Digit has collaborated with OnLeaks for this latest leak that reveals the special colour option of the Realme GT Master Edition that has been made especially for this occasion. We know that for the Realme GT Master Edition, the company partnered with Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa who has previously worked on the Realme X, Realme X2 Pro Master Edition and the Realme X50 5G Master Edition. He took inspiration from a travel suitcase in designing the Realme GT Master Edition.
As you can see in the above picture, the Realme GT Master Edition will launch in a special dark orange/rust red colour variant in India and Europe. The phone has a design that’s reminiscent of a suitcase with ribbed textures throughout. The highlight of this colour is that it has a distinct metal badge towards the bottom that says “Celebrating with 100M Fans”.
Apart from this, we already know that the Realme GT will also launch alongside this special dark orange colour variant of the GT Master Edition. The Realme GT also comes in a vegan leather design and is powered by the Snapdragon 888 processor. As for the Realme GT Master Edition, here is everything we know about it.
Do note that while the phone in the image does resemble with the Realme GT Master Explorer Edition, in all likelihood the same phone may launch in India as the Realme GT Master Edition on August 18.
