According to a news report, Realme’s next flagship device will be code-named “Race” and will have the model number RMX2202.
The Race will be powered by the Snapdragon 888, which is the name of Qualcomm’s new flagship chipset (rumoured earlier to be the 875). This will be among the first S888-based phones to reach the market. The chipset will be paired with 12GB of RAM and 256GB storage and runs Android 11 with Realme UI 2.0 on top.
An image of the phone shows a quad camera with an “Oreo” style bump. However, we there wasn’t any information on the modules inside that bump as of yet. There’s also no word on whether the Realme Race will feature Realme’s 125W UltraDART charging or if that feature will debut with another device.
Realme CEO Madhav Sheth tweeted “Qualcomm 8__” before the chip’s official announcement and a few hours later tweeted about “a surprise” for December.
It doesn’t seem likely that the phone will launch this month. Realme X50 models were unveiled in late February and launched in early March, for example. This new phone may come slightly earlier than that, but till then, all we can hang on to are teasers like these.
