realme 6i: Price, availability in Singapore

New budget challenger

Published

on

The realme 6i is coming to Singapore and there’s plenty to be excited about.

Mediatek’s Helio G80 powers the device, providing a 35% performance boost from realme 5’s Snapdragon 665. It comes with either 3GB or 4GB of RAM for a fluid experience. Storage still comes at an option of 64GB or 128GB, which is expandable with a MicroSD card. The device comes with realme UI based on Android 10, so users can expect goodies such as system-wide Dark Mode here.

The camera has some massive improvements in tow this year. It still has a quad-camera setup from its predecessor. What’s new is the setup: it now has a 48MP wide-angle + 8MP ultra-wide-angle + 8MP macro + 2MP depth sensor on the back. This should allow for better images with more details and higher resolutions.

The front camera’s got some boost too. realme 6i now has a 16MP up front, which is a 3MP bump from last year.

The display of this device remains at 1600 x 720 resolution. The company could have switched to an OLED panel this year, but they have to cut some corners in order for this device to remain competitive at its target segment. Still, the display should be enough for most users.

These features are all packed in a smartphone with an improved finish and design. The design of Realme 6i is helmed by Naoto Fukusawa, who is also behind the realme X Series Master Edition.

Price and availability

The realme 6i will be available in two colors; Green Tea and Milk White (4+128GB) and will be priced at SG$ 269. The phone will be on sale from June 5, 2020 at all official authorized retailers island wide as well as realme’s Lazada and Shopee flagship stores.

Launch promotion includes free realme 10,000mAH Powerbank worth SG$ 69 with every realme 6i purchased on realme’s flagship stores on Lazada and Shopee between June 5-12.

NieR Replicant

Square Enix came into Tokyo Game Show 2020 with a big announcement in mind. Even though it was an online show, the developers behind Final Fantasy and Marvel’s Avengers have something brewing up for the year. This time, they’ve decided to focus on a market-exclusive title —  NieR Replicant — ready for a more worldwide stage.

To kickoff the Tokyo Game Show, they’ve announced the arrival of NieR Replicant ver. 1.22474487139. If you haven’t heard of NieR Replicant before, that’s totally reasonable because this was a Japan-exclusive release. Essentially, Replicant ver. 1.22474487139 is a remaster of the original game released in 2010 for Japanese players.

NieR Replicant is the most anticipated sequel to the post-apocalyptic RPG, NieR Automata. This prequel delves into a darker world that sees you going on a quest for a cure. Also, joining you in this quest is Grimoire Weiss in search for the “Sealed Verses.” For Automata players, you may be familiar with it as he appears as downloadable content for the game.

The prequel will be available on April 22, 2021 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Meanwhile, its PC release on Steam will be on April 24, 2021.
