Realme GT Neo 3T First Look

Realme’s newest flagship isn’t out yet, but we got our hands on it. Here are our first impressions.

Realme is gearing up to launch its next-generation of flagship smartphone pretty soon. Dubbed as Realme GT Neo 3T, the upcoming smartphone is expected to launch on June 7th, making it one of the most anticipated devices from the brand. Realme has always been known to follow its ‘Dare to Leap’ philosophy religiously regarding its smartphone lineup. As a result, we have seen some great Realme smartphones in the past that have brought state-of-the-art design and flagship-grade specifications at an affordable price tag.

Adding to this long list is the Realme GT Neo 3T. Although the launch is around the corner, we were able to experience the device during our exclusive visit to the recently-unveiled Realme global flagship store in Ahmedabad. The Realme store offers all the product lineup from the brand uniquely, making it one of the best-designed stores in Ahmedabad city. So, coming back to the Realme GT Neo 3T, we got a chance to play with the device for a short time to experience its in-hand feel and design aesthetics. Here’s what you need to know about the upcoming flagship beauty from Realme.

Realme GT Neo 3T: Sleek Profile, Quirky Design

Realme GT is known for bringing out design aesthetics to the table. We have seen the Realme GT 2 series that brings Paper Tech Master Design, an ISCC-certified biopolymer finish to its rear panel. The Realme GT Neo 3, on the other hand, offers a sporty look with its racing stripes like the design on the back panel. However, the upcoming Realme GT Neo 3T is ready to take a notch ahead with its premium design language.

The aluminium frame provides the proper grip, and the in-hand feel is also excellent. The back panel of the device comes with a square-like texture finish, which shines beautifully when the light falls on it. The phone is available in two colour options: Yellow and White. The Yellow colour is typically eye-catching with its vibrant colour palette and those shiny small cubes.

The White colour option looks subtle and is meant for those who don’t like flashy colours. The White colour also bears the same cube-like design on the panel, which shines in broad daylight. Realme is known for making some eye-catching designs and the back panel on the Realme GT Neo 3T goes with the same philosophy. The quirky design does look great, and it is not that flashy.

The camera module is encased at the top-left corner under a glass panel, adding a premium look. The module comes with three cameras, and two LED flashes. The bottom of the rear panel bears Realme branding, which looks subtle.

Coming to the side profile, the volume rockers are on the left side, while the power button is located on the right side – typical of Realme smartphones. The buttons can be reached easily with your hands, and you get good feedback when you press them.

The bottom panel of the device comes with a USB Type-C port, which is sandwiched between a SIM slot and a speaker grille. The front panel has a bezel-less display and offers a small punch-hole cutout at the top-left corner.

Realme GT Neo 3T: Initial Impressions

Since the pricing of the Realme GT Neo 3T isn’t available as yet, it will probably be a mid-range smartphone that will provide some value-for-money proposition to consumers. Realme has done an excellent job by introducing a unique yet stylish finish, which will stand out from the crowd when it comes to the market. The in-hand feel is solid, and the device feels lightweight as well. That said, it would be interesting to see when the phone will be available for the Indian market so that we can dig deeper into the performance and other aspects of the phone. Till then, here’s a quick recap of what all have been leaked about the Realme GT Neo 3T.

The device may come with a 120Hz screen refresh rate along with a better touch sampling rate. The phone may get its power from the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 processor, which may help it to compete with the likes of Iqoo Neo 6, OnePlus Nord 2, and more. Another interesting feature that may be included in the Neo 3T could be a whopping 150W fast charging support. In addition, the phone may come with a 5,000mAh battery.

For optics, the Realme GT Neo 3T will feature a triple-camera setup. The phone might come with a 64MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 2MP macro sensor.
