Realme’s GT series has always been about speed, and the all-new GT 3 doesn’t disappoint. The Realme GT 3 supports 240W wired charging, making it the world’s fastest charging flagship, according to Realme. The new smartphone was announced at MWC 2023 in Barcelona and we managed to get our hands on the device for a little while, so here are our first thoughts on it.


The Realme GT 3 has a flat screen and an AG glass back panel with aluminum sides. The back of the smartphone has a matte texture that repels fingerprints and has curved edges. There’s Realme branding at the bottom, followed by the camera module and a clear glass window right next to it at the top. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC is visible through the glass, and there’s an RGB LED notification panel that Realme calls Pulse Interface.

Realme GT 3 is available in two color options, Pulse White and Booster Black

Realme GT 3’s Pulse interface is one of the unique features of this smartphone. The RGB LED lights up when the smartphone is charging, in case of low battery, for incoming notifications, etc. The LED color can be changed in the settings to your preference.

The smartphone sports a triple rear camera setup with a 50-megapixel Sony IMX890 primary camera, followed by an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera, a 2-megapixel microscope camera, and flash. For the front camera, the Realme GT 3 uses a 16-megapixel sensor.

The side rails of the Realme GT 3 have a matte finish, with the power button on the right and the volume buttons on the left. The Type-C charging connector, speaker grill, SIM card slot, and microphone are all positioned at the bottom of the smartphone, and an IR blaster and second microphone are located at the top.

The 240W power adapter is said to use three different chipsets to handle high-power charging

Realme is focusing on the GT 3’s 240W super fast charging capability. The 240W adapter comes in the box and allows the GT 3 to charge from 0-20% in 80 seconds, from 0-50 % in four minutes and 0-100% in just 9.5 minutes, depending on the brand. Realme claims that the GT 3’s 4,600mAh battery can provide a standby time of up to 21 days.

For anyone having heating issues, Realme claims to have fixed this issue by using a stainless steel cooling system along with software changes to ensure safer charging.

Realme GT 3 runs on Realme UI 4.0

The Realme GT 3 sports a 6.74-inch 144Hz AMOLED display with a resolution of 1.5K (2772 x 1240 pixels). In my limited use, the screen looked bright enough and produced decent colors. The smartphone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC which is more than capable in handling graphically intense games and demanding applications. The phone runs Realme UI 4.0 based on Android 13.

The Realme GT 3 is definitely a unique product that should appeal to someone looking for super fast charging in their next smartphone. It also offers decent specs and the appearance of this smartphone is quite premium. Let us know what you think of the GT 3 in the comments.
