After teasing it for a while, the Realme GT 5G has been finally made official, and it’s currently the most powerful smartphone that the brand offers.

The Realme GT is powered by today’s top mobile chipset, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor. You can get it with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.


It also has a fast and vibrant screen with its 6.43-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED panel, with a 120Hz refresh rate and 360Hz touch sampling.

The battery is pretty beefy, too. We have a 4,500mAh capacity that charges via a 65W fast charger. On the downside, it lacks wireless charging and stereo speakers. But on the upside, unlike most flagship phones, it comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack.


We then have the triple camera setup on the back, which appears to be pretty basic. There’s a 64-megapixel main shooter, 8-megapixel ultra-wide, and 2-megapixel macro lens. No optical image stabilization (OIS) or 8K video recording.

On the front, we have a punch-hole for the 16-megapixel main camera. It then runs on the Android 11-based Realme UI 2.0 with the company’s HyperBoost 4.0 technology for an extra performance boost.


The Realme GT will be initially available in China with a starting price of CNY2,799 (around Php21,000) for the 8GB/12GB model and CNY3,299 (around Php24,700) for the 12GB/256GB. No word yet if it will arrive in the Philippines and other markets.
