The Realme 8 5G was released in India on Thursday, April 22nd, a day after it was released in Thailand. The Realme phone has a 90Hz touchscreen and an octa-core MediaTek Dimensity 700 processor.
The Realme 8 5G is a follow-up to the Realme 8, which was released in India earlier this month alongside the Realme 8 Pro. It is currently the cheapest 5G smartphone in the world.
The smartphone is known as the Realme8, although it is not the same as the 4G edition on paper. The Realme 8 5G is also India’s first smartphone to use the MediaTek Dimensity 700 chipset.

The Realme 8 5G is powered by MediaTek’s 7nm Dimensity 700 chipset. This is also the first phone in India to use the Dimensity 700 SoC.

The 4G version of the Realme 8 is powered by MediaTek’s 12nm Helio G95 chipset. There’s 4/8GB RAM and 128GB of capacity (expandable up to 1TB with a microSD card).
Although the Realme 8 5G receives a chipset update, optics suffer as a result of the sacrifices.
A 48MP main sensor with an f/1.8 aperture, a 2MP f/2.4 monochrome lens, and a 2MP f/2.4 macro camera is used.
A 16MP f/2.1 sensor is located in the punch-hole cutout at the top left for selfies.
In case you’re curious, the 4G model has a 64MP quad-camera configuration on the back, as well as an 8MP f/2.25 ultra-wide-angle lens. The Realme 8 5G version does not come with an ultra-wide lens, which is a major letdown.
Finally, there’s a 5,000mAh battery pack onboard, which supports 18W fast charging.
The smartphone has a fingerprint sensor on the hand that can be used to open it. The computer also runs Realme UI 2.0, which is based on Android 11.
Realme 8 5G – Pricing And When Will It Be Available?
