Striking Design

For its realme 8 series, the smartphone brand introduced a design language that’s different from its previous models, and it’s very apparent at the back part of the realme 8 Pro. Etched on its premium-looking rear part, which realme said is designed to mimic the night sky filled with stars, are the words "dare to leap" in prominent, bold letters.

Realme really did consider aesthetics when designing the back part of the realme 8 Pro, as this device is undeniably an eye-catcher. What's even more impressive is that its quadruple camera module also complements the smartphone's overall rear part look, unlike other devices where the cameras somehow look out of place.

The realme 8 Pro is available in Infinite Blue, Infinite Black, and a special variant of Illuminating Yellow. What makes the last one special, you ask? The realme 8 Pro Illuminating Yellow literally illuminates as it comes with a glow-in-the-dark design. This variant's "dare to leap" emblem and camera frame module is made with a special fluorescent material that absorbs light and lights up in the dark.

Immersive Display

The realme 8 Pro flaunts a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display, the same ones Samsung uses in some of their smartphones, so you can expect nothing less than vivid colors and sharp details.

Its 90.8% screen-to-body ratio makes its display look even bigger, making it ideal for those who are heavy on gaming and streaming. The display also has a 180Hz touch sampling rate, meaning it responds faster to touch commands. Meanwhile, the peak brightness for the realme 8 Pro is at 1000 nits, so using the device outdoors under the sunlight won't be a problem in terms of display visibility.

On its display, the realme 8 Pro also has an ultra-fast fingerprint scanner for more convenient and more secure device access.


Ask any realme user about the cameras realme devices have, and you’ll likely hear how good they are in terms of image quality. The realme 8 Pro is no different as its ultra quad-camera promises to deliver ultra-clear details. With its 108MP Infinite Clarity Camera with Samsung's ISOCELL HM2 sensor, 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens with a 119-degree field of view, macro lens with 4cm shooting distance, and a black and white lens with f/2.4 aperture at play, the realme 8 Pro takes mobile photography to a different level.

The cameras of the realme 8 Pro come with the new Super Nightscape Mode that utilizes artificial intelligence to lessen noise reduction and address dead pixels automatically for no-edits-needed night shots. Since the main theme of the outer design of the realme 8 Pro is inspired by the galaxy, realme also included a Starry Mode to capture the beautiful night sky in just one tap and without tweaking the professional shooting mode of the device.

The portrait modes of the realme 8 Pro also come in a variety of filters and features too. Moreover, it also has AI Mixed Portrait mode, allowing users to combine two shots into one frame.

Videography Features

The realme 8 Pro also has something to offer for videography hobbyists and enthusiasts. The device adds flavor to the usual time-lapse video mode found on smartphones to include "a dramatic new perspective" through the Tilt-shift function. When this mode is used, subjects on the videos look like miniature objects.

It also has Dual-View Video mode, which, as the name suggests, allows users to use the front and rear cameras at the same time. And then, there's the Movie Mode that gives users the ability to tweak several parameters to suit their taste, such as ISO, EV, and more.


All the powerful features of the realme 8 Pro need an equally capable battery, so realme equips the device with a massive 4,500mAh one.

It comes with what the brand calls the 50W SuperDart Charge that equates a 17-minute charge to 50% of battery life. The realme 8 Pro also comes with a Super Power Saving Mode to optimize apps and software on the smartphone without compromising battery life.

Powerful Internals

The realme 8 Pro isn’t only a camera-centric device. It also comes with powerful internals and gaming features that make the realme 8 Pro an ideal smartphone, even for those who play heavy and demanding mobile games.

The realme 8 Pro runs on an 8nm Snapdragon 720G octa-core processor coupled with an 8GB RAM and a 128GB onboard storage expandable up to 512GB.

Based on our first few hours of device usage, the realme 8 Pro, with its Android 11 OS with realme UI 2.0 on top, provides a smooth and lag-free experience. Watch out for our full review if this remained the same when we used the device full-on.


Although realme is relatively a neophyte in the smartphone market, given that it's only introduced as an independent brand years ago, quality products have been at the core of their business.

The realme 8 Pro is made durable through a series of tests. realme said that each realme 8 Pro released in the market has gone through 300,000 times power button testing, 150,000 times volume button testing, 20,000 times charging port in and out testing, 300 hours of temperature testing ranging from -40 degrees celsius to 75 degrees celsius, and 14 days of high temperature and high humidity testing.

Competitive Pricing

On top of all these features, the best thing about the realme 8 Pro is its competitive pricing. For just P16,990, you can get a premium device that’s apt for photography, videography, and gaming.

The realme 8 Pro is initially available via a flash sale at Lazada this May 12 (Get yours now at https://bit.ly/realme8proph) and from May 22 onwards on all channels. Watch out for our full review to have a closer look at this promising offering from realme.
