Lucknow: Realme 8 5G is going to be India’s very first smartphone that will come with all-new MediaTek Dimenity 700 5G chipset. The company has also teased its launch on Flipkart, which will be the official e-commerce platform for the upcoming 5G phone.
In addition to the MediaTek Dimensity 700 chipset, Realme 8 5G specifications will also include 8GB RAM, Android 11, and an FHD+ display. The smartphone could also be the cheapest 5G phone in India yet as it is expected to be priced lower than the Realme Narzo 30 Pro.

However, Realme 8 5G launch date in India has not been confirmed yet, but it is believed that it could launch in India soon after its debut in Thailand on April 21st. The phone is also rumoured to launch alongside the Realme 8i, though the company is yet to confirm this news too.
Realme 8 5G specifications as expected:
Realme 8 5G specifications have been tipped by many tech tipsters, based on the leaks the phone will come with the MediaTek Dimensity 700 chipset, 8GB RAM, and Android 11. The Google Play Console listing, on the other hand, suggested the MediaTek Dimensity 800 SoC, but we now know that is not the case. The listing also revealed an FHD+ display, 8B RAM, and Android 11.
However, official teaser images ahead of the phone’s launch in Thailand have revealed the design. As per the available information, the Realme 8 5G will look similar to the 4G variant, with a rectangular rear camera module. The phone may get a corner punch-hole camera as well, but the teaser images have not confirmed this yet. The device will launch in Supersonic Blue and Supersonic Black colour variants in Thailand.
