After multiple leaks and teasers, the day for Realme enthusiasts to know their first 2021 flagship has finally come!
The fastest-growing smartphone brand is starting its yearly journey in the flagship segment with style. Today, the brand unleashed the highly-expected Realme GT 5G.
The smartphone packs the latest almighty Snapdragon 888 and has a very interesting price tag that starts at $430. Other appealing points are a 3.5mm headphone jack, fast-charging, gorgeous display with high-refresh-rate.
The powerful smartphone, formerly known as Realme Race, packs a 6.43-inch Super AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution.
This panel has a 120Hz refresh rate and a 360Hz touch sampling rate with five different configurations. You can, for example, set a specific setting for playing games.
The display has a top-left aligned punch-hole that serves as a home for the selfie snapper. Under the hood, the handset packs the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC.
This is Qualcomm’s best offering at the moment, and it’s also one of the most powerful chipsets in the industry thanks to the Cortex-X1 + 3 Cortex-A78 big cores.
This chipset is combined with either 8GB or 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM that comes alongside 128GB or 256GB UFS 3.1 storage.
The phone has no microSD card slot, so the variant with more Internal Storage certainly will be the best choice, depending on your usage.
The Realme GT 5G has three camera sensors comprised of a rectangular island. It has a 64MP primary camera that gets aid from an 8MP ultrawide unit.
The third and final sensor is a less appealing 2MP macro unit. Unfortunately, those who have been waiting for a telephoto shooter will be disappointed.
This powerful camera combo is capable of 4K@60fps video recording, slow-mo videos at up to 720@480fps. The handset also has EIS support and lacks OIS.
Realme certainly had to cut some corners to make this handset so affordable. However, take in mind that the Realme GT 5G is coming as the “performance flagship”, so the camera clearly isn’t the focus.
The Realme GT 5G is available in three distinct colorways. Two glass-based finishes are coming as Galactic Silver and Deep Sea Blue.
The so-called Bumblebee Leather edition comes with Dawn Yellow’s marketing name. Worth noting that just the first two colors are available in the base 8GB/128GB storage variant.
This will set you back at the astonishing CNY2,799 ($430/€360) price stage. The high-tier variant, with 12GB RAM and 256GB storage, on the other hand, costs CNY 3,299 ($510/€420).
