Realme has announced that it will be among the first brands to launch a flagship phone with the all-new MediaTek Dimensity 1200 chipset. The company’s India CEO Madhav Sheth tweeted the same along with the hashtag #XisTheFuture, which suggests the Dimensity 1200-powered phone will be the upcoming Realme X-series device. However, other details of the handset are kept under wraps, for now. Separately, GSMArena citing internal sources claims the upcoming device will be called Realme X9 and not the Realme X7 as previously thought. The rear portion of the phone is visible, where we can see the Realme logo, ‘Dare To Leap’ tagline, and a gradient colour finish. The USB Type-C port, speaker grille, and microphone are at the bottom. Interestingly, the 3.5mm audio jack is missing.
