Mystery Realme tablet with UNISOC SoC shows up on Geekbench
Realme's first-ever tablet, the Realme Pad, is undoubtedly one of the better low-cost options out there, and our in-depth review praised it for its construction and connectivity. Now, Realme appears to be working on a cheaper version of the Realme Pad, according to Twitter leaker @StuffListings (via 91mobiles). Given Realme's penchant to add suffixes to its SKUs, we can expect this to be called the Realme Pad Lite.
The mystery Realme tablet showed up on the EEC certification website and Geekbench. The former reveals its model number RMP2105, while the latter sheds light on its innards. Its single and multi-core scores on Geekbench are 363 and 1,330, respectively. The Geekbench listing doesn't specify the exact make and model of the UNISOC SoC that powers the tablet. However, it seems to be running six CPU cores at 1.8GHz and two at 1.95GHz, indicating that it could either be the UNISOC Tiger T616 or T610. Both are entry-level chipsets that perform on par with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 4xx series.
We don't know a whole lot more about the mystery Realme tablet (Realme Pad Lite), other than the fact that it packs 3GB of RAM, presumably with 32/64GB of storage. It appears to be running Android 11 in this test, although the retail version could very well upgrade that to Android 12. We're probably looking at a smaller (8-inch-ish) screen and a 5-6,000mAh battery along with downgraded cameras. The Realme Pad Lite could be Realme's foray into the ultra-low-cost tablet segment (sub-US$200), where it will take on the likes of the Lenovo Tab M8 and Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite.
