Finally, Realme announced the Realme 8i as the successor the last year’s Realme 7i. With its powerful chipset, 120Hz display, 50MP camera, big battery, it is easily one of the best smartphones under 25000 in Nepal. Let’s have a look at the specifications, features, availability, and official price of the Realme 8i in Nepal.

Realme 8i Overview:

Display and Design

Let’s talk about display first. Here, we get a significant upgrade over Realme 7i. The Realme 8i sports a 6.6-inch IPS LCD panel with a Full HD+ resolution of 2412 x 1080 pixels. Also, the refresh rate has been increased from 90Hz to 120Hz. You can also switch the refresh rate between 30/48/50/60/90/120Hz and it supports a 180Hz touch sampling rate. Moreover, the panel supports a 100% DCI-P3 color gamut and has a punch hole cutout for a selfie camera.

Realme 8i Design and Display

Realme 8i looks similar to vanilla Realme 8. It has a rectangular camera module on the back that houses a triple camera setup and a LED flash. The phone is 8.5mm thick and weighs around 194g. Further, it is available in two different color options: Black and Blue.


This is the area where Realme has done some price cutting. It has a triple camera setup with a 50MP (f/1.8) primary sensor. It lacks an ultrawide angle lens which is a little disappointing. Similarly, the setup has a pair of 2MP macro and depth units for macro and portrait shots.

On the front, there is a 16MP selfie shooter with an f/2.1 aperture. Taking about the video quality, you can only record up to 1080p videos at 30fps from both rear and front cameras.

Performance and Memory

Similarly, Realme 8i packs a more capable MediaTek Helio G96 chipset. If we compare this chipset to Helio G95 (Realme 8) then there is no significant difference but it has slightly better gaming performance. On the software front, it ships with Realme UI 2.0 on top of Android 11.

Like most Realme budget phones, it is also available in two different memory configurations: 4/64GB and 6/128GB. It also features a dedicated MicroSD card slot for expanding storage.

The handset gets juice from a 5000mAh battery that supports 18W charging via a Type-C port. It features a side-mounted fingerprint sensor and still lacks a stereo speaker setup. Further, it supports 4G LTE, (dual-band) Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.1, and GPS.
