Realme GT is coming to India and much sooner than expected. In one of the latest tweets, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer hinted that the much-awaited Realme GT gaming smartphone will launch in the country, however, the release date hasn’t been confirmed. The gaming smartphone was launched in China in March this year with no information of its global release.
The tweet was shared soon after Google announced Android 12 at I/O 2021 virtual event on Tuesday. In the tweet, Realme India noted, “With our upcoming #realmeGT, we are among the first brands to support Android 12 Beta 1.” The fact that the tweet notes “upcoming Realme GT” makes the launch even more evident. Yet again, we are not sure about the launch date of the GT yet, but it should happen soon as the company claims to be among the firsts to bring Android 12 beta 1 to its phone.
While Realme hasn’t confirmed official details about the Realme GT launch yet, rumours suggest that the Realme GT Neo, the toned down version in the GT series, could be heading to India as Realme X7 Max. To recall, the launch of the Realme X7 Max was pushed due to COVID-19 situation in the country. The next launch date hasn’t been revealed yet.
