Realme launched the Realme 5i in January and just two months later, the company has announced its successor - the Realme 6i.

The Realme 6i is the world's first smartphone powered by MediaTek's Helio G80 SoC. It runs Android 10-based Realme UI out of the box and comes in two memory versions - 3GB/64GB and 4GB/128GB.

The 6i is built around a 6.5" HD+ display that has a notch up top housing the 16MP selfie camera - a big upgrade over the 5i's 8MP front-facing shooter.
