Realme wanted to hit hard this year and offer its first real flagship. After many leaks, the Chinese brand presented yesterday the Realme GT 2 Pro. The flagship stands out in particular for its fairly solid technical record and its aggressive price. It is positioned as a real challenger for the title of the best value for money of 2022.
Realme GT 2 Pro: An eco-friendly design
The Realme GT 2 Pro wants to be an ecological smartphone. This can be seen in the design, which although it does not look like the one we expected, is still quite successful in my opinion. The brand partnered with Naoto Fukasawa (a famous Japanese designer) to produce the industry's first biopolymer smartphone back, which is "based on the sustainable concept of paper art". In reality, this just means that the back feels like paper and is made of a sustainable biopolymer material grown in a lab, reducing the carbon footprint of the smartphone.
