Realme has announced 3 new main features of the realme GT 2 Pro in terms of design, imaging, and communication at the realme GT 2 series special global event. The Company already confirmed that its first premium flagship smartphone the realme GT 2 Pro will be powered by Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Mobile Platform.
Bio-based Smartphone Design -
Realme has partnered with Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa for the Paper Tech Master Design that will be given a premium, yet simple overall look in the realme GT 2 Pro. The company also says that the phone uses the world’s first Bio-based smartphone design.
The back cover material of the phone is made of sustainable Sabic bio-based material that is extracted from renewable raw materials such as paper pulp and fallen leaves that can reduce carbon emissions by up to 63% per kilogram and can also reduce potential fossil feedstock consumption by up to 35%. Sabic bio-based material has passed the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) and also other extremely stringent environmental regulation standards such as REACH, RoHS, and EPEAT.
Realme also shows the GT 2 Pro retail box that has eco-friendly Packaging, which uses just 0.3% plastic, compared to 21.7% in the older models. It has also used eco-friendly Soy Ink for printing, used for the color box and the user manual.
Realme World’s first 150° ultra-wide Camera Lens -
The company announced the realme GT 2 Pro will be the first smartphone to feature a 150° ultra-wide camera, which expands the phone’s field of view by 278% compared to the main camera’s 84° field.
Realme has also announced that has developed the world’s first fisheye mode for smartphones, which will be introduced in the realme GT 2 Pro to provide a strong perspective or ultra-long depth of field effect. The overall picture becomes even more visually appealing in the large field of view.
HyperSmart Antenna Switching -
The company also announced that the upcoming realme GT 2 Pro will feature an Antenna Array Matrix System consisting of three technologies - the world’s first ultra-wide-band antenna switching technology (HyperSmart), a Wi-Fi Enhancer, and 360° near-field communication (NFC) technology.
Realme GT 2 Pro also has the top two cellular antennas with an NFC signal transceiver function, increasing the sensing area by 500% and the sensing distance by 20%. The entire upper part of the GT 2 Pro senses NFC signals in either direction, facilitating the use of NFC for swiping cards or smartphones.
The realme’s HyperSmart antenna switching technology is designed with 12 wrap-around antennas that cover all sides of the phone and support mainstream bands in almost all directions with the same signal strength. This allows GT 2 Pro to intelligently evaluate the signal strength of all antennas and detect automatically to select the one with the best signal.
The symmetrical Wi-Fi antenna is designed to ensure more balanced signal strength around the phone. The Company has tested this design that improved signal stability by 20% compared to asymmetrical Wi-Fi antenna design.
At the last of the event, realme said that the realme GT 2 series will be announced soon, but didn't reveal the launch date.
