Realme GT series smartphone has been on the market for about a year, and the company has been busy teasing the introduction of its successor series, which is expected to arrive shortly.
While there is no word on the basic GT 2, the company has stated that its larger sibling – the GT 2 Pro – will be the first premium flagship handset to sport the Realme brand and will be powered by the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor. So far, this is all we know.
When is the realme GT 2 Pro going to be released?
Realme CEO Sky Li originally hinted at the existence of the GT 2 Pro on Twitter on November 12, with the name following in another post on November 29.
According to the tech blog RealmiCentral, the new model will be released in the first quarter of 2022, which corresponds to the March launch window for the original Realme GT.
the Realme GT 2 Pro price ?
According to Realme CEO Sky Li’s announcement, the Realme GT 2 Pro will be the company’s first smartphone to cost more than $800( approx.Rs 60,000 ). We don’t know by how much, but logic suggests that it can only be between $801 and $899 (otherwise it would breach the $900 mark).
For the sake of argument, let’s say the price is $849, which translates to roughly £650 or €750. Of course, there are local taxes, import tariffs, and other fees to consider; so, applying VAT to the UK price yields £780, which may potentially rise to £799. The same may be said for European markets, so expect to pay roughly £800/€800/$849 for Realme’s first ‘real’ flagship.
We had anticipated an earlier release as the firm mentioned many December events. However, the first tease on December 9th came and went with only an “urban camping experience” for Chinese Realme fans (as detailed on the company’s Weibo page), while the ‘GT 2 Series Special Event’ on December 20th only teased a few of the phone’s features, without launching it fully – the only word on the proper launch is that it’s “coming soon.”
The Realme GT 5G was released in China on March 4, 2021, although it wasn’t available in other countries (including the UK) until later that year, on June 21, 2021. This was followed by a few additional models in the lineup, including the Realme GT Neo, which was released in China on March 31 but not in other markets.
To further complicate matters, Realme released a few special versions of the GT shortly after its initial release. These were the GT Master Edition, which had a redesigned chassis and a less powerful CPU at a lower price, and the GT Explorer Master Edition, which had minor camera module improvements and a slightly bigger display. Both will be available in China in July 2021, with the Master Edition arriving in worldwide markets in August 2021.

Meanwhile, the Realme GT Neo 2 has already been released and is currently available worldwide. So, if you’re curious about how the second generation of the line’s more cheap handsets stacks up, check out our detailed Realme GT Neo 2 review.
