Realme Philippines, the lifestyle partner of the youth, launches the latest smartphone to match the lifestyle needs of Filipinos and disrupt the sub-10K segment, the realme 6i.
The realme 6i offers a bang-for-buck experience with technology and features yet to be seen in its tier: a MediaTek Helio G80 SoC, a 48MP quad-camera set-up and a 5,000mAh battery. With these features, the realme 6i optimizes user experience and elevates it to that of a midrange smartphone. The successor of the realme 5, the realme 6i boasts a 35 percent CPU performance boost over the former. This latest smartphone offering from realme is ready to unleash the power of young aspirants in the fields of gaming, photography and content creation and move young dreamers’ goals forward.
“The realme 6i is an affordable device designed for young Filipinos – the aspiring gamers, photographers and content creators. Realme is a brand for the youth and we want to be with them as they pursue what they are most passionate about by offering a smartphone that would cater to their active lifestyles,” shares realme Philippines Vice President for Marketing Austine Huang.
Conquer the arena
The realme 6i is the first smartphone to run on the powerful MediaTek Helio G80, which enhances the device’s power efficiency for longer gameplay and smoothens the performance of heavy-loading game engines. Gamers, including the young and amateur ones, will bring their game a notch higher and enjoy gaming bonding moments with the device’s high-tier gaming features.
The smartphone is supported by an octa-core CPU that has a frequency of up to 2GHz and is equipped by a Mali G52 1000MHz GPU to guarantee real visual sense and more advanced image rendering. Offering a 25 percent increase in GPU performance to its predecessor.
The realme 6i also boasts a 5,000mAh large-capacity battery that allows users to enjoy long hours of gaming, entertainment and video streaming. While the 18W Quick Charge and a 9V/2A charging kit ensure fast-charging capability to always keep users up with their active lifestyle.
Straight out of the box, the realme 6i runs on the realme UI based on Android 10 for an enhanced and seamless Android experience. The device features a triple-card slot to support dual-nano SIMs and a Micro SD card of up to 256GB memory. It also features a 0.27-second ultra-fast fingerprint unlock and facial recognition to ensure data security and privacy.
Upgraded camera experience
The realme 6i reframes the imaging experience in the value smartphone category by offering aspiring photographers a quad-camera setup of 8MP ultra wide-angle lens, 2MP portrait lens, 2MP ultra-macro lens and 48MP main camera. The high-quality imaging performance lets young Filipinos start taking pro-life shots and develop good content even while staying indoor.
The device’s main 48MP camera features an f/18 large aperture and a 6P lens that provides an all-around photography experience for various scenarios. The 8MP ultra wide-angle lens has a 119° field of view that enables users to capture stunning landscape images and architecture. Its 2MP portrait lens supports the new color filter system of realme that enhances image contrast and adds more texture to portrait images. The 2MP ultra-macro lens has a 4cm shooting distance to enable users to see the finest details of the subject.
The 16MP ultra-clear front camera of the realme 6i uses a Quad Bayer intelligent pixel 4-in-1 technology with an aperture of F2.0 to synthesize large pixels for better resolution and quality even in low light.
The phone also supports 1080p video recording at 30fps with good details, accurate colors and high contrast even in a low-light setting.
An artwork in itself
Styled to match the trendy aesthetic of the youth, the realme 6i has a classic premium vibe and features two trendy colors inspired by nature: White Milk and Green Tea. The back of the realme 6i has been polished hundreds of times and underwent a unique spray coating process to achieve a matte visual and delicate finish.
The smartphone is designed by industrial design master Naoto Fukasawa, the same genius behind the design of the realme X series Master Edition. Fukasawa, who is also in charge of product development and design at Japanese retail company MUJI, is famous for relatively simple yet striking designs.
The realme 6i features a 6.5-inch mini-drop screen for a wider and clearer display. This gives the phone a high screen ratio of 89.8 percent and a bigger display for even more enjoyable web navigation, data checking, image browsing and video streaming.
The smartphone also has an Eye Care feature, which reduces radiation by automatically adjusting the screen color temperature to reduce blue light, thereby preventing eye strain.

To support the highly active lifestyle of the youth and their health and fitness goals, realme Philippines is also officially launching its first fitness wearable, the realme Band. realme Philippines will also be introducing the newest realme Fitness brand influencers — mixed martial arts fighter Rome Trinidad and two-time SEA Games gold medalist for Taekwondo, Japoy Aguilar.

realme Watch 3 Review | All Around Fitness Smartwatch and More #realmeWatch3
realme recently launch the realme Watch 3 which is the successor of the realme Watch 2 released last year. The first thing I noticed is that the display size of the realme Watch 3 is a bit bigger than the Watch 2 which is a a 1.8″ Super Large & Bright Display that utilizes a TFT-LCD panel with frames per second set to 30FPS. Most of the specs and features are similar but has significant difference to name a few. I was fortunate to have a review unit to show you guys all the features of the new realme Watch 3.
The watch 3 looks very premium and solid and it doesn’t look and feel cheap. You can compare it with the higher end smartwatches. It also features a 7-Day Battery Life which is already long for a standard smartwatch. It also has IP68 Dust & Water Resistance where you can use your realme Watch 3 even if you are washing the dishes or hands, you don’t have to worry getting the watch soaking wet as it is tight sealed as shown in the pictures. The realme Watch 3 comes in two color options: Black and Grey which fit for both men and women.
One of the biggest improvement of the realme Watch 3 is the sports mode which feature more than 110+ activities which is more than the previous model. It is your ultimate partner in terms of health and fitness monitoring where it has an All-Day Comprehensive Health Monitoring. Perfect for fitness enthusiast and who is planning to have a better lifestyle by integrating the realme Watch 3 health features for that fitness goal.
Fitness/Sports mode includes Outdoor run, Cricket, Indoor Run, Strength Training, Football, Basketball, Badminton, Yoga, Elliptical, Indoor Cycle, Outdoor Cycle, Mountaineering, Trail Running and many more.
Connectivity and Social Network
What I like about the realme Watch 3 is the seamless connectivity across my social media accounts. First the SMS, where it can immediately notify the watch when there is an incoming SMS message and mobile call without much hassle and vibrates the smart watch even if your mobile is far from you, it is connected through Bluetooth, and in fact it has a Clear Bluetooth Calling feature, where it can handle consistent connection regardless of movement which is perfect of those who have an active lifestyle.
You can also connect your Social Media Network notifications and messaging like Facebook, Twitter, Viber and many more. This makes me more updated with my online activities even without looking at my phone, even if I am on the go or away from my phone, I can check the messages directly from the realme Watch 3.
You can monitor the weather using the realme Watch 3 which is amazing, in just a few swipe, I can see the weather conditions today & tomorrow.
Heart Beat / Sleep Tracking
I think this is very important to keep track of your health in real time even during medical checkups & emergencies can determine your conditions through your heartbeat which can save lives. This essential for those who have heart conditions or monitor your heartbeat during workouts & exercise.
The realme Watch 3 is an improvement of it’s predecessor, it delivers the same quality features that a health enthusiast would love and enjoy. With a bigger screen size, more training and exercise modes, it will make your smartwatch experience more interactive and fulfilling. I recommend the realme Watch 3 to existing or 1st time smartwatch users to try it out. realme Watch 3 is priced at PHP3,499
