Chinese smartphone firm realme launched the brand-new GT Neo series in March of last year. This morning, Chase Xu, Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer at realme, posted on domestic social media platform Weibo that “in the past year, the cumulative users of the realme GT Neo series have exceeded 2 million. The series will continue releasing new models in the future.”
In addition, Chase Xu announced that the company’s GT Neo series will undergo a major upgrade, “becoming a more extreme and trendy flagship featuring designer elements and e-sports.”
Talking about the reasons for upgrading the positioning of the realme GT Neo series, Chase Xu pointed out that e-sports has become a trendy lifestyle among young people. Nearly half of realme users are e-sports lovers, which is much higher than the industry average. Xu said that realme has found a new field that can allow its GT Neo series to achieve rapid development and surprise its users, “that is, to create a more extreme e-sports experience for young people.”
In addition, realme announced on March 7 that it had reached a deep cooperation arrangement with the Honor of Kings National Competition and became the chief partner of the competition.
At this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC), realme announced that its GT Neo will offer industry-leading 150W UltraDart fast charging that refills 50% of the phone’s battery in just five minutes. At the same time, the GT Neon3 will also be equipped with MediaTek Dimensity 8100 processor in the first batch. With the optimization of gaming experiences, MediaTek Dimensity 8100 will bring the true GT Neo3 a more extreme e-sports experience.
