Today, as part of a major new product launch event, Realme unveiled the lower-priced GT 2 alongside the full-fledged flagship GT 2 Pro, the heart of which is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, which was launched in 2020. The differences between smartphones are not just in the hardware platform used.
The base Realme GT 2 has a 6.62-inch Samsung E4 AMOLED screen that supports refresh rates of up to 120 Hz. The sensor layer offers a sampling rate of up to 120 Hz. The panel is covered with a protective Corning Gorilla Glass 5 glass.
The Realme GT 2 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset, which powers most of the 2021 Android flagships. The processor works in conjunction with 8 or 12 GB of RAM. The storage capacity is 128 or 256 GB.
When it comes to cameras, the main module combines a 50MP Sony IMX766 sensor, a 119 degree ultra wide angle camera and a 2MP depth sensor. The front camera offers a resolution of 16 MP.
The Realme GT 2 is equipped with a 5000 mAh battery with support for 65 W fast charging. From the older GT 2 Pro, the basic model has taken over features such as a powerful cooling system with a diamond core and a huge evaporation chamber, a large X-axis linear vibration motor and an omnidirectional NFC module.
Together with the “ordinary” GT 2, Realme presented the GT 2 Master Edition, which, like the older GT 2 Pro, is characterized by the use of environmentally friendly materials in the manufacture of the case. Android 12 runs on the smartphone with the proprietary Realme UI 3.0 shell ex works.
The base model Realme GT 2 with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage costs $ 410. The conversion with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of permanent storage costs 440 US dollars. The most advanced configuration with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage costs $ 485.
