For another year, Realme managed to keep its place as the world’s fastest-growing smartphone brand. The brand has grown in several ways during the past few years. Now, it is more than just a brand marked by budget smartphones. It also offers a plethora of other products under the lifestyle segment such as TWS audio devices, wearables, and even smart TVs. However, the smartphone category still is the company’s core business, and for that reason, it is giving it a special focus during the first months of 2021. The brand is all set to launch a bunch of new smartphones in the coming weeks. It will start with the release of the Realme Narzo 30 series in India set to happen in the next week. However, Realme fans will not have much time to rest since the brand’s flagship Realme GT 5G (Realme Race) will go official a week later on March 4. Today, the device has passed by 3C certification listing which revealed an intriguing detail about its fast-charging capabilities.
The new flagship will not debut 125W UltraDart charging after all
According to the certification authority, the device will come with 65W fast-charging capabilities and not 125W charging as previously thought. The device passed by China’s 3C certification agency with the same RMX2202 model number seen in the previous TENAA listing from earlier this month. The charging capabilities are almost half that of the mind-blowing 125W UltraDART fast charging solution. However, there is nothing wrong in having 65W fast-charging. This still provides enough power to charge a huge battery in a matter of minutes.
The Realme GT 5G is set to be the company’s first flagship of 2021, but we’re sure it will not be the only one. Apparently, Realme will leave its cutting-edge charging technology for another occasion. Perhaps for an upcoming Realme X smartphone, like a Realme X70 Pro. For now, only time will tell.
Realme GT 5G specifications
Anyway, the Realme GT 5G will come with a 120Hz refresh rate screen. Moreover, it will have up to 12GB of RAM, and 256GB of non-expandable storage. We expect a huge OLED display with a top-left punch hole for the selfie camera. Under the hood, the phone will pack Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 888 SoC. It will run Android 11 straight out of the box with Realme UI 2.0 running on top. The device presumably has a 5,000mAh battery. The camera department is composed of a 64MP primary shooter that comes alongside 13MP ultrawide and 13MP telephoto lenses. We expect more details to keep popping out in the next few days.
