Realme GT2 goes official with paper-like back, Pro model adds SD 8 Gen 1

Michail, 04 January 2022

Realme went ahead and officially unveiled its long-awaited GT2 series. There are two phones - a vanilla GT2 model and the flagship GT2 Pro which brings the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset. There are several noteworthy developments here and we’ll start with the design.

Two of the colors on the GT2 models come with a specially developed bio-based polymer back material that mimics the feel of paper - a first on any smartphone. Naoto Fukusawa and Realme’s design studio were tasked with developing the new material and Realme claims it offers the same structural integrity as other fossil-based materials while saving up to 2KG CO2 per kilogram body weight.
