Realme earlier this month introduced the GT Neo5, powered by a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset and the world’s fastest-charging battery in a smartphone. Reports from China now suggest that the company is working on a new member of the series. The Realme GT Neo5 Lite or GT Neo 5 SE becomes part of the Realme mid-range with slightly less performance.
According to credible tipster Digital Chat Station, a chipset called Qualcomm SM7475 powers the Realme GT Neo5 Lite. This is said to be the Snapdragon 7 Gen 2, which has not yet been presented. The 50-megapixel main camera with a Sony IMX890 sensor and the RGB notification light on the back are also dropped. Accordingly, the new Realme smartphone will be significantly cheaper.
Instead, the Realme GT Neo5 Lite snaps photos with a 64 megapixel camera with an Omnivision OV64M sensor. The sensor has also not yet been announced. In addition to the camera module, the notification window, which shows the Snapdragon chipset and some basic information, also has to go.
Charging is the biggest selling point of the two Realme GT Neo5 versions at either 240 watts or 150 watts. The upcoming version should only charge with 100 watts, but the battery will be upgraded to 5,500 mAh. From our point of view, this is a more than fair exchange.
