Realme GT Neo 5 specs revealed – Redmi K60 killer

Realme is preparing to introduce the Realme GT Neo 5 in China. The lucrative new flagship will be launched on February 9 and makes the Redmi K60 series its main target. For those who are not aware, Realme and Redmi are active competitors in the flagship mid-range and lucrative segments. Therefore, the GT Neo 5 realm has been eagerly awaited. Some of the highlights of the phone include Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 and 240 W fast charging. Today, a series of new specs leaked left nothing to the imagination. Is it a killer for the Redmi K60 series? Let’s find out.

Realme GT Neo 5 leaks specifications and details

The Realme GT Neo series has come a long way in recent years. From mid-range phones, we now have something close to the flagship segment. Very impressive considering SD8+ Gen 1 was sold in flagships just a few months ago. The company recently revealed a purple color option for the phone. It appears to replace the blue colorway of the Realme GT Neo 3 series. The Realme GT Neo 5 will feature a curved back panel with AG glass technology, and will also have a matte finish for the purple color option.

Just like the Realme GT Neo 3, the new Realme GT Neo 5 has two vertical lines with their distinctive colors. The phone has a large camera island which houses two circular cutouts and an RGB light. The two holes are enough to understand the triple camera setup. According to the leak, the phone will pack a 50MP main camera which will be accompanied by an 8MP ultrawide shooter and a 2MP decorative snapper for macro/depth detection. The main camera will pack OIS.

As mentioned earlier, this phone runs the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC. This is the same chipset inside the OnePlus 11R and Redmi K60. In fact, the Redmi K60 is presented as POCO F5 in the global market. So we will see the tough competition between these three phones.

Of course, one of the main selling points of the GT Neo 5 realm is fast charging. The company pushes the current USB Type-C standard to the limit with 240W. The company claims its technology is stable and secure. This charging solution has been certified by TUV Rheinland which guarantees its safety. According to Realme, it can provide up to 2 hours of call time on a small charge of 30 minutes. For those who are curious about the capacity of the cellphone, a 240W charging option will come with a 4,500mAh battery. According to the company, this battery can be charged in just 5 minutes.

If you want more battery, the Realme GT Neo 5 will also be available with an optional 5,000 mAh battery. The company maintains a dual version strategy. It’s worth noting that this option will charge “slower” 150W. Surprisingly, 150W is the maximum offered by the Realme GT Neo3 in its 4,500mAh battery. Realme made strides when it comes to pairing fast charging with a large battery. Perhaps next year we’ll see 240W charging paired with a 5,000mAh cell.

Furthermore, the Realme GT Neo 5 will have up to 16GB of LPDDR5X RAM and up to 256GB of UFS 4.0 storage. The phone will ship with Android 13 and Realme UI 4.0 right out of the box.

How does this phone compare to the Redmi K60?

The Realme GT Neo 5 will be a serious competitor to the Redmi K60, but you may be wondering how it compares to Xiaomi’s phones. The Redmi K60 packs the same chipset and has up to 16GB of RAM with up to 512GB of internal storage. It has a 64 MP camera with OIS, and the same 8 MP and 2 MP ultra wide and macro shooters. Both devices have AMOLED displays with up to 120Hz refresh rates. The Redmi K60 offers a 3200 x 1440 resolution, which the Chinese brand calls 1.5K resolution. The Redmi K60 is powered by a larger 5,500mAh battery, but charges slower at 67W.

The two devices are almost equivalent but at least have one advantage over each other. For example the Redmi K60 has a variant with 512 GB, and it turns out that the Realme GT Neo 5 doesn’t. However, the Realme GT Neo 5 has faster charging in both variants. In terms of cameras, we’d expect similar results, despite the difference in resolution. The best sensor and software will determine which phone captures the best images. Apart from that, the most obvious difference is on the software side. Even though they both run on Android 13, they both have different skins that set them apart.

Ultimately, it is up to the user to decide which phone is better. We’ll cover all the details of the Realme GT Neo 5 as it gets closer to the release date.
