Realme, earlier this year, announced that it will enter the ultra-premium smartphone category by launching a device above $800. The company is expected to unveil this device next year. It looks like Realme could soon enter another new category in 2022. The company could launch its first foldable smartphone next year. Realme has already teased the launch of foldable smartphones and an under-display front camera in the devices. Ahead of the launch, the design sketches of the supposed Realme GT 2 Fold have leaked. Let’s take a look at the upcoming Realme GT 2 Fold design, features, and other details leaked.
Realme GT 2 Fold design
Realme has not confirmed the launch timeline of its first foldable smartphone. While we wait for that, the design of the GT 2 Fold has leaked. The leaked design sketches (via 91Mobiles) of Realme’s first foldable smartphone reveal that the folding mechanism could be similar to the Galaxy Z Fold 3.
As per the sketches, the GT 2 Fold will have an 8-inch foldable screen. It will have a hole-punch cutout at the top right corner of the AMOLED display. There is no word on the refresh rate support. However, we can expect Realme’s foldable smartphone to feature at least a 120Hz refresh rate.
On the outside, there is a tall 6.5-inch AMOLED display. This one too has a hole-punch cutout at the top right corner. Realme might play it safe and not launch the GT 2 Fold with an under-screen camera considering it is the company’s first foldable. In addition to this, under-screen camera tech is still evolving and doesn’t offer high-quality imaging.
The device’s rear camera unit will house a dual-camera setup. It will have two 50MP camera sensors, which are likely for shooting wide and ultrawide images. The device is also likely to have a side-mounted fingerprint scanner and a USB Type-C port. Other details of the device remain under the wraps. We will share more details as and when available.
