The Realme GT Neo arrives as the cheaper alternative to the initial GT model.
With the Realme GT Neo, you’re getting a MediaTek Dimensity 1200 processor instead of the top-of-the-line Snapdragon 888 of the first Realme GT. The charging support was also downgraded to 50W from 65W, but a 65W SuperDart charger is still in the box.
The rest of the specs are identical. We have a smooth and colorful 6.43-inch Super AMOLED screen on the front, with a 120Hz refresh rate for gaming and 360Hz touch sampling for improved responsiveness.
There’s a punch-hole on the top for the 16-megapixel selfie snapper. Around the back, we have a 64-megapixel main shooter, 8-megapixel ultra-wide, and 2-megapixel macro.
The design on the back is similar to the Realme 7 series and other newer Realme devices. But this time, it has a monochrome sticker that shines in rainbow colors as it reacts to light.
As it was made for hardcore gamers, the chipset is sandwiched with dual graphite plates and liquid cooling, so it doesn’t run hot under intense workloads.
The Realme GT Neo has a starting price of CNY1,799 (around Php13,300) for the 6GB/128GB, CNY1,899 (around Php14,000) for the 8GB/128GB, and CNY2,399 (around Php17,700) for the 12GB/256GB. It will be available in China this April 7 with no clear signs that it will arrive in other markets like the Philippines.
