The upcoming Realme 3 smartphone will be launching in both Helio P60 and Helio P70 variants. This was confirmed by Realme following the results of AIDA64 results that have leaked online. While the P70 version will launch in India, the P60 variant is destined for a global rollout. The Realme 3 is expected to sport a diamond-cut finish on the back and will target the tightly contested upper mid-range segment.

News about the upcoming Realme 3 has been doing the rounds for quite some time now and the latest we are hearing is that there will be two variants of the device — one with the MediaTek Helio P70 and the other with the Helio P60. Android Authority accessed AIDA64 results for models RMX1825 (Helio P70) and RMX1821 (Helio P60) and got confirmation from Realme that it is indeed the case and that both models are Realme 3 variants.

News about Realme using the Helio P70 isn't exactly new. Last November, Realme CEO Madhav Sheth announced that Realme will be the first to implement the new MediaTek SoC and also said that the company has plans for a global rollout. Currently, the OPPO sub-brand is exclusive to the Indian market. The RMX1821 powered by the Helio P60 seems to be global version while the Helio P70 version could launch first in India.

The MediaTek Helio P70 goes head-to-head against the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 and is expected to offer perceivable benefits across all areas. The Helio P70 is a 12 nm SoC with four ARM Cortex-A73 cores clocked at 2.3 GHz and four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 2.0 GHz. It also has a 700 MHz Mali-G72 MP3 GPU and a multi-core APU clocked at 525 MHz for AI tasks. Like the Helio P70, the Helio P60 is also a 12 nm part but is clocked lower at 2.0 GHz.

Performance differences aside, pricing could be a major factor in Realme choosing to go with MediaTek instead of Qualcomm. Further details about the Realme 3 are not fully clear at this point although, the company did tease a diamond-cut design at the back along with a vertical camera alignment and a fingerprint sensor.

We know that Realme also has plans of launching a new phone with a 48 MP camera later this year. Although the company hasn't confirmed it, the Realme 3 should be implementing something lesser than a 24 MP + 16 MP setup taking into account the Helio P70's imaging capabilities.

The Realme 3 is expected to launch sometime in March this year. We'll keep you updated on the developments so watch this space.
