Realme slipped up and accidentally revealed the European price for the Realme GT 5G. No, it’s not €400, the real price is €550. This is for the 12/256 GB version, available only in Racing Yellow (China also received a more affordable 8/128 GB variant).
Okay, so that’s pricier than initially hoped, but this will still make the GT the cheapest Snapdragon 888-powered smartphone in Europe.
The Realme GT 5G page that appeared on Realme’s EU site
The page on realme.com (now removed) notes that the phone will be shipped only to Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Portugal. But that’s a limitation of the online store, other Realme models have similar restrictions. It should be fairly easy to find someone to re-ship the phone for you within the EU or a local retailer in other countries in the zone.
A few days ago CEO Madhav Sheth tweeted that the Realme GT will be available globally (including India and Thailand) this month with a camera-focused flagship set to follow in July. Unfortunately, the product page for the GT did not list the exact date when shipments will begin.
By the way, a few days ago we received a Realme GT 5G unit to review, so our detailed examination is coming soon.
