Realme 8 5G was launched in India with a MediaTek Dimensity 700 SoC processor and triple rear cameras. The smartphone comes with a 90Hz screen refresh rate, 180Hz touch sampling rate, and packs a 5,000mAh battery. While the handset runs on Android 11 out of the box. Now, some of the interested users are asking whether there will be a Custom ROM for Reame 8 5G or not anytime soon.
Although MediaTek MT6833 Dimensity 700 5G delivers an excellent performance in day to day usage and during gameplay for hours (thanks to dedicated trigger buttons), in some aspects the device loses badly such as lackluster camera quality, average software experience, slightly on the heavier side that may not come in handy while longer gameplay sessions, more than average audio quality, etc.
So, you may ask why there is no custom firmware available yet for the Reame 8 5G. Well, the same question has been asked hundred times on multiple online forums such as XDA Developers and the answer is surprising a bit. So, without wasting any more time, let’s jump into the topic.
Will There Be a Custom ROM for Reame 8 5G?
According to plenty of users, even though the AOSP development for the Realme 8 5G will be slow enough or may not happen due to the MediaTek MT6833 Dimensity 700 5G processor, there should a dedicated forum page for this model.
While some are saying that the MediaTek Dimensity 700 5G chipset has an open resource architecture so there would be no issues at all in terms of the chipset-specific device. Whereas some are assuming that even the XDA Developers team hasn’t allocated the Reame 8 5G forum yet that means there will be no hope for the Custom ROM development of this device.
To be precise, there is no connection between a custom firmware development and a dedicated forum for the device model. Whereas there are plenty of device models available that don’t have any dedicated forum page on XDA but their custom ROM has been available.
But it seems that plenty of Reame 8 5G users are literally requesting over and over again to create a new forum for it individually to the XDA Developers team for a while. We should mention that the Reame 8 5G is the most affordable device for smartphones in the Q2-Q3 2021 most probably.
Luckily, there is a new device forum requests page available on the XDA Developers website where you can ask for adding the Reame 8 5G Forum by voting for it. Just click on the mentioned link and post your comment by only typing the device model (i,e; Reame 8 5G). It’s quite surprising that even the Reame 8 5G has become open source, there is no Custom ROM (Aftermarket Firmware) available yet.
Hopefully, XDA or other custom firmware developers will soon release a stable Custom ROM for the Reame 8 5G. Till then, we’ll have to wait for it.
