Realme GT Neo Flash Edition expected soon
The Realme GT Neo Flash Edition is said to be essentially a souped-up variant of the Realme GT Neo; the soup-up being a faster charging solution. The standard phone relies on a 50W fast charging solution and Realme is expected to use its faster 65W solution that we saw earlier in older phones. Rest of the specifications are expected to remain unchanged. Also Read - Realme Watch 2, Realme Watch 2 Pro budget smartwatch with IP68 water resistance launched
Now, the Realme X7 Max is coming to India possibly next month, and based on rumours, it will be based on the Realme GT Neo. What remains to be seen is whether Realme upgrades the charging mechanism to the 65W solution or sticks to 50W. This choice could also determine the pricing. Realme will be the first company in India to debut the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 chip with this one.
Speculations suggest that the Realme X7 Max could be priced competitively to take on the recently launched Xiaomi Mi 11X and iQOO 7. In the process, Realme could also make the Realme X7 Pro cheaper to make it go up against the Poco X3 Pro, or replace the ageing Realme X3.
Coming back to the Realme X7 Max, you can expect to see a 6.4-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 120Hz and an in-display fingerprint sensor. The phone is also expected to use a 4500mAh battery.
To take on the X7 Max, Poco is expected to come up with Poco F3 GT later this year. This one is supposed to be a renamed Redmi K40 Gaming Edition, using the same Dimensity 1200 chip. Unlike the Realme phone, the Poco phone gets several gaming-specific additions.
