The GT Neo 2 is Realme's newest flagship phone, which is now available in India. It's similar to the amazing Realme GT that arrived in Europe a few months ago - better in some areas, but weaker in others. At the same event, Realme unveiled a 4K Smart TV Google Stick, Bluetooth Speaker, and gaming accessories.

In terms of specifications, the new Realme GT Neo 2 has a 6.62-inch E4 display with Full-HD+ resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, and 1,300 nits of peak brightness, which is greater than the previous model. HDR10+ content, DC dimming, and a touch sampling rate of 600Hz are also supported. The new vapor cooling system on the GT Neo 2 is 30 percent larger and 20% more efficient, according to Realme, and it uses stainless steel and copper. The battery is also larger than the GT's, at 5,000mAh (up from 4,500mAh), and the GT Neo 2 retains Realme's 65W SuperDart rapid charging technology. According to Realme, charging from 0 to 100% will take 36 minutes. Although 5G networks have yet to be implemented in India, the phone does have 5G connectivity.

The GT Neo 2 is powered by an 870 SoC with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, as compared to the GT's Snapdragon 888 chipset. This is essentially a faster version of Qualcomm's 865 Plus, which was already a faster version of last year's flagship chip — the primary core now runs at 3.2GHz. Realme has also added a dynamic RAM expansion option of up to 7GB to facilitate multitasking by increasing RAM capacity by utilizing internal storage.

A 64-megapixel main sensor, an 8-megapixel ultrawide camera, and a 2-megapixel macro lens are included in the triple camera system, just like the GT. Realme is promoting the GT Neo 2's Street Photography mode, which is said to improve shutter speed and focus performance while also incorporating film emulation filters.

In India, the Realme GT Neo 2 will be available later this week. A variant with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage costs Rs. 31,999 ($425), while a 12GB/256GB version costs Rs. 35,999 ($475).
