Just now we had reports of Realme planning to launch a new selfie centric U-series phone with Helio P70 SoC. Now, a new Realme phone bearing model number RMX1833 has made its appearance on the benchmarking portal Geekbench and is being speculated to be the upcoming Realme 3.
As per the GeekBench listing, the alleged Realme 3 is powered by the same MediaTek Helio P60 chipset which they used with their firstmost smartphone, i.e. the Realme 1. Furthermore, the device packs in 4GB of RAM and runs on Android 8.1 Oreo operating system. As far as the scores are concerned, the phone scores 1,560 points in single core tests and 5,926 points in multi-core tests.
Though the device is speculated to be the successor of Realme 2 that came some time ago with Snapdragon 450, there are no specific reports to confirm the same. Recently, Realme India’s CEO Madhav Seth exclaimed that the company plans to launch a couple of devices before March 2019 and hence this new phone may come by next year.
To recall, the company first introduced Realme 1 with a Full-HD+ display, single rear camera, MediaTek Helio P 60 SoC and no fingerprint scanner, after which came the Realme 2 having certain improvements like Fingerprint scanner, dual cameras but also with downgrades like HD+ display and Snapdragon 450 SoC. Since then, the company has used Qualcomm chipsets for phones like Realme 2 Pro (SD660) and the entry-level Realme C1 (SD450). Now, launching a phone with P60 again is only possible under the Realme 1 series, and thus it has a strong possibility to come as the Realme 3.
Moreover, Madhav Seth also confirmed that the just-launched P70 would power the next Realme phone and it is coming soon. He has also mentioned that while the phone will be a game changer in its price segment, it will not be the successor of the Realme 2 or 2 Pro, which as per other reports is a U-series phone. Anyways, let’s wait for the upcoming leaks and reports to reveal more about the phone. We expect the company to launch new phones soon. Stay tuned.
