Back in April, Realme launched the second device under the GT lineup – GT Neo. Less than six months later, it has been confirmed that the company is working on its successor. Here, we will be looking at all the leaks and rumors surrounding the specs and launch date of the upcoming Realme GT Neo 2.
Realme GT Neo 2 Rumors Roundup:
The news of Realme working on the successor of the GT Neo has already been confirmed by the VP of Realme China in one of his Weibo posts. However, the company has been tight-lipped about the specs and features of the phone.
Fortunately for us, OnLeaks has collaborated with Digit India to give us the first glimpse of GT Neo 2. Keep in mind, this leak is based on a pre-production unit. Realme can still make changes before it starts mass production of the device.
Design and Display
Now, starting with the display, Realme GT Neo 2 will feature a 6.62-inch AMOLED panel with a left-aligned punch-hole for the 16MP selfie camera. It will retain the 120Hz refresh rate from the original GT Neo. Realme will also be including an optical fingerprint scanner underneath the screen.
Over at the back, the silver/grey finish reminds me of the Gloss Black variant of the Oppo Find X3 Pro. However, all we get is a standard rectangular camera module and not the Gradient Arc design.
Performance and Memory
Moving on, the phone will pack Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 chipset under the hood. It’s a slightly overclocked version of last year’s Snapdragon 865+. This will be paired with 8GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage. But we can expect other memory configurations to be available as well.

As it stands, we might not see any changes in the camera setup. GT Neo 2 could inherit the same 64MP triple camera setup with an 8MP ultra-wide and a 2MP macro sensor from the GT Neo.
Rest of the specs
The battery department is getting an upgrade though. GT Neo 2 will feature a 5,000mAh battery, which is a decent upgrade from the 4,500mAh cell on its predecessor. The phone will boot on Realme 2.0 based on Android 11. Also, the leaked renders of the phone do not show any sign of a headphone jack.
