The new Realme GT 3 is scheduled for the global launch event on February 28. It will be a rebranded version of the Realme GT Neo 5 240W, which went official in China earlier this month. It turns out the Realme GT 3 will be released in China as well. However, the Chinese version of the Realme GT 3 will be a different version in comparison to the global version. Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) is allegedly working on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset for future Android flagship phones. However, it’s still early days to talk about it, and it might be ready to be utilized in the upcoming Realme phones this year.
Realme China President Xu Qi on Weibo confirms that the company is currently working on the Realme GT 3 for Chinese markets, with the next generation flagship chipset onboard. He also claimed the device will be released in China by the end of 2023.
As the manufacturer is planning to launch it by the end of this year, we may expect the Chinese Realme GT 3 may come packed with the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, which is expected to be launched in the final quarter of this year. Earlier this month, the SD 8 Gen 3 chipset was already spotted on Geekbench 5 platform, achieving a single-core score of 1930 and a multi-core score of 6236.
To recall, the global version of the Realme GT 3 features6.74″ OLED screen with 1.5K resolution with 144Hz refresh rate, 12/16 GB LPDDR5X RAM, up to 1 TB of UFS 3.1 storage, a 50MP Sony IMX890 primary camera sensor with OIS, and the highlight of the handset would be 240W ultra-fast charging speeds using a 4,600mAh battery unit.
Realme is also rumored to be working on a toned-down version of the Realme GT Neo 5 for the Chinese market, which could be branded as Realme GT Neo 5 SE for the global market, was spotted on AnTuTu benchmarks with a score of 1,029,731. This SE version is expected to be arrived with the upcoming Snapdragon 7 Plus Gen 1 chipset.
