Realme had hinted at a GT2 series event set for today (December 20, 2021). However, the OEM has not unveiled the flagship smartphones in question as it has confirmed the nature of its 3 industry-first "innovations". This presentation involved more detail on the devices' new build material, ultra-wide cameras and comms array.

Realme had promised a "GT2 series" event today (December 20, 2021). As it turns out, this fixture served not to confirm the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1-powered phones' rumored design or pricing, but to discuss their 3 "world's first" hardware properties.

They include the innovative "bio-based" material that Realme had hinted it would be using in place of glass or plastic in the GT2 Pro and possibly GT2. The OEM has now confirmed that this compound will be "a biopolymer" sourced by the company SABIC. 

Realme artfully skirted around the actual appearance, not to mention finish or texture, to result from the use of this material, save to hint at a "Paper Tech Master Design" provided by the designer Naoto Fukasawa. However this novel chassis turns out, the OEM has also now confirmed that it will incorporate a ground-breaking 150° ultra-wide rear camera.

This shooter will exceed the GT2 Pro's main shooter by 278% in terms of field of view. The new spec will also confer mobile photography's first fish-eye effect mode, thanks to its enhanced depth of field. Finally, Realme's promised communication-related innovation comprises an "Antenna Array Matrix System".

This apparently consists of "Ultra Wide Band HyperSmart Antenna Switching", based on 12 "wrap-around" antennae to ensure full-phone coverage. They apparently ensure "stable" 5G connectivity. Meanwhile, Realme's new "Wi-Fi Enhancer" is a system of symmetrical Wi-Fi antennae is rated to raise the GT2 Pro's Wi-Fi stability by up to 20% compared to conventional unbalanced designs.

Finally, Realme claims that the GT2 series will launch with "360°" NFC for stronger performance in this area. Despite all this, the new flagship phone and its purported vanilla counterpart are no closer to a formal release at this point.
