The new Qualcomm chipset is believed to be the successor to the Snapdragon 865 processor. Now even before the event can kickstart, Realme has teased a new smartphone that would be powered by the new mobile chipset.

This would up the competition against Apple, which rolled out the 5nm A14 Bionic chipset. Presently, several OEMs use the Snapdragon 800 series for their flagship smartphones, including the OnePlus 8T.
The premium Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset will be getting a successor, believed to be called Snapdragon 875. However, several industry insiders have hinted that it won’t be called SD 875. instead, teasers have pointed out that the upcoming chipset will be called Snapdragon 888. This will be confirmed shortly at the Qualcomm event.
The upcoming Qualcomm event, which has also gone virtual this year, will have several speakers. The list includes executives from Sony, OnePlus, and Xiaomi. Sony and OnePlus will reportedly talk about mobile gaming. A Xiaomi executive is expected to give us a product update, which is believed to be the new Mi 11. And now, Realme seems to have joined the list of speakers.
