ICYMI: Realme has launched the GT Neo 3 globally, with Neo 3T following debut.


Fast, blast, past

The GT series has proven Realme can also make performance phones. It is named after a grand tourer, a type of sports car designed with the best performance in mind. The racing stripes design makes that quite obvious for the Realme GT series and Realme has always been comparing it to today’s high-performance cars.

The third iteration of the Realme GT Neo has been released in Asia almost about a week ago. The phone speaks of the Mediatek Dimensity 8100 chipset, a chipset that has set a good impression on launch day thanks to its efficiency and raw performance. Due to it being manufactured by TSMC (on a 5nm process by the way), the chipset theoretically has better efficiency than the flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset.

Okay, let’s start with the basics. The display is a 6.71″ FHD+ (2412x1080px) AMOLED display with 120Hz resolution. Realme dubs this display as “Reality Vision” due to it having features that simulate the colours of real-life imagery thanks to a 100% DCI-P3 colour gamut, HDR10+ support, and 1.07 billion colour depth. It is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

At the back are its triple camera setup, the primary one being a 50MP Sony IMX766 camera. That means it has OIS built-in as well as good colour accuracy. Alongside it are the 119-degree 8mp ultrawide and the 2mp macro camera. The latter two are just there really for supporting purposes. It has a 16mp selfie camera.

As we mentioned earlier, the phone speaks of a Mediatek Dimensity 8100 chipset. It is a slightly weaker variant of the flagship Dimensity 9000 and its performance is nearly comparable to that of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 thanks to its 5nm TSMC manufacturing process. It is paired with 8 or 12GB LPDDR5 RAM and either 128 or 256GB UFS 3.1 storage, plus the option to add more RAM virtually.

The phone comes with a standard 5000mAh battery split into two (one cell has 2500mAh capacity). These battery cells are complemented with a really fast 80W fast charging capability so you could game almost nonstop. It is charged via USB-C. There’s also a 150W version for the 12/256 configuration

In terms of audio, the phone has stereo speakers, Hi-Res Audio support, Dolby Atmos certification, and dual-mic noise cancellation features but it skips out on the headphone jack. It also has an in-display fingerprint scanner with a gimmicky heart rate monitor and NFC. It boots up with RealmeUI 3.0 based on Android 12

It comes in three colours all sporting a striped design. These colours are Nitro Blue, Sprint White, and Asphalt Black. All named after a “racing” theme.

Realme GT Neo 3T

The Realme Neo 3T is a lower-end variant and is based off the regular Neo 3. Which means it retains almost the same features, with some alterations. Mainly, the weaker yet popular Snapdragon 870 chipset.

Like the regular Neo 3, it kept the same display except the phone is slightly smaller at 6.62in. The phone also comes with a different design but still in-line with the racing theme, sporting the checkered flag.

The cameras are also back to midrange, the typical ones too. The 50MP Sony IMX766 has been downgraded to a 64mp midranger but the other two auxiliary cameras were kept. It kept the same 16mp front-facing camera.

The battery and charge rate are also identical: 5000mAh and 80W fast charging. It comes in yellow, white, and black. The latter being more traditional. It starts at USD 470 (~Php 25.3K)for the 8/128 configuration while the 8/256 configuration is valued at USD 510 (~Php 27.4K)
