Qualcomm unveiled the Snapdragon 778G SoC for the next generation of mid-range 5G smartphones last week. Not long after its launch, Realme India’s head Madhav Sheth has confirmed that the company is one of the first to introduce a new Snapdragon 778G 5G SoC driven unit.
Realme recently hinted that it is working on a new device that will use the recently launched Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G. However, according to the most recent leaks, the company is working on another smartphone with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870. According to reports, the phones will be released on June 18.
The leaks came from Digital Chat Station, a well-known digital tipper who has a handle on the Chinese social media network Weibo.
Madhav previously announced in a tweet that the smartphone with the Snapdragon 778G chipset in development will be renamed “Quicksilver,” which is most definitely the same phone referred to in the tweet. They also reported that the launch was originally scheduled for May 25 but was pushed back to June 18.
Last week, Qualcomm revealed the Snapdragon 778G. This system-on-chip includes a Kryo 670 CPU, which is 40% faster than the Kryo 475 CPU used on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 768G. Aside from being 40% quicker, the Snapdragon 778G will also have a dedicated Adreno 642L GPU.
The SoC even includes the minimal power Hexagon 770 processor and the second generation Qualcomm Sensing Hub, which enhances AI functionality. The Qualcomm Spectra 570L triple image signal processor is included in the SoC for image processing.
The triple ISP can capture triple images with up to 22-megapixel resolution at the same time, as well as small and ultra-wide modes and 4K HDR10+ video capture.
Realme officially unveiled a launch event in India, but the company expects to launch the Realme X7 Max 5G and a new Realme Smart TV 4K there. The Realme X7 Max 5G will be a rebranded version of the Realme GT Neo, and it will be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC.
As a result, the wait for the first smartphone powered by the Snapdragon 778G will continue. Furthermore, the company has not yet reported any June 18 event in China, so we recommend taking this knowledge with a grain of salt.
