Appearing after the GT Neo3 model already revealed for the Asian markets, Realme GT Neo3T changes the MediaTek chipset to one provided by Qualcomm.
Thus, if the Realme GT Neo3 comes powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 8100 solution, a solution with comparable Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 performance, the GT Neo3T makes the transition to a previous generation Qualcomm chipset, but perfectly capable of delivering a competitive level of performance.
Although it may not compete with Qualcomm’s latest flagship solution in terms of gross performance, the SD870 solution used by the Realme GT Neo3T may still have other benefits, such as lower risk of overheating and greater battery life. Of course, there would also be the price aspect, which will be clarified during the official launch event.
Snapdragon 870 is an optimized version of the original SD865, its performance being given by a CPU with 1 Cortex-A77 core (3.2Ghz) + 3x Cortex-A77 (2.42GHz) + 4x Cortex-A55 (1.8GHz). There is also a 5G modem, the chosen solution offering only access to networks in the sub-6Ghz band (without mmWave). This translates into slightly lower transfer speeds, but without compromising on the coverage offered (mmWave technology is extremely short coverage). The list of features is complete with support for Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, HDR10 +, 4K / 60fps and AV1 video decoding, plus a dedicated AI processor.
Already released in the GeekBench catalog, GT Neo3T comes equipped with 8GB of RAM and Android version 12. The phone gets a score of 1003 points in the single-core test and 2607 points in the multi-core test, slightly less than other phones based on Snapdragon 870 , but this may be due to poor firmware optimization.
According to other rumors, the Realme GT Neo3 comes with a 64MP main camera and a 16MP selfie camera. The screen has a diagonal of 6.5 inches, and it remains to be seen whether it is LCD or OLED. Apparently, there will be a version of the phone with 256GB storage. Unfortunately, in the absence of more information, it is not clear whether or not the Realme GT Neo3 will reach European stores.
