What the Realme 10 4G features

According to the Geekbench listing, the Realme 10 4G is seemingly running on a new generation MediaTek chip, the Helio G99. The latter is a 4G chipset that was launched in May this year, and notably takes on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 680 4G SoC. The chip is based on 6nm cores, and has two performance cores with the Cortex-A76, and six efficiency cores.

Notably, the Helio G99 is expected to be a better performer than the Snapdragon 680. According to Geekbench benchmark data, the Helio G99 outperforms the Snapdragon 680 by nearly 7 percent in multi-core performance, and should therefore be able to offer better performance than the latter. Devices such as Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 11 run on the Snapdragon 680, which suggests that the Realme 10 4G may theoretically be a better performer — although its real-world details remain to be seen.

Other key features that have been spotted include 8GB RAM, a 4,880mAh battery and Android 12 powering the smartphone’s software experience. The smartphone has already been spotted to have received multiple certifications including in Europe, Thailand and Indonesia, which suggests that the device’s launch is imminent.

If launched in the coming weeks, it would fall in line with Realme CEO Madhav Sheth’s statement earlier this year, in an interview with GSMArena, which had suggested that the Realme 10 series will be unveiled before end-2022 — thus suggesting a launch at around the festive season.
