The Realme GT5 is in the starting blocks for a debut on August 28 and today the brand shared more details about the upcoming flagship on Chinese social network Weibo. The chipset, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, was already known. Today, however, the confirmation came that it is the 3.2 GHz basic version of the platform and not the overclocked version that Samsung and nubia use.
Realme has also teased a powerful variant of the GT5 with 24 GB of RAM and 1 TB of storage. We’ve seen such configurations more often lately – among others on both the OnePlus Ace 2 Pro and most likely the Oppo Find N3. Another teaser on Weibo also revealed a Pixelworks X7 display chip to improve video quality.
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset comes as no great surprise. However, according to the images, users can adjust the clock speed of the CPU, which is still extremely rare to find and quite unique in such a detailed form. According to the teaser image on the top right, you can even adjust the speed of all three clusters independently.
The Realme GT5 will be officially presented on Monday. A Pro version with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset could launch later this year. The big question is which of these devices will exit Realme’s Chinese home market. And whether all of the new functions will also be available internationally.
