Realme 6i – Features Full phone specification has carried a couple of teasers to reveal the key features of Realme 6i ahead of its official debut. The Realme 6i’s FCC listing suggested a 5,000 mAh battery. He also mentioned that the phone would measure 164.4×75.4×9.0mm and weigh 195 grams.
If we believe the recently spotted listing on the Geekbench site, the Realme 6i will come with at least 4GB of RAM and run Android 10 out-of-the-box. The smartphone appeared on the benchmarking portal with model number RMX2040 that was also featured on the US FCC site last month.
The Realme 6i release date is set for March 17. Realme has announced the launch of its new smartphone through its Facebook page in Myanmar. The new development comes months after the Realme 6i surfaced on certification sites in Thailand and the US.
Alongside FCC, the Realme 6i apparently received certification from Thailand’s The National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) with the same RMX2040 model number.
Realme hasn’t yet announced whether it would bring the Realme 6i to markets other than Myanmar anytime soon. However, the Chinese company’s rapid growth and large consumer base in India would convince it to launch the new phone at least in the country soon after.
Realme Myanmar’s official Facebook page revealed the release date of the Realme 6i in the country by updating its cover photo, as noted by tech blog India Shops. The cover photo shows that the launch will take place at 3 pm MMT (2 pm IST) on Tuesday, March 17. It also highlights the presence of MediaTek Helio G80 on the new smartphone.
The smartphone was also recently spotted on the benchmarking portal Geekbench. The Realme 6i is apparently in the works with model number RMX2040. Considering the historical records of the company, it is expected to be a toned-down version of the Realme 6 that was launched in India last week — alongside the Realme 6 Pro.
Last month, MediaTek launched the Helio G80 as its latest gaming and graphics focussed octa-core SoC with HyperEngine technology. The chip includes two Cortex-A75 cores with a maximum clock speed of 2GHz and six Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 1.8GHz. It also supports up to 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM and eMMC5.1 storage.
The Facebook page also confirms the 18W fast charge support on the Realme 6i that is offered to deliver charging results 38 percent faster than standard 10W charging technology. The phone will also have a USB Type-C port, an update on the available micro-USB port on the Realme 5i. Additionally, another teaser posted on the social media site shows a quad rear camera setup on the Realme 6i with a 48-megapixel primary sensor.
