The GT Neo3 is currently being touted as the first ever Realme phone to launch with its latest 150W charging tech. However, the OEM has also now suggested that there might be a second variant with a slower, yet still new to 2022, 80W standard instead. Then again, fans of speed may still be happy with the phone's also-hyped "Le Mans" colorway.

A growing number of Android smartphones launch with rear panels finished in racing stripes, in a patent attempt to boost their speed-related credentials, these days. Now, Realme is said to get even more literal about this style trend with its upcoming Le Mans colorway.

This is the alleged name for the new purple-and-white look now being teased in conjunction with Realme's next upcoming premium mid-ranger. The OEM's latest posters also suggest the livery will also be available in new TWS earbuds, now confirmed to debut alongside their matching phone as the Buds Air3.

In a stark contrast to these new speed-happy teasers, Realme's CEO Xu Qi Chase has also now hinted that the GT Neo3 might be available in a variant with 80W charging, in addition to its well-hyped inaugural 150W version.

This Neo3 SKU may thus lack the newest, shiniest and quickest kinds of battery and charger the OEM can provide; nevertheless, it now seems it might come with advantages of its own, not the least of which is a chance at a 5,000mAh battery, whereas the 150W version is obliged to go with 4,500mAh instead.

Furthermore, this 'Standard Edition' is likely to turn out as the most affordable of its fellow GTs Neo3. It is now slated to launch along with the rest of its mini-series on March 22, 2022.
