Realme confirmed this Monday (6) the existence of the GT Neo 2, a device that will bring powerful specifications and will replace the GT Neo, a smartphone that was launched in March this year. The information was disclosed in a post on the Chinese social network Weibo, and the brand took the opportunity to celebrate the high sales of the first device in the line — with more than one million units produced, according to the company.
The device’s design has already been leaked by the @OnLeaks Twitter profile, with a rectangular module to accommodate the three rear lenses and two LED flashes. On the front, the screen will have a hole to accommodate the selfie camera, located in the upper left corner. The Realme GT Neo 2 may have a gradient color design, as well as a dark gray option. In addition, the SIM card slot, USB-C port, primary microphone and speaker are on the bottom, while the volume buttons are on the left, and the power button on the right.
