Design: In line with Realme
This Realme GT 2 Pro has a design that follows in the footsteps of what has been presented so far by the Asian brand. According to Realme, it is made with a polymeric (plastic) back cover that reduces the carbon footprint required for its manufacture by up to 35%, as well as laser engraving with 0,1 millimeters, in addition to a series of recyclable materials and soy ink. As for the design, the "power" button for the right side and the volume for the left, as always.
We have USB-C at the bottom and up to three shades to acquire: White, green and blue.
- Weight: 189 grams
- Size: 74,7x163x8,2 mm
- Useful surface: 88%
- Makings: plastic and aluminum
For its part, the front bezels of only 0,40 millimeters promise to be one of the thinnest on the market, It is surprising that the four sides of the device are not symmetrical and the sensation is not as good as we could imagine. A rear camera module identical to the rest of Realme's recent range with three sensors and dual LED flash. Of course, next to the camera module we have both the device brand and the designer's signature. In perceived quality and design we cannot say that this Realme is up to other ranges, it does not stand out enough in this aspect, but it is appreciated that it always exercises innovation.
Technical characteristics: Nothing is missing
This Realme GT 2 Pro hides under the hood a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, accompanied by 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB Highest speed storage with technology UFS 3.1, which is noticeable in its performance, since in Antutu V9 it stands at 1.003.987 points, that is, higher than 99% of devices on the market. In daily use, its very high rate of data transmission and reading, accompanied by a large RAM memory and a dedicated processor, we have obtained results that are up to expectations.
- Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen1
- RAM: 8 / 12 GB
- Memory: 128 / 256 GB
- Android 12 + Realme UI 3.0
Its processor offers eight cores 1×3.0GHz Cortex X2 + 3×2.5GHz Cortex A710 + 4×1.80GHz Cortex A510 for a frequency of 3 GHz and with 4 nanometer architecture. In addition, it is supported by a Adreno GPU 730 that will accompany a good result in graphic performance.+
- Wi-Fi 6E
- Bluetooth 5.2
- NFC 360º
- 5G and LTE
All this to run Realme UI 3.0, a customization layer that runs on Android 12 and that, despite being quite light, always has an adware problem that is intolerable on a device of this price, pre-installed applications such as TikTok or Facebook.
Autonomy and multimedia experience
By flag it carries its screen, a panel Very well adjusted 6,7-inch AMOLED with LTPO 2.0 technology. This panel has 2K resolution o WQHD + of 1440 × 3216 pixels which gives it nothing less than one ddensity of 526 pixels per inch. It has a maximum brightness of 1.400 nits and is protected by a glass Gorilla Glass Victus.
As you can imagine, it has compatibility HDR10 + accompanied by a soft drink adaptive (Apple-style) up to 120Hz, which will take advantage of the performance automatically based on the needs of each application. Where this Realme GT 2 Pro draws attention again is in the touch refresh rate nothing less than 1.000Hz, which is almost double what is usual in this range (about 600Hz).
This is how this Realme GT 2 Pro offers a great multimedia experience accompanied by its two speakers to provide stereo sound with Dolby Atmos technology as well as Hi-Res Audio that in our tests has performed at high volume without any distortion.
La 5.000 mAh battery provides about 9 hours of screen time, with a fast charge of 65W already known by other analyzes and as always completely dispensing with wireless charging.
- Gaming mode
In addition to controlling so much hardware, the device bets on its classic vapor chamber cooling, and it is that this Realme GT 2 Pro is also focused on gaming, where it stands out clearly. We have been able to appreciate a good performance in this aspect and capabilities at the height of the high range against demanding applications and games.
Cameras: Under the microscope
One of the main attractions of this Realme GT 2 Pro is precisely the camera, where it whispers to some classics in the photography rankings, for this we analyze each of the sensors individually.
- 50 MP Sony IMX766 OIS PDAF sensor: It has optical and electronic stabilization simultaneously, we have a good fit, a good night mode and a video recording that leaves nothing to be desired for the Samsung or Huawei on duty whenever we talk about price equality.
- Wide Angle Sensor: The widest image on the market betting on a 1º Fisheye Samsung JN150 sensor with micrometer pixels in case we use bixel bining to obtain 12,5 MP results. It offers a good shot even with adverse lighting conditions and thus allows us to take a distance from the usual and play with the angles.
- Micro lens with 40 optical magnification for macro and microscopic results.
- 16MP Selfie Camera with powerful Beauty Mode intervention.
We have a "high-end" device with an adjusted price with all the features that can be expected in this price range and that seeks to "stir" from the traditional with a very high touch refresh rate, the widest Wide Angle and much more.
