The much-anticipated Realme GT Neo 3 debuted in India and serves as the first example of a phone on the market with an impressive 150W fast charger.
Realme, first mocked at the company’s international launch of the company’s GT 2 series flagship phones at MWC 2022, tried to shout about the Neo 3’s head features, but did not elaborate on its design and accessories in the following weeks.
But a few weeks later, the phone is here in all its glory, filling in the picture that Realme first started taking in February. Here’s everything you need to know about the Realme GT Neo 3.
When will the Realme GT Neo 3 go on sale?
The Realme GT Neo 3 went on sale on March 22 in China and then on April 29 in India – the phone is currently on sale.
As for Europe, Realme has confirmed that the phone will go on sale on June 8, along with the previously unannounced GT Neo 3T. This is actually earlier than expected, as the brand had previously promised to enter the European market in the “first half of H2”.
China was lucky enough to get a special Naruto edition of the GT Neo 3, but in Europe there will be a Dragon Ball Z edition of the GT Neo 3T instead – but there are still few details about this model.
How much is the Realme GT Neo 3
Now that the GT Neo 3 is on sale in India, we have a better idea of the global price of the GT Neo 3, not one, but two options: one with a 150 W charger and the other with a relatively modest 80 W battery (and a larger 5000 mAh battery). There is also an exclusive Chinese model with up to 512 GB of memory.
- 8GB + 128GB, 80W charging = ₹36,999 (approx. $485/£385/€460)
- 8GB + 256GB, 80W charging = ₹38,999 (approx. $510/£410/€485)
- 12GB + 256GB, 150W charging = ₹42,999 (approx. $560/£450/€535)
- 12GB + 512GB, 150W charging = ¥3,199 (approx. $475/£380/€445/₹37,000)
Interestingly, although the GT Neo 3 is essentially the same phone, it is much cheaper than the OnePlus 10R – it starts at 38,999 yen and goes up to 43,999 yen. So, if you are not afraid to give up the OnePlus brand (and a slightly overclocked processor), the GT Neo 3 would definitely be a better buy.
What are the features of Realme GT Neo 3?
The main feature of the GT Neo 3 may be its 150W charging, but there is more to the phone.
The phone is equipped with a new Dimensity 8100 chipset from MediaTek.

This feature, which appears to be independent of GT Mode 3.0, is optimized to work with certain games (initially more than 20) and, as noted by GSMArena, the GT Neo 3 is also the official phone of Honor of Kings. National competition in China.
