Realme is launching two new high-end phones, Realme GT Master Explorer Edition and Realme GT Master Edition, in China today. The Realme GT Master Explorer Edition stands out particularly with its one-of-its-kind “suitcase” leather design featuring the artwork of Muji’s iconic designer, Naoto Fukasawa. Realme has previously worked with Fukasawa on multiple “Master” edition models including the “Garlic” and “Onion” Master editions of the Realme X launched in India in 2019. The Realme GT Master Explorer Edition will be available in Suitcase Apricot and Suitcase Grey colourways.

The Master Explorer Edition is interesting in other ways too. Take for instance the cameras. Realme is using the same 50MP Sony IMX766 primary sensor in it, previously seen inside the OnePlus 9 Pro and Oppo Find X3 Pro. The same camera is also set to arrive on the upcoming OnePlus Nord 2. Aside from that seemingly compelling camera hardware, the Master Explorer Edition also packs the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 system-on-chip, a 120Hz Super AMOLED display and 65W fast charging. The Realme GT Master Edition is a watered-down Realme GT Master Explorer Edition that tries to bring a lot of its features at an even more affordable price.
