Realme among the first to launch a smartphone with Snapdragon 720G: CEO

Realme CEO, Madhav Sheth, announced on Twitter that a Realme smartphone will be among the first to feature one of Qualcomm’s latest mobile processor, dubbed the Snapdragon 720G.

The senior executive took to the popular social media website to share this information through his official Twitter account. He stated that one of its upcoming smartphones will arrive with the Snapdragon 720G which is a mid range SoC (systems on chip) which was just revealed earlier today (20th January 2020) unveiled by Qualcomm. Madhav also shared an image in the post which showcases a smartphone with a dual selfie camera module on the front, which is likely to be in a punch hole format.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G is a mid range processor and arrives to fill the gap between the Snapdragon 600 series (Snapdragon 665) and the upper 700 (Snapdragon 765 series) and the flagship 800 series (Snapdragon 865). The processor will also arrive with other entry level chipsets like the Snapdragon 460 and 662 chipsets.

According to official listings, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 720G is a processor that will aim to deliver a superior gaming experience. The new chipset features Qualcomm Snapdragon Elite Gaming functionalities and is designed to provide HDR during gameplay alongside dynamic color range and contrast and improved audio output via Qualcomm aptX Adaptive technology.

Realme is a smartphone brand that has its target audience set in the youth demographic. It heavily advertises in a similar manner with its smartphone arriving with attractive colors and lucrative pricing. Thus, it is a great move considering mobile gaming has become an increasingly popular field in the smartphone industry. Previously, MediaTek unveiled the first gaming centric chipset, the Helio G90 series, so this could be Qualcomm’s version of the same.


Unfortunately, information regarding the upcoming Realme smartphone that will feature the gaming chipset is currently scarce. Madhav has only teased the upcoming smartphone and provided a small first look at its front panel. Finer details and specification are still at large, so stay tuned for information which is expected to arrive soon.
