Realme, as a smartphone manufacturer, has grown immensely in the past few years. With their “Dare to leap” tagline and affordable smartphones mantra, the BBK-owned company has expanded to over 61 countries worldwide.
Last month, the company launched the Realme GT globally, a smartphone with flagship-level features which also marked the end of the X series of flagship devices (X7 Max 5G being the last device). The Realme GT and the mid-range version GT Master Edition have finally launched in India, and here’s everything you need to know about them.

The other specs are similar to the GT.
The phone will receive two major Android updates. The Master Edition starts at Rs 25,999, Rs 27,999, and Rs 29,999 for the 6/128GB, 8/128GB, and 8/256GB respectively. and will go on sale in India from 25th August.

The Realme GT is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC. The device sports an FHD+ 6.43-inch Super AMOLED, punch-hole display capped at 120Hz refresh rate and a screen-to-body ratio of 91.7%.
The cameras have three at the back–a wide-angle 64MP Sony IMX682 sensor primary sensor, an 8MP Ultra Wide-angle snapper with a field of view of 119°, and a 2MP macro lens. On the front, there’s a 16MP wide-angle selfie camera.
The battery is rated at 4400 mAh and supports fast charging (SuperDart) of up to 65W via USB Type-C. When it comes to the ports, the phone doesn’t skip the headphone jack.
Apart from that, the company claims that the Stainless Steel Vapour Cooling system should help reduce the temperature by 15℃. The phone comes in two variants, 8/128GB and 12/256GB, LPDDR5 memory and UFS 3.1 memory, and three colors – Racing Yellow, Dashing Blue, and Dashing Silver.

Will the Realme GT Explorer Master Edition Launch in India?
We don’t have any official confirmation from Realme regarding this, but considering that the official Realme India social media handles have been teasing only GT and GT Masters Edition, the chances of Master Edition coming to India are slim.
For those who don’t know what Explorer Master Edition is (I bet most of you don’t due to the confusing lineup), Explorer Master Edition is essentially the Master Edition with a Snapdragon 870 (A slightly improved version of Snapdragon 865).
