The company revealed this information via a tweet on its official U.K. handle. If this device will be one of the first to use this chip, it should arrive in February latest. As of now, we do not know much about this smartphone. Nevertheless, a piece of recent exclusive information on GSMArena reveals some details of this device.
According to the report, this device comes with model number RMX2202. In addition to the Snapdragon 888, Realme Race will come with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.

On the software end, the report shows that the Realme Race will come with Realme UI 2.0 on top of Android 11 out-of-the-box.
The specs sheet also comes with an image that shows us what the rear of this device will look like. In the camera department, we can clearly see a quad rear camera setup in a round camera housing. On the right of the circular camera housing is an LED Flash. Furthermore, this device seems to use a curved glass back design which is preponderant in the industry presently.
