GT 2 Pro in the first test: Realme accelerates

With the GT 2 Pro, Realme has also announced its most powerful smartphone for Germany. In addition to the latest chip, the top device also offers good camera equipment, fast charging and a fine display.

After Realme presented the GT 2 Pro in China in January, it is now the turn of the global launch at the MWC 2022 in Barcelona. The GT 2 Pro is the most powerful smartphone in Realme’s portfolio and is clearly at home in the upper class. This also applies to the price, because it is unusually expensive for Realme from 750 euros. But: the equipment is right, because Realme installs almost everything you could wish for in a top phone.

We took a close look at the GT 2 Pro in the first test and discovered that it clearly belongs to the Oppo and Oneplus family.

Realme is breaking new ground in terms of housing design. For a price starting at 750 euros, one would actually expect a glass back. But the back of the GT 2 Pro is called “Paperlike Back” and is instead made of a bio-polymer that is supposed to reduce the CO2 footprint. Due to the ribbed structure and the matt plastic, the GT 2 Pro is particularly easy to hold and has an interesting feel. The frame is made of metal, is ground flat at the top and bottom and is kept in the color of the housing. All buttons on the case have a crisp, quality pressure point.

For the fact that Realme plants a battery with 5000 mAh in the GT 2 Pro, the smartphone is comparatively thin and handy. Its weight is not excessive at 191 grams, which is probably also due to the plastic. As befits its status, the GT 2 Pro is charged very quickly: a power supply unit with 65 watts is included in the scope of delivery – unfortunately with a USB-A connection. You also have to do without wireless charging, which actually belongs to the upper class. There is also no protection from the elements dust and water.

More is not possible: The ultra wide angle supports a 150-degree mode, with which there is even more on the picture. But then with distortions at the edges.

Dual 50 MP camera with ultra-wide view and microscope images

There are three lenses and two LED lights in the camera unit on the back. Realme installs two 50-megapixel sensors for the main camera and the ultra-wide-angle lens. There is also a microscope camera with up to 40x magnification, which we saw for the first time in the Oppo Find X3 Pro. Also special is the ultra-wide field of view of 150 degrees with the ultra-wide angle, with which you can get a lot more on the photo than with similar optics.

Realme installs a 50 MP main and ultra wide-angle camera in the GT 2 Pro as well as a microscope lens with up to 40x magnification.

The microscope camera depicts the smallest details that are difficult to see even with the naked eye. To do this, you hold the lens just above the object to be photographed, which ideally should not move. Even the smallest movements cause the image to become blurred. Basically, the feature is a gimmick, but still amazes with unusual insights.

With the two main cameras, you get pictures with good detail content in the highest resolution. Illumination is a key term, however, because fine structures quickly become muddy in less light.

With the microscope camera, even the finest structures become visible. Even if not in the best quality.

120Hz OLED with fine resolution and current high-end chip

The display brings back memories of Oneplus: The fine resolution of 1,440 x 3,216 pixels is identical to that of the Oneplus 9 Pro. Here, however, the screen is flat. 120 Hz and LTPO of the second generation are on board. This means that the Realme GT 2 Pro automatically regulates the display refresh rate in steps between 1 and 120 Hz depending on the content, which saves energy. The brightness of the display makes a good impression, the readability is still good even in the sun. There is an optical fingerprint scanner for unlocking under the screen, which works very quickly.

Inside, Realme installs Qualcomm’s current top chipset, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, with 6 or 8 GB RAM in the GT 2 Pro. With it you have a lot of power in your hand, which meets the highest demands for graphics-intensive games. The system also operates smoothly. Realme relies on the latest Android 12 with the Realme UI 3 user interface, which is strongly reminiscent of Oppo’s Color OS.

On the networking side, 5G, WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2 are state-of-the-art. NFC is even available with 360 degrees. The GT 2 Pro supports dual SIM. There is no memory expansion, you have to be satisfied with 128 or 256 GB. However, the latter version then costs 849 euros.

On the front you can see a 6.7-inch OLED with 120 Hz.

Realme GT 2 Pro: First conclusion

Realme is now also stepping on the gas in the upper class segment, there is no doubt about that. With the GT 2 Pro, the Chinese have presented a top smartphone whose equipment is definitely something to look forward to in 2022. Whether the lack of wireless charging and water protection are a deal breaker depends on your own wishes. Even without the features, the GT 2 Pro is a strong device for the price
