Realme CEO shares new details about upcoming Realme 8 smartphones


Realme 8

Realme started its 2021 journey with style thanks to the release of its Realme GT flagship. Now, the brand is gearing up to unveil its next mid-range contenders in the form of Realme 8 and Realme 8 Pro. The company will debut some interesting technologies with the new devices, it includes a 108MP Quad-Camera system on the Realme 8 Pro. Now, Realme’s CEO of Realme India and Europe, Madhav Sheth decided to share some additional tidbits about the new smartphones.

According to the executive, the Realme 8 series will be the first phones to run Realme UI 2.0 straight out of the box. This isn’t 100% accurate since the Realme GT launched earlier with the very same Realme UI 2.0. Perhaps, he is saying this due to the wider availability of the Realme 8 duo. For now, the Realme GT is a Chinese exclusive smartphone. When it comes to India and Europe, the new smartphone series may actually be the first Realme phone coming with Realme UI 2.0 straight out of the box.

Of course, having Realme UI 2.0 based on Android 11 is hardly a surprise. After all, we’re not expecting new smartphones to come with the old Android 10-based software. The new software brings a set of improvements, UI changes, and all the goodies introduced in Android 11. It includes one-time permissions, new media notification controls, and more.

The Realme 8 series will also come with an upgraded Starry Mode in the stock camera app. It will offer the ability to record time-lapse videos. This is an interesting feature that will probably use the large 108MP sensor on the 8 Pro.

Meanwhile, more info surfaced about the technical specifications of the Realme 8 series. Apparently, the Realme 8 will pack a 6.4-inch AMOLED display whereas the Realme 8 Pro will sport a larger sensor. Both devices will have a Square-ish camera island comprising a quad-camera setup. In the case of the Pro, we have a 108MP snapper. For now, the technical specs of the Realme 8’s camera aren’t known.

Interestingly, it seems that the 8 Pro will not bring the 65W fast-charging of its predecessor. Instead, Realme will equip it with a 50W SuperDart charge tech. It can still fill the battery to 100 in just 47 minutes. We don’t know the reason behind this downgrade, perhaps to keep the price of the new handset low. Of course, 50W still is beyond many devices in this segment.
