Realme V3 230The Realme V3 5G  has a 6.5-inch screen, three rear cameras, and a 5,000 mAh battery. The Mediatek Dimensity 720 is similar to the popular Qualcomm 765 in Antutu testing. It should be fine for most practical purposes, although the main camera has only 13 megapixels. 

CEO Xu Qi expects to sell 50 million phones this year and soon reach 100 million. Realme, Oppo, Vivo & OnePlus are brands of BBK. Added together, in some quarters they are #2 in worldwide phone sales. They spend $billions on research.

 I'm probably going to raise my 2020 yearend estimate of 210,000,000 5G subs because of the low prices and rumors about iPhone 5G.

Welcome  Asia is installing hundreds of thousands of 5G radios and adding 5G subs by the tens of millions. The west is far behind. 200,000,000 in 2020

The demand is there, and most of the technology works. Meanwhile, the hype is unreal. Time for reporting closer to the truth.
