Realme and Xiaomi were among the first manufacturers to announce flagship smartphones based on the latest Snapdragon 888 chipset. While Xiaomi launched the Mi 11 back in December, Realme is gearing up to launch a new flagship lineup, codenamed Realme Race. It looks like the Realme Race series could finally launch by the end of February.
Realme Race Launch Details
The tip comes from Song Qi Arc, Realme’s Marketing Communications Director. The tentative launch date was revealed via a Weibo post where the director said the Realme Race would debut after the Chinese Spring Festival or the Chinese New Year. To note, this Chinese festival falls on February 12, a week from today. This means we could see the Realme Race series by the end of this month.

So far, the rumored Realme Race has appeared on a couple of listings, revealing a few details. For one, we know the upcoming Realme Race smartphones would be powered by the latest Snapdragon 888 chipset with up to 12GB RAM and 256GB default storage.
