Realme 8i specifications

Realme 8i is said to sport a 6.59-inch FHD+ display with a 120Hz refresh rate, punch-hole cutout for the selfie snapper, and slim bezels. The phone could have a plastic body, since it’s a budget phone and measures 8.6mm in thickness, and weigh 194 grams. The Realme 8i will be the first phone powered by the MediaTek Helio G96, which has two Cortex-A76 cores clocked up to 2.05GHz and six Cortex-A55 cores paired with Mali-G57 MC2 GPU. It packs 4GB RAM and 128GB UFS 2.2 storage.

The Realme 8i is said to have a triple camera setup on the back, with a 50MP primary sensor, a 2MP portrait camera, and a 2MP macro camera. There is a 16MP snapper for selfies and video chats and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor for security. A 5,000mAh battery will fuel the phone. While the exact charging speed hasn’t been revealed, it may come with at least 30W charging.
