Also, the Realme 8 and the Realme 8 5G are among the newly launched devices from the popular Chinese brand. But now, the company is hiking the price of these smartphones along with a few others.

The Realme 8 and the Realme 8 5G were launched with premium features, including a high-end camera setup. Now, the Realme 8 is priced at Rs. 15,999 for the base model of 4GB+128GB, which was earlier Rs. 14,499. The 6GB+128GB and the 8GB+128GB models are priced at Rs. 15,999 and Rs. 17,999, respectively.

Realme C11, C21, C25s Price Spiked
Realme 8 series isn’t the only one getting the price hike. Devices like the Realme C11 (2021), Realme C21, and the Realme 25s are also getting their price shot up. Here, the Realme C11 (2021) 2GB+32GB model is priced at Rs. 7,299. The 4GB+64GB model is priced at Rs. 8,799 against its original price tag of Rs. 8,499.

Worth Your Money?
To note, the hiked price tag is reflecting on Flipkart and the Realme India website. So, all new purchases will be witnessing a price hike of up to Rs. 1,500. The reason behind the price hike is still a mystery. However, both the Realme 8 and the Realme 8 5G pack some powerful specs for the asking price. Even with an extra thousand bucks, this is still a worthy buy.
