Last week, the Realme GT 2 Pro 5G was also listed on the AnTuTu benchmark and became one of the first phones to score over one million points on the benchmark platform. The processor will be paired with up to 12GB LPDDR5 memory and up to 256GB UFS 3.1 flash memory. For imaging, the phone was rumored to use 108MP main lens; however, a new leak suggested it could feature a 50MP sensor.

The main lens will be assisted by an 8MP ultra-wide sensor and a 5MP shooter. The camera features will also include OIS technology and 4-in-1 pixel binning technology, autofocus, and EIS support.

Upfront, the phone is said to come with a 6.51-inch FHD+ AMOLED screen and a punch-hole cutout to house the 32MP front-facing sensor. As of now, there is no hint regarding the refresh rate of the upcoming Realme GT 2 Pro 5G. Other features might include Realme UI 3.0 based Android 12, a 5,000 mAh battery unit with 125W fast charging, Wi-Fi 6, and Bluetooth 5.2 for connectivity.


Realme GT 2 Pro Expected Price And Competition

Apart from the Realme GT 2 Pro, other brands like Xiaomi and OnePlus are also gearing up for the launch of their flagship devices in 2022. Both the OnePlus 10 Pro and the Xiaomi 12 are said to feature the Snapdragon 8 Gen1 chip.

Now, it remains to be seen whether Realme could beat other brands. The flagship device from OnePlus usually costs a bit higher, while the Realme GT 2 Pro is said to carry a starting price of CNY 4,000 (roughly Rs. 46,500), making it an affordable flagship device.

This is not the first time, the Realme GT 5G is the cheapest SD888-powered phone in India. However, it will be better to take the pricing of the GT 2 Pro with a pinch of salt until the brand confirms anything.
