Realme 8 5G, one of the cheapest 5G smartphones in India, will go on sale for the first time today. The new smartphone comes with a Dimensity 700 processor inside, which is among the most affordable 5G chipsets. The smartphone is a 5G version of the Realme 8 that the company launched some time back. But, besides being a 5G version, the Realme 8 5G brings features such as a 90Hz display that some people may find more appealing. The phone also has a setup of three cameras on the back and a 5000mAh battery.
The new Realme 8 5G also looks very different from the regular Realme 8. That is because, unlike the Realme 8 4G variant, the Realme 8 5G does not have a shiny back with the "Dare to Leap" branding. The Realme 8 5G looks a lot subtler than the 4G variant, and I think most people will go for that look on a phone. The Realme 8 5G comes in a polycarbonate body in two colours; Supersonic Black and Supersonic Blue.

Realme 8 5G features
The major problem with Android sometimes is the lack of adequate RAM. That is why the Realme 8 5G has an interesting feature called dynamic RAM expansion technology. This feature allocates some memory from the flash storage (ROM) and adds to the RAM you have on the phone. With the help of that, 4GB becomes 5GB while 8GB turns into 11GB. This system is helpful when your phone starts to freeze.
You also get the Super Nightscape feature on the Realme 8 5G, which you can use for low-light photography. This mode will help you click bright photos even when the surroundings do not allow that. The Realme 8 5G also has a Super Power Saving Mode, allowing you to use the phone for a longer time.
