Indian YouTuber, Sahil Karoul, has revealed the chipset that will be powering the Realme Pad. Earlier today, he tweeted that the Realme Pad will have a MediaTek Helio processor but didn’t reveal which chipset it is. He has now let the cat out of the bag and disclosed that the processor inside the tablet is the Helio G80 processor.
The Helio G80 which launched last year is a mid-range one that can’t measure up to the more powerful processors inside competitor tablets such as the Mi Pad 5 series which is available in Snapdragon 860 and Snapdragon 870 processors. However, with a mid-range chipset, the Realme Pad should be significantly cheaper than those from competitors.
Other details of the Realme Pad already revealed include having a 10.4-inch AMOLED screen, quad speakers, 8MP cameras on each side, and support for a stylus that can be stored inside the tablet. It has also been reported that it will have a 7100mAh battery capacity.
A leak from the same source says the Realme Pad will be launched on September 9.
