Realme started its Realme GT series way back in March with the Snapdragon 888-powered Realme GT 5G. Later in the same month, the company launched a more cost-effective option powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC dubbed Realme GT Neo. A few time later, the company also introduced a Snapdragon 778G phone dubbed Realme GT Master Edition and Snapdragon 870-powered Realme GT Master Explorer Edition. Now, the company is gearing up to bring yet another Snapdragon 870-powered smartphone dubbed Realme GT Neo2.
The new Realme GT Neo2 will fill the gap left by the Realme GT Master Explorer Edition in markets like India. Realme decided to not bring this variant, and now we know why: The Realme GT Neo2 has nearly the same specifications. According to reports, the new sequel for the cost-effective flagship series will reach the global markets in October 2021. Realme is yet to confirm the launch in other markets, but we expect the device’s global campaign to start soon after the Chinese release.
