Announcement. Realme 8 5G - an inexpensive smartphone with weak cameras (+ mess)

Realme 8 5G smartphone announced in Thailand.True to the motto "there is never enough a mess", the guys from Realme made it look little like the almost namesake Realme 8 4G. But the newcomer is almost the exact twin of the Realme V13 5G device sold in China. Only the “Chinese” does not have an NFC module, the front camera is simpler, and the sets of supported 4G / 5G bands are different for the devices.

Chipset - MediaTek Dimensity 700. Good average power. About three hundred thousand points in AnTuTu8.

There is still a slight confusion about the amount of memory.The official website lists 4 or 6 GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of storage. At the same time, in all Thai stores, the price is indicated for the 8 + 128 GB version and only for it.

There is support for memory cards - a separate slot.

The screen is fine. Standard 6.5 ″ IPS-matrix. Slightly increased (up to 90 Hz) refresh rate is not a record, but nice. The resolution is high, 1080 × 2400 (405 ppi).

And with the battery, too, complete order. Large capacity - 5000 mAh. Charging is not very fast, but still 18 W, and not the standard ten.

Saved on cameras.The front camera has a resolution of 16 MP. Behind the trio 48 + 2 + 2 MP - the main module, macro with a fixed focal length, depth sensor. For clarity, of course, we should wait for at least some reviews and examples of photos. But, most likely, we will not wait for much.

The fingerprint scanner is in the correct position, i.e. from the side. There is NFC, Wi-Fi dual-band, Type-C is also in place.

9999 THB at the start of sales - about ₽24,500 ($ 322) for the 8 + 128 GB version.

The smartphone is also due to be announced in India tomorrow.
