realme Philippines first made its 5G push with the realme X50 Pro 5G last December 2020. After launching the realme 8 and realme 8 Pro last month, realme is bringing its first Number Series phone with 5G cellular technology. Say hello to the realme 8 5G!
Standout Features of the realme 8 5G
The Philippines recently got a lot of 5G smartphones with the hope of pushing 5G to more people. Thanks to the MediaTek Dimensity 700 processor, realme is able to make 5G more accessible to its customers. The company also added a 5G Power Saving mode so you don’t have to worry about battery drain.
This phone has aspects that it got from the realme 8 and 8 Pro like the 8GB RAM, 128GB internal storage, and a 16MP front camera. Unlike its siblings though, this smartphone has slight differences such as:
- 6.5-inch IPS LCD display with a 90Hz refresh rate
- Triple rear cameras: 48MP main camera, 2MP macro camera, and 2MP depth sensor
- 5000 mAh battery with 18W fast charging
This phone does come with realme UI 2.0 based on Android 11. It comes in two colors: Supersonic Blue, and Supersonic Black.
Pricing and Availability
The realme 8 5G costs P11,990 with 8GB of RAM and 128GB internal storage. It will be available in realme Concept Stores and kiosks, authorized retailers, and through e-commerce partner Shopee. In fact, you can take advantage of the early bird sale on Shopee on June 25 with a P1,500 discount! (That now brings the price down to P10,490!)
You can take advantage of Home Credit and credit card installments for 6 months at 0% interest. Both Globe and Smart will also offer this smartphone through its postpaid plans soon.
