Realme’s new GT Neo 5 phone can go from zero to 100% charge in under 10 minutes
Realme’s newest phone is called the GT Neo 5 and its headline feature is not its chip or camera, but super-fast charging.
With its 240W fast charging feature, the GT Neo 5 is one of, if not the fastest charging phones in the market right now.
According to Realme, the GT Neo 5 can get its 4,600mAh battery fully juiced in just nine and a half minutes. And if you just need a quick charge, it can get from 0% to 20% in a mere 80 seconds. 0% to 50% takes just four minutes. In practical terms, it means you can almost get a full charge in the time you use to take a shower.

The rest of the phone is fairly mainstream Android stuff. It has a 6.74-inch OLED display with a high 144Hz refresh rate and it’s powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip.
The main camera is a 50MP unit that uses Sony’s IMX890 sensor and it has a second 8MP ultrawide camera. The selfie camera uses a 16MP Samsung sensor and has a hole-punch design in the centre of the screen.
