A new Realme smartphone with the model number RMX3700 has appeared on the Geekbench benchmark service. It is said to be the Realme GT Neo5 SE, which appeared in the Geekbench test with a chipset that has not yet made its rounds in any other smartphone.
Geekbench states a Qualcomm SM8450 processor, codenamed taro, which is usually the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 / 8+ Gen 1 chipset. However, the CPU of the Realme GT Neo5 SE ran slower than usual, indicating another version of the platform. The most plausible answer is an underclocked processor of the same name with a 2.92 GHz Cortex-X2 main core instead of 3.00 GHz / 3.19 GHz. The three Cortex-A710 cores ran at 2.5 GHz and four other A510 cores at 1.8 GHz.
It’s not the first time that Qualcomm has shipped a chipset that doesn’t run at its maximum clock speed. The Oppo Reno9 Pro+, for example, also works with a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 with a slightly slower main core. However, the remaining specifications correspond to the standard. In the Honor 80 Pro with an SD 8+ Gen 1, in addition to the Cortex-X2 core with 3.0 GHz, the three Cortex-A710 Gold cores are also slowed down to 2.5 GHz instead of 2.75 GHz.
The Realme GT Neo5 SE is expected to inherit the 6.74-inch AMOLED display with a 144Hz refresh rate from the GT Neo5 (sold abroad as the Realme GT3). ColorOS 13 based on Android 13 and 8 GB of RAM should also be on board. More leaks and the official confirmation of the SE version should follow soon.
