Realme 8s leaks, official images and specs are out
Unsurprisingly given its usual new phone release pace, Realme is working on its next device, and today a huge leak brings us its specs and some official-looking images too.
The device in question is said to be called Realme 8s, and in spite of the lack of 5G branding, this will be a 5G capable smartphone. In fact, it’s a bit of a confusing addition to the Realme 8 family. Because of the 5G support, it can only be viewed as a a slight improvement over the Realme 8 5G, which it is. We’re not sure whether it will end up being sold alongside all the other Realme 8 branded handsets or not.
Realme 8s leaked images
Anyway, let’s dive into the specs. The Realme 8s is said to have a 6.5-inch display (unknown if LCD or OLED) with 90 Hz refresh rate, a 64 MP primary rear camera, and a 16 MP selfie snapper. At the helm sits MediaTek’s Dimensity 810 SoC, paired with 6/8 GB of RAM and 128/256 GB of storage. The phone will run Android 11 with Realme UI 2.0 on top, and it has a 5,000 mAh battery with 33W fast charging support.
So we have the screen size and refresh rate of the Realme 8 5G, the main camera of the Realme 8, the same selfie snapper as on all the other members of the family, and the same battery capacity as both the Realme 8 and 8 5G, but with faster charging than both of those. Oh, and the chipset is new to the series.
The Realme 8s will also have a side-mounted fingerprint sensor (which seems to lean the display choice towards LCD, but that’s not even “confirmed” by a rumor right now), a purple color version, and a grand total of three rear cameras.
