The Realme GT5 was officially unveiled today in several versions. The top model charges with 240 watts, filling up the 4,600 mAh battery to 20% capacity after just 80 seconds of recharging. The 150 watt version has a larger 5,240 mAh battery. Here you can recharge to 50% capacity in just 7 minutes. Regardless of the version, a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset sits at the helm, which a 9-layer cooling system with a vapor chamber measuring 20,827mm² keeps cool.
The display is a flat 6.74-inch AMOLED panel with a resolution of 1240×2772 pixels (20:9). The display reproduces colors in 10-bit and covers 100% of the DCI-P3 color space. The peak brightness is 1,400 nits. You also get high-frequency PWM dimming at 2,160 Hz and a refresh rate of 144 Hz. In addition to the Adreno GPU, the Realme smartphone also has the in-house X7 display chip. The X7 inserts additional frames into games via interpolation to increase the FPS rate.
On the back of the Realme GT5 is a 50-megapixel main camera based on a 1/1.56-inch Sony IMX890 sensor. The accompanying 24 mm lens has an f/1.9 aperture and OIS. In addition, Realme installs a 112-degree ultra-wide camera with 8 megapixels and a 2-megapixel macro camera. Next to it is the LED light, which frames a Snapdragon logo. It can light up in 26 different colors and has 5 levels of brightness. Finally, there’s a 16-megapixel selfie camera with a 16-megapixel S5K3P9 sensor.
The GT5 accepts two 5G SIM cards and is also equipped with four WLAN antennas with Wi-Fi 7 support. The Bluetooth standard is also up to date with version 5.3. There are also aptX HD, LHDC, LDAC and LC3 audio codecs, stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos and Hi-Res Audio and Dolby certifications. On the other hand, you have to do without a 3.5 mm headphone jack. An under-display fingerprint sensor with a response time of just 0.25 seconds and 3-band GPS (L1+L2+L5) complete the equipment list.
