Realme GT 5G launched Key specs and other key details

Realme has just introduced their flagship device called Realme GT 5G. The device is packed with top of the line specs including the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC. The phone is not exactly as in it was earlier launched in China in March and was on sale there. But now it has seen the global launch, which means it is supposed to reach markets in other countries, including in India soon.

Given that it is already on sale, we do know a lot about the Realme GT 5G.

The Realme GT 5G features a 6.43 inch AMOLED display with 120Hz high refresh rate, Snapdragon 888 SoC paired with 12GB RAM, 64-megapixel triple rear cameras and support for 65W fast charging.

The base variant of Realme GT 5G with 8GB RAM and 128GB is priced at EUR 449 (Rs 39,900 roughly). This is the global price. However, the same model in China goes for CNY 2,799 (Rs. 32,100 roughly). Realme GT 5G’s availability and pricing in India is currently unknown. But we expect it to have a price closer to the China price. But more on the India price of the Realme GT 5G in a while. Before that a quick look at the phone.

Realme GT 5G India Price and Availability

The Realme GT 5G is a high end offering from Realme. It is made available in Dashing Blue, Dashing Silver, and Racing Yellow (vegan leather) colour options.

As far as the pricing of the smartphone is concerned, the base variant with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage goes for EUR 449 (Rs. 39,900 roughly) whereas the top variant with 12GB of RAM and 256GB storage will be sold for EUR 599 (Rs. 53,200).

As mentioned before the smartphone was first available in China. So we compared the European and Chinese pricing and found them to be starkly different. In China, the base variant of the Realme GT 5G is priced at CNY 2,799 (Rs. 32,100 roughly) whereas the top model goes for CNY 3,299 (Rs. 37,800 roughly).

As an introductory offer, the Realme GT 5G will get early bird discounts between June 2125 in the global markets. With this offer available, users can pick the base variant of the device for EUR 369 (Rs 32,800) and the top variant for EUR 499 (Rs. 44,300).

Realme has not yet talked about the availability and India pricing of this device. However, we are guessing the brand will make an announcement in the coming weeks and in July the Realme GT 5G may see India launch.

As far as the Indian pricing is concerned, the Realme GT 5G will be much cheaper than the European variants. We expect the price of the Realme GT 5G in India to be closer to the price of the phone in China, which means it is likely to cost around Rs 32,000. In fact, it is almost certain that it will cost under Rs 35,000 in India in its base variant and hence is likely to be one of the most affordable Snapdragon 888 phones in India. At the same time, if the price is not aggressive in India — say the Realme GT 5G launches at a price of around Rs 40,000 that is closer to the European pricing — it is possible that Realme will offer some early buyer discounts on it.
