At the technology summit held by Qualcomm in early December, a number of manufacturers announced that they would bring flagship mobile phones equipped with a new generation of Snapdragon 8 processors. The most critical word is to grab the first one, because no one will remember the second one. Who is realme, but realme is very interesting. Its global marketing president Xu Qi said: “It’s wonderful, I’ll leave it to you to starters. If everything goes well, realme will become the second mobile phone brand in the world to release the #新Snapdragon8# flagship” .
Compared with the various first and first batches, this world’s second-ranked title seems to be brilliant with a self-deprecating mentality. Although it was finally cut off by moto’s new machine and became the world’s third-ranked, but according to the release within a month. Judging from the speed of the four new Snapdragon 8 phones (and the iQOO9 series on January 5th), the global debut and ranking seem to be less important.
People who want to buy will definitely not buy a new phone of another brand because of a few days in advance, but will wait a few more days to buy the brand they have been buying. This is not a problem of brand loyalty. But it is completely unnecessary to have to re-adapt to the operation of the new system a few days in advance.
The first launch is not important, and it is not important who is the first. The price, appearance and the focus of the product are the direction users go to buy.
The specific configuration parameters of Realme GT2 Pro are as follows:
The outer packaging box is a classic design of realme. The author received the highest matching Maestro Mori version, which is the green version of Maestro paper, 12+256G. On the front of the box, there is Naoto Fukasawa, chief designer of MUJI. sign.
The charging head, data cable, three-pack manual and mobile phone case are randomly included in the box. Although it seems to be against the theme of “environmental protection”, in fact, realme has achieved environmental protection without reducing the packaging box. To a greater extent than Apple.
Realme GT2 Pro adopts environmentally friendly packaging, the proportion of plastic in the entire packaging box is only 0.3%, and the fonts on the packaging also use low-toxicity, high repeatability, and biodegradable soybean ink. Open the upper packaging carton, A line of words is also clearly engraved on the box of the three packs of cards.
“A piece of paper is a new generation of science and technology”, and the following is a line of small characters “A bio-based material extracted from paper and certified by ISCC for environmental protection, this time, it is applied to the back shell of the real me GT2 series Master Paper and Master Sen” .
On the front screen, the Realme GT2 Pro is equipped with a 6.7-inch Samsung AMOLED straight screen with a single-hole design in the upper left corner, a resolution of 3216×1440, 525PPI, 1 billion color display, 100% P3 wide color gamut, support 120Hz refresh rate and 1000Hz smart instant touch, it also supports LTPO 2.0, which can identify the software frame rate in real time, quickly and accurately, and make the best hardware refresh rate. When you are on Weibo, it is 120Hz when you swipe. When you stop to look at a picture, it will instantly decrease to 1Hz at a speed of 75ms, and then when you swipe again, the screen will be refreshed quickly within 75ms. The rate is increased to 120Hz, the whole process is very fast and almost imperceptible, and the benefit it brings is that it can save 50% of power consumption and prolong the use time of the mobile phone.
In addition, this screen has also received a DisplayMate A+ rating, and is outstanding in a series of dimensions such as clarity, brightness, and color standard. Its border adopts a new seamless connection process, which eliminates the problem of screen brackets and makes The width of the phone is only 1.68mm, which is very rare for a straight screen.
In the past two years, flagship mobile phones have basically used curved or micro-curved screens due to positioning problems. It seems to be more advanced and can also increase the price of mobile phones, but it is actually not good for the actual experience, especially in terms of games. If it is a waterfall screen with a curvature of nearly 90°, it is almost disastrous, and the appearance of the real GT2 Pro solves this problem in the market, why does Android phone not have a top straight screen?
When you see the real me GT2 Pro, the answer is there, he is the top straight screen on that Android phone, and, most likely, the only one this year.
On the rear lens, the Realme GT2 Pro uses a combination of three-camera lenses. The three lenses are a 50-megapixel Sony IMX776 OIS main camera, a 1/1.56-inch outsole, and support OIS and EIS dual image stabilization; 50-megapixel Samsung JN1 ultra-wide-angle lens, the world’s first 150° long wide-angle, supports fisheye photo mode; microscope lens 2.0, supports 40x magnification, upgraded 4 times depth of field, upgraded 4.7mm object distance, and the world’s first skin quality detection function (subsequent OTA required).
Compared with other flagship manufacturers who are looking for outsole and joint names, realme is very smart in using playable lenses as a way of confrontation on the GT2 series, because professional photography may require learning costs, and you can pick up a mobile phone. Anyone can get started quickly by taking a few pictures and playing.
