As expected, the device will run on the brand new MediaTek G96 chipset that allows the native support for 120Hz displays and 108MP cameras. Realme and MediaTek India exchanged a couple of tweets clearly indicating that Realme’s next phone will be powered by the newly released SoC.
And if the rest of the specs are to be believed, the Realme 8i will make use of the new features as it will sport a 120Hz 1080p+ display and a 50MP main camera. The chipset will be complemented by 4GB of RAM and 128GB of UFS 2.2 storage. A 5,000 mAh battery will be keeping the lights on.
