Technically, it’s the world’s first commercial smartphone with whopping 150W fast charging support.

Realme GT Neo 3 was launched in China today, March 22. There are two versions of this phone with different battery sizes and fast charging stats (while rest of the package remains similar). One of the models supports a ridiculously fast 150W “UltraDart” charging. You get a 4,500mAh battery here. The second option gets a bigger 5,000mAh battery but 80W fast charging support. A compliant fast charger ships with both phones.

Realme claims you will be able to fully charge the 80W-supporting Realme GT Neo 3 in flat 32 minutes. The version that supports 150W fast charging can go from 0-50% in just 5 minutes.

Realme had announced its 150W UltraDart fast charging solution at MWC 2022 in February (the Realme GT Neo 3 was teased at the same event). At its heart lies the UltraDart Charging Architecture which is designed to support charging powers between 100W and 200W. The tech is said to use multi boost charge pumps to increase the charging current even as a temperature management algorithm helps keep thermal temperature below 43-degrees Celsius. This would seemingly keep the temperature at an ideal level while charging without any potential safety hazards.

The Realme GT Neo 3 battery is said to retain 80% capacity at 1000+ complete charge cycles, Realme claims.

Realme GT Neo 3 price, availability

The 80W Realme GT Neo 3 price starts at CNY 1,999 (roughly Rs 24,000) for 6GB/128GB. You can also get it with 8GB/128GB for CNY 2,299 (roughly Rs 27,500) and 12GB/256GB for CNY 2,599 (roughly Rs 31,200).
