OPPO’s subsidiary brand Realme is finishing things off for the launch of Realme 8s 5G and Realme 8i officially. Realme has just sent the press note to the media that both the models will gonna release on September 9, 2021, with MediaTek processors out-of-the-box. Previously, the company has released the Realme 8 and 8 Pro in March and then the Realme 8 5G in April.

While the Realme 8s 5G will become the world’s first-ever smartphone to have the MediaTek Dimensity 810 SoC. It’s also mentioned that both smartphones will come with the Dynamic RAM Expansion (DRE) feature that’ll allow users to use the internal storage of the device to expand the RAM limit virtually. Although we’ve already seen that the user experience or app running in the background doesn’t improve that much.
