Announcement. Realme 8 Pro - the spitting image of the ancestor or 108 megapixels for $ 250

Megapixel madness is taking over the world. Nobody is left out. And now, another patient.

Realme 8 Pro smartphone announced.Unlike the little brother Realme 8, which will only be sold in India for now, the Realme 8 Pro will be sold “globally”. At least in the same India and Europe. And on AliExpress.

The start of sales on AliExpres on March 29.Prices for early birds are $ 249.9 (₽19,400) for the younger version 6 + 128GB and $ 299.9 (₽23300) for the 8 + 128GB. What is a little annoying, we don't fit into the duty-free € 200 (₽18,000, $ 236). In Europe, only the older version will be on sale for now. € 279 (₽25,100, $ 330) or £ 279 (₽29,100, $ 382) depending on where you live.

In fact, the Realme 8 Pro is very similar to itspredecessor Realme 7 Pro. There is only one fundamental difference. The main camera was replaced. There was a Sony IMX682 with a resolution of 64 MP. Became Samsung HM2 resolution in the same insane 108 MP. However, the main shooting mode is nine pixels in one, i.e. the resolution of your pictures will actually be the traditional 12 MP.

Realme 8 Pro has already been given out to reviewers.I put links to the first few reviews under cat. Look for further ones on the smartphone page on our website. Unfortunately, with the examples of photographs, everything is dim so far. It can be seen that all the first reviews were made in a wild rush. But here, as an example, a couple of first-glance shots from Laptop Mag.

The rest of the cameras are unremarkable.A traditional set for the modern middle class. Front camera with a resolution of 16 MP. At the back, in addition to a 108MP super camera, there is a wide-angle camera, a macro and a depth sensor. 8 + 2 + 2 MP.

Iron.The beloved Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G chipset. On it, not only Realme 8 Pro is made, but also Realme 7 Pro and even Realme 6 Pro. "Power" is average, just under three hundred thousand AnTuTu points.

There is a lot of memory, but, however, not very fast. 6 or 8 GB LPDDR4X RAM. 128 GB UFS 2.1 persistent storage. Memory cards are supported, there is a separate tray for them.

6.4 ″ Super AMOLED screen.The resolution is high, 1080 × 2400 (411 ppi). But the refresh rate is usual, only 60 Hz. In terms of basic characteristics, the screen is exactly the same as that of its predecessor. But they promise that it will be somewhat brighter.

Battery with a capacity of 4500 mAh. Supports 50W fast charging. On the one hand, it is very fast. On the other hand, it is slower than the predecessor Realme 7 Pro, which is somehow a little offensive.

The fingerprint scanner is built into the screen, alas. There is an audio output. The NFC module seems to be everywhere except India. But in India and only in India, the Realme 8 Pro will be sold in a stunning yellow color.

Wi-Fi number five. There is no support for 5G networks, of course.

Whether Realme 8 Pro will be officially sold in Russia is not yet said.
