Cut to the chase

Realme 8 specs (expected)

Realme’s CEO Madhav Sheth had an image of a box that is likely to be the upcoming Realme 8, the Realme 8 Pro was also in the image along with Realme’s Realmeow mascot. According to the box package, the Realme 8 will come with a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display which is an upgrade from the LCD panel on the Realme 7. 

However, the box doesn’t mention anything about the refresh rate. So, it is likely that Realme will sacrifice the 90Hz high refresh rate for Super AMOLED display - unless it surprises us with a combo like the Redmi Note 10 Pro.

Consistent camera performance

While Realme has given us a very capable camera, the performance with the camera is something that stayed consist throughout. With the Realme 8 series, we expect the company to provide polished software and capable hardware. 

Build quality

Realme 7’s build quality was very average and felt pretty basic. We hope to see the Realme 8 with a better build with a frosted glass-like design on the back. 

Super AMOLED + High refresh rate

Brands are trying hard to brings this particular to the lowest price point possible. The Redmi Note 10 Pro and Pro Max recently priced at Rs 15,999 and Rs 18,999 have the 120Hz + Super AMOLED panel and we’d like to see that with the Realme 8 series as well.
