Today was Realme’s big day and we finally got to know the Realme 8 Pro, the one that will lead Realme’s mid-range for the time being in 2021. But it seems that there are no two without three because in the India presentation the Realme 8 has been unveiled.
The little brother of the Realme 8 Pro and successor of the Realme 7 is also similar to the latter: there is no change in the processor and the screen loses the 90 Hz refresh rate, but instead, the design is updated and the panel is AMOLED this time.

Realme and the flashes: let everything shine always
The Realme 8 has almost the same look and feel like the Pro, but with the addition of more highlights and more flashes. They are located in the camera module and the letters, or the background of the same according to the color, so that there are not only two patterns, but in this Realme 8 is three in terms of shades.
Thus, in the rear we also see the stony style gradient that we have already tested in the Realme 8, but with different colors and with this holographic finish that we mentioned. The module is a clone, although we will see that there are differences in the camera section, but it is also rectangular and is in a corner.
The fingerprint reader goes from the side, as we saw in the Realme 7, to be placed on the screen, now super AMOLED. It is a 6.4-inch AMOLED panel with Full HD+ resolution, which as we said before remains at a 60 Hz refresh rate. Of course, the 1,000 nits of brightness is shared with the Realme 8 Pro.
History repeats itself, but with more megapixels
Same move in terms of the processor as with the Pro. Here in the base Realme 8, we see that MediaTek’s Helio G95 is repeated as in the Realme 7, in this case with versions of 4, 6, or 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage.
To power all this we see a 5,000 mAh battery higher than the Pro. Although fast charging remains at 30 W (and not 50 W), with this there is usually a good experience in terms of charging times.
In terms of connectivity, it has Dual WiFi, 4G, Bluetooth 5.1, and GPS. In terms of software, it comes with Realme UI 2.0 based on Android 11.
At the camera level, we see an unsurprising combination that we almost expected in the Realme 8 Pro. The bigger brother boasts 108 megapixels while in this case, we see a somewhat lower resolution for the main lens:
- Main camera with a 64-megapixel sensor and 6P lens with f/1.79 aperture.
- Ultra wide-angle camera with 8-megapixel sensor and lens with f/2.25 aperture and 119-degree field of view.
- Macro camera with a 2-megapixel sensor and f/2.4 aperture lens.
- 2-megapixel monochrome sensor with f/2.4 aperture lens.
- Front camera with a 16-megapixel sensor and f/2.45 aperture lens.
