Realme’s ever-growing range of 5G smartphones is good for the market. The latest one in this range is the Realme 8 5G. The brand-new smartphone is the 5G version of the Realme 8 that the company launched last month. There are many differences between the specifications of the Realme 8 5G and the Realme 8 4G. And that is why you have two distinct phones for under Rs 20,000.
Realme 8 5G smartphone brings several features, including a 90Hz display that should be a standard thing on a phone. A 90Hz or a higher refresh rate on the smartphone display means things like scrolling will look super smooth. And this smooth interface is most noticeable when you play games, such as Call of Duty Mobile. The phone is also the first one with the MediaTek Dimensity 700 processor inside, which is a low-cost chipset. And that is why the Realme 8 5G is the cheapest 5G phone in India.
