The Realme GT Neo2 was introduced back in September, and just four weeks later we are going to see a follow-up. The smartphone maker scheduled a launch for October 19 when it will unveil the Realme GT Neo2T smartphone – a new device, designed in collaboration with streetwear and sports equipment company Li-Ning.
We are confident this is a new phone because multiple rumors revealed it will be powered by a Dimensity 1200 chipset – a 6nm platform with a marginally powerful CPU, compared with the Snapdragon 870 inside the Neo2.
Alleged Realme GT Neo2T back panel design
One leakster suggested the back design will imitate a motherboard, while the Realme CMO has said the partnership with Li Ning will “be a crossroad of new design processes”. We have no idea what that would mean in terms of actual looks, but such collaboration is a big deal for Realme.
Li Ning is a former gymnast with three gold medals from the 1984 Summer Olympics. He now owns a sports equipment company that has endorsed basketball stars like Shaquille O’Neal, Dwayne Wade, and Jimmy Butler.
