Realme 8 5G specifications (expected)

Realme 8 5G will make its debut in Thailand on April 21st before arriving in India. The invite teaser shows the Realme 8 5G will have a punch-hole cutout at the top left corner for the selfie camera, narrow bezels and what appears to be a side-mounted fingerprint sensor for security. The phone has a boxy design, which looks unique. Earlier teaser images have revealed the rear design in full glory. It will be available in Supersonic Blue and Supersonic Black colour options. The back of the phone will sport a rectangular module with quad-sensors, with the primary sensor being a 48MP sensor. Unlike the 4G models, the Realme 8 5G doesn’t come with the ‘Dare to Leap’ branding. The phone weighs 185 grams and measures 8.5mm in thickness.

Talking about the Realme 8 5G specifications, it is said to pack 8GB RAM, FHD+ display, with 1080 x 2400 pixels resolution, and Android 11 OS with Realme UI 2.0 custom skin overlaid on top. However, the optic details, battery capacity, display size, and other features remain under wraps, for now. The phone will be available via Flipkart after its launch in the country. With the launch just a few days away from now, we don’t have to wait for much longer to know more details.
