Realme unveiled its new flagship, the new Realme GT, at the company’s first global launch event. The first GT series smartphone is powered by Qualcomm’s flagship chipset Snapdragon 888.

The Realme GT 8GB+128GB variant will be on sale for 369 euros (roughly around ₹32,800).
The new Realme GT design is inspired from the concept of grand tourers (GT) sports cars. The GT smartphone series offers a glass-covered design with a 3D light-reflecting pattern on the back plus a ‘vegan-leather’.

The Realme GT is equipped with a 4,500 mAh battery which supports 65W SuperDart charging support, allowing the smartphone to be fully charged in 35 minutes.
The Realme GT features a 6.43-inch 120Hz Samsung Super AMOLED display. The company claims that the phone gets front and rear dual light sensors, which provide 4,096 auto-brightness levels.
The smartphone comes with Dolby Atmos Dual Stereo speakers, Hi-Res Audio, and a 3.5mm audio jack with low latency and low interference charge. The Realme GT comes with triple lens camera setup with the primary camera holding a 64MP lens. The Realme GT will also support Android 12 Beta 1.
