Earlier on today, Oppo made an announcement about its new A55 5G smartphone which is powered b the Dimensity 700 Chipset out of the box. The new chipset was released back in November 2020 with the aims of powering affordable 5G smartphones and smartphone makers have taken the advantage even though more smartphones powered by this chipset with the 5G capability are still expected to be announced in later times.
Among the OEMs expected to release smartphones based on the D700 chipset is Realme as a new leak has it that the company is working on a new device which will be powered by the chipset and will most likely be the most affordable 5G-capable smartphone when it finally make its debut.
According to the report, the unnamed smartphone is expected to sport an LCD display witha teardrop notch while having a square-shaped camera module at its back and it’s battery’s capacity is expected to be in the region of 5000mAh something which Realme is known for.
The leaker named Digital Chat Station is a quite reputable source on East Asia-related tech stories especially in the smartphone industry so we can expect the best from such a source.
According to the source, the device’s price tag will be in the lower-tier mid-range and if we’re to compare the pricing with the current Realme V3, it costs only US$170 while the Realme Q2i costs US$154 which both are the cheapest 5G smartphones in the market.
Since we do not have an idea about the moniker of this mysterious D7-powered Realme smartphone with 5G network support might just fall under the Q-series and might be the cheapest 5G smartphone till date which could drop the pricing down to maybe U$150 or lower.
So since we’re suggesting that the mysterious overtly affordable Realme’s 5G smartphone might just be another Q-series device, it’s worth relating it with the current Q2i model whose technical specifications includes the following:
A 6.5-inch HD+ screen based on the IPS LCD technology and it runs on the Dimensity 720 chipset with 4GB of RAM while its internal storage is a whooping 128GB but there is no support for extending the storage space.
As for the software, it’s powered by the current or stable Android 10 OS with the Realme UI laced up top of it. The Realme Q2i supports 18W of charging and has a massive 5000mAh battery which can last you a whole day depending on how you use your smartphone.
The front facing camera is an 8MP sensor while there are three sensors at the back with the primary sensor being a 13MP paired up with a 2MP macro and another 2MP for depth sensing while it has its fingerprint scanner placed at the back of the device.
