The Realme X7 Pro, on the other hand, has been spotted on a JD.com listing, which reveals that the device will feature a 120Hz AMOLED display with 1200nits of peak brightness and 4096-levels of brightness adjustment. The listing also includes a couple of images of the device, which showcase a quad-camera setup with a 64MP primary camera and a hole-punch cutout for the selfie camera. The device is rumored to pack in MediaTek’s Dimensty 1000 Plus SoC, clocked at 2.6GHz, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of onboard storage.
While we have plenty of details about the Realme X7 and Realme X7 Pro so far, we haven’t seen any information about the Realme X7 Pro Player Edition. Now, a new leak has surfaced on Weibo (reshared by @ishanagarwal24 on Twitter) that suggests that the Realme X7 Pro Player Edition will be the first device to feature Qualcomm’s yet unannounced Snapdragon 860 chipset. The new chipset is likely to be announced alongside the device on September 1st and it’s expected to fall somewhere between the Snapdragon 855 and Snapdragon 865, in terms of performance. The chipset will also offer 5G support, as mentioned in the image linked above.
As of now, we have no further information about the Realme X7 Pro Player Edition or the Snapdragon 860 chipset. However, we expect Realme to release more information in the days leading up to the launch. We’ll update this post as soon as we receive more information about the upcoming devices.
