If you are looking for a 5G smartphone on a budget, the Realme V11 5G could be the one for you. It is a smartphone that has just been announced in China. It is the second V-series phone of the year after the release of Realme V15 5G earlier this year but costs a lot cheaper than that.
The Realme V11 5G sports a 6.52-inch HD+ LCD display with a waterdrop notch. There are slim bezels on all four sides and the phone boasts a 20:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, it has the MediaTek Dimensity 700 processor coupled with 4GB of RAM. There is 128GB of onboard storage which completes the only configuration variant you can get.
The back panel has a camera module design that gives an impression of a triple camera setup but actually houses only dual cameras. These include a 13-megapixel primary sensor and a 2-megapixel depth sensor along with an LED flash. The front camera on the phone is an 8-megapixel sensor that is housed within the notch.
The whole package is powered by a 5,000mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging. It also features a USB Type-C port, Bluetooth 5.1, NFC, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. On the software front, it will be running Realme UI based on Android 11 out of the box. The Realme V11 5G has been priced at CNY 1,199 i.e about $185 for the sole 4GB/128GB variant.
