The Realme GT will cost €550 in Europe
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 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.
