The CPU of the realme 8 5G is coupled with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. It also comes with a 5000mAh battery that supports 18W Type-C quick charging.

The display of the realme 8 5G is a 6.5-inch Full HD+ display with a refresh rate of 90Hz and a sampling rate of 180Hz. As for its cameras, it is equipped with a 48-megapixel Nightscape camera and a 16-megapixel primary sensor. Some of its other features include a 3-card SIM tray that supports 2 SIM cards with 5G Dual SIM Dual Standby and a dedicated microSD card slot that supports up to 1TB cards.
