The highly anticipated flagship killer, Realme GT, is now available globally! As a flagship killer, it is bound to expect premium midrange price with flagship-level specs. The company also introduced the “GT Mode” that greatly enhances your experience on games and makes the phone perform at its best.
For starters, it comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5G processor and comes with two options: 8/128 and 12/256. Unfortunately, they have not announced the rumoured 16/512 that was seen just before the launch. However, it might launch silently, or not at all.
The Realme GT comes with three cameras with a 64mp Sony IMX686 powering the main one. The other two are an 8mp ultrawide and a 2mp macro. Realme has not focused much on the camera here since it is a gaming flagship phone. For the front camera, while unannounced, is a 16mp single shooter.
Just like the Chinese variant, the Realme GT has 65W fast charging coupled with a 4500mAh battery. Realme said it can fully charge your phone from empty to full in just 35 minutes.
The Realme GT has a stainless steel cooling system in which they claim dissipates faster than the usual cooling system other phones have, alongside this, the phone only weighs 186g and has a thin measurement of 8.4mm, making it easy to hold in the hands. A typical size for a phone like Realme GT.
The Realme GT managed to keep a headphone jack AND have dual Dolby Atmos stereo speakers at the same time! Why can’t Apple learn from that? The audio is Hi-res certified, making for an impressive and immersive sound.
How could we forget about the display! The display uses a 120Hz SAMOLED FHD+ panel measuring 6.43in. It also has a fast touch sampling rate of 360Hz. Because it is SAMOLED, it should support HDR10+ and 10-bit colour.
Also, the Realme GT is one of handful of smartphones that is compatible with Android 12 Beta 1. So anyone who buys the Realme GT will be able to experience Android 12 with RealmeUI on top of course.
While we expect the phone to arrive on Philippine shores soon, let’s use the European price as its basis. The 8/128 variant starts at 449 EUR (~26.2K php) while the higher end 12/256 would cost you 599 EUR (~35K php). The phone comes in three colours with racing aesthetics, hence the name “Realme GT”: Dashing Silver, Dashing Blue and a leather-coated Racing Yellow. On some markets, there will be early bird prices. For instance, AliExpress users would enjoy a discounted price of 369 EUR (~21.5K php) for the 8/128 variant and Amazon Prime users would enjoy a discount price of 499 EUR (~29.1K php) for the 12/256 variant. As we mentioned, the phone should be available in the Philippines soon, and we expect it to have a lower price tag due to lower taxes, and the fact that its main competitor, Poco F3, is now available in the Philippines for an even smaller price of 17,799 php.
