Realme has officially unveiled its flagship smartphone in India. The Realme GT 2 Pro debuts as the company’s first flagship smartphone of 2022.

The Realme GT 2 Pro’s price in India starts from Rs 49,999, although the phone will be available for an introductory price of Rs 44,999.  

And while the GT 2 Pro debuts as the most expensive phone in the company’s portfolio, it does launch as the most affordable Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 powered smartphone in the country. 

When it comes to the design of the Realme GT 2 Pro, there’s little to complain about. The Realme GT 2 Pro comes in Paper White, Paper Green, and Steel Black colour options.  

The Paper White and Green models are made from a bio-based polymer. The material is ISCC-certified to create 35.5 percent less carbon emissions during the manufacturing process.  

The phone was also quite resistant to fingerprint smudges and is quite comfortable to grip. However, it isn’t all rosy, the new design does have its flaws.  

The Realme GT 2 Pro has its volume buttons on the left and power buttons on the right. There is a speaker grille, USB Type-C port, and SIM tray on the bottom.  

Lastly, the Realme GT 2 Pro is also missing the IP68 rating, another letdown considering the phone is being touted as a flagship.  

The handset sports a 6.7-inch 2K WQHD+ AMOLED panel that uses LTPO 2.0 technology. The technology enables an adaptive refresh rate of 1Hz to 120Hz to save up to “50 percent energy”.  

The GT 2 Pro’s display is also protected by Gorilla Glass Victus. It also gets pretty bright under direct sunlight, achieving a maximum brightness of 1400 nits.  

The GT 2 Pro’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC is paired with up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage.  The phone is powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset.

For optics, the Realme GT 2 Pro uses a 50 MP Sony IMX 766 sensor with OIS, a 50 MP Samsung ISOCELL JN1 ultra-wide shooter with a 150-degree FoV, and a 3 MP Ultra-micro lens with 40x magnification.  

There’s also a 32 MP selfie camera with an f/2.4 aperture upfront. The Realme GT 2 Pro comes with a 5,000 mAh battery. For more exciting updates...
