Realme GT5: Specs and Features
The Realme GT5 is a gaming-focused smartphone, which has a ‘one-piece hot forged glass’ and four light strips at the back for light effects when a notification pops up. The strips surround the Snapdragon logo, which is placed inside a transparent glass. The phone looks pretty premium and can safely attract many.
Upfront, there’s a 6.74-inch 1.5K AMOLED display with a 144Hz refresh rate, 2160Hz PWM Dimming, 1.07 billion colors, up to 1400 nits of brightness, and a dedicated X7 chip, which is meant to provide high picture quality and ‘console-level’ frame rate.
Under the hood, there’s the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset paired with up to 24GB of RAM (much like the RedMagic 6s Pro and the OnePlus Ace 2 Pro) and up to 1TB of storage. There’s support for 240W fast charging with a 4,600mAh battery and a 5,240mAh battery option with slower 150W fast charging. The Realme GT5 runs Realme UI 4.0 based on Android 13.
As for the cameras, you get a 50MP main snapper with a Sony IMX890 sensor and OIS, an 8MP ultra-wide lens, and a 2MP macro camera, along with a 16MP selfie shooter. There are features like the portrait mode, long exposure, multi-view video, and more.
The GT 5.0 gaming mode supports a 2000Hz Gaming Control Engine, AI Frame Stabilization Technology 2.0, and more for interruption-free gaming. To keep things cool, especially during intensive gaming, there’s the 9-layer Ice Core Cooling System Max. You also get the cloud-accelerated e-sports network for improved network during gaming. Additional features include Tri-frequency GPS, universal infrared remote control, Omni-sensing Enhanced NFC, dual stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos, an in-display fingerprint scanner, and more.
