That is wild!

The realme 8i goes sold out in 35 minutes on its exclusive early-bird selling on Lazada. This is after its successful debut via a live stream event on realme Philippines’ Facebook page and YouTube channel last November 16, 2021.

“We at realme believe in diversifying our technology to better serve the ever-changing digital needs of Filipinos. This is why it was very important for us to complete our ‘infinity line-up’ here in the country so our Squad can choose the right 8 Series smartphone ideal for their lifestyles,” shares Austine Huang, realme Philippines’ VP for Marketing. “We are grateful for the support of the realme Squad in making the 8 Series one of the brand’s most successful number-series offerings to date. Maraming salamat po!,” adds Huang.

This is the brand’s first smartphone to run on the MediaTek Helio G96 chipset and is complemented with other features such as a 120Hz Ultra Smooth Display, a 50MP AI triple camera, 5000mAh battery with 18W fast charge, 3-card SIM and microSD card slot (up to 256GB), and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.

The realme 8i is still available in nearly 500 realme stores and over 4,000 partner dealers nationwide and comes in two colors: Space Black and Stellar Purple. This is also available in two variants: 4GB+64GB and 6GB+128GB and can be purchased for PHP 9,990 and PHP 11,990 respectively.

In addition, from November 15, 2021, to January 22, 2022, customers who will purchase the realme 8i or any realme device with a minimum worth of PHP 5,000 at any realme flagship store, authorized dealer, or on realme’s official store on Shopee or Lazada can get a chance to win realme TechLife prizes and a new Mitsubishi Mirage G4 at the #realmeWithYou Christmas Raffle promo.
