Update | Realme hypes the GT Neo3 as a "high-frame-rate" phone on announcing its launch
Update: Realme has now revealed that the display to be the focus of this dual-chip solution will have a 120Hz refresh rate and a 1,000Hz touch-sampling rate. As for the GT Neo3's power upgrades, the OEM has also now teased its 150W version's dual-cell battery, as well as the fact that it is apparently rated to retain 80% of its initial capacity after 1,600 charging cycles.
Original Article: 2022 seems to be the year of the co-processor smartphone in earnest, as OPPO has now followed Xiaomi in the release of its in-house, purpose-built MariSilicon X, which supports or augments its Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor from Qualcomm in the Find X5 Pro.
Now, Realme claims to have done something along the same lines with its GT Neo3. This upcoming smartphone is now also touted as having a "dual-chip" solution. Then again, in this case, it seems the second chipset is mostly there to help the Neo2 successor's recently-launched MediaTek processor drive its display.
This might seem a little redundant given the rated specs of the Neo3's 'primary' SoC, the Dimensity 8100. Then again, according to the leaker WHYLAB, it confers a form of MEMC frame extrapolation or "insertion" that may ensure the GT Neo3 gets 120fps in games such as Peace Elite, or 90fps in other titles such as Genshin Impact.
This function of Realme's new "independent display chip" can apparently be observed using high-speed photography. Perhaps some of this footage will be on show during the GT Neo3's product event, now set for March 22, 2022.
