Realme has nailed it – the Realme GT Neo3 was showered with love in last week’s poll, where 80% of the votes were in its favor. We rarely see a phone be favored so strongly. Its predecessor, the GT Neo2, actually got a slightly negative result at the polls.
The Neo3 appears to be a success in its home market already, after selling 100,000+ units on launch day. It’s not clear which of the two versions – 4,500 mAh battery/150W charging or 5,000 mAh battery/80W charging – was more popular. The 80W one is certainly cheaper (CNY 2,000 vs. CNY 2,700).
Price is something that will determine the level of success of the GT Neo3 globally. Unfortunately, Realme hasn’t announced its plans for a rollout to new markets just yet. The outgoing GT Neo2 is €450 in Europe, so we expect to see the new model in the same price range.
Meanwhile, it looks like the OnePlus 10R will be nearly identical to the Realme GT Neo3. Alas, we haven’t heard anything about the pricing on the 10R either.
