Realme has confirmed a presentation date for its new Realme GT Neo 5. The device will show up on February 9 with its new (hyper) fast 240 W recharge.
Launched as the summer of 2022 approaches in our latitudes, the Realme GT Neo 3 will have a replacement very soon, at least in Asia. As reported by the Iberian site Xataka Android, Realme has indeed formalized a presentation date for its new GT Neo 5. The device will be unveiled in China on February 9 at 7 a.m. in France (2 p.m. local time). Realme’s announcement is also accompanied by confirmation that this new smartphone will be the first on the market to be equipped with 240 W fast charging.
As a reminder, this recharge is based on the SuperVooc technology, developed by Oppo (parent company of Realme)… and which theoretically makes it possible to refuel a battery of around 4500 mAh in just 9 minutes on mains.
Realme GT Neo 5: what to expect?
If the exact technical sheet of this new Realme GT Neo 5 is not yet specified, we still learn a little more about this fast charge. Realme explains for example that it will rely, among other things, on a custom cable (in order to support 12 amps), but also on a double GaN charger (to offer maximum compactness), and on a security and cooling system rather complex.
For the rest, we should find a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor coupled with a maximum of 16 GB of RAM, and up to 1 TB of storage. According to slightly older leaks, the device would be available in two versions: the first would be limited to 150 W of fast charging, but equipped with a 5000 mAh battery. While the second would benefit from the full 240 W, but with a capacity of 4600 mAh “only” in terms of battery.
The device would finally be equipped with a 144 Hz AMOLED panel and a diagonal of 6.7 inches, and would carry three rear photo sensors, including a main module of 50 Mpx. The set would also come with Android 13. More details to come in just over a week.
