Highlights

  • Realme Race may end up being called Realme GT in the market.
  • Realme has trademarked the new name in India ahead of the launch.
  • Realme Race is confirmed to come with a Snapdragon 888 chipset.

Realme Race flagship phone is due for launch soon. Race is the codename for this device that Realme confirmed last year but it has not said anything on what it is planning to name it for market release. A tipster has now claimed Race will be called Realme GT in India. And the reason why this information has come up is the new trademark that Realme has freshly registered. For now, it is unclear what GT could mean and even if there is a catchy two-word phrase Realme has reserved for this phone, GT seems out of place.

Contrary to the general consensus that the 2021 flagship of Realme will be called X60 Pro, Realme is said to be opting for a boring acronym, if we go by the tweet by tipster Mukul Sharma. But as X60 Pro, this phone will retain the legacy of the flagship phone series from Realme. The Realme GT trademark was registered on February 2 in India, meaning the launch could take place sooner than later. Realme has, however, not said if this trademark belongs to the Race flagship, or to a smartphone for that matter.

This trademark registration comes days after Realme got the Realme Race certified on the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) website. This directly means the flagship phone is ready for launch in India. Although a launch date is not available yet.

The Realme Race bears a model number RMX2022, as per the instances spotted on various certification websites. Realme has already confirmed the Race flagship will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset, bringing the best of Android world on the phone. The rest of the specifications are rumoured, though, such as the 125W fast charging on a 5000mAh battery, wireless charging, a Super AMOLED display with 3K resolution and 160Hz high refresh rate, and even the 64MP triple camera system on the back.

Separately, Realme recently launched the X7 Pro and X7 smartphones in India. Both smartphones come with support for 5G, facilitated by a MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ chipset on the former and the Dimensity 800U processor on the latter. Not just 5G, these processors bring good performance, better software stability, camera improvements, and image processing. The two phones also bring fast charging technology in the mid-range segment. Everything on these phones is good for the price they are asking except for one thing that I think should be a pressing concern, the 5G. If you are planning to buy these phones just for 5G, I would suggest you better wait for at least five-six months because the deployment of 5G would take that time.
