Late last month, Realme's CEO Madhav Seth had hinted us a new Realme phone, which is said to be featuring a 64MP primary rear camera.

Asus will be the first handset maker to use the chip, it said in a press release. For more information, visit Qualcomm's website, OnQ blog, Twitter and Facebook pages.

Overnight Qualcomm have announced their new Snapdragon 855 Plus mobile platform which is a very slight incremental upgrade over the Snapdragon 855 - as the name suggests.

Qualcomm has announced a new SoC tailored for smartphone performance enthusiasts. The manufacturer lays stress on the superior 5G gaming experience it calls "a truly Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ Elite Gaming experience".

The Serb then dominated the tie-break to complete a comeback and collect his 16th Grand Slam title. Marathon men's finals have been commonplace at Wimbledon as well.

Qualcomm designs the mobile processors used in most high-end Android smartphones. However AnandTech has produced a handy table to compare the specs directly against a plain vanilla Snapdragon 855. Most gaming smartphones released so far come with the same chip - therefore similar performance - as a standard flagship device.

How tangible or perceivable the performance boost will be in phones running the Snapdragon 855 Plus has yet to be seen.

"The primary change is the overclocked Kryo 485 CPU Prime core, now clocked at 2.96GHz". All Qualcomm will say is that it's 15 percent faster than the 640 in the Snapdragon 855. So, basically, from now on. The company's upcoming Republic of Gamers (ROG) II smartphone is slated to be the first device to run on the 855 Plus processor with more details to be shared in the coming weeks. After getting announced late past year, it found its way into actual consumer devices earlier this spring, first on the Galaxy S10, and then on pretty much every other high-end Android phone.
