The mid-range of realme was begging, but we finally know all the details of the realme 8 and, in addition, the realme 8 5G, a very ambitious proposal for the Chinese company, since it means having the cheapest 5G mobile on the market.
A few weeks ago we told you our opinion of the realme 8 Pro, a mobile that does not come with a specification sheet loaded with large numbers, but that boasts a great balance between software, hardware and photographic equipment.
It seemed strange to us that he arrived alone , but this 2021, due to different complications in the technology sector, we are seeing that it is a constant and some members of the different families arrive before others.
Now it is the turn to complete the range with the realme 8 and realme 8 5G, two phones that have more differences than it seems and that will seek to conquer very different users.
The key for 5G to reach the realme 8 is, basically, the processor . After the good work of the Dimensity 800 in the Reno 4Z 5G, we have really opted for the Dimensity 700.
It is the new generation of MediaTek processors that has a good CPU capacity, a sufficient GPU to play games and, in addition, a 5G modem in a 7 nanometer lithography. The SoC has 8 cores, two of them at 2.2 GHz.
The battery is 5,000 mAh and the load is 30 W with Dart Charge technology from realme and the company has introduced Smart 5G Power Saving technology that changes from 4G to 5G network when the situation requires it to optimize autonomy.
It is a DualSIM phone prepared for SA 5G networks and the heart of the software is realme UI 2.0 running on Android 11.
The screen is IPS and has a diagonal of 6.5 ", maintaining the semi-compact line of the realme 8 family. The resolution is FUllHD + and a novelty in the 8 series is that it has a refresh rate of 90 Hz and a sampling of 180 Hz.
In the photographic section we find the most humble specifications of the family, since it is clear that the 5G model bets on this communication technology and on the power of the Dimensity 700 as its main values.
Thus, we have a 48 megapixel main camera that is accompanied by a black and white camera for portraits and a macro. On the front there is a 16 megapixel f / 2.1 camera and, yes, we have all the realme creativity modes to enjoy both with photography and video.
The screen goes to 60 Hz, but the panel is SuperAMOLED of 6.4 "with FullHD + resolution . The design is striking and the best thing is that it weighs only 177 grams with a thickness of 7.99 millimeters. We are happy that there are manufacturers that return To bet down to 8 millimeters and 190 grams, the truth, and in the photographic section we have a configuration similar to that of its older brother.
