Realme GT 2 Explorer Master Edition will be among the first smartphones to include a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC, Launching on July 12.
The Chinese manufacturer announced on Monday that the Realme GT 2 Explorer Master Edition will be launching on July 12. The new Realme phone, known in China as the Realme GT 2 Master Explorer Edition, will be the company’s first phone to have the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC, which Qualcomm unveiled in May as an update to the previous Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. The Realme GT 2 Explorer Master Edition is said to have a 120Hz AMOLED display, triple back cameras, and 100W fast charging.
In a post on Weibo on Monday, Realme revealed that the debut of the Realme GT 2 Explorer Master Edition will occur on July 12 at 2 pm CST Asia (11:30 am IST). The smartphone will be the replacement for the Realme GT Explorer Master Edition, which debuted in July of last year.
Realme Founder and CEO Sky Li confirmed in May, just after Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC debut, that the Realme GT 2 Explorer Master Edition will be one of the first smartphones to have the new flagship chipset. Realme Vice President Chase Xu recently teased the new phone’s introduction on Weibo by showing off its retail packaging. The executive also confirmed the company’s July debut date.
Specifications for the Realme GT 2 Explorer Master Edition (expected)
The Realme GT 2 Explorer Master Edition, with the model number RMX3551 and specs also with a 6.7-inch UHD+ (1,080×2,412 pixels) AMOLED display and up to 12GB of RAM, allegedly emerged on China’s TENAA certification website. According to the TENAA filing, the future phone might have up to 512GB of internal storage. The Realme GT 2 Explorer Edition appears to be identical in appearance to the Realme GT Neo 3 that was released in India in April.
Realme is anticipated to feature a triple-back camera configuration with two 50-megapixel sensors and one 2-megapixel sensor on the GT 2 Explorer Master Edition. The phone also has a 16-megapixel selfie camera sensor.
In addition to the TENAA listing, the Realme GT 2 Explorer Master Edition supposedly appeared on the Compulsory Certification of China (3C or CCC) website with support for 100W fast charging. The identical RMX3551 model number was also available on the 3C website.
Realme announced last week that it has sold over 2,000,000 GT Master Edition devices worldwide. The original Realme GT Explorer Master Edition, on the other hand, did not make its debut in India.
