The posters shared by the brand on Weibo confirm that the smartphone will indeed come with the latest flagship chipset, the Snapdragon 888.

Realme executive Xu Qi Chase, who has been teasing the smartphone in the past, also posted on Weibo confirming the name of the device. Additionally, he mentions, “Pursue the ultimate and challenge 120 percent of yourself on the track you love”. While it may not mean anything but we can assume that the Realme GT may come with support for 120W fast charging. If that’s true, the Realme GT will take on the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra that also supports 120W fast charging, but has the previous-gen Snapdragon 865 SoC.

In related news, the noted tipster Digital Chat Station also revealed that the Realme GT will come with a new design. The handset will reportedly be offered in plain glass and leather variants.

In the camera department, the Realme GT is rumoured to come with a 64MP triple camera setup on the back. Lastly, the phone will have a 5,000mAh battery with support for 120W fast charging support.
