Realme’s teased smartphone with 240W fast charging is getting an international release

Realme GT3, the new phone that will make me ask myself if phones can charge Same to you quickly, it was officially announced today at MWC Barcelona. It supports 240W SuperVOOC charging, which Realme says can fully charge the 4,600mAh battery in just nine and a half minutes.

The Realme GT3 will be available in select markets starting at $649 for the version with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. It will be available for purchase in the international markets in May and June of this year, Realme’s vice president of global business Chase Xu confirmed in the Q&A session after the event.

Well, I said “announced,” but in fact, the phone has been in China for two weeks now as the Realme GT Neo 5. Realme is a smartphone manufacturer that sits under the umbrella of BBK Electronics along with OnePlus and Oppo, and the latter unexpectedly announced a 240W charging technology at last year’s MWC.

Full charge in nine and a half minutes

If 240W fast charging sounds fast, that’s because it is. Realme says it represents “the highest possible charging speed for Type-C” (which makes sense given the new charging standards from the USB Implementers Forum). It is faster than the 210W capable Redmi Note 12 Discovery Edition and the 150W charger found in OnePlus devices like the 10T. But he probably won’t stay on top for long. Xiaomi’s Redmi brand is working hard to beat Realme’s 240W fast charging, if the new 300W fast charging proof of concept that was just announced is anything to go by.

Although 240W is a very high number, the phone’s fast charging speed is not a faster rate than we have seen with fast charging phones in the past. Realme says the GT3 can charge to 100 percent in nine and a half minutes, but remember that the Redmi Note 12 Discovery Edition already charges its 4,300mAh battery to 100 percent in about nine minutes with a 210W fast charger. And even the OnePlus 10T’s 150W fast charger can get the 4,800mAh battery to 100 percent in less than 20 minutes.

The phone has lights on its back that can illuminate in 25 different colors.

But the most compelling thing is what a quick burst of charging can achieve. Realme advertises that a 30-second charge of the GT3, for example, is enough for two hours of calls, three hours of listening to music, or 40 minutes of video streaming. If your phone has ever nearly died on an important work call, then you’ll know the value of being able to power it up quickly.

Although the 240W fast charging can bring heat stress levels to a minimum, Realme claims that the GT3’s battery should still hold 80 percent of its maximum capacity after 1,600 charge cycles. This is the same as what Oppo claims the 150W SuperVOOC charger is capable of and over the 1,000 charge cycles that the EU wants to mandate that devices provide at least. Realme says that various measures have been taken to protect the device’s battery by, for example, technically limiting its charge rate to 80 percent when the device is charged overnight or its 100W charging circuit. three to reduce pain.

Apart from its charging technology, Realme GT3 also has a small RGB light on its back. It’s called “Interface Pulse” and it can light up in different colors to, for example, show a low charge, notify you about an incoming call, or act as a timer for a camera shot.

Elsewhere, if the GT Neo 5 is anything to go by, the GT3 could be the most powerful Android smartphone ever. The GT Neo 5 is powered by a Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor and has a 6.74-inch 144Hz 1240p display. There are three rear cameras: a 50-megapixel main camera, an eight-megapixel camera, and a two-megapixel macro camera. And in China at least, you need to choose a phone model with 16GB of RAM and 256GB of storage to get 240W fast charging; otherwise, you “only” get 150W fast charging.
