    The price for the 4GB RAM + 64GB variant of the Realme 8i in India is Rs. 13,999. The phone is also available with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage for Rs. 15,999.

HDFC Bank credit, debit, or Easy EMI customers and ICICI Bank credit or credit EMI customers who purchase the Realme 8i will receive a Rs. 1,000 discount.

    Realme 8i Design

    As for the back, Realme 8i is coated in glossy plastic with an ombre design and rounded corners. On the back, there is a camera module with three cameras and an LED flash. The power button and fingerprint scanner are located on the phone’s bottom. There are minimal bezels on the front, as well as the size of the punch-hole, which are both important factors to consider. Weighted at 194 grams and plated in a glossy finish, the feel in the hand will be excellent.

    Realme 8i Display

    Realme 8i has got one of the premium displays available in the market. Yes, the display features a 120Hz refresh rate and you can switch between 30Hz, 48Hz, 50Hz, 60Hz, 90Hz and 120Hz. Apart from this, the peak brightness of 600nits is also in favour of this device along with 180Hz of touch sampling rate and FHD+ resolution. This is particularly good for gamers and content lovers. 

    Realme 8i Processor

    Powering the Realme 8i is the Helio G96 processor along with Mali-G57 MC2 GPU. So, the performance here is going to be average, though a snapdragon chipset would have been preferred. The absence of 5G makes the future of this device dark, as everyone is looking for a 5G device these days. As for the RAM and storage, there is plenty. Yes, you have got 4GB/6GB RAM and 64GB/128GB storage available in the Realme 8i. There won’t be any issue while using the device, as it comes pre-installed with Realme UI 2.0 based on Android 11. 

    Realme 8i Camera

    The camera section is the second attraction of the Realme 8i. There is a whopping 50MP triple rear camera setup installed on the device. It consists of a 50MP primary sensor, a 2MP Macro Lens and another 2MP Macro Lens. As for the primary sensor, you can expect excellent photography, however, don’t expect much from the other two lenses. The absence of an ultrawide sensor is something that goes against the rear camera setup. As for the front, you’ve got a 16MP selfie camera, which can take decent shots. 

    Realme 8i Battery

    You don’t have to worry about the fuel here. Realme 8i comes loaded with a massive 5000 mAh battery that is capable of lasting for the whole day. For refilling the battery there is 18W fast charging support, which is less considering the present demand and competition. For connecting the charger, a Type-C charging port is available at the bottom of the device. 

    Realme 8i First Impressions

    The display, primary rear camera, design and battery capacity are in favour of the Realme 8i. The rest of the features like the absence of 5G, average chipset, no ultra-wide-angle lens and low fast charging capacity are against this device. If you are looking for a more powerful device with 5G, you have got other options as well.
