realme 8i now in PH, available exclusively in Lazada at P1,000 off
Experience the phone's new #InfinitelySmooth MediaTek Helio G96 chipset and 120HZ ultra smooth display for as low as P8,990

Editor’s note: Since its entry into the Philippine market in 2018, mobile phone maker realme has gained a significant Filipino youth following by offering top-of-the-line features at affordable prices. One of their newest devices is the realme 8i. See their press release below.

realme, the Philippines’ number one smartphone brand for Q3 2021, invites Filipinos to do even more beyond their capabilities by recently unveiling the realme 8i, the latest addition to their widely successful 8 Series.

Announced via a livestream on November 16, the realme 8i promises #InfinitelySmooth capabilities as it is the first realme device to pack the powerful MediaTek Helio G96 chipset and a 120Hz Ultra Smooth display, allowing users to perform any task seamlessly.

“Filipinos are a discerning market, and it’s important for us at realme to deliver to all of their diverse needs. We’re doing this with the exciting launch of the realme 8i, a worthy new entry to what is already our undeniably successful lineup in the 8 Series. We can’t wait for our realme Squad to have their own #InfinitelySmooth experience when they get their hands on the realme 8i,” said Austine Huang, realme Philippines VP for marketing.

Delivering #InfinitelySmooth capabilities

The realme 8i gives users an #InfinitelySmooth smartphone experience thanks to the MediaTek Helio G96 chipset, the first realme device to pack the processor model. 

The G96 pushes the 8i’s performance by 65% compared to the previous 7i, and it is the only G9-series chip that can power a 120Hz display, which is one of the first smartphones at its price range to have such a display. It also helps the realme 8i provide a smoother gameplay experience with more fluid visual effects, something that Filipino mobile gamers will absolutely love.

The realme 8i also comes with a 6.6-inch LCD display, with six different refresh rates (30Hz, 48Hz, 50Hz, 60Hz, 90Hz, and 120Hz) that can help conserve battery power. The screen also has a dynamic brightness range, able to be as bright as 600 nits and as dim as 1 nit, letting you stay comfortable while you use your phone at any time.

Content creators also get a huge level up with the realme 8i’s 50MP AI Triple Camera setup. Its 50MP main camera with f/1.8 large aperture takes in enough light to make photos clearer and brighter. It also comes with a black and white lens for more artistic photos, and an ultra-macro lens with a 4-cm shooting distance to shoot up close in fine detail. Its 16 MP front cam lets you take crisp and clear selfies, and enhances them with AI beauty function, HDR mode, portrait mode, as well as a “Panoselfie” mode for wider selfies.

For the 6GB+128GB variant, the realme 8i’s performance is also boosted by its virtual RAM technology, which converts the phone’s internal storage space to RAM, increasing its total amount. The realme 8i lets you use 5 GB of virtual RAM to add to its 6 GB of existing RAM, increasing the phone’s smoothness.

Enjoy an #InfinitelySmooth experience today by getting the realme 8i for only P9,990 (4GB+64GB) and P11,990 (6GB+128GB) on the realme Official Store on Lazada. Early birds can get an exclusive P1,000 discount for both variants on Lazada starting at 12 midnight on November 17.
