Realme 8 Pro preview

Realme has announced the launch of its Realme 8 series smartphones. The lineup consists of Realme 8 and Realme 8 Pro. The Pro variant goes up against the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max (review) as it comes with an AMOLED display and a 108MP primary camera. However, it misses out on a couple of features like the 120Hz high refresh rate, which can be found on the Xiaomi offering.
