Realme 3 Gets Certified by IMDA in Singapore, Launch Imminent?

Realme, as many of you might be aware, is the fastest growing smartphone brand in India currently. Its budget Android smartphone, the Realme 2, which was launched in August this year, is among the most popular smartphones in its segment. While the Realme 2 has been on the market for only four months now, it looks like Realme is already preparing to launch a possible successor. An unannounced Realme smartphone with the model number RMX1821 has been certified by the Info-communications Media Development Authority (IMDA) in Singapore.

Realme 3 Launching Soon?

The IMDA certification page only tells us the RMX1821 is a mobile phone with WCDMA, LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS support. No information regarding the hardware specifications of the smartphone have been revealed by the listing. Since India is the main focus market for Realme, we expect the Realme 3 to be launched here before other countries.

As for the hardware specifications, we can expect the Realme 3 to offer some significant upgrades when compared to the current Realme 2. While the current model features a “regular” notch, the Realme 3 could come with a Dewdrop notch display similar to the Realme 2 Pro and Realme U1 smartphones. As confirmed by the Realme CEO recently, the Realme 2 is also expected to come with Google Lens support right out of the box. In terms of performance, the Realme 3 will likely be a decent upgrade over its predecessor. Previous leaks have suggested the smartphone could be powered by a MediaTek Helio P60 processor. The Realme 2 runs on an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor, clubbed with up to 4GB of RAM. On the software front, the Realme 3 will probably debut with the latest Android 9.0 Pie-based ColorOS 6.0 out of the box.

While the IMDA certification certainly suggests the Realme 3 might be made official soon, there is still no word on exactly when that might happen. Seeing how the Realme 2 wasn’t a direct successor to the Realme 1, there is a small chance that the Realme 3 may not be a direct successor to the Realme 2. In that case, Realme may continue selling the Realme 2 even after the Realme 3 is launched.

Realme 3 Could Come Powered By MediaTek Helio P60 SoC, 4GB of RAM

Shortly after MediaTek announced its latest Helio P70 processor last month, Realme confirmed that it would be the first brand to launch a smartphone powered by the chip. Realme CEO Madhav Sheth has hinted at the possibility of the company’s next smartphone featuring VOOC fast charging technology as well. A new Realme smartphone has now appeared on the Geekbench benchmark database, running on a MediaTek Helio P60 chipset. The unannounced Realme smartphone bears the model number RMX1833 and runs on a MediaTek Helio P60 octa-core processor.

The unannounced RMX1833 smartphone has been caught on Geekbench running on an octa-core 12nm MediaTek Helio P60 processor, the same chip that powers Realme’s first smartphone, the Realme 1. Realme switched to Qualcomm Snapdragon chipsets for its newer Realme 2, Realme 2 Pro, and Realme C1 smartphones. Now, however, it appears the company might be working on a new smartphone powered by a Helio P60 chipset. As mentioned earlier, Realme is also developing a smartphone powered by MediaTek’s new Helio P70 chipset.

Apart from revealing the MediaTek Helio P60 processor, the RMX1833 listing on Geekbench tells us the smartphone is equipped with 4GB of RAM and runs on the Android 8.1 Oreo operating system. In terms of performance, the handset achieved a single-core score of 1,560 points and a multi-core score of 5,926 points. Both the single-core and multi-core scores are slightly on the higher side when compared to the average scores achieved by the Realme 1. Since this is the first time that the RMX1833 model number has been spotted online, no other information regarding the handset is available currently.

However, it is possible that the device may be a successor to the Realme 2, which, as most of you might be aware, is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor. Even though the MediaTek Helio P60 may not be as impressive as the newer Helio P70, it is still a significantly more powerful chipset than the Snapdragon 450. If the RMX1833 is indeed the Realme 2 successor, we don’t expect it to be made official anytime soon.
