The Realme GT 5G is coming on March 4 with a Snapdragon 888 SoC under the hood and will be priced below CNY2,999 ($465/€380). It will pack a Samsung-made 120Hz AMOLED screen with a fingerprint reader underneath for biometric authentication.
These latest revelations come from Realme VP Mr. Xu Qi Chase, who posted on Weibo saying that pricing the GT 5G under CNY2,999 was a difficult feat.
Mr. Chase also re-confirmed that GT 5G will come with LPDRR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage but didn’t reveal any specific numbers. However, we know the GT 5G will come with 12GB RAM and 256GB storage onboard, but this could be the top-end variant, and we believe there will be another model with less RAM and storage, which will be priced under CNY2,999.

With a price tag of CNY2,999, the Realme GT 5G could become the cheapest Snapdragon 888-powered smartphone at launch.
We don’t have the full specs sheet of the GT 5G yet, although official posters confirmed the smartphone will come in glass back and Bumblebee leather variants featuring 64MP triple camera setups on the rear panels, while 3C revealed the smartphone will support 65W charging.
