Realme’s upcoming phone charges from 0-100% in less than 10 minutes

How’s that for statistics? Realme says it will take 80 seconds to charge the battery in the upcoming Realme GT3 from 0% to 20%, and just under 10 minutes for it to reach 100%.

This is due to the phone’s new 240W fast charging system, which is the most powerful and fastest way to charge a smartphone battery we’ve seen to date. Realme also claims that it won’t be outdone for a while, as its system increases the recharging capacity of a USB Type-C connection.

How to make Realme 240W charging real

How it works? The 240W charger uses dual GaN technology and has three chipsets dedicated to managing the charging process, as well as a proprietary 12A charging cable. The system packs 60% more power than other chargers, yet the mass is no larger than a 150W adapter. The GT3’s battery has a modest 4,600mAh capacity, which definitely helps the Charger hit those key numbers.

Realme has tested the battery extensively and says it will still deliver 80% of its capacity after 1,600 charge cycles, even at this power. He also designed 13 temperature sensors, a large steam room system, and more security measures into the phone. Other power management tools mean the phone switches between modes based on usage, to maintain battery health over time, too.

The glowing lights are on the back too

While the charging technology is interesting, when you look at the photos of the phone, there’s something else that catches your eye. On the back, inside the camera module, is a glowing light. Realme calls this C-ring the pulse interface design, and it shows the phone’s status when charging, when a call comes in, as a notification alert, and even as a countdown when you take a photo. The RGB lighting system supports 25 different colors and five different speeds.

Look closely, and a ring of light surrounds a clear window in the phone, which apparently shows a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset sticker and NFC chip. Realme says it took inspiration from gaming phones, like the Asus ROG Phone 6, but didn’t mention the biggest influence in smartphone lighting lately, the Nothing Phone 1.

Realme was announced at MWC 2023, and it hasn’t revealed much about the Realme GT3 yet. We don’t know anything about the camera, for example, or the Snapdragon chip that will power the phone. We know it will come with 8GB, 12GB, or 16GB of RAM, matched with 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, or even 1TB of internal storage. The cheaper model will cost $649, but although the price is given in US dollars, it is unlikely that the Realme GT3 will be launched in the US.

Anyone who can’t afford Realme’s GT3 looking for the fastest charging smartphone should turn their attention to the excellent OnePlus 11.
