A daring and differentiating design
If we compare it with the previous models of this series, this realme 8 Pro debuts a more stylized design, with a body made of plastic and glass in which it is has decreased in both thickness and weight. For example, compared to the realme 6 Pro, presented about a year ago, it has been reduced the thickness in 1 millimeter and the weight in 20 grams and all this without sacrificing the capacity of your battery.
The other great aesthetic change can be seen in its rear part, which debuts a new rectangular module for cameras and led flash and incorporates an imprint of the brand’s motto, , with a really spectacular mirror effect.
On the other hand, the front of the realme 8 Pro maintains the design line of its predecessor with a screen that occupies a large part of the front of the device, with hardly any frames and with a hole in the screen located in the upper left corner.
Screen and battery: two aspects in which this realme 8 Pro does not disappoint
This realme 8 Pro has a screen 6.4-inch Super AMOLED with Full HD + resolution 2400 x 1080 pixels, with a 60 Hz refresh rate and a 180 Hz touch sampling rate that will offer us a better answer when playing. In addition, it has a maximum brightness of 1,000 nits which guarantees that we can see your screen in full sunlight without any problem.
A higher, the panel is equipped with a light-sensitive on-screen fingerprint sensor that promises an unlocking that is as fast as it is accessible. To this, add a “Always On Display” mode, which allows us to have access at all times to information such as date, time, percentage of remaining battery and pending notifications.
Another of the strengths of this realme 8 Pro is their autonomy, since it has a 4,500 mAh capacity battery with 50W fast charge, thanks to which we can add up to 50% battery life in just 17 minutes, and up to 100% in just three quarters of an hour. This hardware is accompanied by various software modes to optimize the consumption of the device, such as a special night standby mode. which minimizes the energy consumption of the terminal while we are sleeping.
The differential point of this terminal are its cameras
If there is one aspect in which this terminal stands out compared to its predecessors, it is none other than the photographic section. The new realme 8 Pro is equipped with a 108 megapixel main camera, which uses the 3rd generation ISOCELL S5KHM2 sensor manufactured by Samsung. A sensor that promises high-quality photos thanks to its 1 / 1.52-inch size and technology Pixel Binning, which allows combining 9 pixels in 1 to achieve results typical of a professional camera.
This sensor also has Smart-ISO technology that automatically chooses the best ISO setting based on the environment, regardless of the light level, something that will allow us take good photos even in unfavorable conditions.
This main sensor is accompanied by a camera 8 megapixel ultra wide angle with focal aperture f / 2.4 and a field of view of 119º with which we can capture landscapes and large groups of people, a 2 megapixel macro camera, with a focal aperture f / 2.4 ideal for taking quality photos of very small objects from 4 centimeters away, and a 2 megapixel black and white portrait camera with focal aperture f / 2.4, which will help the main lens to capture more light, thus improving image contrast and achieving higher quality portraits.
