We previously talked about the possibility of seeing the Ace series move to Realme. Regarding the future of OPPO's range, there is still no confirmation but now the location of the leaks appears much clearer. The brand's next flagship, in fact, was initially “announced” with the name of Realme Breed, which recalls the OPPO saga. But as we also specified at the beginning, the trade name is officially Realme GT 5G.

The back houses a rectangular camera with triple sensor and dual LED flash.

Hardware and benchmarks

As for the code name, the term "GT" wants to underline the peculiarities of the brand's new model: speed and high performance. Sky Li, CEO of Realme, confirmed the importance of Qualcomm as a partner of the company and confirmation has arrived on the use of the Snapdragon 888.

Memory side, the chipset is accompanied by 8/12 GB of RAM L and storage from 128 / 256 GB UFS 3.1. Based on various rumors, support was expected for the UltraDart Charge but unfortunately the device is not the first in the world to have a good recharge 125W. The top of the range in fact adopts a 4.500 mAh battery with 65W fast charging: a respectable power, but no 125W in this round.

From the hardware we then come to the first benchmarks for the Realme GT, which up AnTuTu rises on the shields with an important score of 770.221, which makes us realize how powerful this device is. True that it is a benchmark, but it bodes well.

Software side - easily predictable - we will find Android 11 in the form of Realme UI 2.0, second version of the proprietary interface of the Asian brand.
