The Realme 8 series will arrive on March 24, but the brand is jumping the gun on pre-orders, which are scheduled to start today at noon IST. The campaign, called “Infinity Sale”, will continue until the end of the week, and everyone who pre-ordered will be able to claim their device on March 25 – just a day after the official unveiling.
We received a press release, detailing the process at Flipkart.com and Realme’s own online store. Pre-ordering a Realme 8 or Realme 8 Pro includes an upfront payment of INR1,080 (about $15). The brand also promised a free gift during this blind sale, in which customers are technically pre-ordering a phone they haven’t even seen.
The remaining amount of the price can be paid on March 25, between noon and midnight. If a user decides not to go through, Realme will refund the money to the user’s account on Realme.com or the APAY wallet on Flipkart.
The Realme 8 series will bring the first 108 MP camera to the brand, but it will be reserved for the Realme 8 Pro. The vanilla Realme 8 will be an updated variant of the Realme 7 – same chipset and battery, but a Super AMOLED screen and a different alignment of the 64 MP quad camera.
