Flipkart will be the exclusive retailer of the new Realme 5G handset. The firm has also created a dedicated microsite to tease some of the device’s main features. So, without further ado, let’s get started.
Specifications for the Realme 8 5G
Realme’s 5G smartphone will most likely be a rebranded version of the Realme V13 5G, which was recently released in China. It will be released a day earlier in Thailand, and the teasers will announce the concept as well as the main official specifications.
A 6.5-inch Full-HD+ LCD screen with a 90Hz refresh rate and 180Hz touch sampling rate will be included in the Realme 8 5G. The monitor has a 20:9 aspect ratio, a resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels, and a brightness of up to 600 nits. Onboard is a side-mounted fingerprint sensor and an 8MP selfie camera with a punch-hole.
A 48MP main sensor, a 2MP macro sensor, and a 2MP B&W sensor make up the triple rear camera configuration. The MediaTek Dimensity 700 chipset will control the Real-me 8 5G. Up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage are available. It will be the first smartphone to use a Dimensity 700 5G chipset.
This smartphone also comes with a large 5,000mAh battery that supports 18W rapid charging. A USB Type-C port, a 3.5mm headset socket, and 5G networking will be included. Realme 8 5G can come pre-installed with Realme UI 2.0, which is built on Android 11.
Realme’s forthcoming entry-level 5G smartphone would be fascinating to see how it is priced in India. Keep an eye out for more info.
