Standout Features of the realme 8i
This smartphone carries a design that’s probably a combination of the realme 6 and the realme 8. Unlike the realme 8 and realme 8 Pro, it doesn’t come with that big Dare to Leap text on the back. It comes in two colors: Space Black, and Stellar Purple. It carries three exciting features: the new MediaTek Helio G96 processor, a 50MP AI Triple Camera system, and a 120Hz refresh rate display!
realme is one of the first phone makers to use the new Helio G96 in partnership with MediaTek. With this processor, the 8i is capable of having a 120Hz refresh rate display. The phone even has up to six levels of refresh rates: 30Hz, 48Hz, 50Hz, 60Hz, 90Hz, and 120Hz. It also enables better performance so you can run your games without worries.
