Realme is preparing for the launch of its next premium mid-range smartphone — the GT Neo 5. The renders of the phone surfaced a while ago, and now we have a detailed specs sheet. So, let’s get into the leaked specs, rumored features, and everything else we know about the Realme GT Neo 5 so far.

Realme GT Neo 5 Overview:

240W Fast Charging

At its launch, Realme GT Neo 3 was among the fastest charging phone with support for 150W charging. And its successor is set to take this even further. The GT Neo 5 has been confirmed to support 240W charging, making it the first smartphone to do so.

For starters, the 240W rating is also the maximum charging power supported by the USB-C interface. There is also talk of another variant with 150W charging support.

Regardless, Realme has already revealed the details of its 240W charging technology. To accomplish this, the brand designed a customized 12A charging cable made of the industry’s highest-rated 21AWG thickened copper wires. This allows the cable to handle a throughput of 20V/12A.

The USB-C adapter, on the other hand, has double GaN components. But it’s still small, with a 2.34W/cu.cm density that makes it about the same size as the 160W SuperDart adapter.

For charging the smartphone, the new solution uses a three-way 100W charge pump parallel design to convert 20V/12A power to 10V/24A. That means the phone will have three individual battery cells. The company also hinted that the charger has a charging conversion efficiency of up to 98.5%.

All this process is monitored by 13 real-time sensors to ensure safety, which limits the power if there is any danger. For added peace of mind, the charging solution includes fireproof materials. Moreover, the 240W SuperVOOC protocol is backward compatible with the 65W PD, QC, and VOOC protocols.

Furthermore, Realme claims that the battery’s health remains over 80% even after 1,600, full charging cycles with 240W fast charging. As for the actual battery capacity, the 240W variant of the GT Neo 5 is said to feature a 4,600mAh cell. Whereas the 150W version will include a bigger 5000mAh battery.

Performance and Memory

Furthermore, the phone is said to have the industry’s largest cooling area, with Graphene phase-change cooling material occupying 6,580 sq. mm area. This cooling solution will help the phone maintain its peak performance in demanding situations like gaming, while also keeping it relatively cool while charging at 240W.

Inside, Realme GT Neo 5 is likely to be powered by Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, as per the latest rumors. Launched about a year ago, the chip has now been overtaken by the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 in Qualcomm’s diverse portfolio. However, it should not be a problem with the GT Neo 5 as it will compete in the premium midrange segment and not the flagship.

And the tipsters believes that Realme won’t downgrade the Snapdragon chipset for speed; it will instead employ the full capabilities of it. Likewise, it will debut with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. On the software side, it will ship with Android 13 with the latest Realme UI 4.0 out of the box.

Camera

The leaked renders of the Realme GT Neo 5 show the phone with a redesigned camera bump. Basically, the top 1/3 portion of the phone’s back has been blacked out, with the rectangular camera module sitting inside to the left. It is home to three cameras arranged in two vertical circles, with the LED strip flash lying just outside.

New leaks suggests that the primary sensor will be 50MP Sony IMX890 coupled with an OIS module. It will be replacing the IMX766 on the GT Neo 3 while keeping the Optical Image Stabilization. Accompanying it, on the other circle, will be an 8MP ultrawide and a 2MP macro sensor.

Design and Display

Another interesting thing about the upcoming Realme GT Neo 5 is that some reports claim it will have some sort of RGB lighting. But so far, we have no idea how Realme plans to implement it as it has not yet been captured in the leaked renders. The phone will have a plastic frame.

Likewise, there will be a 6.7-inch FHD+ screen with 144Hz refresh rate on the front. It will also boast PWM dimming of 2160Hz for a more comfortable viewing angle. Since it will sport an AMOLED screen, it’s likely the screen will have an optical fingerprint scanner underneath it.
