The strategy of "Dual-platform Dual-flagship" will also lay out a new journey for realme in the coming days. 

Madhav Sheth, Vice-President, realme, and CEO, realme India and Europe said, “I am confident that The Dual-platform Dual-flagship" strategy will help us achieve a significant share in the mid-to-high-end products segment as a part of our brand development. The realme GT is based on our ‘Dare to Leap’ spirit and is an indication of what realme has in place for its users this year. realme GT  represents our philosophy of forefront of innovation of technology, design and product value, which is something that young people can resonate with.”  

GT series will become the flagship series with top performance in the realme smartphone portfolio under the "Dual-platform Dual-flagship" strategy. As the new performance flagship with Snapdragon 888, GT brings users the power of the leap-forward high performance and a sustained surging experience.

To better unleash the performance of Snapdragon 888  realme GT is innovatively equipped with the  Stainless Steel VC Cooling System. The new cooling system further improves the phone's heat dissipation performance by applying stainless steel in the cooling system and optimizing the heat dissipation structure.

realme GT is based on the concept of  GT sports cars, which were designed for high speed and long-distance driving, and combines both high performance and reliable attributes. The realme GT will also flaut a  unique and extraordinary design. The Dual-tone Vegan Leather Design will use two different kinds of material in two different colors to achieve a sense of speed that matches the high performance. To achieve this visual effect, realme also pioneered a one-piece moulding process for the back cover and the inner frame, making the Vegan Leather fit more tightly with the black glossy "race track" finish. It will also witness an upgraded 2nd generation of  Vegan Leather with a more delicate texture, softer touch feeling, and better color effect.

realme GT will be officially released on March 4, bringing new excitement to realme's smartphone product line-up.
