Realme teases 240W charging for its upcoming GT Neo5 smartphone
If Realme is using Oppo’s technology, which is quite possible considering they are both under the same corporate umbrella, the Realme battery would be expected to degrade by 20% after 800 charging cycles. This continues the innovation in charging that has come out of China. While some experts will tell you that fast charging does no damage to a phone’s battery, it does generate heat that makes your handset hotter than a PopTart right out of the toaster.
As a matter of comparison, the iPhone 14 Pro Max has a maximum fast charging speed of 27W (wired) and 15W wirelessly. Using the wireless charging capabilities of the MagSafe charger, it takes two hours and 18 minutes to charge the 4323mAh battery from 0% to 100%.
Rumored specs for the device include a 6.7-inch with a 1220 x 2472 resolution and a 144Hz refresh rate. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 is under the hood. The phone will sport an under-display fingerprint scanner.
The camera array on the back includes a 50MP Sony IMX890 sensor and a 25MP sensor. There will be two variants. The model with 240W fast charging comes with a 4600mAh battery while another version sports a 5000mAh battery with 150W charging capabilities.
