Realme has new budget phones up its sleeve. The Realme 10 Pro 5G series, which was released in China recently, is all set to launch in India on December 8. Amidst this, the brand is also working on its next Neo series smartphone dubbed Realme GT Neo 5.
As usual with many Chinese smartphone brands, Realme will be skipping the number ‘4’ and instead launching the GT Neo 5 as the successor of the GT Neo 3. As per a new leak, the GT Neo 5 may come with the fastest charging speed in the commercial market.
Realme GT Neo5 specs
The upcoming Realme GT Neo5 is said to be equipped with a MediaTek Dimensity 9-series chipset. It could feature a 6.5-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 120Hz. Camera features may include a 50MP triple rear setup and a 16MP or 32MP selfie shooter.
Realme GT Neo5 is rumored to boot the Realme UI 4.0 skin based on Android 13 right out of the box. As mentioned earlier, the 5000mAh battery variant could offer 150W charging support, and the 4600mAh edition could go to the fastest 240W charging capabilities. Since this is the early information set, we will advise you to take it with a pinch of salt.
Realme GT Neo 5 to get the battery and fast charging upgrades
According to DigitalChatStation, the Realme GT Neo 5 will come in two battery and fast-charging variants similar to GT Neo 3. There will be a big battery and fast-charging variant (5,000mAh + 150W) and a slightly smaller battery and faster-charging variant (4,600mAh + 240W).
The existing Realme GT Neo 3 also has two variants – 5,000mAh + 80W and 4,500mAh + 150W fast charging. If the new charging speeds and battery details are to be believed, the GT Neo 5 will be a big upgrade.
In addition to the battery, the camera details of the phone were also reported. The GT Neo 5 is said to come with a new camera sensor. It will have a triple camera system with a Sony IMX890 primary lens.
OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) technology
The main lens will support OIS (Optical Image Stabilization). On the front, it will likely boast a 16MP or a 32MP shooter for taking selfies. Apart from this, the smartphone is expected to come with a 6.5-inch AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution. The screen will likely be a punch-hole panel with a 120Hz refresh rate.
It will come with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. As for the UI, the device is expected to boot on the latest Android 13 OS out of the box with Realme UI on top.
The launch timeline of the device isn’t revealed yet, but it appears that the phone’s release isn’t far away. Also, the 150W variant has received Indian BIS certification. Still, the fastest 240W is yet to be listed on the certification site so it’s unclear if it will ship to the Indian shore. At the helm, it may come powered by the flagship Dimensity chipset by MediaTek.
