Realme is likely not a company that you would associate with having a flagship smartphone, but that trend is being bucked thanks to the Realme GT. The phone launched in the company’s homeland of China already, but Realme teased a global launch would be coming. Today’s the day, as the Realme GT is going to be made available in a total of four new countries including Spain, Poland, Thailand, and Russia.
So what does the Realme GT have to offer other than a stellar sub-€400 price point? The phone is equipped with the Snapdragon 888 chipset, the same one powering many of the year’s flagship phones so far. This has been combined with either 8GB or 12GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage. There’s a 6.43-inch OLED display panel packed with a 120Hz refresh rate, and even a 4,500mAh battery. But the battery gets another boost thanks to the included 65W charging brick that Realme claims will take your phone from 0-100% in 35 minutes.
Not only is the Realme GT one of the phones capable of participating in the Android 12 beta program, but it also features a rather solid triple camera array. There’s a 64MP primary lens that will handle the majority of the load, while an 8MP ultrawide and 2MP macro camera are also at your disposal.
Starting on June 21st, you can order the 8GB/128GB variant of the Realme GT from AliExpress for €369 (about $450), but this is limited-time pricing that will jump up to €449 starting on June 26th. As for the 12GB/256GB version, Realme is also running a promotion from the 21st to the 25th, allowing you to snag the higher-end model for €599 (about $726). And considering that Prime Day 2021 is right around the corner, Realme has already confirmed the 12GB model will be priced at just €499 on Prime Day.
Realme claims that it has plans to bring the GT to even more markets, but the company did not share when those countries would be revealed, nor did they share what regions are included. Nevertheless, you only have a few days left before it’s time to try and grab one of the more value-conscious flagship devices of the year.
