The upcoming smartphone is likely to see an upgrade in specifications and features when compared to Realme 7. As per Geekbench, Realme 8 will have model number RMX3092.

The latest development comes from tipsters Mukul Sharma and Abhishek Yadav who posted on Twitter about model number RMX3092 and said that it is related to Realme 8. The same model number was spotted on the Geekbench listing. As per the listing, the device will be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 720 chipset with a base frequency of 2GHz. It will have 8GB of RAm and surprisingly, it will run Android 10 out of the box. It scored 2874 points and 8088 points in single-core and multi-core tests respectively.
