Tech and lifestyle brand realme won Filipino consumers' hearts (and pockets) by bringing in impressive features on their smartphone offerings at affordable prices. Three years after launching in the Philippines, the same formula still works for the brand, which is now at the top of the smartphone competition in the country.

The ‘i’ in realme 8i stands for incredible. Here are the reasons why.
The ‘i’ in realme 8i stands for incredible. Here are the reasons why.

realme is the no.1 smartphone brand in the Philippines for the third quarter of 2021, according to top international research firms Canalys and IDC. To maintain this achievement, the fast-growing tech company continues to put in the market more smartphone options for Filipinos to choose from. One of these is the realme 8i, unveiled only in November. Here are its #InfinitelySmooth top features.

MediaTek Helio G96 chipset

Let’s start with one of the most vital points of the realme 8i -- its internals. The said smartphone is the first realme device to carry a MediaTek Helio G96 chipset that takes the job of pushing the realme 8i’s performance battery by 65 percent, compared to its predecessor, the realme 7i.

With the MediaTek Helio G96 chipset, the realme 8i also brings to the table high stability or a smooth run even after prolonged use and a 120Hz refresh rate for a stutter-less visual experience.

Virtual RAM technology

If this is the first time you’ve heard (or read) about virtual RAM technology, it is an innovation that allows a part of a device’s storage to be used as augmentation for its RAM or memory. It makes a smartphone work even more smoothly as there’s additional RAM to accommodate tasks done on a device.

The bigger storage variant of the realme 8i comes with 5GB of virtual RAM supporting its existing 6GB RAM, plus 128GB of onboard memory. On the other hand, the smaller 4GB+64GB model doesn’t carry virtual RAM technology.

Massive screen

Flaunting a 6.6-inch screen, the realme 8i is a suitable device for consuming all your favorite multimedia content, enjoying your favorite mobile games, and powering through a productive day. This smartphone’s display has six different refresh rates -- 30Hz, 48Hz, 50Hz, 60Hz, 90Hz, and 120Hz. Choosing higher refresh rates delivers smooth scrolling and seamless frame transitions, while the lower ones allow battery conservation.

Cameras apt for creators

The 50-megapixel triple AI primary camera of the realme 8i is made to unleash the creativity of smartphone users. It has a black and white portrait camera that adds artistry and drama to photos and a macro lens for those obsessed with detailed, close-up shots.

Another camera feature of the realme 8i that’s perfect for social media content creators is its Dual-view Video mode, making video collaborations more uncomplicated and more fun. With this, the front and rear cameras of the realme 8i can simultaneously record, offering two different perspectives.

For its front camera, the realme 8i has a 16-megapixel shooter with AI beauty function, HDR mode, portrait mode, and the “Panoselfie” mode, which is a panoramic camera function for the front snapper for wide-angled self-portraits.

Sizable battery

With 5,000mAh of juice in the realme 8i, users don’t have to worry about bringing heavy and bulky power banks everywhere they go. This smartphone’s battery is enough for a day of use, and when recharging is required, they can do so for a short time since the said device supports 18W fast charging.

Even with only 5 percent of battery life remaining, the realme 8i can still last up to 35.2 hours on standby and can be used to play music for two hours, 2.4 hours of calling, and 1.3 hours of online chat when its Super Power Saving Mode is activated.

Get the realme 8i for only PhP 9,990 (4GB+64GB) and PhP 11,990 (6GB+128GB) via realme’s official Lazada and Shopee stores and its website.
