Realme has officially announced its new Realme Race smartphone lineup. The smartphone will be one of their new flagship products. Earlier, Realme officially confirmed that Realme Race will be among the first smartphone to come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC.
According to a tweet by the official Realme UK account, the realme Race is confirmed to be one of the first flagships to be powered by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset. This means the phone should launch by Q1 2021.

However, a leak was brought forward by GSM Arena earlier. According to the leak, the phone will have the model number RMX2202. They were even able to procure a screenshot from the “About Phone” section. The screenshot shares some important specifications for the device. Firstly, the device will run Android 11 with realme UI 2.0 on top. Secondly, the smartphone is coupled with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. Although, we feel that this won’t be the only variants available. Third and most important, it will come with the Snapdragon 888 chipset.
The device looks awfully similar to the Oppo Ace2 smartphone. Which isn’t surprising, since Oppo handed over the Oppo Ace lineup to Realme. Thus Realme+Ace=Race. Jokes aside, the Realme Race looks similar to the Realme patent that surfaced on CNIPA about a week. We already claimed that the device will be among Realme’s upcoming flagship. It will also be the first time that Realme will use a circular module for its rear cameras.
According to the leaked image, the device houses the circular camera module with Quad camera setup accompanied by an LED flash.
However, according to the Realme patent, there could be the power button on the right-hand side. Whereas the volume rockers will be present on the left-hand side.
In addition, the Type-C port, a single speaker, and the Dual SIM port can be located at the bottom of the smartphone. Whereas, a nice cancelling microphone can be located at the top of the device.
The company is likely to launch the Realme Race in the UK and then to some European countries. This isn’t a guess as the tweet was posted via Realme UK handle. However, the global launch shouldn’t be far away once it makes its way to the UK.
