realme is currently the manufacturer that records the largest increases in users on the smartphone market. Will the models from the realme GT 2 series help to keep this trend?
Realme GT 2 and realme GT 2 Pro launch
There was a lot of unofficial information. We knew what models to expect and what they would most likely have to offer. It came as no surprise, the realme GT 2 and the more advanced realme GT 2 Pro saw the light of day. It was the latter that was awaited with greater hopes and the producer decided to focus on it during the presentation. Does it really deserve to be called a “premium product”?
realme GT 2 Pro was included in our list of the most anticipated smartphones of 2022. From the probe included in it, or rather its results, it can be concluded that many of you had high hopes for this construction. The design of both models is just like what realme is used to. It boasts of re-establishing its collaboration with industrial designer Naoto Fukasawa, portrays the case design as being paper-inspired, and uses a 0.1mm-thick laser engraving process.
Both smartphones will be available in four color variants – Paper White, Paper Green, Steel Black and Titanium Blue. The first two feature a housing with the above-mentioned design and ecological materials. The other two are more standard, the housings are covered with glass.

The realme GT 2 Pro is top of the line in several respects
No one should be lacking in performance here. realme GT 2 Pro is powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor made in a 4 nm technological process. And there is also RAM, because it is 8 GB in the standard and up to 12 GB in the more expensive version, and fast internal UFS 3.1 memory. The working temperatures are also supposed to be positive. realme GT 2 Pro is presented as a smartphone with the largest heat dissipation area in the industry (36761 mm²).
The display is also worthy of a flagship. realme GT 2 Pro boasts a flat panel AMOLED LTPO 2.0 with a high resolution of 1440 x 3216 pixels, a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a brightness of up to 1400 nits. There was also support for HDR10 +, and the whole thing translated into the prestigious rating of DisplayMate A +.
A bit more discussion may be about the camera. The main eye is a Sony IMX766, 50 Mpix matrix with optical image stabilization (OIS) and an Omni-directional PDAF module. Added to this was an ultra-wide 50 Mpix lens with a field of view of up to 150 ° and a micro-lens with a 40x zoom, by some referred to as microscopic.
It can be assumed that instead of the latter, some people would prefer a telephoto lens. On the other hand, photos with a 40x zoom can be an interesting experiment for some. Well, because look at the following sample of realme GT 2 Pro capabilities.

realme GT 2 less packed, but also efficient
In the case of realme GT 2, we can speak not only of a very similar style and quality of workmanship, but also of similar dimensions. A slightly smaller display was used here, although it is already a standard AMOLED with Full HD + resolution. It’s good that the refresh rate of 120 Hz was kept.
The performance will be slightly lower, although in everyday use it will be difficult to feel the difference. Due to the fact that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5G sitting inside the realme GT 2 is still at the forefront of systems that land on Android smartphones. At the same time, the manufacturer did not cut memory resources here. Like battery and charging technology. Unlike cameras, about which so far not even all details have been given.