Fisheye lenses have been available in some mobile apps for a long time, but this is the first time that they are native ones, and the 150° ultra-wide angle can accommodate more pictures, which may have some unexpected effects when shooting some super-large scenes Presentation; Needless to say about the microscope lens, in addition to verifying the arrangement and combination of the screen, realme also added a skin quality detection function to him, making the microscope not only playable but also practical. See more new stuff on this lens.
The last thing I want to talk about is the material of the back cover of the realme GT2 Pro. In my opinion, the efforts made by Realme on the back cover this time really made me feel some admiration.
There was a preview meeting before the official release. Realme detailed what the bio-based material back shell of GT2 Pro is and what role it plays in environmental protection: Bio-based is known as the key to the future of green environmental protection, and it is extracted from pulp, etc. Bio-based materials with renewable raw materials can reduce carbon emissions by up to 63%. They have passed extremely stringent environmental regulations and standards such as ISCC international sustainable development and carbon certification, and are recognized as excellent future-oriented environmentally friendly materials.
Realme introduced new bio-based materials, and passed complex processes and strict reliability tests, so that Realme GT2 Pro has a sturdy and stable appearance and structural design.
To put it bluntly, realme processed the material originally used as paper and used it on the back shell of the mobile phone, and this material can not only reduce carbon emissions, but also be completely recyclable, and under this premise, its various In terms of performance, it has reached the level of traditional materials, taking into account stability and environmental protection, and adding natural materials to technology.
There is also an easter egg here. If you look closely at the packaging boxes of the two models of the GT2 Pro Master Edition, the texture and feel are the same as the back shell of the fuselage, which means that they are made of the same material. When you get the two mobile phones, Maestro Paper and Maestro Sen, environmental protection has already started from the box.
Having said that, let’s recall how Apple is environmentally friendly. Cut off your headphone jack, cut off your charging head, and cut off the plastic film of your box. How does realme be environmentally friendly? The proportion of plastic in the packaging box is only 0.3%, the biodegradable soybean ink, the bio-based back shell of renewable raw materials, the environmental protection of the manufacturer should not be done at the expense of the original income of the user, but should start from itself, although the mobile phone Apple took the lead in environmental protection at first, but in terms of environmental protection, Apple is dwarfed by realme this time.
On the system, the realme GT2 series is pre-installed with the new realme UI 3.0 (based on Android 12) from the factory. This system was released in October last year. As a flagship mobile phone equipped with the new generation of Snapdragon 8, the Realme GT2 series will naturally not. miss.
Because there are many key points involved in the system, here I only pick the one that I have used deeply in the experience process, that is GT 3.0.
Realme’s mobile phones have always been excellent in terms of price/performance ratio, and gameplay is also a major feature. The new GT mode 3.0 brings three major upgrades:
1. Support one-click GT for desktop cards (that is, the desktop can be opened quickly)
2. Bottom-level scheduling optimization: GPU heterogeneous rendering, AI stable frame rate technology, and insensitive frame reduction in extreme temperature rise and fall scenarios
3. The scene is extended to video, one-click to open GT video enhancement
The first point is actually to give a switch that can quickly turn on GT on the desktop. This is a quick entry. The latter two are more critical. One focuses on games and the other focuses on videos.
The most obvious experience of the author is AI frame stabilization technology 2.0. Turn on GT mode, and then swipe in the upper left corner to select AI frame stabilization. Even a super-large map like “Genshin Impact” can ensure that the picture is more stable during the game. At the same time, it also performs well in the high-intensity battle scenes of playing in the big world and brushing the abyss. The most intuitive point is that only from my naked eye experience, I did not feel any frame drops or instability during the game. More importantly, in this case, the heat of the mobile phone is not too much, it is just warm, which is very rare.
In terms of video, the Realme GT2 series already supports Dolby Atmos, and the addition of GT video also brings HDR video color enhancement, MEMC video dynamic pins and network acceleration, which not only enriches the picture on the video, but also makes it easier to follow the video. The music that appears on the screen is more beautiful, and the integration of sound and picture is the most high-end enjoyment. The quality of the screen of the realme GT2 series itself is already very good, and after the GT video enhancement is added, it is even more icing on the cake.
The current mobile phone operating systems are actually pretty much the same, and the struggle is to adjust the details, such as which one opens faster and which renders better. You must know that realme UI is derived from OPPO’s Coloro OS, and its foundation is not bad. , and after adding some targeted functions unique to brand users, users will like the experience of this UI even more.
