It’s finally official! Realme 6 and Realme 6 Pro are now available in the Philippines and come with P11,990(4GB/128GB) and P16,990(8GB/128GB) price tags, respectively. The non-Pro model with 8GB/128GB costs P13,990. Starting at 1 PM, Realme’s flagship Lazada store will be holding a P500 peso off sale for the Realme 6 while the first 200 purchases of Realme 6 pro will get a free Realme Band. On May 30-31 and June 6-7, a limited edition squad bag worth P1,499 will be bundled with the devices as part of the company’s special offline sale. Alternatively, you can get both Realme 6 series via Home Credit with 0% interest, payable in six months (Realme 6 Pro is eligible for nine months).
For the uninitiated, Realme 6 series offers a 90Hz display refresh rate for budget consumers. The faster screen allows for a smoother experience whether it’s scrolling or gaming. It’s a feature that debuted on OnePlus 7 Pro and we’re glad to see it rolling out to budget devices. Aside from that, you can get to enjoy 64MP quad-cameras featuring telephoto (Pro model only), ultrawide, macro, and depth lenses. A 16MP selfie camera is also present, with the Pro model having an extra 8MP ultrawide for that dual-selfie experience.
Performance-wise, Realme 6 comes with Helio G90T that’s more than enough for gaming while Realme 6 Pro packs the more efficient Snapdragon 720G based on the 8nm process. You can check more of their differences and similarities below.
