Yesterday, Apple took off covers from the iPad Air (2020). One of the most striking features of the tablet is that it is fueled by the all-new Apple A14 Bionic. The said SoC is the world’s first 5nm chipset. Soon after its launch, Redmi GM Lu Weibing hinted at the arrival of a new smartphone powered by the alleged Snapdragon 875 5nm chipset. Realme too is planning to launch a Snapdragon 875 chipset powered smartphone.
Realme VP who goes by the Xu Qi Chase Weibo account hinted about the new series of smartphones that will be driven by the 5nm flagship chipset. In China, Realme is already selling Q-series, V-series, and X-series smartphones. The poster released by Xu QI shows that the 5nm flagship chipset will be seen on a new series.
Parent brand OPPO recently announced that it is making some changes in its product line. The company has recently removed the Ace series from its lineup. It is speculated that this series could be made available under Realme branding. At present, there is no word on the name of Realme device that will feature the 5nm chipset.
Qualcomm is speculated to announce the Snapdragon 875 mobile platform by the end of this year. Phones with SD875 onboard will break cover in the beginning months of 2021. Rumors have it that Xiaomi and Vivo will be the first brands in China to launch SD875 powered smartphones.
While Xiaomi is expected to launch the Xiaomi Mi 20 (or Mi 11) in February, there is no word on the name of the Vivo’s first flagship for 2021. The Redmi K40 Pro is expected to debut in March. Since Realme unveiled the Snapdragon 865 powered Realme X50 Pro 5G in February this year, it is likely that Realme’s SD875 phone may go official in February 2021. Hopefully, it will arrive with its very own 125W fast charging technology.
