The Realme GT 2 Master Explorer edition has been launched in China. Many brands have launched the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 powered flagship phones this month in the home market. The GT 2 Master Explorer, which replaces the original Realme GT Master Explorer, is Realme’s first phone powered by the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 mobile platform.

The “Master Edition” Realme phones are known for their exceptional designs. The Realme GT 2 ME has a plain leather back with a metal casing, which is fastened with rivets at the edges. Realme has collaborated with famous designer, Jae Jung, to design the GT 2 ME.

On the front, it has an AMOLED display with a centrally positioned punch-hole and slim bezels. The display is shielded by a layer of Gorilla Glass Victus. The device measures 161.3 x 74.3 x 8.2mm and weighs around 199 grams.
