While there’s not much information about the GT 2, the Realme GT 2 Pro has been leaked plenty of times in the past.

Further, Realme GT 2 Pro’s back panel will be made up of bio-polymer material, designed by popular Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa and Realme Design Studio.
Moreover, it will also be the first phone to get an ultra-wide camera with a field of view of 150 degrees. It is also expected to support a new Fisheye mode.
