Realme is all set to launch a new smartphone under its 8-Series in India, namely Realme 8S 5G. The company’s CEO Madhav Sheth has confirmed that Realme will be the first brand to launch a phone that features the newly launched Mediatek Dimensity 810 processor.
Previously, Madhav Sheth also confirmed that there are some more Realme 8 Series devices are in the works and asked for suggestions during the AskMadhav Episode 28 that, Which one do you want to see first, Realme 8i or Realme 8s?
A few weeks ago, tipster OnLeaks also leaked the specifications and render of the Realme 8s on 91mobiles where he mentioned that the device is powered by the Dimensity 810 processor. Now, the processor is official, so we believe that the device Madhav Sheth is teasing is indeed the Realme 8s.
Let’s see the full specifications and expected price of the Realme 8s 5G.

The device may come in three variants – 6GB RAM + 128GB storage, 8GB RAM + 128GB storage, and the high-end 8GB RAM + 256GB Storage.
We can expect that the pricing of the smartphone will be somewhere between Rs 14,999 and Rs 19,999.
We are expecting that the 6GB+128GB variant of this smartphone will launch at the price of Rs 14,999, the 8GB+128GB variant will launch at the price of Rs 15,999, and the high-end 8GB+256GB variant will launch at the price of Rs 17,999.
