depending on how the light strikes, it offers a different tone.
