Realme is planning a new launch in India, merely days before bringing the vanilla GT2 on May 4. The Realme GT Neo3 is scheduled to launch on April 29 in the Asia-Pacific country, marking the beginning of its global rollout.
The press release confirming the date calls it “the D-Day”, tastelessly cheapening the historical importance of the name.
The Realme GT Neo3 was first mentioned at MWC 2022 by company CEO Madhav Sheth, and it took the brand a month before making the phone official, launching it first in China. It has 150W fast charging, which is the fastest currently in a smartphone, and also has an 80W option that comes with a larger battery capacity.
The quick charging is not the only impressive feature of the phone - it also has a Le Mans-themed paintjob that appeared in the Indian teasers, meaning it will also be available in the country. Additionally there's a 6.7” AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate, a 50MP main camera and Android 12 out of the box.
The price of the Realme GT Neo3 in China starts from CNY1,999, but the 150W version is at least CNY2,599. This translates to $315 and $405, respectively, meaning India is likely to see the fancy variant sell for at least INR30,000, according to the current exchange rates.
Anyone with a practical working life these days, seeing how everything from buisness to academics depends on smartphones. Anyway if 150w kills the battery I'll take the 120w. Anything less than 120w is for grandmas with cats.
