It is powered by the Snapdragon 888 processor called Realme Koi. The recent advancement by Realme comes a day after the company’s president for China demonstrated the next flagship, codenamed Realme Race which will be a part of a new series. This development had instantly confirmed the device would not be called Realme X60 Pro but will be Realme Koi.

It is noticeable that the flagship is coming next year and some rumours have pointed out that Realme Koi can come in February. Its launch can be at the same time as the Oppo Find X3 series launch. But nothing is sure.
Some key specifications of the Realme Koi are it comes with a square-shaped camera island with at least three sensors, one of them having a 64MP lens. There is a branding that reads Power Design and refers to the new pattern that uses three colours to form a flask-like shape on the back.

It could come with the Snapdragon 888 chipset, 12GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, and Android 11-based Realme UI 2.0. We will have to wait for Realme to disclose more information about its forthcoming flagship device.
