Realme appears to be gearing up for the launching of two new budget phones, the Realme C3 and the Realme 5i. These smartphones were located on Singapore’s IMDA (Infocomm Media Development Authority) website.
There are no additional details available at the moment, other than the names and model numbers of the two smartphones. The Realme 5i is bearing the same model number as that of the recent leak of the same phone, on the Wi-Fi Alliance certification website, thereby strengthening its legitimacy.
A tipster, Sudhanshu Ambhore (@Sudhanshu1414), has tweeted the news about the two smartphones on IMDA, along with a screenshot of the IMDA listing page.

The Realme C3 listing bears the model number ‘RMX1941’ with details such as support for LTE. This means the Realme C3 will not be a 5G smartphone with an expected launch early next year.
The devices were listed by Sinoppel Device Pte. Ltd., the local office of Oppo Mobiles. The Realme C3 might replace the Realme C2 that is an entry-level smartphone from Realme. However, the specifications of the smartphone are still not known.
The Realme 5i is found listed with the model number’ RMX2030.’ It is the same number which we saw first earlier this month on the Wi-Fi Alliance certification website.
Again, there are no further details about this phone, other than the case that it will support LTE. Realme already has the range of 5 series phones, Realme 5, and the Realme 5s, so the Realme 5i is anticipated to offer a slight bump in the specification (the SoC expected mostly), as the way the company has done with the Realme 3i.
Realme would be seeming to fill a small price gap or might be replacing the original Realme 5 with the Realme 5i, to keep things new and appropriate.
