Basically, Snapdragon comes with an overclocked CPU and GPU as compared to the standard Snapdragon 855. The tri-cluster design of the eight-core Kryo 485 CPU on the Snapdragon 855 Plus sees your primary core running at a clock speed up to 2.96GHz instead of the 2.84GHz clock speed of a standard Snapdragon 855 chipset. The Adreno 640 GPU, on the other hand, have also been fine-tuned to offer a 15% increase in gaming performance.

Speaking of the improvements in Snapdragon 855 chipset, Kedar Kondap, VP of Product Management, Qualcomm Technologies Inc said that, “Snapdragon 855 Plus will raise the bar for elite gamers with the increase in CPU and GPU performance and elevate experiences for 5G, gaming, AI and XR, which is something our OEM customers look to us to deliver.”

While there is no confirmation, there is a possibility that Realme could put the Snapdragon 855 Plus chipset in the 64MP quad-camera phone. Also, since the new chipset is a gaming-centric processor, the new Realme device could be a gaming smartphone as well.
