The launch date for Realme 8 5G is set for April 21, the Chinese company revealed through its social media account on Friday. The new Realme phone will be an upgrade to the Realme 8 which debuted in India last month. The Realme 8 5G is teased for having a degraded rear finish, without the company’s “ Dare to Leap ” branding. The 5G variant of Realme 8 has also reportedly appeared on some certification sites recently. He was teased to go into India with other markets.
The official Realme Thailand page on Facebook announced the launch date for the Realme 8 5G. A teaser video has also been posted on the Facebook page which gives us a preview of the upcoming Realme phone.
The video shows the Realme 8 5G from its back sporting a gradient finish in a black shade. The phone does not carry the “Dare to Leap” tagline that featured on the Realme 8. Some recently leaked images, however, had suggested the tagline on the back of the Realme 8 5G as well.
The teaser video also reveals that unlike its 4G variant, the Realme 8 5G has a triple rear camera setup with a 48-megapixel main sensor. The standard Realme 8 comes with a quad rear camera setup with a 64-megapixel primary shooter.
If we combine the details of the phone suggested by its teaser video with the information previously reported, the Realme 8 5G is likely to become a renowned Realme V13 5G which was launched in China last month.
The Realme V13 5G also has a 48-megapixel main camera and a variant without the company’s “ Dare to Leap ” slogan. A US FCC listing recently suggested that the Realme 8 5G would have a 5,000mAh battery and weigh around 185 grams, which is within the specifications of the Realme V13 5G.
Realme is also teasing the launch of Realme 8 5G in India. However, it is not clear at this point whether the launch in India will take place before Thailand’s announcement on April 21.
