The Realme 8 Pro is the company’s first handset with a 108-megapixel sensor. Realme is still crazy about the 108-megapixel sensor on this phone. It claims that the Realme 8 Pro has the largest megapixel phone camera in the world. True, but the Realme 8 Pro isn’t the only smartphone with a 108-megapixel sensor. As Xiaomi introduced the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max a few days earlier, the 108-megapixel cameras were reduced from the premium range to under Rs 20,000. Realme may be a bit late to the game, but it does have a 108-megapixel handset that it wants you to purchase.
The Realme 8 Pro competes with the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max for Rs 17,999, mostly due to its 108-megapixel sensor. I’ll go over this camera in more depth later. Let’s talk about what else you get on the Realme 8 Pro now that we’ve stepped away from the camera for a bit. Nothing out of the ordinary. The phone is powered by the old Snapdragon 720G chip, which I’ve used before. It features an AMOLED display with a low refresh rate. And, as we’ve seen before, the battery supports 50W rapid charging. In reality, if you disregard the 108-megapixel sensor, the Realme 8 Pro isn’t much better than the Realme 7 Pro from last year. So, why is this camera such a big deal? What are the pros and cons of the Realme 8 Pro? I have a response for you.
This analysis is a bit different from the others in terms of form. That’s because the 108-megapixel sensor is at the center of everything. You must understand one thing before I tell you how good or poor this camera is. The 108-megapixel camera on the Realme 8 Pro (and Redmi Note 10 Pro Max) should not be compared to the 108-megapixel camera on the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra. This is due to the variations in sensors, device processing, and other under-the-hood devices. The 108-megapixel camera is powered by a Samsung ISOCELL HM2 sensor. It’s also significantly less effective than the Galaxy S21 Ultra’s ISOCELL HM3 sensor.
