Announcement. Realme GT 5G is a flagship, but not a photo flagship

To make an inexpensive flagship smartphone,need to save. The newly announced Realme GT 5G is just about that. All is cool. The most powerful chipset, the fastest charging, the screen with the highest refresh rate. The coolest modern chips in all directions. Except cameras.

To make it immediately clear.The main photomodule is Sony IMX682. A good photo module, actively used ... in middle-class smartphones. The Poco X3 has NFC, for example. However, there is a nuance. Contemporary photography is, first of all, computational photography. And the hardware power of the Realme GT is, of course, incomparably higher. Well, let's see. Soon, soon there will be the first reviews.

But let's talk about everything in order.

Why GT? Because Gran Turismo. Marketers were inspired by the cars of the same name. Like, fast, sporty, but comfortable.

The colors are nice. I especially like the yellow (Racing Yellow) - "leather". Whether real skin is not specified.

The blue and silver options are also pretty, but not too original.

The chipset was delivered the most powerful available inavailability. Qualcomm Snapdragon 888. Five nanometers, seven hundred thousand AnTuTu points. They did not regret the memory either. 8 or 12 GB of RAM, 128 or 256 GB of storage. There is no memory card support.

So that the smartphone does not overheat, setadvanced system ... stainless steel steam cooling. Just don't ask me what it is and how it works. These are the words from the press release. Sounds cool. It works, I think, too.

The screen is top-end, SuperAMOLED from Samsung. Diagonal 6.43 ″, resolution 1080 × 2400 (409 ppi). Refresh rate up to 120 Hz.

Medium battery, 4500 mAh.But it charges at lightning speed - 35 minutes from zero to one hundred percent. The press release says that "the flagship is equipped with a SuperDart charger", so, apparently, the charger is included in the standard package.

We return to the cameras. Front camera 16 MP.Behind the trio 64 + 8 + 2 MP - the main module, wide-angle, macro. No telescopes, periscopes, optical stabilizations or other good but expensive frills.

Pleasant. There is an NFC module, 5G, Wi-Fi 6 and even a standard audio output. Even though the Realme GT 5G is presented in China, there are all the LTE bands we need for you.

Less pleasant - the fingerprint scanner is built into the screen. I don’t like that - I can’t eat straight.

And about money. ¥ 2,899 (₽33,000, $ 449) for the younger version 8 + 128 GB. And ¥ 3,399 (₽38,700, $ 526) for 12 + 256GB.
