realme last month announced its latest addition to the GT Master Series in China – the realme GT 2 Explorer Master Edition.
The smartphone boasts a brand-new master design and delivers flagship performance with the Snapdragon® 8+ Gen 1 Mobile Platform, LPDDR5X, as well as an all-new X7 Independent Display Chipset.
GT 2 Explorer Master Edition highlights
In more detail, the design of the GT 2 Explorer Master Edition is made in collaboration with realme Design Studio™ and Jae-Jung, a prominent fashion designer at The North Face, founder of Door, and previously a designer for Ralph Lauren.
According to the company, the design is inspired by the urban outdoor lifestyle, with the Wilderness variant featuring a one-of-a-kind yet classic Travel Trunk design.
It comes with an edge cover on four sides with a premium matte texture, metallic rivets as for a stronger design emphasis, and first-class, environmentally friendly, vegan leather back material to complete its retro look.
Under the design of the GT 2 Explorer Master Edition is the Snapdragon® 8+ Gen 1 SoC.
This processor is a 4nm TSMC processor, and the chipset delivers a 10% CPU performance boost, 30% less CPU/GPU power consumption, as well as a 15%-less overall SoC power consumption.
Doubling the smartphone’s performance, the device is equipped with an independent X7 Display Chipset, which offers high frame rate and high-definition picture quality while ensuring low latency and low power consumption.
The chipset supports up to 4x frame rate interpolation, which allows a 30fps picture to convert into a fluid 120fps picture. It also supports 10mms low latency picture quality while maintaining a low GPU workload.
Aside from that, the GT 2 Explorer Master Edition is also one of the first smartphones to sport a LPDDR5X RAM.
Combined with UFS 3.1, the smartphone offers a high power-consumption reduction of up to 30% in gaming and 25% in online video watching for a satisfying visual experience.
It also features HyperTouch Virtual Triggers that come with tactile feedback and notification light effects on the side of the phone.
The touch responses are made highly sensitive and have low latency, ensuring an uninterrupted gaming experience. Users can also customize the trigger as they prefer, be it MOBA gaming, FPS gaming, or open-world gaming.
Heat dissipation efficiency has also been maximized with the GT 2 Explorer Master Edition as it also comes built with a dual stainless-steel Vapor Chamber Max.
This chamber adopts two VC layers to cover the heating unit from both sides.
With a total cooling area of 4811mm², the phone’s heat dissipation efficiency improved 154% from the previous generation of the master series.
Last but not least, the realme GT 2 Explorer Master Edition features a built-in GaN Fet charging solution, which helps reduce 85% of heat dissipation for the charging unit when compared with the 4:1 Charge Pump solution.
It comes with a 100W UltraDart Charge and a massive 5,000mAh battery which realme claims is capable of juicing up an empty battery from 0 to 100% in 25 minutes.
