The upcoming Realme 8 series has been expected for a while, but it seems that we've finally got an official announcement date. Realme recently released a video starring Madhav Sheth, the VP of Realme and CEO of Realme India and Europe. In the video, Sheth teases that a camera phone with a 108MP sensor will "go live on 24th March". 

This 108MP camera phone is expected to be included in the Realme 8 series, which is rumored to include a standard and a Pro variant. While the standard Realme 8 is set to have a 64MP sensor, the Realme 8 Pro is due to feature the 108MP sensor instead.
