Realme has just unveiled the cheapest 5G smartphone, the Realme V3 5G. It costs only $ 147 and is probably the most affordable 5G phone on the market overall.
In this context, it is amusing to recall that just a year ago the iQOO Pro 5G was released, which at the time was also the most affordable device with support for fifth generation networks. It only costs $ 535! That is, in just one year, the minimum price for a smartphone with 5G fell more than 3.5 times.

Returning to the new Realme, its availability is mainly due to the SoC – this is the MediaTek Dimensity 720. We must remember that this is a fairly productive platform. In addition, the basic version of the Realme V3 5G is equipped with 6 GB of RAM (LPDDR4X) and 64 GB of flash memory (UFS 2.1).
But the screen here has a resolution of 1600 x 720 pixels with a diagonal of 6.5 inches. Also, the triple camera with 13, 2 and 2 megapixel sensors is unlikely to please you. Frontal resolution – 8 megapixels.
However, the smartphone should be very autonomous, as a 5000 mAh battery is installed here. There is fast charging with 18 Watt power. Among the rest, we can note the USB-C port, the lack of NFC (maybe the world version will have), dimensions 164.4 x 76 x 8.6 mm weighing 190 g and two colors: gray and blue.
The $ 147 variant has 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of flash memory. There are also versions 6/128 and 8/128 for $ 205 and $ 235, respectively.
