Realme GT Neo: Dimensity 1200 SoC and March 31, 2021 launch confirmed
Realme has confirmed that the GT Neo - hinted at during the flagship GT's launch - will get its own show on March 31, 2021. The OEM has also revealed that it is to be the brand's first Dimensity 1200-powered device. This new MediaTek flagship is slated as an alternative, premium-mid-range alternative to the Qualcomm Snapdragon options typically found in this space.
The OEM has only teased the GT Neo in terms of its new platform; therefore, all we can say for sure is that it will have new ARM Cortex-A78 cores that might go up to 3.0GHz in one case, and will support 5G. A recent leak may offer further insight into the upcoming phone, however.
It comes in the form of a TENAA registration for a Realme RMX3116, suggesting that it is a future launch from the brand: either the GT Neo or also-rumored X9 Pro, in other words. Should it be the former, it may launch with an FHD+ display that exhibits potentially polarizing curves to its long edges.
The putative GT Neo may also ship with Realme UI based on Android 11 and a 4,400mAh battery. The RMX3116 also seems to have a camera hump very similar to that of the GT, which may mean it has triple rear shooters with resolutions of up to 64MP.
