The Realme 5 Pro is available in two colour options: Sparkling Blue and Crystal Green. Luckily, both are available at the same discounted price. Nokia, on the other hand, tends to charge more for some of its special colourways. For example, the Cyan Green option on the similarly priced Nokia 7.2 was costlier than the Charcoal option during Nokia’s Christmastime price cut. Earlier this week, the price of the Nokia 7.2 was slashed further, to Rs 14,872. You can read more about that here.
Realme launched the Realme 5 Pro in India in early September 2019 at a starting price of Rs 13,999. Since then, the handset has been receiving software updates regularly. One of the most significant updates came a couple of months ago with the latest November 2019 security patch. It also enabled the Realme 5 Pro to take brighter selfies in low-light settings through the new Nightscape mode. In addition, it fixed a lot of issues on the Realme 5 Pro’s Android 9 Pie-based ColorOS software. You can read more about that here.
