The two new smartphones from Realme are about to arrive: the presentation is scheduled for March 24 and some of the technical features have already been unveiled by the company.
The launch date has been set a little over a week from now, that is next March 24, but for Realme 8 Pro and its younger brother Realme 8 is already time to drop its best cards. The two mid-range smartphones have on their side a module with four cameras, a Dark Mode with three variants and a powerful charger (very powerful, in the case of the Pro version) and will be placed behind the new top of the range Realme GT 5G.
The new Realme 8 series will officially debut next March 24 in India with an event, mainly dedicated to the proposals of the Chinese manufacturer belonging to the mid-price range, scheduled for 15 hours Italian. Along with the Pro version, will also arrive the base model of the line and the new pair will replace Realme 7 and Realme 7 Pro released last year. The presentation event dedicated to the cameras, held at the beginning of the month, had already revealed some interesting details about the photographic compartment of this smartphone but, just a few hours ago, thanks to a first unboxing video spread on YouTube showed the main features of the new Realme 8 Pro, giving a further taste to fans and some technical information useful to evaluate the purchase of one or the other model
Realme 8: technical characteristics
The first to speak about the specifications of the new smartphone from Realme was the CEO of the company Madhav Sheth who, on Twitter, confirmed some key peculiarities of the new model. The brain of the new smartphone is the MediaTek Helio G95 (which has slightly better performance than a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G) while, for power, the choice has fallen on a 5,000 mAh battery with support for 30W fast charging. The screen is of appreciable size: we are talking about a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display with punch-hole in the upper left corner.
There is a thin bezel on the sides of the phone and on the bottom, where you can find the slot for 3.5mm mini-jack cable. In addition to these details, there is also the SuperDart 30W charger, an interesting accessory that comes with the USB-A/USB-C cable, the tool needed to extract the SIM card and a transparent silicone case.
But it is the back of this smartphone that holds the richest details. In fact, along with the slogan "Dare to Leap" engraved in the body, the quadruple module camera stands out at the top. What catches the eye is the primary sensor 64 MP.
Realme 8 Pro: technical features
Realme 8 Pro will be very similar to the non-Pro version, with three main exceptions: the camera, the battery and the SoC. The primary sensor is in fact 108 MP, while the battery has a smaller size than the base model (it goes down from 5,000 to 4,500 mAh), but a higher charging speed (it goes up from 30 to 65 Watts). Neither of the two models, however, should have wireless charging.
Nothing certain, however, on the processor that will push the Realme 8 Pro: from many sides there is talk of an SoC Snapdragon from Qualcomm, but without saying with certainty which one. The hypotheses on the table are different and would correspond to equally different selling prices of the smartphone: Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G, Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G or Qualcomm Snapdragon 768G.
Realme 8 and 8 Pro, the software in detail
For the software sector of both models, however, the user will find the well-known graphical interface Realme UI 2.0, based on Android 11, particularly rich in customization options. In particular, the user will be able to set three different variations on the Dark Mode theme, named Gentle, Medium, and Enhanced based on the intensity of the colors. Rounding out the overview is the custom Always On Display and the three-finger swipe down, dedicated to capturing screen images that makes its debut here.
