Realme 10 5G is official in China, hours after its 4G counterpart was launched globally. Unlike the Realme 10 4G, its 5G version comes with a MediaTek Dimensity 700 chip and a waterdrop-style notch. There are a few other differences, too. Realme 10 5G launch comes ahead of the Realme 10 Pro Plus and Realme 10 Pro on November 17. Of these, the Pro Plus model has been confirmed to launch in India. It remains to be seen if Realme will bring the Realme 10 5G to other markets— including India— in the days to come.
