Realme is starting to build up the hype for its latest flagship phone. While the phone hasn’t been formally announced, they have held a press event announcing several unique key features.
Realme has confirmed the GT 2 Pro will be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, which was a given.
However, they have also announced that the phone will have:
- Bio based design ( Made of Pulp & other Bio degradables )
- 150° Ultra wide angle camera
- Fisheye camera
- Master Paper design
- 360° NFC
- Environment-friendly packaging design
- Ultra wide band antenna
Previous leaks have come out confirming its design and also revealed that the phone might have an under-display camera, pack a QHD+ screen, and come with up to 12GB RAM and up to 1TB storage onboard.
An early leak also showed the phone scoring an incredibly high score on Antutu, which managed to beat the Dimensity 9000 SoC score, which has also been leaked recently.
The new camera specifications are quite interesting, it looks like Realme are trying to offer something a little different rather than trying to compete with the big players in the game by using the standard camera setup.
Most ultra-wide lends are around 120°, so the new 150° lens will capture a much wider angle.
Fisheye cameras provide some impressive results, but it could end up falling into the Realme of a gimmick feature. It all depends on the quality of the lens.
Unfortunately, there has been no indication on when the phone will launch. I reviewed the original Realme GT back in June, but I would hope that this early announcement would indicate that GT 2 will launch much earlier in the year.
