Photo Announcement. Realme GT Neo 5 is a smartphone that fully charges in 10 minutes

I'm impressed. But before I start praising the Realme GT Neo 5, I'd like to say a few words about the price. From ¥2499 (₽26300, $368) for 8+256 GB. In China, of course.

So. Realme GT Neo 5 is a mind-blowing smartphone with no weak points at all. But, above all, this is a smartphone with a record-breaking charging speed.

It will be released in two versions. Or charging faster, but the battery is a little smaller. Or vice versa. Either 4600mAh and 240W or 5000mAh and 150W. What is 240W? They promise that Realme GT Neo 5 will be charged from zero to one hundred percent in about 570 seconds. Those. a little fasterthan 10 minutes. Madness? Yes. As for me, 150 watts is already too much. But you can get into the Guinness Book of Records. By the way, a charger for all 240 W is included in the standard package. You won’t have to pay separate money for it.

Next. The chipset is called Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. Those. and in terms of speed Realme GT Neo 5 is a full-fledged flagship, in AnTuTu it will score for a million parrots.

There is a lot of memory. From 8 to 16 GB of operational, from 256 to 1024 GB of permanent. There is no support for memory cards, oh well.

Screen. Also extremely cool. Although it does not seem to be LTP.O. But AMOLED. 6.74" diagonal (109 cm²). Resolution 1240x2772 (451 ppi). Ultra-high refresh rate - up to 144 Hz.

Cameras. 16 MP front, 50+8+2 MP rear. 2 MP - proprietary microscope. 8 MP - standard wide-angle module. 50 MP - the main camera with a quite serious Sony IMX890 sensor and optical stabilization. As usual, only a telephoto is missing to the title of a full-fledged flagship.

Other. There is an NFC module, dual-band Wi-Fi, Type-C, an IR blaster. The fingerprint scanner is built into the screen.

Of the LTE bands of interest to us, only Band 20 is missing. "Seven" is�.

Of the curious chips - appearance. More precisely, a rectangle on the back of the device that can glow in different colors.

Well, the prices. For convenience - in the form of a tablet.
