The next-generation Realme GT Neo 5 will offer a massive 240W rapid charging, according to Realme. Currently, certain smartphones, like the iQOO 10 Pro, support 200W, and the device is assured to attain full charge in 10 minutes. The Realme GT Neo 5 may be completely charged using the 240W charging technology in 7 to 8 minutes, while Realme has not specified the charging duration. The smartphone will make its debut in China in February before going on sale in more territories, most likely including India.

The news was announced by Realme on the Chinese social media site Weibo. According to the report, Realme will employ a 240W dual GaN micro charging head to reach the greatest power density in the sector of 2.34W/CC. For those who are unaware, a GaN charger is made of gallium nitride rather than the more typical silicon. This helps manufacturers make the charger more energy-efficient, smaller, and effective.
