Realme 8 series India launch date tipped again; CEO Madhav Sheth teases new illuminating colour

Realme 8 series India launch date is tipped to be March 24th, as opposed to March 25th as rumoured earlier.

  • Realme 8 and 8 Pro India launch date is tipped to be March 24th
  • Both the phones are expected to have AMOLED displays
  • Realme 8 Pro illuminating colour option teased ahead of launch

Realme 8 series is expected to include three models: a 4G-only vanilla Realme 8, Realme 8 Pro 4G, and a 5G variant of the Pro model. The India launch date of the phones was recently tipped to be March 25th. The Realme 8 Pro is confirmed to pack quad-cameras at the back with 108MP primary sensor, an in-display fingerprint sensor, and Blue colour option. Now, Twitter user Gadgetsdata (Debayan Roy) claims the Realme 8 series India date is March 24th, which is a day before the initially said date. Though we can’t come to a conclusion regarding the Realme 8 series launch date based on these leaks, we can say for certain the phones are set to debut in the country later this month. Additionally, the leakster says both Realme 8 and the Pro model will feature an AMOLED display.

Separately, Realme India head Madhav Sheth has teased the illuminating colour option ahead of the launch. The image shows the phone’s rear-panel in Black colour while the camera-module and ‘Dare to Leap’ logo are seen in glowing-green colour. We can also see the ‘108MP quad-camera’ etched on the camera-housing, which suggests we might be looking at Realme 8 Pro. This could be a special limited edition model that will be joining the regular colour options.
