At this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC 2022) that happened in Barcelona, Spain, Realme finally did a global unveiled the GT 2 and GT 2 Pro set of smartphones – although, this smartphone series was first unveiled in China weeks ago.
Realme’s popularity in the smartphone industry – over the years – can be attributed to the fact that its smartphones are relatively affordable and feature high-end specs. However, with the introduction of the Realme GT 2 Pro – Realme’s first step into the premium flagship market – we’re not so sure it can maintain its reputation for affordability. This new smartphone series will be competing with the likes of OnePlus 10 Pro, Samsung’s Galaxy S22 and OPPO’s Find X4.
