Specification

The Realme GT2 series launched in China last year is the flagship Realme GT 5G from March 2021. But this time, we get two versions – a standard GT2 and a GT2 Pro option, which Realme says is the most premium flagship it has ever made. The GT2 Pro offers an impressive set of improvements over the GT 5G in every key aspect . Motoral Edge 20

Realme GT2 Pro

Two 50MP sensors, fisheye and microscopic lenses

The Realme GT2 Pro has similar to the iQOO 9 Pro’s and the Oppo Find X5 Pro’s camera setups with two 50MP sensors. They use different optics, though.

In this case, the primary shooter uses Sony’s IMX766 50MP, 1/1.56″ in size with 1.0µm pixels. The sensor is aided by OIS and supports multi-directional PDAF, and the lens provides a fairly wide f/1.8 aperture.

Normally secondary to the main cam, the ultrawide camera is probably the star of the show here. It’s one of the few cameras with a 150-degree field of view. The only other phone running such a setup is the aforementioned iQOO 9 Pro.

Sitting behind the extremely wide lens is the Samsung ISOCELL JN1 sensor, 1/2.76″ in size and having 0.64µm pixels. Тhe lens features f/2.2 aperture and doesn’t have autofocus, even though the similar implementation of the same sensor on the IQOO 9 Pro has auto focus enabled.

Micro-lens camera

The third camera is the so-called Micro-lens camera, which is essentially a 3MP, f/3.0 camera, fitted with lens for microscope level magnification.The native magnification is 20x but up to 40x is offered as digital zoom. The unit supports AF and produces neat photos.

On the front, we have a 32MP f/2.4, 1/2.74″, 0.8µm camera for selfies that shoots in the full 32MP resolution.

Main camera

The daylight samples look great and are comparable to that of the big brands in the industry. Sharpness is great, the level of detail is good, and the dynamic range is excellent. Expectedly, going inside with the camera produces slightly noisier pictures and sharpness drops by a little, but the fine detail is retained.

Realme UI 3.0 based on Android 12

As one would expect, the Realme GT2 Pro runs on the latest Android 12 plastered with Realme UI 3.0. Since this is a flagship device, you can expect at least two years of major updates.

Visually, the OS hasn’t changed much. Realme UI has colorful UI with Customizable UI elements and its own iconography for the notification shade and the general settings menu

Realme GT2 Pro Battery life

Coming from the original Realme GT 5G, the GT2 Pro adds another 5000 mAH to its battery capacity, and as you’d expect, the overall endurance rating is significantly higher. But we suspect the more efficient hardware – display plus chipset – also deserves some credit.

Charging speed

The Realme GT2 Pro employs the same charging tech as last year’s Realme GT 5G – 65W SuperDart charging that pumps two separate battery cells at the same time, achieving high charging speeds. And despite the larger battery capacity (5,000 mAh vs. 4,500 mAh), the GT2 Pro’s charging times are comparable to that of its predecessor. In the first 30 minutes, the GT2 Pro replenished 91% of its juice, and ten more minutes are required to a full charge.

Speakers

The GT2 Pro sports a standard dual-speaker setup that consists of a bottom-firing one and a smaller one that acts as an earpiece as well. When playing together, they seem to be well-balanced for the purpose but covering the bottom one reveals a flatter sound coming out of the top one, and it’s considerably quieter, too.

Just like last year’s Realme GT 5G, this one doesn’t necessarily impress with sound quality. At higher volumes, the highs are a bit distorted, although the vocals are clear and punchy. The mid-tones are a bit lacking again, and so are the lows. It lacks that particular fullness.

As far as loudness goes, it has gone down since last year’s GT as it gets a “Good” overall score thanks to its -26.3 LUFS.