3. Take pictures
In terms of taking pictures, the specific parameters of the three lenses of Realme GT2 Pro have been mentioned in the previous article, and I won’t repeat them here. In recent years, the competition for mobile phone photography has been too fierce. It’s a joint exclusive. Realme’s approach this time is very clever. It adds a 150° ultra-wide-angle lens and a microscope lens to the mobile phone. The former can bring the photo effect of fisheye mode, and the latter can let players watch. In a different “small” world, realme feels that, compared to the telephoto and wide-angle, which may be used occasionally, the innovation in the lens gameplay seems to stimulate the user’s desire to take pictures.
Let’s look at the proofs directly. The proofs of the real GT2 Pro during the day are as follows. The photos are only compressed in size, and the pictures are not adjusted by any modification.
As can be seen from the proofs, the heaviness of the gray cracked tree trunk and the lightness of the reeds floating in winter complement each other. Every subject to be photographed can make you feel its beauty in the picture, and then there are the details, the edge of the trunk. The texture of the reeds and the blur of the little reed leaves are handled very well. Let’s say that the scenery I see from the proofs is far more profound than what I can see with the naked eye.
The telephoto end of the Realme GT2 Pro only supports up to 5x digital zoom. Let’s look at its sample performance at different focal lengths.
150° super wide angle:
0.6x ultra wide angle:
The 150° ultra-wide-angle lens can indeed capture a larger field of view than 0.6 times after it is turned on, but at the same time it also has some negative effects. You can clearly see from the proofs that the grass on the right is already curved, so it is actually It is not very suitable for recording large-scale scene buildings, but it needs to be used in specific occasions to be effective, such as fisheye lenses.
The roads of some communities will have a circular mirror-like bright sign at the turning point of the intersection. The picture presented in this bright sign is similar to the picture taken by a fisheye lens. It has a larger field of view, allowing you to You can see more scenes on the left and right sides to avoid danger, and when you stand in the middle of this picture, you, as the central object, will appear more prominent, so when you use a fisheye lens to shoot the picture, Be sure to have a particularly noticeable subject first, and then position it in the center, like this:
In addition to the 150° ultra-wide angle and fisheye mode, Realme GT2 Pro also brings Microscope Lens 2.0, which can bring up to 40x magnification, and at the same time upgrade 4x depth of field to make the image clearer, this lens mode and gameplay are not realme The first, but still very high in playability, let’s look at the proofs:
The main body of these two proofs is the trunk part photographed above. The first one is 20 times magnification, and the second one is 40 times magnification. Under the 40 times microscope lens, the surface of the tree trunk with thousands of ravines has more With a heavy sense of picture, it presents a rock-like texture, as if telling the wind and sun that he has experienced.
In terms of night scenes, Realme GT2 Pro brings a new self-developed ProLight super-sensing technology this time, which supports intelligent multi-frame synthesis and intelligent noise recognition, which can bring better noise reduction capabilities. Sony IMX766 can take bright and pure night scene photos even in extremely dark scenes. We still upload the proofs:
The three night scene photos were shot with more than 90% pure black scenes. When the viewfinder was opened, the picture could not be seen clearly, but after clicking the shutter to take a photo, the photo presented by the Real GT2 Pro was still the same. It clearly presents the scenes in the night, and what is more gratifying is that it is not stupid enough to make the night into the day, but makes the night still have the attributes of the night.
As early as when Qualcomm held the launch of the new generation of Snapdragon 8 processor, realme had already given a notice that “if all goes well, realme will become the second mobile phone brand in the world to release the #新Snapdragon8# flagship. “Now it seems that although the first position of Lenovo’s moto cut Hu has been eliminated halfway, the Realme GT2 series has become the third mobile phone in the world to release the Snapdragon 8, but the time difference between the release of these three mobile phones is not long. It is only a week away from Xiaomi Mi 12, so who will be the first and who will be the first? Now it seems that the gimmick and importance are not enough. The most important thing is to see the new generation of Snapdragon 8 How is the adjustment.
Regarding the parameters and performance of the new generation of Snapdragon 8, everyone must have read it by heart.
After the actual test of AnTuTu V9, the 12+256G top version of the Realme GT2 Pro in the author’s hands has a running score of 1019611 points.
