Realme 8 Pro and Realme 8 will be launched in India on March 24. The company has confirmed the launch date and has also sent out the Invite for the same. The Realme 8 series will take on the recently launched Redmi Note 10 series in India.
The Realme 8 series will be launched on March 24 at 7:30 p.m. IST in India. The launch event will also happen simultaneously in the UK (2 p.m. GMT) and France, Germany, Italy, and Spain (3 PM CET). The Realme 8 series will succeed the Realme 7 series which was launched in India back in September 2020.
The launch invite confirms the 108MP camera on the Realme 8 series. While there is still no confirmation, the Pro variant is the only one that’s likely to feature the 108MP primary camera which was showcased recently. The Realme 8 Pro will use a 1/1.52-inch Samsung ISOCELL HM2 image sensor. While the Realme 7 series (7 Pro) made the 65W fast charging affordable, the Realme 8 series will try and democratize the 108MP camera for the masses.
The title for the cheapest phone with a 108MP camera currently belongs to the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max priced at Rs 18,999. The Realme 8 on the other hand is an upgrade from the Realme 7 and the specs for the same was teased by the Realme CEO, Madhav Sheth a couple of weeks back. Here is how the phone’s build-up after a few leaks.

This will be followed by three other cameras which presumably are ultra-wide, macro, and depth – going by the previous track record. The device will come with a bunch of new shooting modes as well.
The Realme 8 Pro will come with a Super AMOLED display and will be the first budget phone from the Realme number series to sport an in-display fingerprint scanner. The device is likely to be powered by the Snapdragon 730G chipset while there are also rumours of a 5G variant. A 120Hz high refresh rate and 65W fast charging are also expected.
