The Realme GT2 大师探索版 smartphone was announced in China. aka Realme GT2 Master Explorer Edition, aka Realme GT2 Explorer Master.

About relatives. The smartphone does not have identical twins, but, in general, Explorer Master can be considered a cousin of the flagship Realme GT2 Pro. Slightly different chipsets, charging is faster for a beginner, and the screen resolution is higher for the firmware. And the camera sets are similar.

The chipset is a fresh top-end Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 (against the obsolete Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 a couple of months ago in GT2 Pro). We are waiting in AnTuTu in the region of a million points.

Memory is fine.8 or 12 GB operational, 128 or 256 GB permanent. Support for memory cards, of course, is missing.

A 6.7" (108 cm²) OLED screen with a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz. The resolution is standard, 1080x2412, which gives 394 ppi (against GT2 Pro's crazy 526 ppi).

Battery - standard 5000 mAh. Charging is ultra-fast, as much as 100 W (they promise that the time for a full charge will be 25 minutes and not a minute more).

The front camera is more modest than the GT2 Pro, only 16 MP versus 32 MP. But the set of rear cameras, apparently, is the same.

  • 50 MP - main camera with sensorum Sony IMX766 and optical stabilization.
  • 50MP wide-angle camera with Samsung ISOCELL JN1 sensor.
  • A "microscope" camera with 20X magnification. The permission is not named. Either 2 or 3 MP, probably. GT2 Pro has a similar camera, it has a resolution of 3 MP, sort of.

Other. There is an NFC module, Wi-Fi of the sixth version, a fingerprint scanner is hidden in the screen. All "our" LTE bands are supported.

And about money. Now in China for Realme GT2 Explorer Master they want ¥3499 (₽30500, $522), ¥3499 (₽30500, $522) and ¥3999 (₽34900, $596) for 8+128, 8+256 and 12+256 GB respectively.
