A couple of weeks after their Chinese debut, the Realme GT Master Edition has made its way to the Indian market. And as we confirmed earlier with Realme VP Mr. Madhav Sheth, the phone is coming to Nepal as well. Here, we will be discussing the key features, expected price, and availability of the Realme GT Master Edition series in Nepal.
Realme GT Master Edition Series Overview:
To note, the GT Master Edition series consists of one more phone in the Chinese market, which goes by “Realme GT Master Explorer Edition”. However, this one isn’t available in the Indian market yet.
Design and Display
Here, Realme GT Master Explorer Edition is the more premium of the two. It features a 6.55-inch curved Super AMOLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate. Similarly, GT Master Edition, on the other hand, features a smaller 6.43-inch Super AMOLED panel. The panel is void of any curves but retains the faster refresh rates.
As with other Master Edition phones in the past, Realme has once again joined hands with Naoto Fukasawa, a popular industrial designer. Fukasawa has taken inspiration from suitcases for these phones.
Thus, the rear panels on the two Master Edition phones have ridged patterns on a soft leather-like surface. If you want something more mainstream, you can always go with the frosted glass back as well.
Performance and Memory
In terms of performance, GT Master Explorer Edition also has an upper hand here. It is powered by Snapdragon 870, whereas GT Master Edition packs Snapdragon 778G. The latter has 8GB RAM paired with either 128GB or 256GB of internal storage whereas the Master Explorer Edition gets a 12GB RAM variant as well.
Moving on, the triple camera setup on GT Master Explorer Edition includes a 50MP Sony IMX766 sensor (with OIS), along with a 16MP ultrawide and a 2MP macro shooter. On the GT Master Edition, the primary camera is a 64MP sensor.
Similarly, the resolution of the ultrawide camera is also halved to 8MP, while it does retain the 2MP macro camera. Realme has included a 32MP Sony IMX615 selfie camera in both phones.
Rest of the specs
GT Master Explorer Edition is backed by a 4,500mAh battery, while the GT Master Edition has a smaller 4,300mAh cell. Both of them support 65W SuperDart fast charging. Regardless, only the Explorer Edition boasts dual speakers (with Hi-Res Audio) while neither of them carry a 3.5mm audio jack.
