New Delhi: Handset maker Realme on Thursday marked its foray into the premium segment with the launch of the much-awaited Realme GT 2 Pro in India which features a bio polymer design that has a paper-like texture and no other smartphone has had to date. The Realme GT 2 Pr arrives with a top-tier Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip, a 5,000mAh camera and a triple rear camera setup at the rear. The starting price of the smartphone is Rs 49,999 for the base model.

The Realme GT 2 Pro will go against the likes of Xiaomi 12 Pro (yet to be launched), the OnePlus 10 Pro, the Iqoo 9 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S22+.
