Realme Nepal has launched the Realme 8 in Nepal, approximately one and a half months after the debut in India. The phone has excellent performance and a long battery life. What about its display and software, though? Is it a true successor to the Realme 7, which was priced much higher than expected? Let’s discover out in our Realme 8 overview, which includes comprehensive specifications, pricing in Nepal, and availability.
Design & Display
The back cover has a two-tone back with a large “Dare To Leap” that the business refers to as “Infinite Bold Design.” Yes, that is infinitely bold and should be considered branding. On different angles, the stipe containing the text has a rainbow effect. The front of the phone is similar to the previous, with a corner hole-punch cutout for the selfie camera. The Realme 8 is thin and light, weighing only 177 grams and measuring 7.99mm thick.
In terms of display, the successor sports a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display with a refresh rate of only 60Hz. Given the pricing of the Realme 7, which was exorbitant for a 90Hz IPS LCD panel, I’d choose the Realme 8 over the Realme 7. The display, on the other hand, has the same 180Hz touch sampling rate, which is fantastic. Because it is AMOLED, the display can grow incredibly bright, up to 1000nits. Another advantage of having an AMOLED display is that the firm can integrate a fingerprint scanner in-display. However, given the market competitiveness today, it would have been preferable if there was at least a 90Hz AMOLED panel.
Camera & Performance
A 64MP lens serves as the primary sensor. However, it appears that it lacks the Sony sensor found on the Realme 7’s primary camera. Other cameras include an 8MP sensor with a FOV of 119°, a 2MP macro lens, and a 2MP B&W sensor. To stabilize your recordings, the back camera module supports UIS Max Video Stabilization mode. The device can also capture 4K at 30fps. A 16MP, f/2.45 Sony IMX471 sensor with UIS video stabilization is available for selfies.
The gadget is powered by the same MediaTek Helio G95 CPU as the Realme 7. It is an octa-core processor with Cortex-A76 cores running at 22.05 GHz and Cortex-A55 cores running at 62.0 GHz. Because of its powerful Cortex-A76 processors, the performance and, especially, gaming on it should be smooth. The phone has 4GB/6GB/8GB LPDDR4X RAM and 128GB UFS 2.1 storage, rather than UFS 2.2 or 3.1.
The phone has a 5000mAh battery with 30W Dart-Charge capability. It can fully charge your phone in 65 minutes. In the phone, you can use two SIM cards and a microSD card at the same time. It also has a 3.5mm headphone jack port. In terms of software, it is powered by realme UI 2.0, which is based on Android 11.
