In February, the Realme GT Neo5 was unveiled as the world’s first phone with 240W charging. The handset came equipped with an impressive C-shaped RGB light unit on the back, which glows when there is a notification. Despite its impressive features, it still debuted as an affordable flagship phone powered by the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chipset. Today, the brand has unveiled the Realme GT Neo5 SE as a toned-down version of the GT Neo 5.
