Rumor | Realme 11 Pro Plus with 'new' MediaTek Dimensity SoC surfaces on Geekbench ahead of imminent launch
The Realme 11 Pro Plus (or Pro+) is already touted as the first mid-range smartphone that will combine Xiaomi 13 Ultra looks and Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra-esque camera performance. Its new alleged specs leak puts the emphasis on "mid-range", though, hinting at the inclusion of the latest affordable-grade mobile processor from MediaTek. Then again, it may have a healthy amount of RAM and a more or less up-to-date OS on its debut.
Realme now openly aspires to draw comparisons between its next new smartphone and the Xiaomi 13 Ultra, although the round 11 Pro+ camera hump will only come somewhat close having to a Leica-tuned 1-inch sensor with a 200MP main shooter instead. Nevertheless, the device is destined for sub-flagship territory - according to its latest leak, at least.
The 10 Pro+ successor's supposed model number (RMX3740) has turned up on Geekbench, thereby possibly revealing its main specs ahead of its May 2023 launch. However, rather than a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 or even a Dimensity 9200, its chipset is depicted as a distinctly mid-tier MediaTek processor.
In fact, the "ARM MT6877V/TTZA" SoC has the same specs as the Dimensity 1080 - although it is said to be the 7050 instead, a new release of the same 6 nanometer (nm) profile pitched at next-gen 5G smartphones. Accordingly, prospective Realme 11 Pro+ buyers might expect it to run at 2.6GHz at the most with Mali-G68 graphics and Wi-Fi 6 support.
On the other hand, the upcoming device's display could easily be FHD+/120Hz, and use (possibly LPDDR5) RAM of 12GB (or more) in size to run Android 13.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
