After building a hype for a few weeks, the Realme 8 and Realme 8 Pro smartphones went official in India last week. The company has already confirmed that it will soon announce a 5G version of the Realme 8 5G. It seems that the smartphone will hit the market as early as next month as it has been approved by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the United States
The Realme RMX3241 was recently seen with the Realme 8 5G moniker in NBTC Thai certification. It is also published by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) in India. Both certifications did not provide information on the specifications. However, the FCC’s appearance has shed some of its most important details.

The FCC listing shows that the Realme RMX3241 measures 162.5 x 74.8 x 8.5 mm and weighs 185 grams. The phone runs on Realme UI V2.0 and is powered by a 5,000 mAh battery. Some of the connectivity features supported by the handset include 5G, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, GPS, GLONASS, BDS, NFC and 5G.
A rear schematic of the Realme 8 5G found in FCC documents revealed that it has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. There are buttons on the left edge of the phone to increase and decrease the volume.
Madhav Sheth, CEO of Realme India, said last week: “We will have a Realme 8 5G version soon (but not that early). We need to understand that adding 5G with these features comes at an additional cost. “This indicates that the handset may go out of coverage by the end of April. The price of the handset is speculated to be somewhere between the Realme 8 and Realme 8 Pro, at Rs 14,999 (~ $ 204) and Rs 17,999 (~ $ 285), respectively.
