Realme is gearing up to launch two new smartphones in the first quarter of this year. Realme X9 Pro is said to be among the first smartphones to be powered by the newly-launched Dimensity 1200 SoC, while Realme Race Pro will pack Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 888 processor. Tipster Ice Universe posted an image (via GizmoChina) on Chinese social networking site Weibo with key specifications of Realme X9 Pro and Realme Race Pro.
Separately, GSMArena reported that the Realme smartphone that the company’s India and Europe CEO Madhav Sheth teased on Twitter is Realme X9. The smartphone is expected to launch in India after Sheth put out an image showing off the slim profile of Realme X9 on Twitter. The smartphone seems to skip a 3.5mm headset jack as only a USB Type-C port and loudpeaker grille are visible in the image. Realme X9 could come with ‘Dare to Leap’ tagline printed on the back cover.
