The smartphone is a successor to the Realme GT Neo, which arrived in India as the X7 Max 5G. This time, a rebrand won’t be needed as the GT series has officially replaced the X series.
The smartphone comes with a 6.62-inch Full HD+ Samsung E4 AMOLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate. It comes in three RAM/Storage variants: 6GB/128GB, 8GB/256GB, and 12GB/256GB. Although, there’s no word on which variant will arrive in India.
The camera department is home to three rear cameras: a 64-megapixel main camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens, and a 2-megapixel macro camera. There is a 16-megapixel front camera. The device comes with camera features such as AI video enhancement, super night scene, portrait mode, beauty mode, slow-motion video, HDR, and more.
It is backed by a 5,000mAh battery with support for 65W fast charging and runs Realme UI 2.0 based on Android 11. Additionally, there’s support for 5G, Stereo dual speakers, and more.
The Realme GT Neo 2 starts in China at CNY 2,499, which translates to Rs 28,000. Hence, we can expect it to fall in the sub-Rs 30,000 price bracket in India.
