Realme 8 5G design teased in promo video
As per the promo video spotted by tipster Mukul Sharma, the Realme 8 5G will look similar to the 4G variant that launched in India. We only get to see the back of the phone, but the front should look identical to the 4G variant as well.
Previous reports (FCC documents) had also revealed that the 5G variant will feature a 5,000mAh battery similar to the standard Realme 8. We expect it to come with support for 30W fast charging or higher. The phone will reportedly get a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, dual-band Wi-Fi, NFC, and other connectivity features. We do not know much about the official launch date of the phone in India, but it is expected to happen on April 23rd.
The phone has also passed through the BIS certification website, which does hint at an imminent launch. Other specifications such as display, camera setup, etc still remain a mystery. However, if the launch is indeed around the corner, then we should get an official announcement from Realme in the coming days.
