Realme isn’t hanging about when it comes to launching new smartphones, and that includes the incredible charging speeds offered on the new GT Neo 3 and GT Neo 3T models.
The Realme GT Neo 3 brings 150W charging to the UK for the first time, while the cheaper GT Neo 3T offers up 80W charging – still fast by anyone’s standards (and this is from a company that has been utilising 65W charging technology for some considerable time).
The company has also launched a Dragon Ball Z variant in select European markets, as well as a new colour variant for the Buds Air 3 earphones.

GT NEO 3 – World’s fastest charging smartphone with 150W
Inspired by motor racing and the true story of legendary driver Carroll Shelby, who painted track stripes on a high-end sports car to express his passion for speed and belief in rewriting history in 1965, realme GT NEO 3 flauntsthe legend racing design with stripes on the back of the phones in three colourways: Nitro Blue, Sprint White, and Asphalt Black, paying tribute to the speed legends.
The spirit of speed also extends from design to performance as realme is disrupting the smartphone charging experience with 150W Ultradart charge, achieving 50% charge in 5 minutes. With 38 layers of safety protection and a dedicated MCU charging security chip, the device offers a high level of security and is certified by TÜV Rheinland for Safe Fast-Charge System. Furthermore, realme GT NEO 3 boasts a battery capacity retention of at least 80% after 1600 complete charge and discharge cycles, twice the industry standard, extending battery life and improving the longevity of the device for users.
The first Mediatek Dimensity 8100 5G Mobile Platform
GT NEO 3 is the first smartphone powered by Dimensity 8100 Mobile Platform in Europe. Based on TSMC’s 5nm manufacturing process, GT NEO 3 features four CortexA78 cores running at 2.85GHz and four CortexA55 cores running at 2.0GHz, delivering higher CPU efficiency and achieving an impressive and stable 90 fps.
The new flagship device is equipped with a 6.7-inch AMOLED panel with Full HD+ resolution and a high refresh rate of 120 Hz with HDR 10+ certification. GT NEO 3 uses the new generation COP packaging process, which has the potential to further shorten the chin in future products. Implemented in the GT NEO 3, the screen-to-body ratio has reached an impressive 94.2% with ultra-narrow bezels: 1.48mm (side)/1.84mm (top)/2.37mm (bottom).
Moreover, the graphics are extremely smooth and the pictures are high-quality thanks to the independent chip display chip. Specifically, the trajectory of on-screen object motion is estimated by the chip using a unique algorithm and a motion compensation frame is added between two existing frames, enhancing the smoothness of the picture and overall viewing experience. With these specifications, GT NEO 3 goes beyond a standard smartphone and becomes a dedicated device that is also excellent for gamers and streamers alike.
Wide-angle triple camera with exclusive Street Photography Mode
The realme GT NEO 3 is equipped with a triple-camera system, in which the main camera uses Sony IMX 766 50MP sensor. The other two cameras are a 119° 8MP ultra-wide lens and a 2MP 4cm macro lens. This combination makes it easy for users, both photography amateurs and pros to take vivid high-quality photos, capturing memorable moments with family and friends.
With these features, GT NEO 3 is a must-have device for tech lovers, especially young users. The smartphone delivers futuristic cutting-edge technologies and a fashionable design for an all round flagship device.

GT NEO 3T is the fastest charging smartphone in the segment, featuring 80W SuperDart Charge and a massive 5000mAh battery, charging 50% in 12 minutes. Compared to GT NEO 2T, GT NEO 3T has been significantly upgraded from the former’s 65W fast charging speed, bringing higher charging efficiency and safer discharge.
The favourite chipset for luxury smartphones – the Snapdragon 870 5G enables the device to adapt to use-cases, including working, studying, entertaining, and, most impressively, high FPS gaming. The GT NEO 3T display features a 6.62-inch E4 AMOLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate with Full-HD+ resolution.
