Realme GT Neo 3 and under-display camera phone coming in H2 2022; foldable phone in the works

Realme GT Neo 3 is the company's upcoming premium mid-range offering with MediaTek Dimensity 8100 and 150W fast charging.

Highlights
  • Realme GT Neo 3 will launch in the second half of this year.
  • The brand is working on a phone with an under-display camera and it will debut in H2 2022.
  • Realme foldable phone is also in the works.

At MWC 2022, Realme launched the GT 2 series, the Book Prime laptop, and Buds Air 3 wireless earphones. The company has also confirmed the Realme GT Neo 3 will come with MediaTek Dimensity 8100 chipset and 150W fast charging support. However, what we don’t know is the launch timeline. That changes now as Realme’s Madhav Sheth in a group media interview session has reportedly confirmed that the Realme GT Neo 3 will launch in the second half of the year and will be one of the first phones to be powered by the brand new MediaTek chipset. Interestingly, the top executive also confirmed that the brand is working on a phone with an under-display camera for an H2 2022 release.

Madhav Sheth further shared the company is experimenting with different smartphone form factors, including a foldable one. While this is a big deal, there is no timeline set for the commercial launch of a Realme foldable phone just yet. Realme’s MagDart magnetic charging system is still due to launch though it is being optimised at the moment as the current versions involve several compromises for users. The key constraint is the available space inside MagDart compatible devices which results in phones that are too thick or have small battery capacities.

The top executive further elaborated on the brand’s decision to include a 3MP microscope camera on the Realme GT 2 Pro instead of a telephoto module as it offers functionality that can’t be matched by the other two sensors. Realme says that it believes the microscope lens will offer close enough results to telephoto cameras via digital zoom and crops from the main sensors, paired with its computational photography software.
