Realme 5 and Realme 5 Pro forums are now open

Realme launched the new Realme 5 and Realme 5 Pro at an event in Delhi, India on August 20, 2019. These new devices succeed the Realme 3 and the Realme 3 Pro that were launched in April 2019 and March 2019, respectively. While one may not agree with the need to refresh smartphones within such short release cycles, the fact is that both of these phones present yet another value option for consumers. Realme is rightfully credited for bringing much-needed strong competition in terms of value purchases in the budget and early mid-range segments in India in recent months. And as a consumer, the company’s existence in the market will bring you more options and better deals.

Recognizing the growing community for Realme devices, forums are now live for the Realme 5 and the Realme 5 Pro! These forums will serve as the home to upcoming development work in the form of third-party ROMs, kernels, recoveries, and other customizations.

I am a tech journalist with XDA since 2015, while being a qualified business-litigation lawyer with experience in the field. A low-end smartphone purchase in 2011 brought me to the forums, and it's been a journey filled with custom ROMs ever since. When not fully dipped in smartphone news, I love traveling to places just to capture pictures of the sun setting. You can reach out to me at [email protected]
