Realme 8s 5G and 8i: up to 120 Hz and high resolution sensors under 200 euros

Something happens when we are long without having news from Realme, and what happens is usually that they are preparing a multiple launch. Thus, after having conveniently announced the arrival of the Realme Pad, they have also presented the new Realme 8i and Realme 8s 5G.

Two mobiles that are placed in the mid-range, although with quite a few differences in their characteristics. The Realme 8i follows in the wake of the Realme 7i and the 8s seems to be more in line with the Realme 8 5G, also presented this year.

Realme 8s 5G

Realme 8s 5g 01

The design of this mobile is quite reminiscent of the 8 5G for its edges, finishes and the camera module. It is a mobile that shows several of the current trends such as the color reflections on the back and less curved angles, with the front camera in a hole in the screen.

Speaking of the panel, we see a 6.5-inch IPS LCD with FullHD + resolution. Perhaps one of its strengths, given that it is not in the basics and has refresh rates and tactile sampling of 90 Hz and 180 Hz.

Inside it has MediaTek’s Dimensity 810, a 6-nanometer processor that has barely been presented for a month. It has variants from 6 GB of RAM and in the tray for its two SIMs there is space for a microSD (to have up to 1 TB of storage).

The battery is 5.000 mAH, having fast charging of up to 33 watts. It is a mobile that has WiFi 5, Bluetooth 5.1 and eye, audio minijack.

At the camera level, we see the modest commitment to a triple camera with a main sensor, a macro and a monochrome sensor, being as follows:

  • 64 megapixel main sensor with f / 1.8 aperture lens.
  • 2 megapixel macro sensor with f / 2.4 aperture lens.
  • 2 megapixel white monochrome sensor and lens with f / 2.4 aperture.
  • Front with 16 megapixel sensor with f / 2.1 aperture lens.

Realme 8i

The design of the 8i leaves behind the aesthetics we saw in the 7i and is much more similar to the new Realme 8s. Although in this case we see that the back is in gloss, do not kill as in the previous one. The front camera also pokes out through a hole in the screen, with some chin in the frame.

It is a somewhat less ambitious mobile than the previous one, but still maintains the FullHD + resolution on its 6.6-inch LCD panel. Yes, arriving patient 120 Hz in its refresh rate (and also 180 Hz touch response rate).

Also recently presented, the Realme 8i integrates the MediaTek Helio G96. A chip that allows that rate of refreshment and the most powerful Helio G to date. It is accompanied by 4 or 6 GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of storage.

The battery is 5.000 mAh and supports fast charging of up to 18 W. It also comes with Realme UI 2.0 based on Android 11 and the fingerprint reader on the side.

As for the cameras, we see that again the option is a triple camera with a higher resolution sensor and some secondary cameras:

  • 50 megapixel ** main sensor and lens with f / 1.8 aperture.
  • 2 megapixel macro sensor with f / 2.4 aperture lens.
  • 2 megapixel white monochrome sensor and lens with f / 2.4 aperture.
  • Front with 16 megapixel sensor with f / 2.5 aperture lens.
