Handset maker realme has finally launched the realme GT series in India after teasing it for a while. The brand has brought two models to the country, namely realme GT (review) and realme GT Master Edition (hands-on). Let’s take a look at what these smartphones have to offer and how much they cost in the region.
realme GT, realme GT Master Edition Specifications & Features
The realme GT and the realme GT Master Edition flaunt a 6.43-inch Samsung Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels (FHD+), 120Hz refresh rate, and 360Hz touch sampling rate. The panel covers 100% of the DCI-P3 color gamut and 98% of the NTSC color gamut. It has a peak brightness of 1000 nits, 5,000,000:1 contrast ratio, 91.7% screen-to-body ratio, and a single punch-hole at the top left corner.
Just like the display, the rear camera setup is also identical on the two. Both sport a triple camera setup consisting of a 64MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide unit, and a 2MP macro shooter. However, for selfies and video calls, the vanilla GT uses a 16MP snapper, whereas the Master Edition has a 32MP sensor.
Now, talking about the major difference, the realme GT is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset as compared to a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G SoC present inside the realme GT Master Edition. The former comes with LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage but there’s no information on the type of RAM and storage included with the latter.
On the connectivity front, the duo supports dual-SIM, 5G, WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, GNSS, and NFC. Further, the realme GT has a 3.5mm headphone jack as well as dual stereo speakers. The realme GT Master Edition, on the other hand, lacks both of these features. Anyway, the duo arrives with all the essential sensors like an in-display fingerprint sensor, accelerometer, ambient light sensor, compass, proximity sensor, and gyroscope.
Although the two run realme UI 2.0 based on Android 11 and support 65W SuperDart fast charging protocol, the standard model is backed by a 4,500mAh battery, while the Master Edition gets its energy from a slightly smaller 4,300mAh battery.
These phones measure around 8-9mm in thickness and weigh about 170-190g. They come in glass and vegan leather finishes. Last but not least, the leather finish on the Master Edition has a suitcase-inspired design.
