Realme Teases A Flagship Smartphone With Snapdragon 855 Plus
Realme, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer, was established back in the year 2018. Initially, Realme was introduced as a subsidiary of OPPO Electronics Corporations but is now an independent company altogether. The company had its focus set on the newer generation or youth, striving to provide strong performance with stylish and pleasing designs. The Realme brand has been warmly received in the Indian market and have seen growth since its initial approach in the country. Now, the company is reportedly making a bold new step towards more premium high end smartphones
In a fresh post on shared on Chines social media website,Weibo, Realme has teased a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus powered smartphone. The post arrives after a mere couple of hours past the official announcement of the mobile chipset. Realme addressed the launch of the latest mobile chipset with a simple welcoming online. It means that a future Realme smartphone might be planned for release which would carry the most powerful SoC made by Qualcomm till date. The move would be a major step as it would mark the first time that the company shifts away from its affordable range of smartphone offerings.
The newly launched Realme X is a great example as it is the latest launch which features the Snapdragon 710 mid range processor. In comparison, the Snapdragon 855 Plus boasts various improvements across the board on both its CPU and GPU; making it faster than the standard SD855 which is seen on devices like the Samsung Galaxy S10 (US and China variant) and Xiaomi BlackShark 2. The implications are massive as this implies that the upcoming Realme handset could potentially be a flagship or gaming smartphone. It is plausible as the gaming centric shift is popular within its targeted demographic.
The launch of a Realme device with the best Qualcomm chipset will heat up the competition at the low priced premium smartphone segments. Xiaomi’s latest K20 series are one such example with great price to specification value offerings. It means that the soon to be unveiled device could be priced lower than most OEMs with their premium handsets. However, no concrete details are available and only speculations can be made. We await an official announcement from the company and more updates will be provided soon.
