Realme is set to launch its Realme 12 Pro series of smartphones in various markets this month. Recently, the key specifications for the Realme 12 Pro and 12 Pro+ were revealed through the TENAA certification platform database. While the listings provided important information, it is important to note that the chipsets' names are usually not disclosed in TENAA certifications. Previously, the Realme 11 Pro and 11 Pro+ were powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 7050 chipset. However, the latest development suggests that the Realme 12 Pro series will be equipped with Qualcomm's Snapdragon chipsets.
According to tipster Abhishek Yadav, the Realme 12 Pro will feature the Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 chipset. This particular chip is also present in other smartphones like the Vivo Y100i Power, the iQOO Z8x, and the Honor X50, which are available in the Chinese market. If this information is accurate, the Realme 12 Pro could become the first smartphone in India to be powered by the Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 chip.
On the other hand, the Realme 12 Pro+ is expected to come with the Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 chipset. Currently, the Redmi Note 13 Pro is the only other phone that features this chip.
