Recently, the Realme brand presented to the public the leader of its line of mid-range devices – Realme 8 Pro. The main focus is on the 108MP camera, powerful fast charging, Realme UI 2.0 and design. The latter interests the famous Youtuber JerryRigEverything, and not in the context of visual perception, but in terms of practicality. Realme brought him three variants of the Realme 8 Pro at once, and he undertook to conduct his tests on the blue version. He then revealed that the smartphone is completely made of plastic (both the back and the frame). It also has the longest SIM tray that the Youtuber has ever seen.
Despite the materials with a bad reputation, the Realme 8 Pro performed well in the tests. This also applies to the bend test, during which Zak heard a crackle, but did not see any external damage, which leaves intrigue for the second stage of the test – disassembly. Recall that in a similar test, the ASUS ROG Phone 5 of metal and glass did not pass the tests, so plastic is definitely not a verdict.

Earlier this Month, Realme has held a presentation of a new generation of mid-range smartphones led by the Realme 8 Pro model.

The second feature of the Realme 8 Pro is a 6.4″ Super AMOLED screen with FHD+ resolution, a 16-megapixel front camera alongise a fingerprint scanner hidden under the display.
Another outstanding feature of the smartphone is the 50W Super Dart Charge; which can replenish the 4500 mAh battery from 0 to 100% in a modest 47 minutes; and only 3 minutes of charging is enough for 4 hours of calls or 11 hours of listening to music. At the heart of the device is the Snapdragon 720G chipset, familiar to the owners of the previous Realme 6 Pro and Realme 7 Pro.
Other features include an NFC module, a 3.5 mm headphone jack on the bottom edge; and a thin (8.1 mm) and light (176 g) body.
