After many leaks and rumors pointing to the arrival of a new Realme 8 variant with 5G connectivity, it’s confirmed! The new smartphone dubbed Realme 8 5G will go official in Thailand on April 21. The device will have two colorways – Supersonic Black and Supersonic Blue, the company is confident that it will make success with appealing specs and support for the fifth-gen networks. For that reason, it is revealing a couple of specifications coming with the new smartphone.
The Realme 8 5G flaunts a 6.5-inch punch-hole display with a 90Hz refresh rate. Since one of the images confirms a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, we assume that the 5G variant just like its 4G sibling will have an LCD display. Hopefully, this is an FHD+ panel. Worth noting that the device will be 8.5mm thin and will weigh just 185 grams.
Although Realme hasn’t detailed the entire list of specifications, the handset appears to be a rebranded Realme V13 5G for global markets. If that’s true, we already know many of the device’s specs.
