Rumor | Realme certifies its Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1-powered, 100W-charging late-2022 flagship smartphone with TENAA
Realme is an OEM linked to the strong possibility of a new flagship smartphone to supplant the existing GT2 Pro with one powered by Qualcomm's iterative Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 (or 8+ Gen 1) processor upgrade. Now, it is possible that the device in question has appeared in live images for the first time.
These photos are found in a new TENAA database entry for a Realme RMX3551. This model number has also reportedly appeared on the AnTuTu Benchmark's records. Its ability to exceed a score of 1,000,000 on this platform might be explained by the 3.2GHz spec found in its latest leak - which also happens to be the 8+ Gen 1's top clock.
This has led to predictions that this phone will debut as the GT2 Explorer Master Edition, with a second-gen bespoke finish designed by the OEM's artistic partner Naoto Fukasawa - an impression perhaps compounded by newly official color-choices much like those of the GT2.
TENAA also now indicates that its GT Neo 3-esque camera hump will house a 50+50+2MP camera array, a 6.7-inch FHD+ display and a "2,440mAh" battery, a spec which stands a good chance of being approximately doubled under Realme's typical dual-cell system.
On that note, the upcoming "Explorer Master Edition" is now said to launch with 100W UltraDart charging tech, which would be an upgrade on the 80W standard found in current flagships. On the other hand, Realme has yet to do anything to confirm this new line of speculation.
