Realme GT Neo 2 has been launched in India. The new Realme phone is a successor to the Realme GT Neo that didn't come to India in its original form but was launched as Realme X7 Max in May. Realme GT Neo 2 features a 120Hz AMOLED display and includes triple rear cameras. The phone also comes with 5G connectivity, though Indian telecom operators are yet to launch their next-generation cellular network services in the country. Other key highlights of Realme GT Neo 2 include stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos support, 65W fast charging, and a Stainless Steel Vapour Cooling Plus heat-sink chamber for thermal management. Realme GT Neo 2 will compete against the likes of Samsung Galaxy M52, Mi 11X 5G, and Poco F3 GT.
