Realme has already confirmed that the GT Neo2 is a smartphone that will launch later in 2021. Now, the OEM has elected to hype its upcoming device further with hints as to its display and its main attributes. It has also now showcased the new colorway it has developed for the phone, racing stripe and all.

Realme now officially has a second-gen GT Neo ready to go - which, as the OEM only just introduced its first generation, not to mention the GT series as a whole in the same year, is moving as fast as this latest variant's two-tone colorway might be intended to suggest.

The BBK Electronics-owned brand has indeed confirmed that it will come in the distinctive black and green combination hinted at in an earlier trailer. This finish, to be called Chocolate Lime Black Mint, is applied to a rear panel with a camera hump that looks much like that of the OnePlus 9, albeit one with the lenses re-arranged.

On the (literal) flip side, Realme has also let it be known that the Neo2 will, much like its predecessor, benefit from an E4 AMOLED display with a variable 30-120Hz refresh rate, a 600Hz touch-sampling rate and up to 10,240 local dimming zones. Therefore, it seems the phone will launch with a cutting-edge screen - or one that would be, rather, were it not for the new, state-of-the-art E5 technology now out there in the form of iQOO's latest flagship.

Nevertheless, the GT Neo2 still stands to offer an enjoyable gaming and content-consumption experience. Finally, the eminent tipster Digital Chat Station has posted hints at what, oddly enough, seems to be a new version of the original Neo, but with this new Black Mint rear panel, to launch alongside the newer model on September 22, 2021 as its "alternative" variant.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
