Specs aren’t the biggest surprise about Realme’s next flagship phone

Realme's next flagship phone isn't just going for high specs, it's also going for sustainability. The Oppo sister brand announced the latest device in a series of tweets on Wednesday. The GT 2 Pro is set to debut in January and will sport one of Qualcomm's newest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 mobile processors. That makes it one of only a few new devices that have been revealed for the new processor, alongside the Moto Edge X30 and the Xiaomi Mi 12 series.

Realme GT 2 Pro render brings the Nexus 6P back from the dead

There was a lot of discussion about the Pixel 6's unorthodox design, and, as expected, opinions were split on the matter. Some definitely loved its quirky and memorable appearance, while others balked at the almost asymmetric design. It wasn't the first Google phone to have a wide camera bump jutting out of its back, however, and there have been some comparisons made with the Nexus 6P made by Huawei for Google in 2015. It seems that OPPO spinoff Realme is trying to revive that equally awkward design if this leak about its next GT-branded phone is any indication.

Realme GT Neo2 Review

Realme GT Neo2 Review

It has become harder and harder to define what constitutes a flagship phone these days. Technically speaking, any phone that becomes the brand's foremost product is considered its flagship. On a practical level, however, those are often the phones boasting high-end features that usually come with a matching price tag. It's in that latter context that Realme is bringing out its own flagship killer with a slightly different formula than those flagships. But does the Realme GT Neo 2 really have what it takes to take on those high-end smartphones, or is it just marketing-speak? We give it a good shake to find out.

Realme 4K Google TV Stick details emerge ahead of launch

Xiaomi has long dabbled in products outside of its core mobile business, and it seems that its competitors are also trying to break into new markets. Realme is the one that is perhaps trying to leave its mark in as many markets as it could, from tablets to laptops and, soon, to TVs. Unlike OnePlus, it isn't making its own TV, though, and instead will be launching an HDMI stick running Google TV next week.

Realme Narzo 50A design might leave you scratching your head

Realme Narzo 50A design might leave you scratching your head

We recently reviewed a pair of Realme phones that put the company's name under the spotlight. The Realme GT Master Edition and its more premium Explorer sibling are definitely head-turners, at least for their "Travel Suitcase" vegan leather rears. Realme's upcoming mid-range phone, however, will probably take the cake in terms of unorthodox design, with a dual-tone back and an odd fingerprint sensor placement that will make you wonder what Realme's designers were thinking when they conceptualized the Realme Narzo 50A.

Taking aim at the MacBook family, the laptop tries to balance power, portability, and price, just like many other laptops in the market today.

The Realme brand was created to specifically target a younger demographic, customers that don't always have the resources to buy the latest and greatest smartphones.

Spun off from OPPO, Realme's mission has always been to cater to the younger generation of smartphone users, a generation whose lifestyles took a dramatic downward turn last year due to the pandemic.

Xiaomi beat Samsung in Europe for the first time

Xiaomi beat Samsung in Europe for the first time

The past 18 months have thrown the smartphone market royalty into disarray. It was no surprise that Huawei was dethroned from its coveted spot but getting booted out of the world's Top 5 was still painful. Samsung barely maintains a lead in the global market after a decrease in shipments, while Apple remains stable against all odds. Amidst this reshuffling, Xiaomi is emerging as the strongest contender, having surpassed even Samsung last quarter, at least in Europe.

Realme MagDart magnetic wireless charging leaks before official debut

Some might not like to admit it, but Apple has always been a trendsetter, whether it actually creates new technologies or builds up existing ones. It was actually late to the wireless charging train, but its adoption provided a much-needed mark of confidence for the technology. Now it is pushing wireless charging further by utilizing its expertise in magnets to make a simple but important change, a change that has inspired Realme to push its own MagDart system to keep phones from slipping off chargers and vice versa.
