Mystery Realme Device Leaks On Geekbench, Might Be The Realme 3
Realme is a fairly new company, but, they have already left a mark in the heavily crowded Indian smartphone market. The company launched their first smartphone, the Realme 1 back in the month of May. Post that, they have launched several other devices in the country which are the Realme 2, Realme 2 Pro & Realme C1. All the smartphones launched till date have received a warm welcome from the consumers. And recently, yet another Realme device, codenamed RMX1833 has been spotted on the Geekbench app with a MediaTek MT6771v (Helio P60) Processor.
The Geekbench listing reveals a smartphone with 4 GB of RAM & the Helio P60 processor. Most notably, the same processor & RAM configuration is also available on the previously launched Realme 1 smartphone. Apparently, it is a different device because of the non-identical model numbers of the two. Additionally, the device scores a much higher multi-core score than the Realme 1.
The device gets a 5,926 multi-core score which is around 1,000 points higher than Realme 1’s 4,986. It also has a higher 1,560 Single-core score which is 145 points more than Realme 1’s 1,415. The company must have highly optimised their ColorOS to churn out a much higher Geekbench score out of the device.
Can It Be The Realme 3?
Not long ago chip maker MediaTek, announced their Helio P70 chipset & reports in the past have claimed that Realme will be the first company to launch a P70 powered smartphone. Clearly, the device in the listing does not have the Helio P70 SoC. Albeit, taking chronological order into consideration this might be the Realme 3. Also if the device is a successor to the Realme 2, then the company might carry forward some features from the former.
The Realme 2 is a good phone but the company did receive some criticism for their choice of processor on it. Realme chose the Snapdragon 450 processor in the Realme 2. The Snapdragon 450 had inferior performance than the Helio P60 which was present on the Realme 1. But the Realme 2 covered lost ground with a fingerprint sensor, bigger battery, and dual rear cameras.
All in all, if the Realme 3 does make use of the Helio P60 processor, the company is expected to launch it with the fingerprint sensor and the bigger battery like its predecessor.
