On Thursday, the Realme 8 5G was introduced in India as a low-cost 5G smartphone. It joins the Realme 8 and Realme 8 Pro, which were released in March in India. The Realme 8 5G is a notable addition to the lineup for a variety of reasons, which we’ll go over in this article. We now have all of the details we need, including the Realme 8 5G price in India, specs, and the Flipkart sale date. Here are five things you should know about the Realme 8 5G before you buy it in India, ahead of its launch.
Realme 8 5G is the cheapest 5G phone in India:
The Realme 8 5G’s most notable feature is that it is India’s cheapest 5G handset. Realme’s own Narzo 30 Pro 5G, which debuted at Rs 16,999, previously held the title. The Realme 8 5G, on the other hand, with a starting price of Rs 14,999, becomes the first 5G phone in the sub-Rs 15,000 range, as the brand aims to democratise 5G phones in India.
Realme 8 5G is India’s first phone with MediaTek Dimensity 700 5G Processor:
Another first for the Realme 8 5G is that it is the first phone in India to feature the MediaTek Dimensty 700 processor. The Dimensity 700 is a 7nm-based 5G chipset with a low price tag. It has a 2.2GHz peak clock speed and supports dual 5G SIM cards. Both SA (standalone) and NSA (non-standalone) 5G architectures are supported by the chipset. The chipset scored over 300,000 on the AnTuTu benchmark in our analysis of the Realme 8 5G, which is impressive.
Realme 8 5G review verdict:
We just tested the Realme 8 5G, and here’s what we thought of it. The Realme 8 5G offers capable output in the sub-Rs 15,000 segment, according to our in-house reviewer Kshitij Pujari, but its “normal cameras and less than spectacular charging” will leave you wanting more. Although the phone’s 5G connectivity is its selling point, the LCD panel is “a compromise that should have been avoided.” After all, the phone is up against the Redmi Note 10 Pro, which features a 120Hz AMOLED touchscreen.
Prices of the Realme 8 5G in India
The base model of the Realme 8 5G with 4GB RAM and 128GB internal storage costs Rs 14,999 in India. The choice with 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage costs Rs 16,999. The phone is available in two colours: Supersonic Blue and Supersonic Black.
When will the Realme 8 5G go on sale in India?
On April 28th at 12 p.m., the Realme 8 5G will go on sale in India for the first time. Flipkart and Realme.com will sell the smartphone. When buying the Realme 8 5G on Flipkart, customers will get a 5% cashback if they pay with a Flipkart Axis Bank Credit Card.
