Realme GT Neo 5 SE Ships for $305 and Features a 144Hz Screen and 100W Charging

The GT Neo 5 SE has been revealed by Realme in China after several weeks of teasers. While the regular GT Neo 5 and the GT Neo 5 share some important specifications, there are three major distinctions in the chipset, camera, and battery areas.

Design and Display

The new gadget has a 6.74-inch AMOLED screen with a 2772 x 1240-pixel resolution and a refresh rate of 144 Hz. Under the display, the fingerprint reader is located, and the surrounding bezels are thin.

Although the large rectangular variant lacks a separate cutout for the main camera, it almost has the same appearance as the regular GT Neo 5.

Hardware and software

The Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 chipset from Qualcomm, which supports up to 16 GB of RAM and up to 1 TB of storage, is featured in the GT Neo 5 SE. Since the phone comes with 256 GB of internal storage as standard, there is no memory card slot for expanding the available capacity.

Software-wise, the smartphone runs Android 13 on top of Realme UI 4.0.


The selfie camera, which is located inside the punch-hole cutout, has a resolution of 16MP and is accompanied by a 64MP main sensor, an 8MP ultrawide module, and a 2MP microscope lens. While the selfie camera can only capture 1080p videos, the main camera can film 4K videos at 30 frames per second.

Pricing and Battery

The battery size and charging times are the other key variations between the GT Neo 5 and the SE model, in addition to the chipset and camera. The GT Neo 5 has a 5,000 mAh battery cell, compared to the SE model’s 5,500 mAh.

However, compared to the standard GT Neo 5’s 150W charging solution, the SE charges at a slower 100W rate.

The phone will commence at $305 in China and be offered in Blue and Black colours.
