Starting with the design, GT Neo 2 comes with a design similar to its predecessor. However, the camera module at the back, unlike the first-gen Realme GT Neo, appears to have the same color as the back panel.

The device boasts a 6.6-inch Full HD+ Samsung E4 AMOLED panel with support for a 120Hz refresh rate and a whopping 600Hz touch sampling rate. It has a peak brightness of 1,300 nits and a punch-hole cutout to house the 16MP selfie snapper. As for the cameras on the back, Realme GT Neo 2 packs a triple-camera module at the back. This includes a primary 64MP sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide lens with a 119-degree FOV, and a 2MP macro shooter.
