If you are looking for the cheapest 5G phone right now, Realme 8 5G just got a new variant in India. And this variant makes Realme's recently launched phone the most affordable 5G phone. Realme has introduced a 64GB storage version of Realme 8 5G that costs Rs 13,999 -- Rs 1,000 less than what the previous base variant cost. Realme 8 5G was launched with only 128GB storage but the RAM on them varied, but now there is a second storage choice.

Realme 8 5G arrived in India last month as the 5G version of Realme 8. But it was more than just a 5G counterpart. Not just does the Realme 8 5G bring next-generation connectivity, it also has a 90Hz display that is far better than having the 60Hz screen you see on the regular Realme 8. The phone is also quite different in terms of design. Instead of the flashy and reflective finish on the Realme 8, the Realme 8 5G brings a subtle finish in two colours; Supersonic Black and Supersonic Blue.
