Realme X7 series is arriving on Tuesday and we expect two phones – a vanilla Realme X7 and a mightier Realme X7 Pro. Today reports from China claim there is going to be a third version, dubbed Realme X7 Pro Player that will have a Snapdragon 860 chipset, as opposed to the Dimensity 1000+ in the regular Pro.
Yes, the image does say Qualcomm Snapdragon 860 – it is an unofficial chipset that will likely be unveiled alongside the device. It appears the new platform will be a middle ground between Snapdragon 855 and Snapdragon 865.
This isn’t the first time Realme has launched a Player Version of its phones, although it would be a first to have a new chip. The X50 Pro 5G flagship, introduced in February, had an updated version for gamers with improved cooling and extra layers for better heat dissipation – it was simply called X50 Pro Player and never escaped China.
Is the X7 Pro with Snapdragon 860 will be official outside its domestic scene? We are yet to see next month when the Realme X7 lineup appears globally without the X in the name.
