As expected, the Realme GT Neo 3 was introduced in China today; which has become a powerful bid to become a bestseller. But before proceeding with the announcement of the new product, the company boasted that the army of realme GT Neo 2 owners amounted to 2 million users. And now, a year later, we meet a successor, where the main innovations include the hardware platform, a camera with an optical stub, and an increased speed of fast charging.
Realme GT Neo 3 received an “updated” design, which implies a typical display with a round hole for the front camera and a characteristic design of the main camera unit on the rear panel. Today, there are many smartphones made in a similar way. But to make the Realme GT Neo 3 look fresh and cheerful overall, it received a spectacular Le Mans purple color scheme with a couple of stripes on the back, designed to evoke an association with a sports car.
The choice was also available in black and silver colors, where only the latest version also received the “signature” stripes on the back. Gorilla Glass 5 on the front and back, but the frame is made of plastic. The weight of the smartphone was 188 grams and the dimensions are 163.3 x 75.6 x 8.2 mm.

The front of the Realme GT Neo 3 has a 6.7-inch OLED screen with a resolution of 2412×1080 pixels. The contrast ratio was 5,000,000:1, color accuracy JNCD ≈ 0.4, peak brightness 1000 nits, there is support for DCI-P3, the refresh rate is 120 Hz and the touch response is 360 Hz (1000 Hz intelligent instantaneous). The company especially focused on the minimal frame around the perimeter of the display: the side – 1.48 mm, and the top and bottom borders – 1.84 mm and 2.37 mm, respectively. All this made it possible to “stretch” the display to 94.2% of the front surface. There is also a display fingerprint scanner and a 16-megapixel Samsung S5K3P9 front camera, which fits into a hole with a diameter of 3.74 mm.
Realme GT Neo 3 came out in two versions, differing in battery capacity and fast charging power. So, one version offers a 5000 mAh dual-cell battery and 80 W wired charging; and the second one offers 4500 mAh and 150 W charging. In the latter case, it will take 19 minutes to fully “refuel”, and only 5 minutes is enough to replenish the battery life by 50%.

Thanks to the nine-level cooling system, the peak temperature of the chip is reduced by 19 degrees.
The main camera of Realme GT Neo 3 received a set of three sensors; where the main Sony IMX766 is 50 MP with an optical format of 1/1.56 “and f/1.88 aperture. It was supplemented with an 8 MP wide with a viewing angle of 119 degrees; and a macro sensor for 2 MP It is noteworthy that the main sensor was awarded an optical stub.
The Realme GT Neo 3 has stereo speakers, a linear vibration motor, a USB Type-C port; support for two SIM cards, NFC, GPS, Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1. The device is running Android 12 with Realme UI 3.0 shell.
Realme GT Neo 3 in the “standard” version with a 5000 mAh battery; and 80 W charging is available in three versions. 6/128 GB – $314, 8/128 GB – $362 and 8/256 GB – $409.
