Gizchina News of the week
The Realme GT Master series was introduced back in the last year. The devices were below the GT in terms of specs. The Master Explorer had the Snapdragon 870 instead of the Snapdragon 888 found in the Realme GT 5G. This time, however, it seems that the Realme GT2 Master Explorer Edition will be Realme’s definitive flagship for 2022. The phone will bring the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC. We already know how it surpasses its predecessor in performance and power efficiency.
The new handset is aiming higher with a mightier chipset, but we need to wait and see if the device will also bring other upgrades. The last year’s Master series was touted as “premium” thanks to a unique design that had the contribution of a popular Japanese artist.
Realme GT2 Master Explorer alleged specifications
According to TENAA, the new flagship will pack a 6.7-inch AMOLED screen with Full HD+ resolution. The device is touted to come in two variants with 100 W and 150 W charging. Perhaps, these variants will bring differences in battery capacity. The device will have a triple-camera array with two 50 MP snappers, up to 12 GB of RAM, and 512 GB of Internal Storage. Thankfully, we won’t need to wait much longer as the device is hitting the shelves as soon as the next month.
Unfortunately, we don’t know if this device will hit other markets besides China.
