The launch date for the Realme 8 5G has been scheduled for April 21, according to the Chinese company’s social media site. The new Realme phone will replace the Realme 8, which was released in India last month. The Realme 8 5G is rumored to have a gradient back coating, but no “Dare to Leap” branding. Recently, the 5G version of the Realme 8 was allegedly discovered on several certification pages.
The Realme 8 5G’s launch date was revealed on the official Realme Thailand page on Facebook. A promotional video for the new Realme phone has also been shared on the company’s Facebook page.
The Realme 8 5G is seen in the video with a black gradient finish on the rear. The handset doesn’t have the same “Dare to Leap” tagline as the Realme 8. However, some newly leaked photos have suggested the tagline on the back of the Realme 8 5G.
The Realme 8 5G, unlike its 4G counterpart, has a triple rear camera configuration with a 48-megapixel main sensor, according to the teaser footage. The standard Realme 8 has a quad-camera configuration on the back, with a 64-megapixel main camera.
If the specifics of the phone indicated by its teaser video are combined with the information previously mentioned, the Realme 8 5G is most likely to be a rebranded Realme V13 5G, which was released in China last month.
The Realme V13 5G also comes with a 48-megapixel main camera and a model without the company’s “Dare to Leap” slogan. According to a recent US FCC listing, the Realme 8 5G would have a 5,000mAh battery and weigh about 185 grams, which is similar to the Realme V13 5G’s specs.
