Zero to half charged in four minutes 

Realme introduced the GT Neo 5, a flagship handset that boasts 240W fast charging which it claims can half charge its 4,600mAh battery in four minutes and completely charge itself in ten minutes.

Samsung's Galaxy S23 Ultra supports fast charging up to 45W. Meanwhile, the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max tops out at an extremely disappointing 27W.  The GT Neo 5 also has a cheaper 150W option with a 5,000mAh battery which still cleans its rivals clocks.

The GT Neo 5 has a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor. The 240W option has 16GB of RAM and 1TB of internal storage, while the 150W variant has 256GB of onboard storage and is available in either 8, 12, or 16GB of RAM.

Screenwise the phone also has a 6.74-inch 10-bit AMOLED screen with a 144Hz refresh rate and a 1,500Hz touch sampling rate. The display supports total DCI-P3 coverage and has a resolution of 2772 x 1240 pixels.

The GT Neo 5 has a 50MP primary camera, an 8MP ultrawide, a 2MP macro shooter, and a 16MP selfie camera. The device even sports an eight component cooling solution, which includes a vapor chamber and multiple graphite layers for heat dissipation. The device features RGB LED lighting on the back, which acts as a notification light and is customisable for different apps.

Prices for the 240W variant are $470 for the 16GB/256GB version and $515 for the 16GB/1TB model. The 150W variant costs $368 for the 8/256GB option, $400 for 12/256GB, and $427 for the 16/256GB version.
