- Realme 8i may have been confirmed for an upcoming launch in India.
- Realme 8i is likely to come with a new MediaTek processor.
- Realme could soon launch the 8i alongside the 8 in India.
Realme has confirmed that it will launch the Realme 8i smartphone in India soon. In a Twitter poll, Realme India & Europe CEO Madhav Sheth asked his followers what the company should launch first. Should it be the Realme 8s or the Realme 8i or both? People voted for the third option. Previous rumors have also said that the Realme 8s and Realme 8i will debut side by side. MediaTek also jumped into the conversation on Twitter to confirm that its processor will support the upcoming 8 Series phone.
Sheth tweeted separately, stating “I am really looking forward to this MediaTek India collaboration”, to which MediaTek replied: “May you for the big reveal.” Realme India’s Twitter account joined the conversation saying, “Process this conversation and save 8!” “
All of these jokes on Twitter are about the upcoming 8 Series phones that have been rumored for some time. Realme’s Sheth had previously confirmed that the company would launch the 8s and 8i smartphones, but there was no information on the timeline. Even now, neither Sheth nor the company itself is talking about when the Realme 8i and Realme 8s will launch.
We recently learned of the existence of the Realme 8s and that it would be the world’s first smartphone with the new MediaTek Dimensity 810 processor. Now MediaTek is teasing that the Realme 8i will also contain a new processor, possibly the Helio G96. . There have been rumors surrounding this possibility. It will be a mid-range chipset that launched in July. It supports up to 120Hz refresh rate on the screen and up to 108 megapixel camera. Realme 8 Pro comes with a 108 megapixel camera, so these two phones are unlikely to be as well.
Other rumored specs for the Realme 8i include a 6.59-inch Full-HD + display with a punch hole in the upper right corner. The back of the phone may have a 50-megapixel triple-camera setup that would include a 2-megapixel macro sensor and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. For selfies, the phone will come with a 16-megapixel camera on the front. The Realme 8i can come with at least 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of UFS 2.2 storage. Inside the phone there may be a 5000mAh battery with fast charging through a USB-C port at the bottom.
Realme is preparing to launch the Realme 8i alongside the Realme 8 in India soon, but we’re not sure when at this point.
