Realme 8 5G Official in Indonesia in June 2021

Realme 8 5G Official in Indonesia in June 2021. Realme is again presenting the latest Smartphone Realme 8 5G to Indonesia. After Realme 8 and 8 Pro which were launched last April, it is now the turn of Realme 8 5G which was officially released to the Indonesian market on Wednesday (16/6/2021).

Marketing Director of Realme Indonesia, Palson Yi claims that Realme 8 5G is here to answer the needs of Realme fans who need a 5G smartphone at an affordable price.

Despite the nearly identical name, the Realme 8 5G differs from its two "siblings," the Realme 8 and the Realme 8 Pro, and comes with a number of improvements.

In terms of performance, for example, this 5G smartphone is powered by the Mediatek Dimensity 700 5G chipset developed in 7nm manufacturing, combined with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage which can be expanded with a 1 TB microSD card.

With this chipset, Realme claims its newest smartphone is capable of producing internet speeds (downlink) of up to 2.77 Gbps.

In terms of design, the Realme 8 5G has a 6.5-inch IPS LCD screen with Full HD Plus resolution, 90 Hz refresh rate and up to 600 nits brightness.

At the top there is a punch hole module containing a 16 MP (f / 2.1) selfie camera. On the back, on this side, there are three cameras arranged in a square module.

These three cameras each have a resolution of 48 MP (f/1.8), 2 MP (f/2.4, macro) and a black and white camera lens for the blur effect.

In terms of power, the Realme 8 5G is supported by a battery with a capacity of 5,000 mAh with support for fast charging or 18W fast charging, lower than the Realme 8 with 30W or the Realme 8 Pro with 50W.

To further support its power, this smartphone is equipped with the Smart 5G Power Saving feature, which is used to save smartphone power when the 5G network is not available.

If this device is out of 5G coverage, then the smartphone will automatically changes (preference) to 4G network, so the battery is 30 percent more efficient," said Product Manager Realme Indonesia Vasco Rambot at the same event.

Other supporting roles are the fingerprint scanner module that is provided on the device frame, NFC technology and Dynamic RAM Expansion (DRE), which can "expand" RAM capacity up to 11 GB if needed.

The DRE work process itself is almost the same as the Extended RAM technology introduced in the Vivo X60 series and RAM development in the Oppo A74 where the smartphone "borrows" 3GB of space from internal storage.

Reviews of the Realme 8 5G

The following is an explanation of the realme 8 5G performance:

The Realme 8 5G is packaged in a bright yellow box which is the characteristic color of the Realme smartphone packaging that has been marketed to date. The mode of the device we borrow is the black version of the Realme 8 5G 8 128 GB.

Upon opening the box, we received 1 unit of Realme 8 5G, 18W fast charger, USB Type-C cable, soft protective cover, protective film, SIM card tool, user manual, circular with important information about the smartphone and warranty card.

Unlike other smartphones, Realme 8 5G places a number of buttons for their roles in various parts of the body. For example, for the volume button, if it is placed on the right side of the body on some smartphones, this smartphone is on the left side.

We were a little awkward when we first started operating this smartphone so we had to get used to it. Just like the tray hole for installing the SIM card, this smartphone places it on the left.

For the button to turn on or off the screen, this smartphone is placed on the right side of the body. We really like the design because it's attractive and has a unique side body design.

Realme 8 5G is the first smartphone in Indonesia to use the MediaTek Dimensity 700 chipset, so that anyone can enjoy its performance without paying more, and the role of NFC for non-cash transactions.
