Realme 8 5G announced: A true Redmi Note 10 5G Rival

Real me

Realme has launched the Realme 8 5G in India. 

It has the same price as the 4G model but makes a few cutbacks.

Realme launched the Realme 8 recently with the standard Realme 8 and Professional model both being 4G models. Imagine a scenario in which you need cutting-edge availability on a careful spending plan, however. That is the place where the recently reported Realme 8 5G comes in.

The BBK-possessed brand is taking the same course that Xiaomi took with the Redmi Note 10 5G. The Realme 8 5G basically exchanges a couple of the 4G model’s highlights for a super-quick network.

That implies you have a phone with a considerably more humble camera arrangement than the Realme 8, for starters.The new phone ditches the 4G model’s ultra-wide lens and 64MP main camera in favor of a 48MP main camera and a pair of 2MP sensors (macro and monochrome). Fortunately, you’ve still got a 16MP camera for selfies in a left-aligned punch-hole cutout.

Other prominent minimizations from the Realme 8 incorporate a change from an OLED screen to an LCD board (though with an invigorate rate to move up to 90Hz) and 18W wired charging (down from 30W).We also see a switch from an in-display fingerprint sensor to a side-mounted scanner, although this might be an upgrade for many consumers.

Otherwise, the Realme 8 5G boasts a Dimensity 700 5G SoC 4GB or 8GB of RAM. (with the ability to use storage space as virtual RAM), 128GB of expandable storage, and a 5,000mAh battery. With the exception of the chipset, this is largely in line with the 4G variant.

Realme’s new 5G device goes on sale in India for a starting price of Rs 14,999 (~$200) for the 4GB/128GB model. Making it identical to the Realme 8’s starting price tag. Expect to pay Rs 16,999 (~$226) for the 8GB/128GB option. The first sale kicks off on April 28 and the phone will be available in Supersonic Black and Supersonic Blue options.
