Realme is working on its next phone, which is unsurprising considering the company’s customary rapid release schedule, and a massive leak today has revealed its specifications as well as some official-looking photos.
Despite the lack of 5G branding, the handset in question is reported to be called Realme 8s, and it will be a 5G capable smartphone. In reality, it’s a bit of a befuddling new member of the Realme 8 family. It can only be considered a modest improvement over the Realme 8 5G due to the 5G support, which it is. We’re not sure if it’ll be sold alongside the other Realme 8 devices or not.
Anyway, let’s get down to business. The Realme 8s is rumored to boast a 6.5-inch display (not sure if LCD or OLED) with a refresh rate of 90 Hz, a 64-megapixel primary back camera, and a 16-megapixel front camera. MediaTek’s Dimensity 810 SoC is at the helm, with 6/8 GB of RAM and 128/256 GB of storage. The phone will run Android 11 with Realme UI 2.0 on top, and it will come with a 5,000mAh battery that supports 33W rapid charging.
So we get the Realme 8 5G’s screen size and refresh rate, the Realme 8’s main camera, the same selfie snapper as the rest of the family, and the same battery capacity as both the Realme 8 and 8 5G, but with faster charging than both.
