Less than 24 hours ago, Realme took the wraps off its latest flagship smartphone, the GT, at an event in China. At the end of the event, Realme VP Xu Qi also teased an additional member of the new GT family, which is supposedly coming soon.
We’re talking about the Realme GT Neo, and this one will have MediaTek’s Dimensity 1200 chipset at the helm, unlike the GT which uses Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888. That’s all we know about it so far, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see various leaks and rumors regarding the GT Neo in the coming days and weeks.
The Dimensity 1200 was announced back in January, and is MediaTek’s flagship chipset. It’s fabbed on a 6nm process, and its CPU has a 1+3+4 octa-core configuration, with one 3 GHz Cortex-A78, three 2.6 GHz Cortex-A78 cores, and four 2 GHz Cortex-A55 cores. This configuration makes it 22% above the Dimensity 1000+, its predecessor, in performance. The GPU seems to be the same from the Dimensity 1000+, a Mali-G77MC9. The SoC supports up to 168 Hz display refresh rate, and camera sensors up to 200 MP.
According to MediaTek’s information from the launch, Realme should out a device using this platform in late March or early April – and we’re guessing the handset in question is none other than the GT Neo.
