Snapdragon 888 is Qualcomm's latest premium processing chip that will pretty much power every Android flagship smartphone next year. And following the announcement, Realme has announced that it has already started the development of a new smartphone - codenamed Race, and says that it will be powered by the new processing chip.
According to a tweet by the official Realme UK account, the phone will be the first flagship in the market to be powered by this new processor. This means that we can expect the phone to be launched at the quiet start of next year. Although we had not much information about this flagship previously now it has sparked an interest among the consumers. The codename Race wasn't just a random pick. From the recent reports, we can safely assume that Race is short for Realme Ace.
And now when the industry's interest has been shifted to the Realme race, we have seen some leaks around the phone as well. The leak by GSMArena reveals that the phone will bear the model number RMX2202. The same leaks also suggest that the phone will run the latest Android 11 with Realme UI 2.0 out of the box. The phone will feature 12GB of rAM and 256GB of storage, though we expect that there will be other configurations too. The image also shows that the phone has a Snapdragon 888 processor under the hood.
There are also some images of the rear side of the phone on the internet which shows that the phone will feature four camera sensors inside a round shaped camera housing. On the right side, the phone has an LED flash. The display has a curved glass back and the design is almost identical to that of the OPPO Ace2 that was launched in April this year. Unfortunately, we don't know anything about camera specs for the time being. But hopefully, we will be getting more information on this phone in the near future. It is also important to mention that since the tweet was made by Realme UK, we expect the Realme Race will be launched in Europe and UK next year before it lands in other parts of the world.
