Realme has now joined the exclusive club of OEMs offering a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1-powered phone with the new Realme GT2 Master Explorer Edition. The phone succeeds last year's Snapdragon 870-powered GT Master Explorer Edition and brings a host of improvements, including Pixelworks' X7 graphic chip.

At its launch event today in China, Realme debuted a handful of new mobile devices including the new Realme Buds Air 3 Neo, the RealmeBook Air, and most notably, the performance-focused Realme GT2 Master Explorer Edition.

The Realme GT2 Master Explorer Edition makes its debut as one of the few available Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 devices on the market after the launches of the Xiaomi 12S and Asus ROG Phone 6 series. The GT2 Master Explorer Edition sports a 6.7-inch FHD+ 120 Hz OLED made by BOE, and is equipped with up to 12 GB of LPDDR5X RAM and 256 GB of UFS 3.1 storage. This is actually the first Android device to offer LPDDR5X RAM.

Camera-wise, the premium phone features a 50 MP IMX766 with OIS as its main camera, added by a 50 MP ultra-wide-angle shooter, and a 2 MP lens. At the front sits a 16 MP selfie camera. The GT2 Master Explorer Edition incorporates Pixelworks's X7 visual processor as well, for improved gaming performance and display performance. You can read more about the X7 chip here
