Price starts at just ¥1,799 or around $275!
At the beginning of this month, we got Realme GT, a flagship from the brand powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SOC. Today, the company launched a cheaper, toned-down version of that phone named the Realme GT Neo. The difference? Well, there is a Dimensity 1200 SOC under the hood instead of a Snapdragon chipset, and the phone supports 50W fast charging instead of 65W.
Design-wise, it is a quite unique-looking phone, thanks to that shiny strip on the rear that has the Realme branding, and it goes all the way from the top to the bottom of the rear panel. There is a rectangular camera module having a triple camera setup in it, and on the front, Realme GT Neo has a flat-screen with a single hole-punch cutout on the top left corner. The USB Type-C port is there on the bottom, and the phone has a headphone jack as well.
On the front, there is the same 6.43-inch Super AMOLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate, FHD+ resolution, and up to 360Hz touch-sampling-rate. Under the hood, the phone has Dimensity 1200 SOC from MediaTek, and it is a 6nm chipset featuring a CPU clocked at up to 3.0GHz. Storage options include 6GB/8GB/12GB RAM and 128GB/256GB UFS 3.1 storage. Realme GT Neo has a 4,500mAh battery and supports 50W fast charging. In the box, however, Realme ships a 65W adapter.
The triple camera setup on the rear includes a primary 64 Megapixel Sony IMX682 sensor, an 8 Megapixel ultrawide unit, and a 2 Megapixel macro camera. There is a 16 Megapixel selfie shooter. Finally, Realme UI 2.0 based on Android 11 runs out of the box.
Speaking of the pricing and availability, Realme GT Neo comes in three storage options, and here is the pricing for China –
6GB + 128GB – ¥1799 ($275)
8GB + 128GB – ¥1999 ($305)
12GB + 256GB – ¥2399 ($366)
The phone will be up for grabs in China on the 7th of April.
