After launching the Narzo 30 series in India, Realme has now teased the launch of its upcoming Realme 8 series in the country. The series has been teased by the company’s India CEO, Madhav Sheth, who took to Twitter to share this information.
While the company explicitly doesn’t mention the series in its tweet, the tweet does enough to hint that the company is teasing the Realme 8 phones. The cryptic tweet mentions a #InfiniteLeapWith8 which is a good enough hint that the company is hinting at the Realme 7 successor. Interestingly, the tweet also hints that the upcoming series could offer 108MP cameras as it has an attached image that mentions 108MP cameras. Although we’re not sure if all models will feature 108MP cameras, it is expected that at least one of the models will house this lens. For now, the company hasn’t revealed any more details, but the company has promised more details tomorrow.
A great breakthrough ahead!
