The Realme GT range stands out for offering premium features for a fraction of the price. These phones do it so well that they're sometimes available for our top Android phones and even top phone lists, which is why we're looking forward to the Realme GT 3.

We may not have to wait long either, as this powerful phone could land as early as 2023. Below, we'll take a closer look at its likely release date and possible price, as well as what little we've heard about its specs and features. . .

As soon as we know more, we'll add it to this article, but in the meantime, you'll also find a list of things to look forward to the most from the Realme GT 3.

Realme GT 3: release date and price

We don't know when the Realme GT 3 will launch, but it seems likely that it will be early 2023, given that the Realme GT 2 was announced in January 2022 and the original Realme GT landed in March 2021.

With most phones launching around a year after their predecessors, our best guess is January 2023, but in the early months of the year it seems very likely anyway.

We don't yet know how much the Realme GT 3 will cost, but the Realme GT 2 started at €499 (around £660, AU$885), so a similar price is possible.

But as you'll see in the price conversions there, the older model wasn't available everywhere, so while the Realme GT 3 - and all its siblings like the Realme GT 3 Pro - will likely be coming to the UK, we're less sure. over other regions.

Realme GT 3: news and leaks

There's not much news about the Realme GT 3 yet, but the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 has been announced, and while Realme hasn't confirmed that it will use this chipset in future phones, it's likely that, like the Realme GT 2 Pro, it used the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. , a year ago.

So we think there's a good chance that the Realme GT 3 Pro will use Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, though going by the way above, the standard Realme GT 3 could be stuck with an older chipset, possibly the 8 Gen 1 or the 8 Plus Gen 1.

The new Gen 2 is likely to be the most powerful chipset we'll see in Android phones for at least the first half of 2023, so the Realme GT 3 Pro won't be left out if it uses this silicon.

what we want to see

As good as the Realme GT 2 is, scoring 4,5 stars in our review, there is always room for improvement, so with the Realme GT 3 we want to see the following things.

1. Best secondary cameras

The main camera on the Realme GT 2 is excellent, but we found the ultra-wide midrange and macro to be downright poor, so there's definitely room for improvement here on the Realme GT 3.

We'd like to see real improvements to the ultra-wide camera, and ideally the macro snapper is replaced with a telephoto one or simply removed, so Realme can focus on delivering two really good cameras.

2. More refined software

While the Realme GT 2's interface is generally clean and customizable, it's not as polished as we'd like and suffered from a number of bugs during our review.

This lack of attention to detail was disappointing, and while improvements may have been made since launch, we'd like to see a clean, bug-free interface from day one on the Realme GT 3.

3. Improved battery life

The Realme GT 2 doesn't have terrible battery life, but it's not great either, especially when using a 120Hz refresh rate, which you'll probably want to do if you've shelled out for a phone with this feature.

So we'd like to see improvements there for the Realme GT 3. The good news is that this could be easily achieved, because at 4500mAh, the Realme GT 2's battery isn't huge, so there should be room for a bigger one. in the following model.

4. Wireless charging

While the Realme GT 2 charges at a respectable 65W when plugged in, it doesn't charge wirelessly at all, which is a shame for a phone that has other top-of-the-line specs and features.

This omission is likely one of the ways Realme has kept costs down, and the relatively affordable price is one of the GT 2's biggest selling points, so we'd like to see it continue. But if it is also possible to add wireless charging to the Realme GT 3, we would also like it.

5. Water resistance

Another possible cost-cutting measure comes from the lack of a water resistance rating on the Realme GT 2, but while it's not a very expensive phone, it's still pretty expensive, so we'd like to be sure it can survive. to a splash

So hopefully the Realme GT 3 will have water resistance, especially since it's now a fairly common feature on mid-range and higher-end phones. This is definitely a feature that would help Realme GT 3 stand out from its predecessors and rank among the best Realme phones.
