Realme 8s specifications and design have appeared on the Web ahead of an official announcement. The new Realme phone is said to launch in India soon alongside the entry-level Realme 8i. The Realme 8s would sit next to Realme 8, Realme 8 5G, and Realme 8 Pro. Key highlights of the upcoming phone could include a 90Hz display, triple rear cameras, and 33W fast charging. The phone is also said to have a MediaTek Dimensity 810 SoC, which could be an upgrade to the existing Dimensity 800.
91Mobiles has reported the details about the Realme 8s in collaboration with tipster Steve Hemmerstoffer, who handles the Twitter account @OnLeaks. Some renders posted by the website suggest that the Realme 8s would be quite similar to the previous Realme 8-series phones, including the Realme 8 and the Realme 8 5G. The phone appears to have a volume rocker on the left, a SIM card tray, an integrated fingerprint sensor, and a power button on the right.
The leaked renders show the Realme phone in a purple hue, though it is speculated to have some other colour options as well.
