New Delhi: The Realme GT 2 Pro is a smartphone you’ve probably never seen before. It’s hard to believe it’s from Realme, an Oppo spin-off known for introducing phones — and other items – on the spur of the moment, virtually every other week lately. We’re not just talking about the aesthetics here; we’re talking about Realme’s whole strategy to developing its “most premium flagship ever.”
The GT 2 Pro is packaged in a huge, bulky white box. It has all of the fundamental features that are often absent from expensive phones these days. The back panel, here, is said to leave up to 35.5% less carbon footprint than competing devices.
The phone itself has a look that is instantly appealing. Despite a large battery inside, it’s small and light. It’s not a little phone, but it feels excellent in the hand. Most importantly, the back is made of a papery leathery textured bio-polymer substance, which gives it a completely new look and feel and sets it apart from the ubiquitous glass slabs. Paper White and Paper Gree are both inspired by paper, and you can even write on it using a pencil.
Imagine scribbling notes or a phone number on the back of your phone. You can even clear it up with an eraser. That’s a great example of creativity, and it’s one that can be put to good use. Why hadn’t this been done before? Realme calls it Paper Tech, and the same material is used on the phone’s packaging. Steel Black is the third colour in this series.
Apart from the camera square, there is another slightly elevated section on the rear with the Realme brand and the designer’s signature. Good idea, but a little sloppy execution. The sides are bent inwards and are framed in aluminium. Overall, the phone appears to be of the highest calibre.
The design is a bit polarising- framed in aluminium
Glass, even ceramic, is nearly typically associated with premium flagships like these. As a result, our minds have been conditioned to believe that glass equals quality and that everything else, particularly plastic, does not. Two of the GT 2 Pro’s variations, Paper White and Paper Green, include a plastic back, which may elicit a reaction from individuals who are picky about such things. Realme isn’t utilising ordinary plastic in the GT 2 Pro, for what it’s worth.
The AMOLED display on the 6.7-inch screen is sharp and high-resolution. This is a 2K (1440 x 3216 pixels) display with LTPO 2.01 technology that allows it to switch between 1Hz and 120Hz refresh rates depending on the workload or if the user sets it manually. Touch sampling rate, which peaks at 1000Hz.
The bezels around this gorgeous screen are thin and even, and the front camera dot is tucked away in the left corner. The display has a maximum brightness of 1400 nits. The screen is protected with Gorilla Glass Victus. There are stereo speakers that support Dolby Atmos, but they’re just OK.
The in-display fingerprint sensor
This phone’s fingerprint sensor is in-display and works quickly, but it also does a neat trick when paired with the software. In the same manner as unlocking, pressing down on the general fingerprint area brings up a shortcuts menu of apps you can set up for easy access. This way, you can get right to the camera, texting, and other features.
The GT 2 Pro runs on new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor
The GT 2 Pro is the first smartphone to have Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset. This gadget is renowned for heating up a little, but it features a stainless steel vapour cooling system that helps to keep the heat under control better than others. If you press the gadget a little, you can feel it warm up a little, but it’s not noticeable.
Fast Charging Battery, GT 2 Pro comes with a charger bundled in
The battery is a 5,000mAh with 65W charging and the charger bundled in. It lasts quite well. There’s no 3.5mm jack and no rating for water resistance. Pushing the speed and power even more is 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM with 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. There is an 8GB/128GB variant too.
Cameras include a 50MP main and a 50MP ultra-wide
Its camera technology, at least on paper, is also rather excellent. A 50MP primary camera (Sony IMX 766 sensor behind an optically stabilised lens), a 50MP ultrawide-angle camera (Samsung JN1 sensor behind a 150-degree FOV lens), and a 40x micro-lens camera with autofocus are the three cameras on the rear. A 32MP camera is located on the front of the device.
Price of the GT 2 Pro
The GT 2 Pro in this configuration costs 57,999, but expect for deals soon. The 8GB model costs $49,999.
