You literally cannot go any higher than 240W and Realme’s GT Neo 5 achieved that

240W is the maximum capacity USB-C Gen 3.1 could carry for charging. TUV Rheinland certified.

Realme GT series. A belated answer to the POCO F series. The GT Neo 3 and GT Master Edition are successful in the Philippines and worldwide. The phones are named after grand tourers and as such, are designed with them in mind. Written with performance, designed to compete.

The Realme GT Neo 5 continues where the GT Neo 3 left off and even includes the striped design. Its main feature is not its flagship chipset but rather its 240W charging speed. This is insane charging speeds not achieve by any smartphone prior to it. This is also the maximum capacity available for USB-C devices.

Aside from that, the phone features a 6.74″ FullHD+ 1.5K (2772x1240px) 144Hz AMOLED screen with 100% DCI-P3 colour gamut, HDR10+ support, Dolby Vision, and 1,500Hz touch response rate. This thing is crazy responsive even with the most competitive games.

What gaming smartphone would be complete without a gaming chipset? This one flaunts the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip similar to the OnePlus 11R/Ace 2. This is a cousin of that phone, so to say. It is paired with 16GB RAM and 256GB or 1TB storage. Don’t like insane charging speeds, there’s also a much more tamed 150W beast with 8, 12, or 16GB RAM but storage is stuck to 256GB.

It is said that the 150W version is the Realme GT 3 which is odd because the Neo series should be the slightly nerfed version. Those are just rumors though so take that with a pinch of salt.

There are three cameras at the back and a 16MP Samsung ISOCELL camera at the front. These cameras are identical to the ones the OnePlus 11R uses. Namely, the flagship 50MP Sony IMX890 sensor with OIS, an 8MP Ultrawide, and a 2MP macro camera.

The battery is still 5000mAh by the way. The 240W charging speed is checked throughly by TUV-Rheinland so you don’t have to worry about sudden explosions. Also, the phone comes pre-built with liquid cooling and layers upon layers of graphite and copper for its vapour chamber system.

It has 5G, stereo speakers, dual mic noise cancellation, OTG, NFC, Bluetooth 5.2, and Wi-FI 6/6E. It does not come with a headphone jack which is no longer a surprise these days.

It is yet to launch globally. We’ll let you know of the prices then. In China, the phone launched for CNY 2,499 (~Php 20K) for the 150W 8/256 variant. This is stupidly low for such a powerful device. Meanwhile, the 240W 16/256 variant launched for CNY 3,199 (~Php 25.6K). Again, this price is pretty low for a device like this.
