Earlier this month, Realme unveiled the Realme GT 2 Pro in India and a bunch of other products. Curiously, the vanilla Realme GT 2 that went official in China was absent on the April 7’s event. We started to believe that Realme wouldn’t unleash the vanilla smartphone in the Indian market. However, the device was just slightly “delayed“. Today, Realme is disclosing the vanilla Realme GT 2 which is more affordable but brings last year’s Snapdragon 888 SoC. Anyway, it’s still a better offering when compared to the last year’s Realme GT 5G.
Realme GT 2 specifications
The Realme GT 2 flaunts a 6.62-inch Samsung E4 AMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution and 100 percent DCI-P3 color gamut. The panel also offers 10240-level brightness adjustment. Furthermore, there is a 120 Hz refresh rate and a 1000 Hz intelligent instantaneous touch sampling rate.
Under the hood, the phone carries the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC and has up to 12 GB of RAM. The phone has an X-axis linear vibration motor and a 4D vibration engine.

The Realme GT 2 runs Android 12 with Realme UI 3.0. According to Realme, the phone will receive three Android upgrades. So it will receive Android 13, Android 14, and even Android 15. However, given the company’s track record, don’t expect updates to come shortly after Google releases. Anyway, the phone will also receive up to four years of security patch updates.
