Realme gave the first step in the “2021 flagship territory” in the beginning of March. The company unveiled the Realme GT 5G as a compelling flagship device featuring the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888. Not only a mere flagship, but this is also the cheapest Snapdragon 888-powered smartphone to date. The only bad side is that it is exclusive for the Chinese market, but that will change very soon.

Now, it is confirmed, the device will hit the global shelves on June 15th, 2021. Realme started its teasing campaign in the end of the last month, and now the device is confirmed to reach many markets including India.
