The advanced SoC allows this handset to deliver several state of the art features like 5G connectivity, a high refresh rate display, a great battery life, and a versatile triple camera setup. And what’s surprising is that all this is available at an impressive price of Rs 17,999. Let’s delve deeper into its offerings to show you why we think it’s the best option in the sub-Rs 20,000 price bracket.
Powerful performance with 6nm MediaTek Dimensity 810 chipset
The MediaTek Dimensity 810 delivers the kind of raw power that realme 8s needs to run the heaviest of apps and games smoothly on any given day. Built on the 6nm production process, it offers incredible power efficiency along with its remarkable performance.

This combination results in improved performance and higher battery efficiency.
The phone’s everyday performance receives a big boost from the 6GB or 8GB of RAM that’s available on its two models. While this alone is great for multitasking, the presence of realme’s Dynamic RAM Expansion feature gives you further access to 5GB worth of memory by utilising unused storage space. This effectively means that users of the realme 8s 5G have up to 13GB RAM at their disposal.
Gamers will be pleased to know that the Mali-G57 MC2 GPU onboard the MediaTek Dimensity 810 chip is adept at rendering slick graphics effortlessly. And the presence of the MediaTek HyperEngine 2.0 technology ensures that the gaming experience on the phone will be uninterrupted. Its Intelligent Resource Management Engine dynamically manages CPU, GPU, and memory based on power, thermal, and gameplay factors. This technology is also replete with plenty of connectivity traits like 5G/4G Smart Switch and Call & Data Concurrency on 5G.
Ultra-smooth 90Hz display
The MediaTek Dimensity 810 SoC’s support for high refresh rate displays has allowed realme to equip the realme 8s 5G with a 90Hz FHD+ panel.

Ready for the 5G network
The MediaTek Dimensity 810’s connectivity modem doesn’t just support 5G but also offers several features that augment the phone’s 5G experience. Firstly, it has dual standby 5G on its SIM slots and also uses its Smart 5G feature to bring about a 30 percent reduction in battery consumption while bouncing between networks. The chipset comes with MediaTek 5G UltraSave technology which ensures good battery life even when using 5G. Moreover, the chipset’s 5G modem supports 2CC CA, which allows it to be compatible with the world’s leading 5G bands.

And such pictures are helped by its Nightscape Filters that offer five different looks tailored specially for low-light shots. The main camera is accompanied by a B/W portrait lens and a macro lens, giving users more versatility when clicking pictures.
