Design and Display
We pretty much have the same system going with the design on both smartphones. Their rear and front placements are basically the same. However, they have colour options that set them apart from each other.
Speaking on colour first, we have three, we have three colour variants here that include Black, Silver, and Aurora, as opposed to Gold / Black, Blue, and Silver on the regular GT.
Perusing the rear design, we discover the prominent stripe that runs through the left side of the rear panel reminisced from the Regular GT. However, the stripe runs through to the top, unlike the Regular GT whose stripe doesn’t get to the top of the camera module.
Also on the rear, is the Realme branding and the square camera module bearing three cameras and an LED flash.
Flipping this Android smartphone to get a front view reveals a 6.43-inch Super AMOLED display with a punch-hole camera on the top left corner of the display. The highlights of this display include a resolution of [email protected], a density of 409 PPI, and a 90Hz refresh rate, which pretty much sums up the package on the former.
The Realme GT Neo’s camera setup also falls in the reminiscence space, bearing the same cameras as seen on the Regular GT.
On the rear, we have an array of three cameras that include a 64MP primary camera with an aperture of f/1.8, an 8MP ultrawide camera with an aperture of f/2.3, and a 119˚ field of view.

Upfront, we have a single 16MP camera with an aperture of f/2.5. Video recording on this camera is capped at 1080p @ 30fps.
Hardware and Software

Also on the performance train are RAM and storage options that include 128GB 6GB RAM, 128GB 8GB RAM, 256GB 12GB RAM, a non-removable 4500mAh battery paired with 50W charging, as opposed to 65W on the regular GT.
On the software side, we have the Realme UI 2.0 user interface running on the Android 11 operating system.