In terms of sub-scores, the CPU score is 238,600 points, the GPU score is 443,544 points, and the storage test score is 69,244 points, of which the read speed has reached 1910.9MB/s, and the write speed has reached 1322.4MB/s.
This generation of Snapdragon 8, the GPU running score can be said to have improved greatly. Even compared to the gaming phone with the highest running score last year, the GPU score has exceeded 13W+, which can be said to be even more powerful for the gaming experience. further.
It is said in the industry that the new Snapdragon 8 of this generation is still a fire dragon. In response to this situation, realme has also tried its best for many years. The machine is equipped with the Diamond Ice Core Cooling System Plus, and there are two major upgrades.
1. Plate-level heat dissipation area. Realme GT2 Pro has the largest cooling area in realme history, up to 36,761 mm², which is a 105% increase compared to the previous generation of cooling system; the tempered VC area is as high as 4,129 mm², a 30% increase compared to the previous generation model .
2. Upgrade the nine-layer heat dissipation structure. Including the super natural thermal conductivity of diamond gel, more efficient stainless steel VC and copper alloy back cover, the lineup is luxurious.
The actual experience effect brought to the author by these two upgrades is that it doesn’t seem to be that hot, especially when running a large game like “Genshin Impact”, the heat from the back of the phone is only normal temperature. It is far more acceptable than the hot hand of the Snapdragon 888.
5. Games and batteries
The realme GT2 Pro has a battery capacity of 5000mAh and supports 65W SuperDart flash charging. As the ancestral skill of the OPPO family, realme can be said to have completely enlarged this technology, from the entry level of more than 1000 to the flagship machine. can see its existence.
In terms of games, after the author played “Peace Elite” for 30 minutes, the remaining battery power dropped from 46% at the beginning to 37%. The battery consumption of Realme GT2 Pro is 9%, and the game picture quality and frame rate are currently the highest. Only smooth + limit can be turned on. This is because the author has not officially released the mobile phone when I get it, so the progress of the game manufacturer’s adaptation is still a little slow, and the frame rate of 90Hz will definitely be there. After all, this is the flagship machine.
Therefore, this battery consumption can be simply used as a reference. Users who get it to play games will definitely experience the highest picture quality and frame rate. After all, it has a top-level straight-screen Snapdragon. Dragon 8 flagship product.
In another game “Genshin Impact”, after 30 minutes of game time, the picture quality is all turned on to the highest and the limit and the 60Hz refresh rate, the remaining power display of Realme GT2 Pro dropped from 81% to 60%, and the power consumption was 21% .
To be honest, this battery consumption is a bit high, almost equivalent to the game phone I used to play “Genshin Impact” before, but it is better than that game phone because the heat control is really excellent. Last year, the back shell of the phone was popular with AG Glass, the high heat of the Snapdragon 888 will cause the AG glass to become very hot locally. Although the author has not tested it with a thermometer, it definitely exceeds the limit of human perception, so I often play games when using gaming phones. For a while, let it cool for a while.
It’s different now. The new generation of Snapdragon 8 may really be suppressed by realme’s cooling power. The warm heat allows you to experience the process of a game for a long time without worrying about being scalded, even if It is the only high power consumption, and realme also has a 65W fast charge as a supplement.
In the actual charging test, the remaining power consumption of the battery is 2%. Start charging. Use the 65W original charger set that comes with the box to charge. It takes a total of 30 minutes to fully charge the entire phone. Officially, it takes 33 minutes to fully charge 100 %, so this calculation, the data is also consistent.
It can be charged to 27% in 5 minutes, 44% in 10 minutes, and 64% in 15 minutes. The experience is also firmly in the first echelon. If you think it is slow, then I am here. Let me remind everyone that its battery capacity is 5000mAh, not 4500mAh.
The real me GT2 Pro mobile phone was promoted as a high-end flagship for young people. In fact, today’s young people really don’t buy those thousand-dollar phones. Young people are more willing to save money to buy one. It belongs to all aspects. Flagship performance products, and the brand must have a personality, not with the public, more importantly, you don’t know me when I take it out, but I am better than you in all aspects, even in environmental protection, I have done better than you Excellent, that’s what this generation’s True Me GT2 Pro does.
As a “small company” that has not been established for so many years, realme has always been very persistent in some things, such as cost-effectiveness, performance, and joint names. Each of these three items can make realme occupy this market. A place, it could have continued to guard its own market stably, but realme has added environmental protection factors that are valued by the world to the mobile phone in this generation of GT series. This pattern and market view prove that it has grown from a small The company is slowly going global.
