Realme 8 Pro Introduction
If the previous Realme series are anything to go by, we should not expect direct sequels with fully-fledged upgrades. More often, we’d get a slightly different take on the previous generation with a new highlight feature – a few nip and tucks here, a few cuts there, and probably the same price. And that’s what the Realme 8 Pro is all about. Also Read Poco X3 Pro
Unboxing the Realme 8 Pro
The Realme 8 Pro arrives in a familiar yellow box and has the usual contents. There is a SuperDart 65W-rated charger and a USB-A-to-C cable that can handle charging at 6.5A. The power adapter is a bit overqualified for the job as the Realme 8 Pro supports up to 50W charging, but we guess to bundle the chargers you have in stock rather than manufacture newer inferior ones.
The Realme 8 Pro borrows its display from the Realme 7 Pro – it’s a 6.4″ Super AMOLED panel with an extended 1080p resolution (411ppi), 60Hz refresh rate, and a small punch-hole for the selfie camera. There is a Gorilla Glass of unknown revision shielding the screen.
Performance and benchmarks
The Realme 8 Pro is based on the Snapdragon 720G chipset, the same one employed by the Realme 7 Pro. And the Realme 6 Pro before that. It offers an octa-core processor in a 2+6 configuration – 2×2.3GHz Kryo 465 Gold (A76-derivative) cores and 6×1.8GHz Kryo 465 Silver (A55-derivative) cores. The Adreno 618 is the GPU in charge of all things graphics.
There are two available configuration for the Realme 8 Pro – 6GB RAM with 128GB UFS2.1 storage and 8GB RAM + 128GB UFS2.1 storage.
The Realme 8 Pro packs good enough hardware for this class and can handle well games and heavy apps; it can do multi-tasking, too. There is no UI lag, and we did not notice any stutter whatsoever. The cooling is great, too, and helps for 99.6% stability score on the stress test we use – 3D Mark Wild Life Stress Test.
