- Not much is known about the Realme GT Neo 5 SE launch date
- The new smartphone could be a sub-flagship grade device
- A new rumour now suggests that it could feature a new Qualcomm chip
There have been plenty of rumours around about the Realme GT Neo 5 SE, the purportedly more affordable version of the GT Neo 5 that has already been launched. Of late, the smartphone seemingly showed up on the Geekbench benchmark browser, bearing codename RMX3700, showcasing a host of specifications and clues in terms of what the device could bring to the table. Interestingly, this now includes a new version of a previous Snapdragon chip that has not been released yet.
Realme GT Neo 5 SE: what chip could it use?
According to the Geekbench listing, as well as a post by tipster Mukul Sharma on Twitter, the Realme GT Neo 5 SE is expected to feature a chipset that has not yet been announced by Qualcomm. This purported chip could be called Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 ‘Youth Edition’, bearing a key difference in comparison to the original chip. According to Sharma, the Youth Edition chip will likely feature eight cores, with four background cores clocked at 1.8GHz, three efficiency cores clocked at 2.5GHz, and one performance core clocked at 2.9GHz. In comparison, the Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 features a performance core clocked at 3.2GHz.
Other key specifications of the smartphone that have been tipped so far include a 6.74-inch OLED display with 1.5K resolution and 144Hz refresh rate, at least 8GB RAM — also backed up on the Geekbench listing, a triple rear camera setup headlined by a 64MP Omnivision sensor, and a 5,500mAh battery with 100W fast charging in tow. It’s not clear if there are any word of a new version of the Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 chip, so it would be wise to not take the rumour for word.
Going forward, it remains to be seen how much of the purported specifications match with the actual ones, when the device is officially unveiled.
