While Realme hasn't detailed the GT 5G's specs, its VP Mr. Xu Qi Chase posted a screenshot of the phone's AnTuTu results on Weibo with a score of 770,221, which is about 35,000 more than what Qualcomm's reference device with Snapdragon 888 achieved.

However, soon after Mr. Chase shared the benchmark results, AnTuTu posted a screenshot showing the Realme GT 5G scored 688,602 points in its tests, which is in line with what the Snapdragon 888-powered Xiaomi Mi 11 achieved in our tests.

AnTuTu said that's the only score they found in their system and contacted Realme seeking clarity on the issue. In response, Realme said the GT 5G unit with a sub-700k AnTuTu score may be an early R&D device and they ran several AnTuTu tests on the phone, all achieving results of over 700,000 points.

Last December, we exclusively reported that Realme GT 5G will come with Android 11, 12GB RAM, and 256GB storage. That bit is corroborated by the screenshot AnTuTu shared today, which also revealed the smartphone will pack a 120Hz display.
