Starting off with the design, Realme has included a polycarbonate build for the 8i. The rear end of the phone features a glossy gradient finish. The camera bump is located on the top left of the rear end which houses a triple camera setup including an LED flashlight. The glossy finish, although results in an eye-catching appearance, is quite prone to smudges and fingerprints.
The front portion of the 8i houses a 6.6-inch display with a punch-hole type selfie camera. The side and top bezels are quite thin as compared to the bottom bezel. The power button is located on the right side of the phone along with the inclusion of the side-mounted fingerprint. The Realme 8i weighs 194g and is 8.5mm thick. The left side of the phone includes a volume rocker and the sim tray. The bottom part includes a type-c port along with a 3.5mm audio jack and a single speaker.

The new Realme 8i features a MediaTek Helio G96 which supports the previously mentioned 120Hz refresh rate. Realme and MediaTek teamed up to create an ultra-powerful processor. The clocks speed of the newly updated process is up to 2.05GHz CPU, which uses a mix of ARM Cortex-A76 & Cortex-A55, delivering a smooth and visually stunning gaming experience. As per the company, “The 120Hz refresh rate, double the rate of traditional screens, makes every swipe silky smooth. With even 6 different refresh rates, your phone can also conserve battery power.
