Original article, November 29, 2021 (11:00 AM ET): Realme is well-known for delivering low-priced phones with decent specs and interesting designs. However, even the most premium devices from the company aren’t true flagships, since they always compromise on some aspect of the specs or design.

The upcoming Realme GT 2 Pro will change that. According to Sky Li — the founder and CEO of Realme — the GT 2 Pro will be the company’s “first and most premium flagship phone.”

Unfortunately, Li didn’t divulge any specs or other info on the phone. Thanks to Steve Hemmerstoffer and 91Mobiles, though, we have some leaked information on the device. You can see a set of leaked renders above, and below you’ll find information on rumored specs.

Realme GT 2 Pro leaked specs

According to the leaked specs, the GT 2 Pro could have the 2022 flagship processor from Qualcomm. Previously known as the Snapdragon 898, this new processor will be the first with a new naming scheme.

The Realme GT 2 Pro could also have a 6.8-inch OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and a QHD+ (1440p) resolution. On the back, the phone could have the premium trifecta: a 50MP primary sensor, a 50MP ultra-wide, and an 8MP telephoto lens.

Those are the specs trusted leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer has released. However, earlier leaked reports suggest the phone could have up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, a 32MP selfie shooter, and 125W wired charging speeds. Those specs don’t come from Hemmerstoffer, though, so treat them with a higher degree of skepticism.

Finally, Hemmerstoffer posits the phone could cost around $799. This would make the GT 2 Pro the most expensive phone from the company yet.
