Realme U1: Here’s what we know so far!

Realme, a former sub-brand of Oppo Electronics Corporation, has already gained success in some markets globally. Now seven months after its first smartphone, Realme again is up for a new unveiling. Earlier this week, a retail box and AnTuTu benchmark score of the Realme U1 has been spotted in the wild.


The benchmark scores show the Realme U1 up against the Honor 8X and Redmi Note 6. The Realme U1 will be the first to use Mediatek’s newest Helio P70 chipset. The MediaTek Helio P70 claims to offer 13 percent performance improvements compared to the Helio P60. Thanks to an improved Arm Mali-G72 MP3 GPU. The new enhanced dedicated AI engine will also be able to give the Helio P70 a lift for up to 30 percent boost in AI processing than the previous generation.



The Honor 8X and Redmi Note 6 comes with the Kirin 710, and the Snapdragon 636 SoC respectively. While results against the Honor 8X seems marginal, the Helio P70 outperforms the Snapdragon 636 on the Redmi Note 6. Scoring only 115611 against the Realme U1’s 145021.

This such a promising result for a MediaTek chip. For a long-time, Snapdragon has always been the go-to for the smartphone manufacturers in affordable market’s top-of-the-line smartphones. And Mediatek’s effort to improve its offerings means cheaper but capable devices in the future to come. That’s Realme leading the way. Realme devices mostly rely on MediaTek SoCs, hence the affordable handsets.

Above all, it seems like the U-series will be selfie-centric devices (pretty much like Oppo). And whilst no major specification is revealed, the Realme has been touting the impressive low-light selfies on the U1. Sources claim that it will be around 25-megapixels with a wide-angle optics. The rear will also feature a dual-camera configuration. Allowing the ever popular bokeh effect.

Revealing will happen on the 28th of November, 12:30. Visit Amazon India for more details.
