Realme announces its latest flagship series – Realme 8 and Realme 8 PRO with 6.4-inch FHD+ AMOLED display and these Smartphones arrive with exceptional specifications and features while highlighting the main differences from their predecessors.
The Realme 8 PRO is unarguably the best of the series, while the Realme 8 still understands the Smartphone markets. Realme 7 series may also have some identical features with the new 8-series.
Obviously, one of the major differences in the cameras. The Realme 8 PRO arrives with a large 1/1.52” 108-megapixels Samsung HM2 sensor with 0.7 µm pixels and supports 9-in-1 binning at 12MP and comes with f/1.9 aperture for great low-light imaging.
Other cameras include the 8-megapixel 119° ultra-wide-angle lens, 2-megapixel B&W portrait lens, and a 2-megapixel camera for 4cm macro shots. While the front camera-cutout houses a Sony IMX471 16-megapixel selfie sensor.
Realme claims that the 108MP lens supports 3x zoom, which gives the phone enough processing power to snap eight frames and merge them into one final image but only when the 12MP of the full sensor is used.
Starry Mode is now available for videos too, and within an hour, the phone can snap 240 frames (each 15 seconds apart) and string them into an 8-second video that shows the movement of the night sky.
It also comes with supports for Super Nightscape mode that adequately handles the software part and Ultra Nightscape Video mode and for patient star-gazers. Other features are Tilt-shift Time-lapse Video, Starry Time-lapse Video, New Super Nightscape Mode, Neon Portrait, Dynamic Bokeh, Dual-view Video, and more.
The Realme 8 Pro is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G 8nm Mobile Platform with Adreno 618 GPU, and paired with either 6GB / 8GB LPPDDR4x RAM with 128GB storage, and you can easily expand the memory up to 256GB with microSD.
It packs a 6.4-inch 1080 pixels 20:9 Full HD+ Super AMOLED screen, up to 1000 nits brightness, 60Hz refresh rate, and the 180Hz touch sampling rate is another upgrade also. It boasts a 90.8% screen-to-body ratio.
It comes with dedicated dual SIM and microSD card slots, an in-display fingerprint scanner that unlocks pretty fast, and an AG-Crystal Process on technology with smooth hand feeling and high-grade quality.
Realme really did put its time to the designs and color options, as the company said that the Infinite Blue is dreamlike and dazzling while Infinite Black is mysterious and low-key. It has a large Dare to Leap branding on the back.
The Illuminating Yellow version of the phone uses a special fluorescent material around the camera module and the “DARE TO LEAP” slogan, which can absorb light and then glow automatically in the dark.
To keep the lights on, the 8 Pro arrives with a 4500mAh battery with support for 50W SuperDart Charge fast charging through USB Type-C and you can easily charge the phone up to 50% in 17 minutes and 100% in 47 minutes, and still comes with 65W standard adapter in the box.
On the other hand, we’ve got the Realme 8 and it can be pretty compared to the Realme 7, and even the Realme 8 PRO. It arrives with a 5,000mAh battery with a 30W Dart charger, where a full charge takes a total of 65 minutes and a 50% charge in 26 minutes.
It is powered by MediaTek Helio G95 12nm processor with a 900MHz Mali-G76 3EEMC4 GPU and paired with either 4GB / 6GB / 8GB RAM with 128GB storage, and you can also expand the memory up to 256GB via a dedicated microSD card slot.

The display is totally similar to the Realme 8 PRO, with its 6.4-inch Full HD+ AMOLED screen with 60Hz refresh rate and 180Hz touch sampling rate, and boasts of 90.5% screen-to-body ratio with an in-display fingerprint scanner.
Realme 8 can’t still shoot 4k video resolution with its Realme 7’s 64-megapixels 1/1.7″ Sony IMX682 Sensor, 8-megapixel 119° ultra-wide-angle lens, 2-megapixel B&W portrait sensor, and a 2-megapixel sensor for 4cm macro shots.

On the left is the real world as we see it, while on the right is the mysterious digital world.
