Realme China president Xu Qi Chase posted on Weibo that there are currently more than 30 smartphone models with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, but he doesn’t believe any of them have “truly hit the performance limit.”
This comes in the context of the Realme GT5, which has long been surrounded by rumors that it will use an 8 Gen 2 chip. These rumors have been confirmed. Leicester Digital chat site Less obvious, he writes that the phone will pair the 8 Gen 2 with a whopping 24GB of RAM.
Currently, only one phone has that much (Red Magic 8S Pro+), but others are on the way. This will be LPDDR5X RAM with UFS 4.0 storage.
The Realme boss teased that the GT5 will be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2
The Realme GT5 is expected to have two versions similar to the recent GT Neo 5, meaning one with a 4,600mAh battery and bonkers 240W fast charging, and a more limited version with a 5,000mAh capacity and “only” 150W charging.
The “GT5” name has been officially confirmed and we’ve heard rumors of the GT5 Pro with a periscope zoom camera (with a 64MP OV64B sensor). That’s up from 50MP main (IMX9-series 1/1.4-inch sensor) and 8MP ultra-wide. The display is said to be a 6.74-inch 1.5K AMOLED panel with a 144Hz refresh rate (same as the GT3).
That’s all unofficial information, of course, Realme’s official teasers should start to reveal such details as we get closer to GT5’s launch later this month.
