The Snapdragon 460 is a new Qualcomm processor that has hit the headlines thanks to its putative role in OnePlus' first-ever entry-level smartphone. It seems the OEM Realme is also preparing a device based on the cost-effective chipset. According to a Geekbench leak, it has a surprisingly generous amount of RAM and runs Android 10.

The Snapdragon 460 has been of marked interest for a budget Qualcomm mobile processor as of late. This is because it is thought to power OnePlus' debut in the lower end of the smartphone market (the "Clover"). Now, it seems Realme is preparing a competitor to this device with the same SoC.

This indication comes in the form of a new Geekbench 5 listing for a "realme RMX2101". It is described as running Android 10 using a platform called bengal. This code-name has been confirmed as referring to the 460 as of the launch of the first phone to be based on it, the OPPO A53 (2020).

The processor's apparent latest manifestation is currently thought to be re-named the Realme C17 on its launch. Should this be the case, it may have at least 1 SKU with 6GB of RAM - which would make it the first of its series with this spec. 

As to its price, the OnePlus Clover is currently believed to hang around the US$200 mark on its launch, whereas the 4GB A53 went for less than this on its launch. A Realme C17 based on this leak may also be fortunate in its battery stats: the new C15 has a 6000mAh battery (also reportedly destined for the Clover). Then again, the OEM has yet to confirm or deny these rumors.

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.
