Realme Pad is coming later this year, according to the company’s announcement earlier this year. The tablet, which will be the brand’s first, has so far emerged as a competition against the Apple iPad, thanks to the flat design and metallic finish that are very identical. But to be the competition in the true sense, not just the looks but the internals of the Realme Pad should also level with what iPad offers. A new leak shows that might not be the case. The Realme Pad has shown up on the Geekbench website with a MediaTek processor, throwing the rumours related to Qualcomm chipsets out the window.
According to the Geekbench listing, spotted by Bestopedia, Realme’s RMP2102 model, which is the Realme Pad, will feature the MediaTek MT6769V/CU octa-core chipset, including six 1.8GHz cores and two 2GHz cores. This MediaTek chipset is commonly called the Helio G80, which the company has used on a number of its low-end smartphones. The processor is good enough for the price bracket that most Realme phones come at, which makes me wonder whether or not the Realme Pad will be an entry-level tablet.
The Realme Pad listing shows there will be at least 4GB of RAM, which sounds decent only if this is the base variant we are looking at. There will be Android 11 software on the tablet, but it is not clear what the interface will be. Realme ships Realme UI on its smartphones while its smart televisions come with stock Android TV, so there is no harmony in terms of custom skin. The Realme Pad’s Geekbench score for single-core performance is 326 and for multi-core performance, it is 1144.
The Geekbench listing, however, does not talk about the rest of the specifications of the Realme Pad. But we have rumours from before to paint a picture of what the Realme Pad is going to be like. The Realme Pad may be 6.8mm thick and come with a 10.4-inch AMOLED display with a 60Hz refresh rate. On the front, the tablet may come with an 8-megapixel camera with fixed focus, while on the back, there may be another 8-megapixel camera but with an autofocus feature. Inside the Realme Pad, there may be a 7100mAh battery, which seems like a lot. The tablet may come with Wi-Fi and cellular connectivity support, in addition, to support for GPS. The Realme Pad may have quad speakers and support for stylus, among others.
The price of the Realme Pad is not certain at this point, but rumours say the tablet may come in grey and gold colours. Realme has not shown much of the Realme Pad till now, but it is expected to launch it later this year.
