Realme’s ‘Race’ is one of the first Snapdragon 888 phones
- Realme has introduced the “Race”, one of the first phones to use the Snapdragon 888 chipset.
- Details are scarce, but it will offer player-friendly performance and fast 5G.
- Only when it ships is another story.
Qualcomm has just unveiled the Snapdragon 888, but that doesn’t stop phone makers from boasting about using the new chip. Realme has teased the “Race,” its code name for a new flagship smartphone that will be one of the first phones to use the Snapdragon 888 inside.
The company doesn’t share many details over the phone – not surprisingly, if Qualcomm itself doesn’t reveal more about the Snapdragon 888 until December 2nd. However, it is ready to be a “game, video, and communication” powerhouse, and you can expect faster 5G over the X60 modem.
The “leaks” associated with the announcement provide some additional information. The design appears to have quad rear cameras, and it won’t save on storage space. Realme indicated that the phone would pair the Snapdragon 888 with 12GB of RAM, making this a high-end handset for the enthusiast. You can also expect 256GB of storage and Realmes version 2.0 UI.
Qualcomm said the 888 would offer faster graphics with high refresh rates, better AI performance, and updated image processing performance.
The company did not disclose a price or release date for the race. However, we wouldn’t expect it to be the very first to ship. Rumor has it that the Samsung Galaxy S21 will hit the market as early as January, and it could outperform Realme’s phone when the Snapdragon 888 launches. Don’t be surprised if you have to wait a few months to get your hands on this device.
