Today we’ve got one of the most affordable, 5G smartphones in the world.. This is the realme 8 5G and the recommended retail price is from 199 pounds.. You can actually get it even lower than this with an early bird offer, which we’ll be talking about later. Big thanks to realme for sponsoring this video.. If you’re, a regular on the channel, you’ll, already know who realme are. As a 5G leader, it’s realme’s mission in 2021 to accelerate and popularize 5G technology in its key markets like the UK and Europe. Let’s, go ahead and get this unboxed and see what it has To offer. So inside the box you’re, initially presented with a welcome message. There’s, a SIM card tool, some paperwork, as well as a clear case which is still included at this price.. Another thing that is included, which we don’t get included on many of the devices, is an 18 watt fast charger. As well as that you have a USB Type, A to USB Type C cable., And here it is.. The first thing, you’ll notice, is just how thin it is.. This is the thinnest 5G smartphone in its segment coming in at just 8.5 millimeters thin, and it weighs just 185 grams. We’ve got what realme called the Dynamic Speed Light Design., And this is a supersonic black which uses a lenticular patterned process to present a premium mirror Effect. And the realme 8 5G is also available in a supersonic blue color.
Let’s. Now take a look at the display.. This is it’s 6.5 inch, Full HD, plus 90 Hertz ultra smooth display., So you do have in 90 Hertz refresh rate, which is going to make everything a lot smoother.. You also have 180 Hertz touch sampling rate, making everything very responsive. With a peak brightness of 600 nits. Again having a display with 90 Hertz at this price is very, very impressive. To power the realme 8 5G.. We have the MediaTek Dimensity 700 5G chipset.. Now this is a really impressive chipset, because it gives you a good amount of performance.. So this will be great for your day to day as well as gaming., But also it brings 5G to the masses.. Having 5G is super convenient. If you’re in an area that has 5G support, you’ll really appreciate the higher speeds, with lower latency., Whether that be for gaming, downloading apps or streaming movies., But not only that with the Dimensity 700. You also have support for dual 5G SIM cards with dual standby., And that means you can have two 5G Sims on the realme 8 5G active at the same time. And what’s. Even more impressive is as well as space for those two SIM cards in the triple slot SIM card tray. You also have space for a micro, SD card., So you can expand the storage on the realme 8 5G and you can get 128 gigabytes of onboard storage with eight gigabytes of Ram.
. Now one of the things that you might be thinking is: okay. You’Ve got two 5G SIM cards at the same time.. How is that going to affect battery life? Well, the realme 8 5G has a feature called smart 5G power saving.. Now this can intelligently sense. The surrounding signal environment and seamlessly switch between 4G and 5G without any switching time., And this achieves 30 lower power consumption compared to phones without this feature.. But on top of that you do have a massive 5000 milliamp hour battery, which is going to last. You all day, long. It’s, definitely quite impressive, how realme have managed to fit in such a large battery in a device that’s this thin and this light.. Of course, you do get that 18 watt charger included out of the box., So you’re not going to have to go out and get that separately. And let’s. Now talk about the cameras., So upfront we do have a 16 megapixel selfie camera, which is within that punch. Out. And then we have a triple rear facing camera setup, with a primary 48 megapixel nightscape camera.. And then you have a black and white sensor which is going to help with portraits, as well as a macro camera which will help you get closer up to your subjects.. Now, if we take a quick look around the device, we don’t have anything at the top.. On the left hand, side we have the SIM card tray with the volume rocker.
. On the right hand, side we have a power button, which also doubles up as a fingerprint scanner. And it’s a very, very fast., And at the bottom we have a USB Type C port. The bottom firing speaker as well as a 3.5 millimeter headphone jack. Again something else that we really don’t see on many of the smartphones, these days. For software. We have realme UI 2.0 out of the box and that’s based upon Android 11., And it gives you over 100 customizations., And this is something that I personally really like about. Realme UI.. It really allows you to make your device your own.. You can easily customize everything from your icons to even choose between lots of different, dark, modes., So that’s everything that you get with the reralme 8 5G. And, as mentioned all of that is for a recommended retail price of 199 pounds.. However, I did mention that there’s an early bird offer. – And if you do get this early, you will be paying just 179 pounds. 179 pounds for a 5G capable device with a 90 Hertz refresh rate. 5000 milliamp hour battery dual 5G SIM card support a micro SD Card slot, a 3.5 millimeter headphone jack. You’ve got all of these features for a very, very competitive price.. If you want to go ahead and pick one of these up, I’ll be leaving a link down in the description below., You can pre order now on.. This will be available from the 20th of May.
. Now, if you’re somebody who’s, maybe not fully ready for 5G, maybe it’s not fully supported in your area at this time., And you want to save a little bit of money, then you can always check out the realme 8.. The realme 8 offers a lot of what the realme 8 5G has, and it comes with a 6.4 inch. Super AMOLED display a 64 megapixel AI quad camera, which includes an eight megapixel ultra wide angle, lens. The same 5000 milliamp hour battery, but with 30 watt dock charge, which is very very fast., And the MediaTek Helio G95 processor.
