The launch of the Realme GT 5G in India in May was hinted at by the company’s CEO. In a new QnA, Realme India Chief Marketing Officer Francis Wong confirmed that the company will launch a flagship phone on Realme’s third anniversary in the country. Although Wong did not explicitly mention the name of the flagship, it will probably be Realme GT 5G. Realme started its activities on the Indian market in May 2018 and therefore the flagship is expected to be released in May this year.
