Madhav Seth shared a tweet teasing the GT Neo2 launch in India. Francis Wong, CMO, Realme India, and Europe, also shared a picture of the retail packaging of GT Neo2 and Buds Air 2, which would be coming to India and Europe. The box can be seen in the neon green colour, suggesting that Realme would be bringing the Mint Green colour of GT Neo2 in India and Europe.

Unlike the last time, the Realme GT Neo2 won’t be getting a new branding for India. To recall, the Realme GT Neo was launched in India as Realme X7 Max. But, now the X series is replaced by the GT. So, the Realme GT Neo2 will come with the same moniker to India and Europe.
