One of the most value-priced 5G phones that are available in the Philippines will be joined by a new variant soon.

The Realme 8 5G with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of expandable storage will launch July 15 on e-commerce platform Shopee. Recall that when the handset became official in the country a few weeks ago, only the 8GB/128GB version was released (check out our review here). The said model costs P11,990 (roughly $240 converted). The upcoming one, on the other hand, gets a suggested retail price of P10,990 ($220). And if you buy it on the 15th, you can have it for only P9,490 ($190).
