Realme 8 5G was silently launched in Thailand on Wednesday, April 21. The mid-range smartphone comes with an octa-core MediaTek Dimensity 700 processor and a full-HD display with a 90Hz refresh rate as its main highlights, apart from 5G connectivity. It has a triple rear camera setup, headlined by a 48-megapixel primary “Nightscape” sensor. The new Realme phone is also scheduled to launch in India at 12:30pm IST on Thursday, April 22, and can be expected with the same set of specifications. It will be available for sale via Flipkart.

Realme 8 5G price, availability

The new Realme phone is available in a single RAM and storage configuration. Realme 8 5G is priced at THB 9,999 (roughly Rs. 24,000) in Thailand for the 8GB + 128GB storage model. The phone is currently available for pre-orders via various online retailers including JD.com and Shopee in two colour options — Supersonic Black and Supersonic Blue. It goes on sale starting May 3.

It should be noted that the Realme Thailand website lists the phone with two different RAM options – 4GB and 6GB. In terms of storage, the website lists 64GB and 128GB as the two available options. However, the retailers' listings suggest an 8GB + 128GB variant of the phone on their sites. Gadgets 360 has reached out to the company for clarity. This report will be updated when we hear back.
