The fastest-growing smartphone brand is all set to launch a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 phone it has dubbed the Realme Race. And now, we may finally have the actual name of the said model.
(Update, March 4: The Realme GT is now official! See its prices and specs here.)
(Update, February 18: Save the launch date of the Realme GT with Snapdragon 888!)
Realme chief marketing officer Chase Xu has posted images of a Nissan GT-R and other grand tourers on China’s social media platform Weibo, seemingly confirming previous reports saying that the upcoming unit is called the Realme GT.
The posts don’t necessarily mean that the phone manufacturer has a tie-up with a car company; we believe that they stand for what the device represents. Remember that grand tourer sports cars are designed for high-speed and long-distance races. So we actually have high expectations for the handset that is confirmed to usher in a new flagship series for Realme.
About a week ago, a smartphone with model number RMX2202 was spotted on the site of Chinese certification authority TENAA showing a back panel with “GT” stamped on the lower-right side. And we now believe it’s the Realme GT (we’ll call it this until the brand itself says it is not).
The images of the unit reveal it has a rectangular rear-camera module, a punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera at the upper-left part of the screen, volume keys along the left edge, and a power button on the opposite side.
Word has it that the Realme GT could feature a 120Hz display; a 5,000mAh battery with support for 125W UltraDart fast charging; a 64MP main + 13MP ultra-wide + 13MP telephoto camera setup on the back; Android 11; and as much as 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. It’s supposed to have a flat screen and a thin chassis.
We’re keeping our eyes peeled for more updates from Realme. Hopefully, the company will finally reveal the launch date of the model code-named Race.
