The “Master Edition” phones from Realme are known for their unique back designs & those designs are created by Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa. He takes inspiration for his designs from objects of daily life, for example, in the case of the Realme X Master Edition, he took inspiration from Onion & Garlic, hence we got the Onion & Garlic color options of that phone. Today, Realme GT Master Edition went official in the Chinese market, which, as the name shows, comes under the Realme GT series.

This time, Naoto Fukasawa took inspiration from a Travel Suitcase, hence we see a similar pattern on the back of Realme GT Master Edition.

Realme says that the back panel features the “Vegan Leather” material, which helps in getting a firm grip on the device when you hold it. There are three cameras on the rear that are placed in a rectangular camera module. Apart from this Gray color option which is inspired by the Travel Suitcase design, there are also two more color options named Snow & Dawn. Those don’t have the same rear design.

There is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G 5G chipset under the hood, which is paired with 8GB of RAM & 128GB or 256GB storage. There is a 4,300mAh battery, and the phone supports 65W fast charging as well.

The rear camera is capable of 4K video recording at up to 30fps. On the front, there is a 32 Megapixel selfie camera.
