Realme GT5 is to debut on August 28, and today, the brand revealed more details about the upcoming flagship on Weibo. We already knew will be powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, but today we have a confirmation it will be the base 3.2 GHz version of the Qualcomm platform and not the overclocked version used by Samsung and ZTE.
The premium device will also have a mighty variant with 24GB RAM and 1 TB storage – a combo that is becoming more prevalent in new flagships, particularly in China.

A teaser on Weibo also revealed a X7 display chip by Pixelworks to improve video quality.
The Realme GT5 chipset is not a big surprise, but the option for users to adjust the CPU clock levels is a real rarity and the first to offer such granular controls. Leaked screenshots revealed an interface where all three clusters could have their speeds adjusted independently. Realme confirmed the feature hours later through a separate post on Weibo.

The device will arrive on Monday, but we also expect to see a Pro variant later this year with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset. The big question is which of these devices will escape the domestic market and whether all the neat features that are teased to the domestic crowd will be available internationally. We hope to have the answers soon.
