Realme has officially unveiled the Realme GT Neo smartphone in China. It is exactly the same phone as the Realme GT 5G released earlier this month but with a difference in processor. It was announced with a Qualcomm chipset but with the Neo variant, the team has opted for a MediaTek silicon. Other than this, everything else is the same.
The Realme GT Neo sports a 6.43-inch Full HD+ Samsung Super AMOLED display with a 91.7% screen-to-body ratio and a 120Hz refresh rate. It also has a 360Hz touch sampling rate, 98% NTSC gamut, and 100% DCI-P3 color gamut support. The panel also has a punch-hole in the top left corner that houses a 16-megapixel front camera.
Under the hood, it has the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 processor with ARM GR7 MC9 GPU. It is available in three configuration options: 6GB of RAM with 128GB UFS 3.1 onboard storage, 8GB of RAM with 128GB of storage, and 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM with 256GB UFS 3.1 onboard storage. There is no microSD card slot available with any of the variants.
The triple rear camera setup includes a 64-megapixel Sony IMX682 primary sensor, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor, and a 2-megapixel 4cm macro sensor. The phone has a 16-megapixel selfie shooter with f/2.5 aperture. The whole package is powered by a 4,500mAh battery with support for the 65W fast charging method. It will be running Realme UI 2.0 based on the new Android 11 out of the box. Other important features include a USB Type-C port, WiFi 6, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
