Alleged Realme X7 series to arrive on Tuesday and we expect two phones – a vanilla Realme X7 and a mightier Realme X7 Pro. Today reports from China claim there is going to be a third version, dubbed Realme X7 Pro Player that will have a Snapdragon 860 chipset, as opposed to the Dimensity 1000+ in the regular Pro.
Yes, the image does say Qualcomm Snapdragon 860 – it is an unofficial chipset that will likely be unveiled alongside the device. It appears the new platform will be a middle ground between Snapdragon 855 and Snapdragon 865.
This isn’t the first time Realme has launched a Player Version of its phones, although it would be a first to have a new chip. The X50 Pro 5G flagship, introduced in February, had an updated version for gamers with improved cooling and extra layers for better heat dissipation – it was simply called X50 Pro Player and never escaped China.
