With a 64MP Primary Camera, 8GB of RAM, and more, the realme GT Master Edition comes with amazing specs at an affordable price.

From its standard call and text functions, the modern-day smartphone has become… well, smarter. To fit in these changing times, these pocket-sized devices have grown to include more features—like photography, gaming, and more. In fact, these add-ons have made smartphones essential for both work and leisure.

Thing is, there are many brands and models to choose from. And so, the real challenge lies in choosing the right smartphone for your needs.

Premium but affordable. In a competitive playing field, a smartphone that boasts of these two features will undoubtedly reign supreme. Touting itself as the Philippines’ number one smartphone brand as of the second quarter of 2021, smartphone brand realme is making waves in the tech scene by offering a smartphone that multi-faceted millennials, young professionals, gamers, and students will surely love.

Its name? The realme GT Master Edition.

Team Voyager Grey or Team Daybreak Blue

As naturally visual beings, appearance and design play a big role in choosing a smartphone. With design as one of the defining characteristics of the realme GT Master Edition, the brand offers 2 styles to fit the diverse market: a sleek and classy Voyager Grey or a fun and playful Daybreak Blue.

Designed by world-renowned industrial designer Naoto Fukusawa—a known figure behind brands like MUJI, Herman Miller, and many more—the Voyager Grey colorway showcases a suitcase design that gets its inspiration from the concept of travel and exploration. A sleek design for travel aficionados, go-getters, and more, this model is made with vegan leather—the first concave vegan leather in the industry, in fact—which replicates the horizontal grid of a suitcase.

On the other hand, the Daybreak Blue colorway variant of the realme GT Master Edition is a fun take on smartphone design. Inspired by the ever-changing, shimmering colors of dawn, this model uses Japan’s patented PICASUS technology—a nano-laminate coating that gives the phone a shiny, metallic, and holographic feel. It’s a perfect fit for a playful audience and for those who are more inclined to minimalist and light colors.

Amid dark and light choices, both colorways promise a slim and lightweight feel. The Voyager Grey measures 8.7mm and weighs 180g, while the Daybreak Blue comes in at 8mm thickness and weighs in at a lean 174g.

Premium Specs, Affordable Price

“realme’s new offerings represent some of the very best in technology—at a price that’s affordable and accessible to many Filipinos,” shares Austine Huang, realme Philippines’ VP for Marketing. “We look forward to helping the realme Squad in accomplishing their goals and achieving their full potential with the realme GT Master Edition.”

With the promise of #MasteryBeyondSpeed, the GT Master Edition showcases a powerful performance with the industry-leading Snapdragon 778G Processor, which allows for a smooth and seamless daily smartphone experience—whether for working, creating content, or mobile gaming. What’s more, the phone even comes with 5G connectivity, which is timely, as there are many emerging 5G mobile networks in the country.

And to satisfy the needs of a shutter-happy audience, the realme GT Master Edition includes a mighty 64MP Primary Camera and a 32MP Selfie Camera for all your photography and videography needs. And with it, you’re treated to 8GB RAM of supercharged performance, as well as two storage space options: 128GB or 256GB of internal storage.

Maximizing the Smartphone Experience

Going back to our inherent need for stunning visuals, the realme GT Master Edition showcases a clear and crisp display, as well as lively and vibrant colors, thanks to its 100% DCI-P3 color display. And for the growing gamer audience, the smartphone comes equipped with an industry-leading Samsung Super AMOLED display, a 120Hz screen refresh rate, and a 360Hz touch sampling rate. That way, you can enjoy lag-free visuals as you play your favorite online games.

Speaking of online games, the realme GT Master Edition is built to handle popular games like Mobile Legends, Genshin Impact, Axie Infinity, and many more. With its built-in Vapor Chamber Cooling System, you no longer have to worry about your smartphone overheating. Yes, this bonus feature reduces temperature from the phone’s heat sources in order to keep it performing consistently well.

And the best part? The phone charges quickly with its 65W SuperDart Charge technology, which means that all you need are 13 minutes to get your phone up to 50%! How amazing is that?

All these features—paired with a sleek appearance—goes to show that premium items don’t necessarily come with a hefty price tag. In fact, the realme GT Master Edition in 128GB is priced at PHP18,990, while the 256GB version goes for PHP21,990.

“These two products are truly the embodiment of our ‘premium affordable’ philosophy, and we can’t wait for everyone to experience them,” Huang ends.
