The 2021 Realme Camera Innovation Event is happening March 2
You may recall that previous Realme models had a 64-megapixel sensor or fewer. This would make the Realme 8 the first Realme phone — or phones? — with a 108-megapixel sensor. Historically, Realme introduced a standard model alongside an upgraded Pro variant, so it makes sense to expect a vanilla Realme 8 and Realme 8 Pro.
Previous reports suggest the base version in the lineup might incorporate a MediaTek Dimensity 720 or Dimensity 800U processor along with 8GB RAM. Other rumored specs include a high refresh rate — at least 120Hz, same as the recently announced Realme Narzo 30 Pro 5G — and the latest Realme UI software interface based on Android 11.
In related news, 91Mobiles has spotted an image featuring Bollywood actor and Realme brand ambassador Salman Khan holding a never-before-seen Realme smartphone that could be the Realme 8 or Realme 8 Pro. The handset in question sports a glossy rear panel with Realme’s “Dare to Leap” motif on the back, as well as a new camera layout.
The Realme 8 series is expected to take on Xiaomi‘s Redmi Note 10 series, which will make its global debut March 4.
