Realme 8 5G specifications (expected)

Realme 8 5G specifications have shown up on Geekbench and Google Play Console, so we have some idea of what to expect. The Geekbench listing revealed that the phone will come with the MediaTek Dimensity 700 chipset, 8GB RAM, and Android 11. The Google Play Console listing, on the other hand, suggested the MediaTek Dimensity 800 SoC, but we now know that is not the case. The listing also revealed an FHD+ display, 8B RAM, and Android 11.

Meanwhile, official teaser images ahead of the phone’s launch in Thailand have revealed the design. The Realme 8 5G will look similar to the 4G variant, with a rectangular rear camera module. The phone may get a corner punch-hole camera as well, but the teaser images have not confirmed this yet. The device will launch in Supersonic Blue and Supersonic Black colour options in Thailand. That is all we know about the Realme 8 5G specifications at the moment.
