Realme X7 Pro Player Edition Could be the World’s First Smartphone to Feature Snapdragon 860 SoC

The Reale X7 Pro Player Edition could be the first smartphone to feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 860 processor


If you happen to be a Realme fanboy, chances are high you’re already aware of the fact that the company is working on a new X7 series of handsets that are slated for an early September launch. The two devices set to be launched include the Realme X7 and the Realme X7 Pro. In our previous article discussing these products, we had talked about the likelihood of both these handsets featuring a flagship-grade processor. Since that report, we have more or less confirmed that both the Realme X7 series devices will get different chipsets. The Realme X7 was spotted on Geekbench sporting the MediaTek Dimensity 720, while the Realme X7 Pro also made an appearance on the same portal with the MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ SoC. Today, we have come across a leaked poster that seems to indicate that the Realme X7 series will include a third handset called the Realme X7 Pro Player Edition and that it is likely to become the first smartphone to use the brand new Qualcomm Snapdragon 860 processor.

Without further delay, take a look at the poster below.

A second poster also reveals that the Realme X7 Pro Player Edition will use a 4500mAh battery. Previous leaks have already revealed that the X7 Pro will feature a 120Hz AMOLED panel with an in-display fingerprint sensor. There has also been talk about the X7 series featuring a 64MP primary camera. The rest of the specifications remain shrouded under mystery as of now. From the above poster, though, we can make out that the X7 Pro features a quad-camera setup at the rear and a punch hole for the front-facing camera. A second poster also confirms that the phone is 5G ready.

As for the Snapdragon 860 processor, very little is known about it as of now. Going by the naming scheme, it is likely to be slotted between the Snapdragon 855 from 2019 and this year’s Snapdragon 865. We should get more details in the next few days, though.
