Apple has unveiled its latest A14 chipset that powers the newly launched iPad Air. The same 5nm chipset will power the upcoming 5G-enabled iPhone 12 models that are slated to hit the market in the coming weeks.
Shortly thereafter, Redmi teased that the company would soon launch its flagship smartphone with a 5 nm chipset. Now Realme Executive has also tested a new flagship smartphone with the Snapdragon 875 chipset.
Xu Qi, President of Global Marketing and Vice President at Realme, has posted a teaser poster about Weibo hitting a new flagship smartphone from the company with a flagship 5nm chipset.
Given that most Android flagship smartphones run on a Qualcomm chipset, it can be assumed that the phones teased by Redmi and Realme will include the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 SoC.
Development comes at a time when OPPO is reported to have phased out its Ace range of smartphones and will replace them with a new range under the Realme brand with flagship specifications.

If Qualcomm adheres to its usual schedule, the flagship Snapdragon 875 chipset could be unveiled later this year, and we will start delivering the same level of performance to smartphones in the first quarter of 2021.
According to the reports, the Snapdragon 875 SoC could come with a Cortex-X1 Super Core and Cortex-A78 Core. The X1 Core is 30 percent more energy efficient than the A77 Core and 23 percent more than the A78 Core.
In addition to Qualcomm, Samsung and Huawei are also working on their next-generation flagship chipset, which is based on the 5 nm process. Huawei’s Kirwe 9000 will power the Mate 40 series devices and is expected to hit the market in the coming weeks.
