The Pro model is also expected to pack an sAMOLED display.

The company claimed that the feature takes 480 seconds to shoot 30 photos and generate a 1-second time-lapse video. Additionally, the Realme 8 series is also set to come with three new portrait filters, namely Neon Portrait, Dynamic Portrait, Dynamic Bokeh Portrait, and AI Color Portrait.
