The launch date for Realme 8 5G is April 21, the Chinese company announced on Friday via its social media account. The new Realme phone is an upgrade to the Realme 8 that was launched in India last month. The Realme 8 5G has a gradient back finish without the company’s “Dare to Leap” trademark. The 5G version of the Realme 8 is said to have recently appeared on some certification sites. It was teased to launch in India along with other markets.
The launch date for Realme 8 5G has been announced on the official Facebook page of Realme Thailand. A teaser video has also been posted on the Facebook page that gives us a glimpse into the upcoming Realme phone.
The video shows the Realme 8 5G from behind with a gradient in a black shade. The phone doesn’t carry the “Dare to Leap” tagline that is featured on Realme 8. However, some recently leaked images had suggested the slogan on the back of the Realme 8 5G as well.
The teaser video also shows that, unlike its 4G variant, the Realme 8 5G has a triple rear-view camera with a 48-megapixel primary sensor. The regular Realme 8 has a quad rear camera with a 64-megapixel primary shooter.
If we combine the details of the phone suggested in its teaser video with the information previously reported, the Realme 8 5G will likely be offered as the rebranded Realme V13 5G, which was launched in China last month.
The Realme V13 5G also has a 48-megapixel primary camera and a variant without the company’s “Dare to Leap” slogan. A US FCC listing recently suggested that the Realme 8 5G will have a 5,000 mAh battery and weigh around 185 grams, which is the specs of the Realme V13 5G.
Realme is also teasing the launch of the Realme 8 5G in India. However, it is currently unclear whether India’s launch will take place before Thailand’s announcement on April 21st.
