Realme GT5 launched with 240W Charging and 24GB of RAM
Realme‘s powerful new phone is here as promised. In a nutshell, the Realme GT5 is a beast with 24GB RAM and lightning-fast 240W charging. Surprisingly, the top-tier version isn’t vastly more expensive than the base model, which is still a potent performer.
There are two variants of this phone: the 150W and the 240W. The 150W model offers 12GB RAM with 256GB storage or 16GB RAM with 512GB storage, priced at CNY 3,000 and CNY 3,300, respectively (approximately $410 and $450).
The 240W version boasts a single memory configuration, featuring a massive 24GB RAM and a 1TB storage option, costing CNY 3,800 (about $520/$480/₹43,500). Notably, these different charging systems come with varying battery capacities: 5,240mAh for the 150W model and 4,600mAh for the 240W version.
Now, let’s dive into the 240W charging system. Plug in for just 80 seconds, and you’ll have 20% battery life. Impressive, right? The 150W version doesn’t lag behind either – despite its larger battery, it reaches 50% charge in just 7 minutes.
Regardless of the version you choose, the Realme GT5 packs a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, known for its exceptional performance. Heat management is on point with a 9-layer cooling system and a substantial vapor chamber.
The display is a flat 6.74” AMOLED panel with a resolution of 1,240 x 2,772px (20:9). It supports 10-bit color and provides full DCI-P3 coverage. With a peak brightness of 1,400 nits and 2,160Hz high-frequency PWM dimming, it offers a visually stunning experience.
The display also boasts a 144Hz refresh rate, and it’s not alone in delivering gaming excellence. The Adreno GPU is coupled with an X7 display chip that enhances FPS through frame insertion.
Moving to the rear, you’ll find a 50MP primary camera with a Sony IMX890 sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, and a 2MP macro module. A customizable LED light frames the Snapdragon logo and can shine in 26 different colors with five levels of brightness. For selfies, there’s a 16MP front camera.
Connectivity-wise, the GT5 is a dual-SIM 5G phone, equipped with four Wi-Fi antennas, Wi-Fi 7 support, and a Bluetooth antenna with advanced audio codecs.
Also, additional features include stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos, an X-axis linear motor for haptic feedback, Hi-Res Audio and Dolby certification, and a fast-reacting front fingerprint reader. GPS positioning is handled by a 3-band system (L1+L2+L5).
Both versions of the Realme GT5 are up for pre-order on Realme’s Chinese store, with sales commencing on September 4. Color choices include Silver with a mirror finish and Green with a matte texture. Get ready for a thrilling smartphone experience!
