Realme has confirmed that it will launch a new phone with a 240W charging station at Mobile World Congress on February 28th. While the phone itself hasn’t been confirmed, it’s expected to be the Realme GT 3.
Realme has already launched the GT Neo 5 in China and there is growing suspicion that the phone will be rebranded as the GT 3 when it goes on sale internationally.
There was already confirmation that the GT 3 would be announced “this month” when Realme released a promo of the phone in early February. The sales packaging has already appeared. Now, Realme Vice President Madhav Sheth tweeted, confirming that the company will “unveil 240W – the world’s fastest charging technology on February 28th at #MWC23.”
MySmartPrice is among those expecting the Realme GT 3 to be a rebadge of the GT 5 Neo, the other phone that currently offers the same 240W fast charging feature that Sheth mentioned in his tweet. If that’s indeed the case, then we can start making some guesses as to what the phone will have to offer.
If Realme follows its own playbook, we should see the phone use a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip along with up to 16GB of RAM depending on the model chosen. There is also a possibility that the storage options will go up to 1TB.
The display is a 6.7-inch AMOLED display with an adaptive refresh rate of up to 144 Hz and a resolution of 1.5K.
A 50-megapixel main camera is complemented by an 8-megapixel ultrawide and a 2-megapixel macro camera. On the front, a 16-megapixel camera will take care of selfie shots.
The 240W fast charge will likely be paired with a 4,600mAh battery, while there could also be a 150W version with a larger 5,000mAh battery if that really follows what Realme has done with the GT Neo made 5.
Pricing is of course a secret at the moment, but with an announcement now just a few weeks away we won’t be waiting long to find out.
