Realme kicked off this year by releasing its most-awaited GT 2 series phones. But, it was only launched in China at that time, and finally, the Relame GT 2 Pro has arrived in India as the company’s most feature-packed flagship phone. It is powered by Qualcomm’s most powerful chipset and features a 50MP triple camera setup on the back.
Remember Japanese industrial designer Naoto Fukusawa who designed the Realme GT Master Edition? The same person has also been given the task of designing the Realme GT 2 Pro that feels like paper. It is the first smartphone of such a kind. “Every million GT 2 Pros made with the Paper Tech Master Design is the equivalent of 3.5 million fewer plastic bottles being produced.”, says Realme.
