Realme 8 series will launch in India in March. Realme 8 Pro has been leaked in the recent FCC certification which revealed a 4,500mAh battery and 65W fast charging support. Both Realme Narzo 30 Pro and Realme 7 Pro from last year only feature the same charging solution. Alongside the battery details, the Realme 8 listing also confirmed that the device will run on Android 11 with Realme UI 2.0 skin on top. Realme 8 Pro design was revealed recently at the Realme Camera Innovations event, confirmed to come with 108MP primary camera.

Realme 8 Pro has been confirmed to feature a 108MP Samsung HM2 sensor inside a quad-camera setup with a punch-hole design display. The 108MP camera will offer 3x zoom, New Starry Mode, tilt-shift and many more features.
Both the Realme 8 phones may include the 108MP camera, but chances are it will only be the top-end Realme 8 Pro. They are also said to come with 5G support. Realme 8 may come with 8GB RAM and run Android 11 OS out of the box. China’s 3C certification suggested 65W fast-charging support, and expect a beefy battery as well.
