After weeks of teasers, Realme has finally unveiled the GT Neo5 SE in China. The new model shares some of its most important features with the normal GT Neo5, which was launched internationally as the Realme GT3. But there are three main differences – the chipset, the camera and the battery.
The Realme GT Neo5 SE offers a 6.74-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 2772 x 1240 pixels and a refresh rate of 144 Hz. There is also a 16-megapixel selfie camera and an optical fingerprint sensor under the display. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 chipset along with up to 16 GB of RAM and 1 TB of storage. The main camera has a 64-megapixel sensor, plus an 8-megapixel ultra-wide and a 2-megapixel microscope lens.
The other notable difference between the GT Neo5 and the new SE model is the battery capacity and charging speed. The SE offers a capacity of 5,500 mAh versus 5,000 mAh for the GT Neo5, but only charges at 100 watts versus 150/240 watts for the regular GT Neo5. Realme UI 4.0 based on Android 13 is used as the operating system.
The Realme GT Neo5 SE is available in blue and black colors. Prices in China start at 2,099 CNY (€280/$305) for the 8/256 GB configuration. 2,799 CNY (€374/$406) are due for the version with 16 GB of RAM and 1 TB of storage. Open sale in China begins April 10th. It is not yet known if and when an international version called Realme GT3 SE will come.
