Realme GT is all set to go official on March 4 and reports suggest it will be running on Android 11 based Realme UI 2.0 out of the box. Realme earlier teased some of the highlights of its 2021 flagship including Snapdragon 888, 5G connectivity, Adreno 660 GPU, WiFi 6E, 64MP triple camera setup, and two colors – leatherette yellow and metallic grey. Realme itself revealed software information on a Chinese micro-blogging site.
This isn’t the first time we will be witnessing Realme UI 2.0. In fact back in September 2020, the Realme UI 2.0 was announced with new customized options, improved dark mode, enhanced privacy, and an always-on display feature to name a few. Realme GT will be the first mobile to come with Realme UI 2.0 out of the box whereas Realme X50 Pro (review) was the first one to receive it as a software update.
Realme GT is the part of company’s dual flagship strategy where the brand will two flagship smartphones every year with one focusing on performance and the other one on camera. With Snapdragon Snapdragon 888 SoC at the heart of it, the Realme GT seems to be gunning for a performance flagship title.
As of now, Realme GT is scheduled to launch in China only but we expect the phone to arrive in India sooner rather than later. We expect Realme GT India launch will follow the Realme 8 series which is anticipated to debut later this month.
