The Realme GT 5 has been officially introduced in China. The strong Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 CPU powers this new smartphone. One of its most notable characteristics is its support for highly rapid 240W charging. The high-end smartphone is the latest addition to its successful GT brand and comes with impressive specifications and features, so here's all you need to know about it.
Realme worked with BYD Electronics to create the 'Miracle Glass' on the rear of the GT 5 model. The Realme GT 5 phone sports a large camera island and a dual-tone back panel. It contains a camera module that appears like a visor, similar to the Pixel phones, except it is much larger. This module has two rings for the cameras on the left. Meanwhile, the right side has a transparent glass panel showing off the Snapdragon CPU and rectangular LED light strips (dubbed Halo Pro) in various colours.
A large 6.74-inch OLED screen with 1.5K resolution and a quick 144Hz refresh rate graces the front. The new Realme GT 5 also incorporates an independent X7 display chip built by PixelWords for a better visual experience. This screen offers a peak brightness of 1400 nits, 2160 PWM dimming, 1.46mm narrow bezels, and a 93.7 percent screen-to-body ratio.
The Realme GT 5 has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, up to 24GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 1TB of UFS 4.0 storage.
