Realme’s GT Neo5 Phone Can Do Zero To 20% Charge In 80 Seconds

Interestingly, a 5,000mAh variant of the GT Neo5 is also available, with prices ranging from 2,499 yuan ($370; 8GB RAM and 256GB storage) to 2,899 yuan ($430; 16GB RAM and 256GB storage).

Remember the Redmi phone, which had a whopping 210W charging capacity? Another Chinese contender has followed suit with a 240W upgrade.

The Realme GT Neo5’s 4,600mAh dual-cell battery can apparently be charged from 0% to 20% in 80 seconds, 50% in four minutes, and 100% in 9.5 minutes. Given the smaller 4,300mAh battery, this actually beats the Redmi Note 12 Discovery Edition’s 9-minute record in terms of mAh-per-minute.

Realme’s 240W SuperVOOC rapid charging is made possible by a surprisingly small dual-GaN power adapter that works in tandem with a proprietary high-current USB-C cable to deliver 20V/12A of power.

This is then converted to 10V/24A by three 100W power management chips before reaching the battery, which is similar to the Redmi implementation.

The adapter is also USB-PD compatible at up to 65W, as well as Qualcomm QC and Oppo VOOC-based solutions — the latter’s previous record was 150W. Realme also claimed that even after 1,600 cycles (roughly four years of use), the battery health would not fall below 80%.

Realme’s GT Neo5 has a neat little gimmick on the back: an under-glass Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 decoration surrounded by an RGB light ring that can be customised with 25 different colours for scenes such as charging, gaming, messages, and more.

All of this is centred on NFC circuitry located to the right of the camera island. In addition, a 50-megapixel main camera (with a Sony IMX890 sensor and optical stabilisation), an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera, and a 2-megapixel macro camera are included.

On the other hand, there’s a 6.74-inch 2,772 x 1,240 Tianma AMOLED screen that not only runs at up to 144Hz but also has a sensitive 1,500Hz touch sampling rate — a plus for mobile gaming.

An under-display fingerprint reader and a 16-megapixel punch-hole selfie camera round out the package.

Other notable features include a top-mounted infrared remote blaster (common on Chinese phones), stereo speakers, and an 8-layer heat dissipation design for optimal gaming performance.

All of this is housed in a 199g-heavy, 8.9mm-thick body that comes in black, white, or purple and is mostly covered with frosted glass on the backside.

The Realme GT Neo5 is already available in China, with two variants available: the model with 16GB RAM and 256GB storage costs 3,199 yuan (approximately $470), while the model with 1TB storage costs 3,499 yuan (approximately $520).

According to Realme, the GT Neo5 will be available in international markets “soon.” The 240W SuperVOOC feature will be introduced to the global market later this month with the company’s upcoming flagship phone, the Realme GT3. This smells like an MWC special.
