Realme GT 5 officially teased by Realme China’s VP
Realme is reportedly planning to launch a new flagship phone in China, and it has been some time since the company released a GT-series flagship smartphone after the Realme GT 2 series, which was announced in January 2022 in China. Xu Qi, Vice President of Realme China, has confirmed that the company will soon be releasing GT-branded flagships in the country.
As shown in the screenshot provided, Xu Qi shared an image displaying “Neo” and “GT” product brandings, hinting that the Realme GT 5 series might be on the horizon. According to rumours, the Realme GT 5 series will consist of two models: the Realme GT 5 and the Realme GT 5 Pro. These smartphones are expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipsets, respectively.
Recently, two Realme phone models with the numbers RMX3820 and RMX3823 were approved by Chinese certification platforms, 3C and TENAA. While these phones have different batteries and charging speeds, they share the same specifications. Initially believed to be the Realme GT Neo 6, it now appears that these devices will be named the Realme GT 5.
The Realme GT 5 is expected to debut as early as next month (August) in China. On the other hand, the Realme GT 5 Pro might be released by the end of this year or in the first quarter of 2024. There is no word on the global availability of the GT 5 series. As per a recent teaser, the company is expected to confirm the launch date for the Chinese market on July 28.
