Realme GT Neo 5 phone can be fully charged in less than 10 minutes
In a nutshell: Realme is redefining the term “fast charging” with its new GT Neo 5 smartphone, which includes a 240W fast charging system. Need a quick 20 percent juice before you walk out the door? If you can spare a minute and a half, you are golden.
The phone features a 6.74-inch 10-bit AMOLED screen with a 144Hz refresh rate that runs at 2772 x 1240 resolution and covers 100 percent of the DCI-P3 color space. Realme also has 16GB of RAM and up to 1TB of UFS 3.1 storage.
On the back, you’ll find a 50-megapixel Sony IMX 890 image sensor powering the main camera, along with an 8-megapixel wide-angle sensor and a 2-megapixel microscopic lens. The Samsung S5K3P9’s 16-megapixel camera does a great job of taking selfies, but the real star of the show is the battery setup and charging system.
The GT Neo 5 240W is powered by a 4600mAh battery (two 2300mAh batteries, it seems) and comes with a standard USB Type-C 20V/12A (max) adapter. A quick 30-second charge is enough for three hours of music, two hours of talk time, or one hour of video playback. Leave your phone on charge for just 80 seconds and it will recover 20 percent of its charge. It only takes four minutes for a 50 percent charge, and you can fully charge your phone in about 10 minutes.
Like GSM Arena basic momentsthese characteristics are the fastest on the market.
There shouldn’t be any safety issues either, as lab tests have shown that the phone gets no more than 10 degrees hot while charging. In addition, it can reportedly last about 1,600 charges from empty to 100 percent and maintain 80 percent total capacity by the end. Under normal conditions (charging once a day), this equates to more than four years of use before the battery reaches 80 percent maximum capacity.
Realme GT Neo 5 240W will be offered in purple, white and black color schemes starting at $470. Unfortunately, so far it only enters the Chinese market. With any luck, in the not too distant future we will see more powerful charging systems proliferate across major and global brands.
