Realme 8s, the latest smartphone from the stables of Realme, will go on its first sale today. The smartphone comes with the MediaTek Dimensity 810 processor, which is an upgrade over the Dimensity 800U processor that Realme has used on previous phones. The Realme 8s continues with the same design that the Realme 8 series arrived with earlier this year, but the specifications do not seem much inspired by the previous phones in the series.

In my first impressions, I found the 8s to be a decent phone. Although I have yet to take the phone through tests to find whether it is good for the money, the Realme 8s comes across as a phone that most people will go for, because of the design, display, and battery. Today is the first sale of the Realme 8s, so you can go ahead and read the first impressions to get an idea of how good or bad the phone is before finally deciding on buying it. Here are the details of the Realme 8s sale.
