What you need to know

  • Realme GT 2 series is now official.
  • The Realme GT 2 Pro is powered by Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip and features a 2K LTPO AMOLED display.
  • Realme's vanilla GT 2 is a value flagship featuring the older Snapdragon 888 chipset and a 120Hz E4 AMOLED display.

Realme on January 4 announced the GT2 series flagship phones at an event held in China. Unlike previous Realme flagships, the new GT2 Pro is targeted at the premium smartphone segment. What sets the Realme GT 2 Pro apart from its rivals is its design. It is the first phone to use a bio-based polymer design and ships in recyclable packaging.

The flagship phone is powered by Qualcomm's 4nm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, which is paired with up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage. It sports a 6.7-inch 2K AMOLED flat display with LTPO 2.0 technology and 1-120Hz adaptive refresh rate.

On the back of the Realme GT 2 Pro is a triple-camera setup featuring a 50MP IMX766 primary sensor with all-pixel Omni-directional PDAF and OIS. It is joined by a 50MP 150-degree ultra-wide camera and a 40x micro-lens camera.

The ultra-wide camera enables users to capture extreme panoramas, while the micro-lens camera can take extreme close-ups of objects. Some of the other key highlights of the Realme GT 2 Pro include a 5000mAh battery with support for 65W charging speeds, a 32MP selfie camera, and stereo speakers.

While the GT 2 Pro is Realme's answer to the best Android phones in the premium segment, the vanilla GT 2 is a value flagship powered by last year's Snapdragon 888 chipset. The phone also has a 120Hz E4 AMOLED display, the same 50MP IMX766 primary sensor as the GT 2 Pro, and a 5000mAh battery with 65W charging. On the software front, both the GT 2 series phones run Realme UI 3.0 based on Android 12.

Realme GT 2 starts at 2,599 yuan (about $410), while the GT 2 Pro will start at 3,699 yuan (about $580) during the early bird sales in China. There's no word yet on when the two phones will leave China.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Peloton Reverses Course, Will Continue to Support Apple GymKit

Earlier this week, Peloton said that it would drop support for Apple's GymKit feature that syncs data to the Health app. Customers were unhappy with the decision and complained to the company, leading Peloton to announce a change in plans. Peloton on Thursday said that after listening to member feedback on GymKit, the integration will continue to be offered. Peloton wanted to stop offering GymKit integration in favor of the Peloton One-Tap tracking feature, but GymKit has been a key feature on the $2,500 Bike+ since its 2020 debut , and other Peloton machines since 2022. After listening to Members’ feedback about discontinuing Apple GymKit integration for Bike+, we have decided to continue offering Apple GymKit integration. As a Member-first company, we are always grateful to our Members for sharing their views. — Peloton (@onepeloton) February 16, 2024 The One-Tap tracking app does monitor distance, pace, and heart rate metrics, but only basic information is synced t

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
