The country’s no. 1 smartphone brand for Q1 2021, realme, enables Filipinos to capture the infinite possibilities of 5G technology with the launch of the realme 8 5G, available first on Shopee on June 25.
The new realme 8 5G delivers top-notch 5G experience without compromise
Unveiled via a special live stream event on the realme Philippines Facebook page and YouTube channel, the realme 8 5G is the brand’s latest innovation as it eyes to lead the fast-growing 5G segment in the Philippines. As 5G infrastructure develops at a rapid pace in the country, realme is committed to providing 5G access and connectivity to as many Filipinos as possible.
With cutting-edge 5G technology, exceptional speed, and all-around functionality, the new 5G smartphone from realme is bound to set a new standard for 5G-ready smartphones in the mid-range category.
Redefining the 5G experience
Designed to elevate the 5G experience in the mid-range segment, it comes packed with next-generation 5G technology powered by the Dimensity 700 processor. It mixes two highly capable Arm Cortex-A76 cores in its octa-core CPU operating up to a speedy 2.2GHz. Dimensity 700 uses the leading 7nm production processor, which is up to 28% more power-efficient than an equivalent 8nm process. This allows for high performance while efficiently consuming power.
It is ideal for heavy data users as it comes equipped with a 5000mAh massive battery with an 18W Type-C quick charge. It also supports Smart 5G Power Saving to avoid strain on its battery life, achieving 30% lower power consumption than handsets without the Smart 5G feature.
In terms of display, the realme 8 5G comes with a 6.5-inch Full HD+ screen with a 90Hz refresh rate and maximum 180Hz sampling rate. Capable of producing 90 frames per second, the 90Hz display has a refresh rate that is 50% higher than the conventional 60Hz display, resulting in a seamless and smooth visual experience with every swipe of the screen.
Other features include a 48MP Nightscape Camera and a 16MP Primary Camera with AI Beauty Selfie functionality. It also includes a 3-Card SIM Tray that supports the use of 2 SIM cards with 5G Dual SIM Dual Standby and a dedicated micro-SD card slot, expandable up to 1TB.
