Yesterday Realme 8 series launched in India starting at Rs.14,999 for the base variant of the vanilla version of the series i.e. Realme 8 4G. A lot of speculations were surfacing on the 5G version of the Realme 8 Pro prior to the launch claiming it will launch alongside the Realme 8 series in India yesterday. But at the time of yesterday’s launch, Madhav assured the launch of the Realme 8 series’ 5G smartphone sooner than ever. He mentioned in his tweet, “The 5G variants for #realme8series is under final stage of testing & launching soon!”
So now it is official that the Realme 8 series will have a 5G variant and it will launch soon in India. On the other hand, tipsters are claiming that the launch will be held next month i.e. in April, though it is not official yet because the company had not mentioned any return date in yesterday’s launch event.
Yesterday, a new Realme phone with model number RMX3241 was spotted in the database of Thailand’s National Broadcasting Telecommunications Commission (NBTC). This device is expected to launch in Thailand as Realme 8 5G and has also appeared in the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS), which hints at the imminent launch of its India launch. Both the certifications have not revealed any specification or features of this upcoming 5G device but along with the RMX3241 model, another Realme phone with RMX3242 has also appeared in the database of BIS. This might be the Realme 8 Pro 5G, or maybe something else.
