realme was announced as the world’s fastest-growing major smartphone brand globally in the second quarter of this year (2Q21) with a year-over-year growth rate of 149%, as data from research firm International Data Corporation (IDC) showed.
If that wasn’t enough to place the smartphone in the lead, in August this year the brand announced its achievement in selling 100 million devices globally, becoming the world’s first smartphone brand to achieve this milestone, according to Strategy Analytics.
Despite being a young brand, it has managed to leapfrog over established industry giants and took 7th position in terms of global market share. Undoubtedly, realme has grown rapidly in South East Asia since it entered the market at the end of 2018 and has since expanded globally to 61 markets, such as China, India, Southeast Asia, South Asia, Europe, Russia, and Africa.
Here in Malaysia, the brand has captured the attention when it scored high when it was rated No.1 Best Selling smartphone on Lazada 9.9 Biggest Brands Sale, and Top 3 Best Selling Smartphone Brand on the popular online shopping platform. This success prompted realme to push its technological prowess with the launch of GT Master Edition 8GB+128GB a powerful device that is both enterprise capable and lifestyle featured.
Fit For Business
Corporate dynamos will be heartened to know that the realme GT Master Edition is no pushover when it comes to performance, with specifications such as Snapdragon 778G 5G, 120Hz Super AMOLED Fullscreen, 65W SuperDart Charge and 64MP Main Camera, you can throw any tough tasks and the phone does its duty with ease. This probably is attributed to the Dynamic Ram Expansion (DRE) technology and the additional 5GB virtual RAM which incidentally is the first smartphone brand to start employing this innovative technology, allowing it to scale up to 13GB. Needless to say with such RAM size comes great power, only limited to the capability of the user rather than the device itself.
This innovative smartphone also employs the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G 5G flagship processor, which adopts the current 6nm advanced process, four A78 architecture super cores, and with its main frequency reaching up to 2.4GHz, providing comprehensive and powerful performance.
To handle this much speed, the realme GT Master Edition is furthermore equipped with a vapour chamber that has an area of up to 1729.8mm², larger and more efficient in cooling than traditional pipes. It has a five-layer cooling system made of graphite, copper, aluminium alloy, and silica gel, allowing its large heatsink area to cover 100% of core heat sources to a total area of more than 12387.4 mm². This significantly reduces heat and keeps the phone constantly in a state of high-performance experience. realme GT Master Edition already supports the 90-frame mode of Honor of Kings, making it the perfect phone for gamers anytime anywhere.
Best for Travel
Designed by the world-renowned industrial designer, Naoto Fukasawa who had many elements in mind when designing the device include his foremost ambition of travelling.
“Travelling has played an important role in my life, allowing me to learn the differences existing in the world and what real design is. I wanted to design the phone for all people. Especially for positive, active and lively people.”
Themed around ‘pack and go’ be it for a busy businessman or a routine traveller, the smartphone is shaped like a ‘suitcase’, replicating the horizontal grid of a suitcase. This allows users to naturally think of travel making them feel comfortable that this companion is always by their side and ready to pounce into action when required. The product’s unique design is the culmination of realme’s past experience as well as their Dare to Leap spirit, making them the winner of iF Design Award 2021.
Available in two choices of tranquil and calming colours, Voyager Grey and Daybreak Blue, the realme GT Master Edition smartphone adds elegance and sophistication. The colours accompanying this best-selling and innovative smartphone brings tranquillity while its vegan leather material offers a sense of sustainability.

For the perfect selfie, the realme GT Master Edition is equipped with a 32MP Sony selfie camera, with a Sony IMX615 sensor, F2.45 aperture, 85 degree FOV field of view, at a 6560*4928 resolution.
