Realme is ready to show more than a teaser image for its 2021 flagship phones. The company has offered early specs for both the Realme Race Pro (shown above) and Realme X9 Pro, and both promise cutting-edge tech.
The Realme Race Pro will notably center around a 6.8-inch, 1440p OLED screen with a 160Hz refresh rate. Speedy displays like this are still very rare â€” even Asus hid the ROG Phone 3â€™s 160Hz mode. You can expect top-tier performance in other areas as well, including a Snapdragon 888 chip, up to 12GB of low-power DDR5 memory, 125W fast wired charging, and a 5,000mAh battery. Youâ€™ll have between 128GB and 512GB of storage.
While the Realme X9 Pro wonâ€™t be as powerful, it should still break new ground as one of the first phones using MediaTekâ€™s flagship-class Dimensity 1200 chip.Â You can also expect a 6.4-inch, 1080p OLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, up to 256GB of storage, a 4,500mAh battery and 65W charging.

Curiously, the lower-end phone will win out in terms of pure camera resolution. The Realme Race Pro will carry a 64MP main rear sensor in addition to two 13MP secondary cameras, while the X9 Pro will swap the main camera for a 108MP shooter. Of course, image quality is another story â€” we wonâ€™t be surprised if the Race Pro ultimately takes better photos.
Both phones will have a release date sometime in the first quarter of 2021 and will run the Android 11-based Realme UI 2.0. The company hasnâ€™t revealed price points for either new model.
It wonâ€™t be surprising if other 2021 Android phones match or beat what Realme is offering with the Race Pro and X9 Pro. Itâ€™s safe to say theyâ€™re powerful, though, and they along with the Galaxy S21Â and Mi 11 will set the tone for what you can expect throughout the year.
