The Asian company then showed off the imagination to choose the colors of the GT Neo 2. Starting from the version BlackMint, characterized by a back cover with double coloring: the back is in a not too saturated green, with a vertical black stripe. In addition to this, a more “standard” livery was also chosen with an iridescent blue tending to yellow. Finally, there is also a version Pure Black by glass AG.

From the previous indications, there would also be a version AMG (inspired by Mercedes-AMG GT R, in fact) totally in green, but it has not been presented. It is not excluded that it can reach this point on the Global market.

For the display, we have a flat panel from 6.62 "Full HD + (2400 x 1080 pixels) in 20: 9 with solution punch-hole on the left side and Gorilla Glass 5 protection. It is a solution Samsung E4, with 5.000.000: 1 contrast, 15% reduced power consumption and 1.300 peak nits.

Almost a record in the smartphone field, second only to the 720 Hz panel seen on the last one Red Magic 6S Pro.

As for connectivity, the new GT Neo 2 is equipped with well 11 antennas placed at 360 ° for the entire smartphone, which will always be able to guarantee excellent coverage.

Dissipation to diamond particles

To the super charging and the other features must also be added a record heat dissipation. In fact, thanks to an 8-layer system, of which a small plate with diamond particles, a vapor chamber and also a 3D graphene layer customized by the brand. All this produces a dissipation for an area 17.932 mm², which according to Realme is the first in the sector.


On the software side, we still find Android 11 customized with the Realme UI 2.0, but the brand has announced that from October 2021 it will be able to be updated to the Realme UI 3.0. As with the models in the range, it also supports enhanced mode GT 2.0.
