Realme's 5 Pro has just been confirmed by Flipkart as an upcoming release in August 2019. A model number that may conform to this phone has surfaced on Geekbench. It shows that it is powered by the octa-core Snapdragon 710 SoC and has 8GB of RAM.

The Realme 5 Pro will be one of this brand's next quad-camera phones when it is launched later this month. This device will have a 48MP main shooter, and might also have other modes such as ultra-wide photography. Despite its official teasers, details on its internals are less populous. However, new Geekbench 4 listings may have changed that.

These leaks concern a device called the Realme RMX1971, a model number that is not a million miles away from that of the base Realme 5. They offer more insights into the putative 5 Pro's specs, including the fact that it appears to run on the same SoC as the Xiaomi Mi CC9.

This processor is the 8-core Snapdragon 710. Given that the Realme 5 also has a chipset in common with the Mi CC9e, it is increasingly likely that these 2 series are being set up to compete in roughly the same price-bands. However, there is a new twist to this apparent story: a comparison of the Mi CC9's own Geekbench scores with those of the RMX1971 show that the former comes off considerably better in these tests.

This may be particularly disappointing for Realme fans as the new phone actually has more RAM than the Mi CC9 variant involved in these results (8GB compared to 6 for the Xiaomi phone), whereas they run the same OS (Android 9.0). This may be explained by impaired optimization for a Realme custom UI still in development. In addition, there are far more results for the CC9 than the RMX1971 at this point.

In any case, the Realme 5 series will make its first appearance when it is released to Indian customers via Flipkart on August 20, 2019. Their price-tags on this launch will be interesting, as they may be what really determines their success against others in their respective market sectors.
