Realme is bringing a new duo of smartphones to China today. However, these unexpected devices aren’t really new. In fact, they are based on the existing Realme Q3 Pro and the Realme GT Neo smartphones. Realme has bumped some of the specifications and is keen that this will be enough to sell these devices even more. For instance, the Realme Q3 Pro has just got a new Carnival Edition with the Snapdragon 768G in place of the Dimensity 1100 SoC. In terms of performance, the Dimensity 1100 is better, but some will still prefer a Snapdragon chip. Another interesting upgrade is the charging speed from 30W to 50W.

The company is also introducing two new special colorways for the Realme Q3 Pro. The first one has a toned-down black finish while the second colorway is a shiny gradient finish with the bold Dare to Leap branding on the back.
Apart from the already mentioned changes in the chipset and charging speed, most of the specs are the same. The handset comes with a 6.43-inch AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, a 4,300mAh battery, and a 64MP + 8MP + 2MP camera setup. The Realme Q3 Pro Carnival Edition retails for CNY 1,799 ($280). However, the company is selling it at an introductory price of just CNY 1,499 ($234).
The second new smartphone is the Realme GT Neo Flash Edition. It is nearly identical to the regular Realme GT Neo except for the 65W fast charging. Unlike other Realme smartphones in the premium segment, the GT Neo comes with a 50W charging speed. That’s pretty fast, but the company thinks that users will certainly enjoy the speedier variant.
For those who have missed the Realme GT Neo launch in the end of March, the device is a toned down version of the GT that switches the Snapdragon 888 in favor of a MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC. The device still has a huge battery, AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate and a 64MP triple-camera system. It enters in the cost-effective flagship segment with a very attractive pricing in China. The device is yet to reach other markets such as India where it will come as Realme X7 Max.
The new Flash Edition has a price that starts at CNY 2,299 ($358) but there’s also an early bird offer which bumps the price to CNY 1,999 ($312).
