Realme 6i Official Prices in the Philippines and Flash Sale Dates, Officially Announced

Realme Philippines has just disclosed the official SRPs of the two variants of the all-new Realme 6i midrange Android smartphone as well as their special prices at the Lazada Flash Sale for the handset happening on May 15 and 20, 2020.

The official announcement was done through an internet-only product launch, which was in line with the guidelines of the Enhanced Community Quarantine to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the Philippines as well as the recommendations for the "new normal" following the ongoing global pandemic.

Representing a true upgrade to the Realme 5, the Realme 6i provides a 35% improvement in performance with its 12nm 2GHz Octa-Core Mediatek Helio G80 Processor, sports a 48 MegaPixel Quad-Camera module, features a unique design identity, and even supports 18W Quick Charge for its massive 5,000 mAh Li-Po battery.

On its face, Realme 6i has a very large 6.52-inch HD+ IPS display that's great for enjoying content like photos, videos, and even games. Above that, you will find a 16 MegaPixel selfie-snapper that's powered by Realme's very own beautification software. You may also use this camera to shoot vlogs as well as TikTok videos.

Flipping the phone over, you will see its gorgeous back design, which was imagined by Japanese Industrial Designer Naoto Fukasawa who also worked on the look of the flagship Realme X Series Master Edition.

Mr. Fukasawa has worked at the Product Development and Design department of MUJI and he is renowned in his industry for coming up with designs that are simple but striking. 

The eye-catching look of Realme 6i was inspired by nature - I would say the bamboo shoot - and was achieved by a meticulous shining and coating process.

In the upper left corner of the back plate, you will find Realme 6i's Quad Rear Camera Module that's made up of a 48 MegaPixel f/1.8 main camera that's the best for point-and-shoot photography in various lighting conditions, an 8 MegaPixel f/2.3 ultra-wide shooter for capturing scale which is ideal for landscape or architectural photograhy, a 2 MegaPixel Macro shooter for taking images of very small objects, and a 2 MegaPixel Depth Sensor that enables Portrait Mode through which you can add background blur to your subjects automatically.

If you are one of those who hate always keeping a large powerbank in your bag, you will certainly appreciate the very large 5,000 mAh Li-Po battery of the Realme 6i that guarantees at least two days of uptime with regular use. This pack also supports 18W Fast Charging so you can spend less time plugging the device to an electrical outlet and more time using it to play games such as Mobile Legends, watching videos on Youtube, viewing movies on Netflix, reading blogs, or for staying in touch with your family and friends via popular social networking applications.

Available in Cream White and Green Tea, Realme 6i has 3GB RAM + 64GB ROM and 4GB RAM + 128GB ROM versions both with dedicated microSD card slot that lets the user add more storage space without sacrificing Dual SIM capability.

The suggested retail price of the 3GB RAM + 64GB ROM variant is PHP 7,990 with a special price of PHP 7,490 - that's PHP 500 less if my math serves me right - which buyers can enjoy through Lazada Flash Sale on the dates I mentioned above. On the other hand, the 4GB RAM + 128GB ROM model has an official SRP of PHP 9,990 and a special price of PHP 9,490 at the said online shopping website also on May 15 and 20, 2020.
