Announcement. Realme GT Neo 5G, or how we can reduce the cost of a very fast smartphone

Qualcomm's flagship chipset has onesmall flaw. They are extremely expensive. The newly announced Realme GT Neo 5G is an almost exact replica of the Realme GT 5G smartphone. Only that first GT was made on the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset, and the new MediaTek Dimensity 1200 (6 nm) chip was installed in the GT Neo. Now look at the price plate. It's easy to see that you have to pay extra for the right to use a smartphone on Qualcomm. And a lot.

But maybe MediaTek Dimensity 1200 is somethingbad and weak? It is too early to draw final conclusions, since the latest chipset, no reviews. Maybe it turns out that he is in trouble with overheating. Or something else. But there are definitely no problems with it, so it is with speed. A couple of "first glances" of GT Neo in the Chinese Internet area have already appeared. There are also the first AnTuTu9 tests. 700 thousand points. For comparison, the Snapdragon 888 in AnTuTu9 is just over 800K points (and about 700K points in AnTuTu8).

Briefly about the rest of the characteristics.

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.Charging is very fast - 50W. The Realme GT had a slightly faster charge at 65W. But, curiously, the complete charger for smartphones is the same - and it is at 65 W.

Cameras. Here we saved a little.The main photomodule is Sony IMX682 with a resolution of 64 MP. 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 power of iron in GT Neo, of course, is incomparably higher.

Two more modules are 8 + 2 MP, simple shirik andmacro. No telescopes, periscopes, optical stabilizations or other good but expensive frills. The front camera is also unpretentious, with a resolution of 16 MP.

Pleasant.There is an NFC module, 5G, Wi-Fi 6 and even a standard audio output. Despite the fact that the Realme GT 5G is presented in China, there are almost all the LTE bands you and I need - except for Band 20. (By the way, the Realme GT also had a Band 20).

Less pleasant - the fingerprint scanner is built into the screen. I don’t like that - my appetite disappears.

It is unlikely that the Realme GT Neo 5G will be officially sold outside of China. But Ali is likely to show up.
