In recent times Realme has renewed its lineup on our market, starting from the Realme Pad tablet (of which you can find our review at this link) and passing through the mid-range models Realme 9i, 9 Pro and 9 Pro + (here is our review ).

Now the Chinese manufacturer is preparing to complete the work by bringing the new flagship to the Old Continent – where in 2021 it was the fastest growing brand -: the European launch of Realme GT2 Pro will take place under the spotlight of the Mobile World Congress 2022.

Google performance class 12: what it is and what it is for

If you have been following us closely in recent months, you already know what we are talking about: “Performance class“Is a new standard that the Mountain View giant has introduced starting from Android 12 and that”defines a set of device capabilities that go beyond basic Android requirements“. Its purpose is to help app developers understand what software functions a certain Android smartphone or tablet can perform. To give an example, the Performance class 12 (reserved for smartphones with the highest level of performance) should offer the “most premium experience“, While class 11 would require you to settle for a”high quality experience“.

THE minimum requirements provided by the Android 12 Compatibility Definition Document (CDD) for the Performance class 12 include: a 12MP rear camera with support for 4K video recording at 30fps; a front camera of 5 MP or greater with support for 1080p video recording at 30fps; a minimum display resolution of 1080p with 400DPI and a minimum RAM memory allocation of 6GB.

As you may have already guessed, these are not particularly difficult requirements to meet for a modern smartphone from the mid-range to rise, therefore the certification of models with technical data sheets such as that of Realme GT2 Pro it is a mere formality.
