Realme is reportedly currently preparing to launch its newest smartphone in 2023. The new smartphone is the realme GT Neo 5 which will use 240W charging technology. Although it has not been confirmed for certain, Realme has announced plans to introduce this charging technology in China on January 5, 2023. The post that appeared on the Weibo platform revealed the SoC and camera module that will be used.
According to poster images circulating on the internet, the realme GT Neo 5 will use the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset. Meanwhile, in terms of photography and videography, this smartphone will be equipped with the main camera, namely the Sony IMX890 sensor which also supports OIS.
It seems that this smartphone will also embed fast charging technology, as reported by GSM Arena. The current Realme smartphone that supports fast charging technology is the realme GT Neo 3 with 150W fast charging and a 4,500 mAh battery. It seems that Realme will still follow the same strategy as the GT Neo 5. This affordable flagship smartphone may come in two variants, namely 240W with a 4,600 mAh battery and 150W with a 5,000 mAh battery.
