As soon as Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 went official in early December 2020, multiple OEMs confirmed that they will be releasing phones with this chipset. One of those companies was realme, which even shared its device’s codename (Race). Now, this handset has been certified by BIS, and hence, it could launch in India as well.
This very phone is now listed on India’s BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) certification bureau as well. Hence, the realme Race may go official in India after its China launch, which has been confirmed to take place after the Chinese New Year.
According to previous reports, the realme Race will come with Snapdragon 888 SoC, 12GB RAM, 256GB internal storage, 64MP primary camera, and realme UI 2.0 based on Android 11. These specs suggest this handset to be a successor to last year’s realme X50 Prolaunched as India’s as well as the brand’s first 5G smartphone.
Additionally, last month, a well-known tipster revealed that a Pro model will accompany the upcoming realme Race smartphone. However, the so-called realme Race Pro’s model number is still unknown though its specs have been tipped.
Also, this device is yet to be certified by TENAA, let alone BIS. Hence, currently, we can only say that India has a chance of getting the standard Race model and not the Pro. But the possibility could change in the coming days.
That said, the official branding of realme Race is also a mystery. It should probably retail as a realme X series phone or something new as realme is reported to offer new devices as a replacement to the OPPO ACE series.
