If you have been following realme, the company has just announced the realme GT Master Edition series in China. Most of the previous leaks and rumours turned out to be true as there is also a new realme GT Explorer Master Edition. Here is everything you need to know about the master edition series.

As previously suggested, the realme GT Explorer Master Edition features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 chipset alongside an 8GB or 12GB of RAM which goes up to 19GB thanks to the additional 7GB virtual RAM. There are two memory variants which are 128GB and 256GB of storage as well as four colour models in grey, apricot, snow mountain (white) and dawn. The triple rear camera consists of a 50MP (main, OIS) + 16MP (ultrawide) + 4MP (macro) lens, whereas the front camera is 32MP.

The Explorer Master Edition features a 6.5-inch AMOLED display that supports a 120Hz refresh rate and (an overkill) 480Hz touch sampling rate. The display also supports HDR10+ so that would be great for a viewing experience. In addition, the battery pack is 4500mAh with 65W fast charging technology.
