After the last few weeks of official teasers, Realme has revealed that the Realme 8 series will break cover on March 24th. It will be a direct successor to the Realme 7 lineup and will have two smartphone models. These will be called the Realme 8 and Realme 8 Pro where the latter would be the most feature-rich offering.
Realme is focusing specifically on the Realme 8's camera performance for marketing the series. It has already confirmed that we will see the usage of the latest 108-megapixel Samsung HM2 camera sensor. This is the reason the company is using the tagline "Capture Infinity" to build some hype. It is further promoting 9-in-1 pixel binning tech for improved low-light shots.
Realme has also kicked off Realme 8 series blind sale called Infinity Sale on its website and exclusive partner Flipkart. It is an opportunity for fans to book their Realme 8 or Realme 8 Pro units by paying INR 1080 each. This will ensure that whenever these phones will go on sale for the first time, they will be able to purchase them. They will simply need to pay the remaining amount depending on the particular phone variant they are buying. The sale is currently live and will last until March 22nd.
Here are the alleged Realme 8 Pro Specifications:
- 6.4-inch Super AMOLED Full HD+ display
