Realme 8 5G Confirmed Features
As per the Flipkart teaser, the handset is confirmed to come with a 90Hz Ultra smooth display and support FHD+ resolution. Besides, it will support up to 600nits high brightness, 180Hz touch sampling rate. The chipset will be paired with up to 128GB onboard storage which will support an additional storage expansion of up to 1TB via a microSD card slot. Software-wise, the handset will run Android 11 OS with Realme UI 2.0.
Earlier, the official teaser video showed the back panel of the handset. According to the video, the phone will feature a punch-hole cutout at the top left corner for the selfie camera and it doesn’t have the brand’s tagline like the Realme 8 4G model. Besides, the back panel of the 5G model will feature the same gradient surface and a rectangular module with quad-sensors.
Apart from this, other details are yet to be confirmed; however, the phone is rumored to be the rebranded of the Realme V13 5G. This makes sense as the Flipkart teaser has revealed the same 90Hz display of the Realme 8 5G which is present on the Realme V13 5G. So, other features like battery, camera sensor are also believed to be the same as the Realme V13 5G. To recall, the Realme V13 5G has a 48MP primary sensor and an 8MP selfie camera. A 5,000 mAh battery fuels the device.
