The phone is powered by the tried and tested Snapdragon 710 SoC, which is the same SoC used by them in Realme 3 Pro. Now, the phone comes with various RAM and internal storage variants including a 4/128GB and 8/128GB variant.

Talking about the battery, the phone comes with a 3765mAh battery, which supports VOOC 3.0 fast charging.
