This doesn’t seem like a premature confirmation or a mistake as Realme India Support has replied to some other users too, giving them a similar answer while also suggesting alternatives such as the Realme X7 and Narzo 30 Pro to those who do not want to wait.

Later this week, the Realme C20, C21 and C25 will launch on April 8 in India. Soon after, the Realme Narzo 30 will be unveiled, once again in 4G and 5G flavours. With so many offerings, it seems like Realme wants to have an option for all kinds of users in the sub-Rs 20,000 market

The company hasn’t specified how the Realme 8 5G series will differ from the 4G models, but we assume that the chipset will be the only point of distinction between them. Looking at the rest of the lineup from Realme, there are chances that these upcoming devices will be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 800U and Dimensity 720 processors.

Apart from that, the Realme 8 Pro (4G) has a 6.4-inch AMOLED display, a 108MP camera, 50W fast charging, Snapdragon 720G and a 4,500mAh battery.
