the still cheaper of realme is presented by surprise in India


realme presents in India the cheapest of its new best sellers, and here we show you what this realme 8 offers us below 200 euros.

it has really surprised me again just a few hours ago, and no wonder because from the fastest growing manufacturer in the history of the mobile industry you would always expect the best. In fact, it is that with them we have lived 18 months of a spectacular evolution democratizing cutting technologies premium to bring them closer to the general public and to more pockets.

This time, it has really given me one more step with that best-selling family that the realme 8 Pro wants to improve, and that this time it came accompanied by a smartwatch and some new wireless headphones, leaving us only with the model 'Pro' already waiting for that rumored realme 8 that has been featured later, from India and when no one was waiting for him.

A new realme 8 was also in the oven, even more economical and attractive!

Their conception is identical, they are both blood brothers and share design, materials and even almost all of a hardware platform which does differ in memory and chipset configuration, lowering costs to make yourself even more attractive with the hug to MediaTek.

Perhaps that is why it has been presented in India, and is that this type of ultra-economical terminals that raise the level of their benefits succeed in an emerging market which is undoubtedly the most attractive in terms of sales figures currently globally.

Well-known design, well-known hardware, and just a change embracing MediaTek to cut costs.

Today, chances are that no one in the industry can offer you so much for so little.

I have to admit that certainly the realme 8 does not stand out too much in any respect, and yet I only miss the NFC chip that would allow us to pay with the mobile accompanying the integrated fingerprint reader. That's a good thing, and it can't be denied.

I suppose that if one day this model reaches our markets, it will tweaked to enable this option, almost essential in Europe but not as widely used in India and other Asian countries, which is where it is headed at first this more restrained version of the realme 8 that lowers its costs below that almost psychological barrier of 200 euros.

A strange design for many, almost strident, but very iconic and in two really elegant shades.

Be that as it may, I doubt that any other manufacturer in this sector can offer so much for so little, and is that the most basic model of this realme 8 costs only 175 euros with really spectacular hardware at this price. In India, here and in any other market.

And that indeed this model swap Qualcomm's Snapdragon 720G for a MediaTek Helio G95 that offers more questions, especially with after-sales support, in addition to increase your battery capacity by 500 mAh up to 5,000, with fast charging of 30W.

These are the only two modifications compared to a realme 8 Pro which in your case will arrive in Spain, at a price starting at 279 euros for its model with 8 GB of RAM and accompanied by the realme Watch S Pro and the realme Buds Air 2.
