The GT Master Edition is rumored to launch as the world's first "Realme x Kodak" smartphone. It has also been slated to do so with the high-end Snapdragon 870 processor on board. However, the latest tips suggest the OEM has opted for a new mid-range 5G chipset in this device instead.

The Realme Master Editions are variations of existing smartphones on which their maker has collaborated with the designer Naoto Fukusawa for often significantly re-designed rear panels over the last few years. The GT flagship series is the one to get this treatment in 2021 - a rumor newly backed up by fresh renders generated by OnLeaks and published by 91Mobiles.

The new images purport to show that the latest Master Editions might be a little more subtle compared to those of yesteryear, with relatively basic takes on the basic GT/GT Neo chassis with new black or white options in what appears to be glass.

Then again, there is also a third "2021 Master Edition" SKU, finished in what is alleged to be pale gray patterned leather. Its new leak also suggest the phone will come with the same 6.43-inch 120Hz FHD+ AMOLED display, triple rear cameras and 3.5mm jack as the rest of the GT series.

The device was also supposed to keep step with its series in having a flagship or near-flagship SoC. However, the latest tips now point to a Snapdragon 778G SoC for the new "Master Edition" instead. This processor has been designed for premium mid-rangers, yet is quite new and might ensure the purported GT variant has few rivals, at least.
