- Realme 8 Pro and Realme 8 are the brand new phones from the company.
- The Realme 8 Pro flaunts a mighty 108-megapixel main camera on the back.
- Realme 8 has a Super AMOLED display, a big upgrade over last year's Realme 7.
Realme launched the 8 series earlier this week. Contrary to what rumours had suggested, there are only two phones in the series right now. There is a Realme 8 Pro with the mighty 108-megapixel camera and a Realme 8. Both phones are the successors to last year's Realme 7 Pro and Realme 7, but when you take a closer look at the specifications of all four phones, you will see they are not very different. This means the Realme 8 Pro and Realme 8 are not big upgrades over the Realme 7 series counterparts from last year.
The most notable differences, however, are in the cameras and displays. The Realme 8 Pro brings the 108-megapixel camera while the Realme 8 has a Super AMOLED display -- the only big upgrades over what the Realme 7 and Realme 7 Pro bring.
