A few weeks after the release of Realme GT3 in China, the world’s first phone with 240W charging is ready to be released on the world stage. Realme GT3 from today on Various global markets are offered And the pleasure of full charging Less than 10 minutes It will be available to global users.
- Introducing the new member of the Realme GT series: Realme GT Neo 3T
As suspected, this phone is actually the global version of the Realme GT Neo 5 240W. Of course, the global version uses the hardware belonging to the flagship category (while the Neo series is usually considered mid-range), but still, its price remains much lower than the flagship level, and the Realme GT3 for its 128/8GB model, the price It will have a base of $650.
This hardware upgrade from mid-range to premium makes the Realme GT3 one of the cheapest Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 phones, especially outside of China, despite its 240W charging. But the point is that the existence of this flagship chipset is not what makes this phone unique, but ultimately technology. Triple charging That is what makes it one of the most special phones on the market.
Charging chip, special charger and unique cable
First of all, the phone uses three 100W charging chips to achieve 98.5% transfer efficiency during charging (and a large margin of safety). In the second part, this power comes from a dual GaN charger, which is the same as Realme’s 150W charger last year. And in the third part, this is the first 12A USB amp cable because no one has ever needed to transfer this amount of current over USB!
The company claims that its 240W system “offers the fastest charging power for years to come, as it reaches the maximum charging power possible under USB-C standards.” Well, a certain competitor might have something to say about the last part, but the truth is that none of the companies use USB standards, but each uses their own proprietary technologies, and the new USB PD power range (which It limits the current to 5 amps, even in 240 watt mode).
Safety is the most important challenge in fast charging technologies
Well, now let’s take a closer look at the charging features of this phone, Realme GT3 has a 4600 mAh battery that can be fully charged in about 9 minutes and 30 seconds. And if you don’t even have ten minutes to spare, this phone can reach 20% in just 80 seconds, and 50% in 4 minutes, which are really strange numbers. Despite this high current, TÜV Rheinland has tested this system and confirmed its safety. However, securing this charging process was not an easy task at all.
The phone has a large 6,580mm2 vapor chamber, which isn’t just for keeping the Snapdragon 8+ 1st Gen cool while gaming (although that’s one of its duties, too). In fact, this cooling system covers 61.5% of the battery area and together with 13 temperature sensors, it ensures that the temperature and current will remain stable at the standard level during charging.
It is true that we have a 240W charger in the Realme GT3, but this phone is not going to push the gas pedal blindly. In fact, a smart system can switch between several modes – travel, sleep and in the car – and choose the appropriate charging speed. But even if you only use the 240W mode, the battery will retain 80% of its original capacity after 1600 cycles.
The Realme GT3 has a “flashing interface system”, which is a C-shaped RGB light behind the glass window next to the camera bump, when charging. If you start with a dead battery, it will pulse red for the first 80 seconds, then purple for 7 minutes or so, then a steady purple light because the battery is fully charged at that point.
Of course, this light system is used for other notifications and when taking pictures. When using the 10-second countdown timer, the light alternates between blue, white, and orange. You also have the possibility to completely customize the light by choosing 25 colors, 2 types of rhythm and 5 light speed modes.
