Specifications of the new Realme GT 5G phone, the cheapest phone with a Snapdragon 888 processor

Specifications of the new Realme GT 5G phone, the cheapest phone with a Snapdragon 888 processor.

At the beginning of March, Realme introduced its most well-equipped smartphone, which immediately began to attract attention. And not only thanks to its distinctive design, but also decent equipment. We didn't know the price after the premiere, but Realme promised to be very aggressive. And the manufacturer did not lie. You will be searching in vain in the Czech market for a cheaper smartphone with Snapdragon 888 processor, 64MP camera and support for 5G networks compared to the Realme GT 5G reviewed today.

The vegan leather version features an original design that grabs attention

I admit that I was really looking forward to testing this piece, especially thanks to the distinctive design of the more expensive version, the back of which is made of yellow-orange vegan leather, into which a dark glass strip is inserted, which extends to the unit with three cameras.

Realme GT 5G flagship killer?

The classic version of the Realme GT 5G with a glass back (in blue or silver) also does not look bad - the surface with incident light changes color and creates interesting reflections, however I can recommend a variant with a leather back that looks better . It's quite surprising that the skin looks just like the vitreous variant.

I can't help but feel that this is one of the most original smartphones this year in terms of design. The fact that you will attract attention with the novelty in your surroundings is evidenced by the fact that I was stopped during the test by several people who asked what kind of phone I own. Their intensely colored leather backs can simply be captivated.

The yellow-orange vegetable leather is pleasant to the touch and thanks to the special treatment of the surfaces, you do not have to worry about easily damaging or scratching the leather. After two weeks of extensive testing, when I didn't save the phone, there wasn't a single scratch on it. The fact that the screen is already covered with protective foil at the factory will also be satisfying.

The weight of both variants is slightly higher - 186 grams, however, thanks to the well-balanced center of gravity of the Realme GT, it feels lighter in the hand than it actually weighs. Despite the larger dimensions, where the 6.43-inch screen has a share, the new ergonomics are perfect.

At the bottom, in addition to the system speaker, which works quite as standard, you will also find a USB-C connector and a 3.5mm audio output for connecting headphones. The power key and volume buttons are perfectly located on the sides so that you can reach them reliably with your fingers. At first glance, the frame looks like plastic, but don't be fooled, it's aluminum.

Cheaper with Snapdragon 888

The manufacturer describes the novelty in its promotional materials as a super sport among phones, not only because of the very decent performance, which can withstand comparisons with the best competing models, but also due to the fact that Realme GT 5G was developed under the codename Race. Another reference for speed is, of course, support for 5G networks. I checked the speed of 5G in Prague in the network of the T-Mobile operator.
