Realme 8i arrival was confirmed by CEO Madhav Seth earlier this month.
In addition to this, Madhav also confirmed the India launch of another Realme 8 series phone dubbed Realme 8s. While recent leaks have told us much about the Realme 8s, details about the Realme 8i were a mystery until today. Notable tipster @OnLeaks via Digit has shared the specifications and renders of the smartphone of the Realme 8i.
According to the report, Realme 8i could be the most affordable phone in the Realme 8 lineup, which already includes Realme 8, Realme 8 5G, and Realme 8 Pro. As of now, Realme has not shared a launch timeline for the Relame 8i or 8s. Since the arrival is officially teased, we are likely a couple of weeks away from the launch announcement.
