Back in March, Realme revealed a strategy focused on launching two flagships. One focuses in performance, while the second one will bring an appealing camera setup. The brand introduced the Realme GT 5G in China as its performance flagship in the same month. Until now, the device has been exclusive to the Chinese market. But several reports have been suggesting its arrival in Global markets. Now, it is confirmed, Realme will bring the Realme GT in June for global markets but this isn’t the only novelty. In July, the company will finally introduce its camera flagship.
Today, Realme India CEO Madhav Sheth has announced the arrival of the Realme GT series in the global market. Sheth shared an official tweet claiming that the upcoming new Realme GT smartphones will launch in June and July. According to the report, the company is gearing up to launch two handsets in the global market. One of them will be a 5G performance flagship and another will be the Realme GT camera flagship. Apparently, this camera smartphone also carries the Realme GT moniker.

According to the Tweet, Realme will bring the performance variant aka Realme GT 5G in June. The other device will with a camera-centric approach be released in July. Unfortunately, Sheth didn’t reveal any specific launch dates for the smartphone nor suggested any device name. Could it be called Realme GT SuperZoom?
The Realme GT variant focused on the camera is said to come with a MediaTek chipset. So, maybe the smartphone will reach global markets as a Realme GT Neo but with a 108MP camera instead of the 64MP primary shooter. The device may also bring a telephoto camera to improve its camera capabilities. We can also expect Optical Image Stabilization for steady video recording.
Realme GT 5G specifications
As far as the standard performance flagship is concerned, its specs should remain unchanged. The Snapdragon 888-powered flagship comes with a 6.43-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. It has a top-left punch-hole comprising a 16MP camera. The screen has Corning Gorilla Glass 5 coating.
The SD888 comes with up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. The device runs Android 11-based Realme UI 2.0. It has a triple-camera setup comprising a 64MP Sony IMX682 primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 2MP macro lens. The flagship draws power from a 4,500mAh battery complete with 65W fast charging.
