The Snapdragon 888-powered Realme GT 5G unveiled in March in China will arrive in Europe soon. It was also supposed to debut in India in early May as a part of the company’s 3rd-anniversary celebration, but that didn’t happen. And while we don’t have an exact date of the GT 5G’s India debut yet, Realme’s Indian branch has revealed the smartphone will be introduced in the country soon.
This revelation comes via a page set up by Realme on its Indian site for the Making 5G Global virtual summit it is holding on June 3. The page includes the Realme 8 5G, Narzo 30 Pro 5G, and X7 5G that are already available for purchase in India. Alongside these, the company has listed the Realme GT 5G as “Coming Soon”, without telling us anything about its pricing and availability.
There were some speculations about the launch of the Realme GT 5G in India, and a few days back, when we spoke with Realme employees, we were told the company was yet to take any decision regarding the GT 5G’s India launch. But now that Realme has confirmed the GT 5G’s India launch, you can expect the phone maker to start teasing it on social media soon.

In addition to confirming the GT 5G’s India launch, the event page also tells us that Realme is holding a 5G session in India on June 10, but it’s currently unclear if Realme will introduce the GT 5G in India that day or if it has some other plans. We’ll hopefully have more clarity in the coming days.
That said, before introducing the GT 5G in India, Realme will announce the X7 Max 5G in the country – on May 31. The Realme X7 Max 5G is likely a rebranded GT Neo, which isn’t all that different from GT 5G, so it will be interesting to see how both phones are positioned by Realme.
Compared to the GT 5G, the GT Neo is lighter, has a Dimensity 1200 SoC at the helm, comes with more memory options, and charges slower at 50W. Its back cover also has a different finish. You can head this way to check out the detailed specs of GT 5G and GT Neo.
