Chipset and Cooling System
The smartphone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC paired with up to 12GB of LPDDR5X RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.1 internal storage. For the unversed, the LPDDR5X is a new technology that succeeds the LPDDR5 RAM Type by offering better efficiency.
Realme has provided a dual vapor chamber liquid cooling system on the phone for dissipating heat. It also has a dual pressure-sensitive shoulder trigger for gamers.
The device flaunts a triple camera setup on the back with a 50MP Sony IMX766 main lens, a 50MP ultra-wide lens, and a 2MP microscope sensor with support for 40x magnification. The main camera supports Optical Image Stabilization.
