Realme Explorer Master Edition coming with Snapdragon 870, vanilla model passes by Geekbench
As evident by several leaks, Realme is planning to introduce a Master Edition of its GT 5G model on July 21. It seems however that there will be more than one Master Edition phone at launch with an “Explorer Master Edition” joining the vanilla variant. The news is now clarified by Steve Hemmerstoffer (@OnLeaks) who shared an image of the RMX3366 aka Explorer Master Edition.
Because there seems to be some confusion ahead of the #RealmeGTMasterEdition launch, the variant pictured below (RMX3366) will be marketed as the “Explorer Master Edition”, along with the “Master Edition” (RMX3361) I’ve leaked few days ago… You’re welcome…? pic.twitter.com/CxxbcouYSw
This Explorer model is also said to be powered by the Snapdragon 870 chipset instead of the Snapdragon 778 on the regular RMX3361 Master Edition. We can also observe a different camera cutout around the back.
In related news, the regular Master Edition appeared in a Geekbench listing revealing it is indeed powered by the Snapdragon 778 chipset alongside 8GB RAM. The phone managed a respectable 766-point single-core score and 2,599-points in the multi-core department. The listing also confirms the phone is running Android 11, presumably with Realme UI 2.0 on top.
