realme is upping the ante with the release of their new flagship killer: the realme GT 5G. The brand is pegging it as one of the most affordable smartphones in the market to come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 along with other attractive features.
The realme GT 5G has all the furbishing of a flagship device with 5G capabilities, up to 12GB LPDDR5 RAM, up to 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage, alongside with the aforementioned top-class Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset.
Its spec sheet does not stop there. It comes with a 6.43-inch 2400 x 1080 AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, 360Hz sampling rate, and HDR10+ support. It also has a triple camera setup at the back – a 64MP f/1.8 main lens, an 8MP f/2.2 ultrawide, and a 2MP f/2.4 macro – and a 16MP f/2.5 selfie camera.
The device is powered by a 4,500mAh battery that supports the brand’s 65W Fast Charging. An in-display fingerprint scanner is present as well as a 3.5mm audio jack for those who enjoy a wired audio experience.
