(Pocket-lint) – Realme’s blistering 2022 phone launch pace isn’t about to slow down anytime soon, with the company looking set to launch another phone in its GT 2 series.
A TENAA certification listing reveals the specific design and specifications of an unreleased Realme phone that is expected to be the GT 2 Master Explorer Edition.
In essence, it would be a slightly more “Pro” phone than the GT 2 Pro. But since the ‘Pro’ moniker is already in use, the next step up is the Master Explorer, just like with the Realme GT Master Explorer edition of 2021.
The featured images show a phone with a fairly flat and square design, suggesting that this version takes a very different approach to the in-hand feel of the usual GT 2 Pro.

Other than that, little is clear, as these TENAA images are mostly shadowed silhouettes. However, we can make out the triple camera housing on the back, which appears to be a deliberate symmetrical layout.
As for the specs, it’s expected to feature Qualcomm’s upgraded Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor, offering a boost over the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 in the GT 2 Pro.
Otherwise, the specifications are quite similar. It’s said to have a 6.7-inch 10-bit AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rates, but with Full HD+ rather than Quad HD resolution.
The camera system is said to feature a 50-megapixel primary alongside a 50-megapixel ultrawide sensor and an additional 2-megapixel sensor. There’s also a 16-megapixel selfie camera on the front.
As for the 4880mAh battery, which featured the 2440mAh split-cell design favored by Realme, Oppo and OnePlus, to utilize the company’s fast charging technology. It should come with 100W or 150W fast charging.
Other specs include 6GB, 8GB, or 12GB of RAM along with 128GB, 256GB, or 512GB of storage. We suspect – given the company’s history – that the variants will differ by region.
The phone is expected to launch in July in China and will be rumored to come in white, brown, and green colors. It remains to be seen how accurate this information turns out to be, however, with the specs listed on a certification website, we can be relatively sure of at least some of it.
