Realme has now brought its performance-focused affordable premium phone, the Realme GT 5G, over to the global market. Europe, specifically. The Realme GT 5G offers a Snapdragon 888 and up to 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB while bearing a lithe €369 price tag for now.

Realme launched the Realme GT 5G a few months ago in China as its affordable performance-focused device positioned against the Redmi K40 Pro. The company has now brought the device over to the European market, and will be hoping to snag a portion of the market away from bitter rivals Xiaomi. 

The Realme GT 5G is a known quantity at this point. Features from the Chinese model carry over, with a 6.43-inch FHD+ 120 Hz Super AMOLED leading the way. Responsiveness should be exceptional due to the 360 Hz touch sampling rate. Under the hood is the class-leading Snapdragon 888, assisted by up to 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256 GB of UFS 3.1 storage. 

Camera-wise, the Realme GT sports a 64 MP Sony IMX682 as its main shooter, along with an 8 MP ultra-wide-angle shooter, and a 2 MP macro lens. At the front of the device, housed within a hole punch at the top left is a 16 MP selfie shooter. The Realme GT makes no pretense at being a camera-centric smartphone, but that hardware should suffice. 

Other specifications include a 4500 mAh battery, with 65 W SuperDart Charge. There's NFC support, dual-sim support, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. 

The Realme GT 5G carries an MSRP of €449 for the 8/128 GB model, while the 12/256 GB model will set buyers back €599. Early birds get hefty discounts, though, and will be able to snag the above SKUs at €369 and €499 respectively.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
