Realme 8 5G and Realme 8i smartphones to soon launch in India


A couple of days ago, Realme launched its latest smartphone lineup in the Indian market — the Realme 8 series, which includes the Realme 8 and Realme 8 Pro. Now, the company is gearing up to launch a couple of other devices in the same series.

A new report claims that the China-based company could soon launch Realme 8 5G and the Realme 8i smartphones in India. This was also confirmed by Madhav Sheth, Vice President and CEO of Realme India and Europe.

During an interview with the Financial Express, Madhav Sheth said, “We will have a Realme 8 5G version soon (but not so early). We have to understand that adding 5G with these features will incur additional costs.”

While the launch date and the pricing details have not been revealed yet, the report speculates that the Realme 8 5G could be priced between Realme 8 and 8 Pro, which are Rs 14,999 ($~207) and Rs 17,999 (~$248). If that turns out to be true, then the phone could be the cheapest 5G in the Indian market.


Currently, there is no information available about the upcoming Realme 8i smartphone but going by the name, the device is likely to be the toned-down variant of the standard Realme 8 smartphone in India. We expect to know more about the phones in the coming weeks as the launch date nears.


Apart from these two phones, the company is also preparing to launch its flagship smartphone — Realme GT in the Indian market. The phone has already been launched in China and when it goes official in India, it could be the most expensive from the company.
