Realme GT Neo6 announced with Snapdragon 8s Gen 3

 

Back in March, Qualcomm announced a new chipset in the form of the Snapdragon 8s Gen 3. This is basically a variant of the flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, but it will be cheaper. Now it looks like the first phone to use the chipset has been announced, and it is none other than Realme's latest flagship, the GT Neo6.

 

The phone features the use of a 6.78-inch LTPO AMOLED FHD+ display with a 120Hz refresh rate. It also has a display that can go up to 6,000 nits peak brightness (HDR only). On the back of the phone, a dual camera setup can be found. This consists of a 50MP Sony IMX882 and an 8MP ultrawide which uses a Sony IMX335 sensor.

 

The phone is offered with 12-16GB of RAM, and will go up to 1TB in storage. It also packs a 5,500mAh battery with support for 120W charging. The use of Qualcomm's chipset is interesting. The chipset is based on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 but features slightly slower clock speeds. It also uses the previous-gen Adreno GPU, which is more than capable, but obviously not the latest.

 

The upside is that the use of the Snapdragon 8s Gen 3 has helped Realme make the GT Neo6 more affordable. It is priced starting at 2,099 yuan, which is around $290 after conversion. Not too bad for a flagship handset.


The Realme Note could be bringing back what Samsung gave up

 

It has been a few years since Samsung officially abandoned their Note series of smartphones, but it looks like Realme could be gearing up to pick up where Samsung left off. A post on X by Realme has teased the arrival of a new Note series of smartphones, and a subsequent leak has revealed its potential specs.

 

X user @ThisGood15 shared the leaked slides on the website where it is revealed that the handset could be known as the Realme Note 1. The slide compares the upcoming phone against competitors with Note phones of their own, namely Infinix and Redmi.

 

 

Assuming the leaked slide is accurate, the Realme Note 1 could come with a 6.67-inch FHD OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. It also uses the D7050 chipset, which presumably refers to the MediaTek Dimensity 7050. This suggests that it won't be a particularly high-end smartphone. Other specs include a triple camera setup with a 108MP main shooter accompanied by an 8MP and 2MP sensor.

 

The Realme Note 1 could also pack a 5,000mAh battery with support for 67W fast charging. The comparison of the Note 1 against the competitors doesn't suggest that the handset will stand out too much. It also does not mention if there will be stylus support, which was one of the Samsung Note's defining features.


Realme Officially Launches the GT5 Pro

 

Just a short while after announcing its 200 million shipment milestone, Realme finally announced the arrival of the GT5 Pro, which packs some pretty impressive hardware specifications, including the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 mobile chipset.

 

In terms of display, the GT5 Pro packs a 6.78-inch AMOLED display with a 144Hz refresh rate, and an impressive 4,500 nits of peak brightness. This is encased in a design that features a vegan leather back, which is available in three different colors.

Other features include Realme's custom Android user interface as well as air gestures, an integrated control feature.

 

For cameras, the GT5 Pro packs a 50MP main sensor, a 50MP periscope zoom sensor, and an 8MP ultrawide sensor. Meanwhile, selfies and video calls are handled by a 32MP main sensor.

Priced starting at around $477 when converted, the GT5 Pro is currently exclusive to Chinese markets, but we can expect Realme to announce global availability in the coming months.


Realme Celebrates Milestone with 200 Million Shipments

 

Realme's debut on the smartphone scene a few years ago yielded some of the most affordable but worthwhile Android smartphones, which managed to balance both specs and performance at wallet-friendly prices. With that in mind, the brand recently celebrated a major milestone after reaching a whopping 200 million unit shipments.

 

The landmark number was posted online by Realme CEO Sky Li on his official social media account. The post reads:

 

 

Realme originally arrived on the market as a sub-brand of Oppo, but has since grown to be its own brand, competing with the likes of Redmi and other budget-focused brands, although it has come out with some rather impressive devices in recent years such as the Realme GT5, which packs 24GB of RAM.

 

Other features of the GT5 include a variant that features 150W fast-charging speed, available in 12/256GB and 16/512GB storage configurations, although there's a much faster 240W fast-charging variant, which features 24GB of RAM and 1TB of internal storage, and a 4600 mAh battery.

 

With all that being said, the popularity of budget-friendly Android devices in Asian markets has no doubt helped boost Realme to the mainstream, and it's a bot of a shame that most Western markets aren't able to access the brand's impressive lineup of devices.


Realme takes on the iPhone 15 Pro, hints at a periscope zoom camera

 

"Not only Max can zoom", reads a recent social media post from Realme Global's account. They are certainly not talking about Mad Max, that's for sure. Realme is taking on the iPhone 15 Pro Max and in particular - its all-new periscope camera system.

 

Realme's social media post is accompanied by an abstract image of a water-like scenery for a background (via GSMArena). The main accent is the drawing of a multiple-camera system array on a smartphone. There are two "regular" circular lens holes, and the third one is rectangular, screaming unequivocally: "Periscope aboard!".

 

 

This is the main clue as to who (or what) Max from the "Not only Max can zoom" represents. Mind you, the periscope zoom lens on the iPhone 15 Pro Max features a circular front element lens, not a rectangular lens like the one teased in Realme's post. On a side note: the periscope camera scheme delivers solid zoom capabilities by using a prism (or angled mirror) that reflects and redirects the light to the side. The light travels through the adjacent lens element and finally hits the sensor, enlarging the image, thus making it "zoomed in".

 

That's not Realme's first time messing around with a periscope camera. In mid-2020, they launched the Realme X3 SuperZoom that packed a quad-sensor setup with a 64 MP main one, an 8 MP periscope zoom lens (with 5x optical zoom), one ultra-wide camera, and one dedicated for macro shots.

 

Back to the current periscope tease: there's absolutely no information about the device that's to allegedly house the exotic zoom system. Rumors have it that a periscope camera could be found on the Realme GT5 Pro, that's allegedly coming towards the end of 2023 and maybe - just maybe - could pack the yet-to-be-announced Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chip...
