Realme GT Neo 5 SE appears with an underclocked Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1

Yordan, 13 March 2023

A new Realme is on its way with model number RMX3700. The smartphone, rumored to arrive as Realme GT Neo 5 SE, appeared on Geekbench and revealed a CPU we haven't seen before.

The chipset of the phone will be a Qualcomm SM8450 (codename taro), which is the Snapdragon 8/8+ Gen 1, but the CPU is underclocked, suggesting yet another version of the platform. The most plausible answer is an underclocked chip with the same name with the prime Cortex-X2 processor core at 2.92GHz, while the trio of Cortex-A710 cores is clocked at 2.5GHz.

This won’t be the first time Qualcomm provides a chipset that is not clocked to the max. The Oppo Reno9 Pro+, for example, is running on Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 with a slightly slower prime core, although the rest is aligned with the default specs.

The upcoming phone is expected to borrow the 6.74” AMOLED panel with 144Hz refresh rate from its sibling, the GT Neo 5 (sold overseas as Realme GT3). Other specs we can expect are ColorOS 13, based on Android 13 and 8GB RAM. More should follow soon once Realme acknowledges the existence of this SE version.

This definitely helps a lot for prolonged use, particularly during gaming. You don't want to stress the cooling system too much.

7+ Gen 1 is going to be an underclock 8+ Gen 1. So this might just be 7+ Gen 1.
