Realme X7 Pro Player Edition Could Be the First Phone with Snapdragon 860 SoC


INTRO; The Realme X7 series will go official on September 1st next week. It was earlier said to incorporate the quality Realme X7 and therefore the X7 Pro. The Chinese giant will, however, take the wraps off a ‘Player Edition’ variant of the Realme X7 Pro. And if rumors are to be believed, then the Realme X7 Pro Player Edition is going to be the primary smartphone to be powered by the Snapdragon 860 chipset.

Yeah, you read that right. Not the flagship Snapdragon 865 but instead, a lite version of the Snapdragon 865 perhaps. Qualcomm is yet to announce the Snapdragon 860 SoC, which also brings 5G connectivity in tow, as per the teaser image attached below. The chipset’s performance will most likely sit somewhere between the Snapdragon 855 and 865.

There are no leaks surrounding the Snapdragon 860 chipset, apart from a touch chatter within the rumor mills. Thus, we don’t know the performance difference to expect from this chipset.

Apart from the Snapdragon 860-powered Player Edition, Realme X7 is rumored to be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 720 chipset. A Geekbench listing for the phone, with 8GB of RAM, was spotted recently. Not much else is understood about the vanilla X7 just yet.

The company, on the opposite hand, has been revealing tidbits of data for Realme X7 Pro on social media. We already know that the device will sport a 120Hz AMOLED panel with 1200nits of peak brightness and 4096 brightness adjustment levels. We also skills the devices will look, boasting an enormous ‘Dare to Leap’ append the rear panel (as shown within the header image above).

The device has also been spotted on the e-tailer website It revealed that X7 Pro will include a 64MP quad-camera module on the rear and a punch-hole selfie camera. Rumors further suggest that it’ll include an octa-core chipset clocked up to 2.6GHz (most likely Dimensity 1000+), including 8GB of RAM and 128GB built-in storage.

We expect Realme to tease more features of the X7 series within the days leading up to the launch, so stay tuned for more information.
