Can Realme’s New GT Series Phones Be ‘Flagship Killers’?

Realme GT and Realme GT Master Edition are the two new phones from the Chinese company that essentially replace their previous X series. Both Realme GT and Realme GT Master Edition are also designed to compete with OnePlus Nord 2, Poco F3 GT, Mi 11X and Motorola Edge 20. While the Realme GT price in India starts at Rs. 37,999, Realme GT Master Edition comes as a diluted variant of the new flagship, with a starting price of Rs. 25,999.

On this week’s episode of the Gadgets 360 Orbital podcast, host Akhil Arora speaks with senior reviewers Sheldon Pinto and Aditya Shenoy to discuss all about Realme’s new GT series phones.

We talked about why Realme is quietly phasing out its X series and replacing it with Realme GT phones. The X series started a few months ago and included models including Realme X7 Max, Realme X7 5G, Realme X7 Pro 5G, and Realme X3 SuperZoom among others. To offer a new experience, Realme GT 5G and Realme GT Master Edition come with some tweaks at the design level, although surprisingly, they are limited to low-end variants.

Between the two models, the Realme GT Master Edition comes in a Voyager Gray model for the base 6GB RAM + 128GB storage variant that has a unique suitcase-like design and a vegan leather finish. The regular Realme GT 5G, on the other hand, has a Racing Yellow color version that has the racetrack-shaped stripes on the back and the similar vegan leather that is available in the Realme GT Master Edition.

Realme GT first impressions: the makings of a ‘flagship killer’

In addition to a unique shade, Realme GT 5G and Realme GT Master Edition have glass-back options that make them look similar to all other devices in their price segments.

Despite being marketed as “flagship killers,” the Realme GT 5G and Realme GT Master Edition do not have premium features, such as IP rating for waterproof design or wireless charging support.

The Realme phones, however, have the latest Qualcomm SoCs along with 5G support and some other eye-catching specs that include full-HD + displays with 120Hz refresh rate and triple rear cameras to attract buyers looking for a decent option below. the Rs. 40,000 price segment.

We also talked about performance, gaming experience, and battery life on both Realme GT 5G and Realme GT Master Edition. We also dig into how well the phones stand up to the competition, including the OnePlus Nord 2, Poco F3 GT, Mi 11X, and the Motorola Edge 20.
