Realme launched its new Realme GT Neo 5 SE smartphone – after dozens of leaks and rumors; they finally did it. This phone is a feature-trimmed version of the Realme GT Neo 5, launched in February as the world’s first phone with 240W charging. Realme Launches GT Neo 5 SE with impressive features and specifications at an affordable price point.

The screen has a 1.5K resolution of 1240 x 2772 pixels, a refresh rate of 144Hz, a 2160Hz high-frequency dimming, and a peak brightness of 1,400 nits.

The device also have a 5,500mAh battery that supports 100W charging, a first on a mid-range phone. Realme claims the device can easily last up to two days on a single charge. Their claim seems reasonable – after reviewing hundreds of phones, it is easier to say a phone with more than 5000mAh battery can last two days. Other features include dual SIM, 5G, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, GPS, NFC, an IR blaster, a USB-C port, dual stereo speakers, and a 3.5mm audio jack.
