The phone will be known simply as the Realme GT Neo3 and will be released in a few months.
According to reports from @OnLeaks and Zollege, the phone will be launched on July 31 and will cost around $25,500 ($340/€300).
There’s an expectation that the pricing reflects a launch-day discount, as it would otherwise be rather cheap. The Neo2 started at ₹32,000 INR, but during the holiday season, it was discounted by ₹7,000 INR.
And now comes your very first look at the #RealmeGTNeo3 through a high-resolution official press render!

The Snapdragon 888 chipset is likely to power the standard GT Neo3. The Snapdragon 870 was used in the Neo2 last year, so the 888 will provide a performance improvement even if it isn’t the latest and best from Qualcomm.
The Gaming Edition device, on the other hand, is said to employ the Dimensity 9000 chipset, making it the faster of the duo.
Anyhow, the latest model will come with an improved camera system that includes a 50 MP primary sensor and optical image stabilisation (OIS) (vs. 64 MP no OIS).
The remaining cameras will be the same as the 2021 model, which means an 8 MP ultra-wide, a 2 MP macro, and a 16 MP selfie camera. At 6.62″, the display should be the same size.
The 5,000 mAh battery in the vanilla model should be the same as last year. It’s unknown whether the charging speed will be increased beyond 65W, although the Gaming Edition is said to be capable of 125W, so there’s a possibility.
At the MWC next week, the Realme GT2 series will go international. Months later, the GT3 series will come, most likely in China initially, before moving to India and other regions.
