About relatives.


Realme 10s is very close to the Realme 9i 5G announced in India this summer. The beginner has a higher charging speed, more memory. And there is no one of the auxiliary super cameras with a resolution of 2 MP. Everything. Otherwise, the devices are identical.

Realme 9i 5G

Another close relative is, of course, the Realme 10 5G announced last month (also in China). It also has one more camera than 10s. He also has chips.a little different.

Realme 10s uses MediaTek Dimensity 810 chipset, while Realme 10 5G uses MediaTek Dimensity 700. Actually, it's about the same. It's just that the Dimensity 810 is newer, made using a more modern process technology. But, in general, the chips are almost identical. Dimensity 810, of course, half a bump faster. If you're lucky, you can get up to 400 thousand points in AnTuTu.

Memory is fine. 8 GB operational, 128 or 256 GB permanent. There is support for memory cards (separate slot).

The screen is quite standard by today's standards. Diagonal 6.6" (105 cm²), resolutionResolution 1080x2408 (400 ppi). Slightly increased refresh rate - up to 90 Hz.

The battery is good, 5000 mAh. Moderately fast charging - 33 W.

The set of cameras is quite trivial. Front camera with a resolution of 8 MP plus the classic budget duet 50 + 2 MP. The main sensor is likely to be Samsung ISOCELL JN1, although this has not been announced directly.

There is no mention of the NFC module. Most likely, it is not here. The fingerprint scanner is combined with the power button. There is Type-C, dual-band Wi-Fi, and even a standard audio output.

It will cost Realme 10s� ¥1099 (₽10400, $157) and ¥1299 (₽12300, $186) for 8+128GB and 8+256GB varieties respectively.
