Realme GT 2 Pro has just made its way into Nepal while Xiaomi 12 Pro has been here for a while now. Both flagship phones from Chinese tech giants go head to head with similar specs and most precisely, the Snapdragon Gen 1 chip. The rivalry exists from low-end to high-end devices between Xiaomi and Realme. Today, we are comparing the Realme GT 2 Pro vs Xiaomi 12 Pro, the battle of the flagships.
Starting off with the design, Realme GT 2 Pro has gone with a flat-screen on the front and a glass sandwich body. Master Paper & Sen variants come with an eco-friendly design on the back panel. The punch hole is on the left side of the screen. The volume rockers are placed on the left side while the power key sits on the right side. You get dual stereo speakers too. On the other hand, Xiaomi 12 Pro arrives with a curved screen on the front and a glass sandwich body. There is a center staged punch hole on this phone. For display protection, both phones house Gorilla Glass Victus.
Now on the front side, Realme GT 2 Pro sports an enormous 6.7 inches WQHD+ AMOLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate and 1000Hz touch sampling rate. Boasting 526 PPI, the display comes with HDR 10+ certification and LTPO 2.0 technology. Hence, it can switch the refresh rate from as low as 1Hz to 120Hz depending on the contents. It can cater to up to 1B colors and can shine brightly up to 1500 nits for sunlight readability.
Xiaomi 12 Pro features a 6.73-inch WQHD+ AMOLED screen with LTPO technology and a 120Hz refresh rate. This is a last-gen LTPO tech. Anyways, Xiaomi has implemented AdaptiveSync technology to switch between 1Hz/10Hz/30Hz/60Hz/90Hz/120Hz. The curved screen also has 480 nits sampling rate, HDR 10+ certification plus Dolby Vision. It can also show 1B colors and has 1500 nits of peak brightness. Xiaomi 12 Pro’s display should be a bit better due to Dolby Vision support which the Realme GT 2 Pro lacks. While Realme is better with LTPO 2.0 technology and 1000Hz touch sampling rate.
Both phones have Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset under the hood. The 5G silicon is powerful and hot too. Realme has got Vapor Chamber Cooling 2.0 for balanced performance to keep the thermals in check. Xiaomi has LiquidCool Technolgy with SuperBig VC and 3 graphite sheets for cooling. Realme GT 2 pro boots on Realme UI 3.0 built on top of Android 12. While Xiaomi 12 Pro has MIUI 13 based on Android 12 OS. The UI preference is a personal choice. Both MIUI and Realme UI are feature-centric skins. And also having the same horsepower, the performance should be more or less similar on both devices.
Coming to the optics, Realme GT 2 Pro houses a triple camera setup on the back. The primary shooter is a 50MP Sony IMX 766 lens with an f/1.8 aperture and OIS. The ultrawide lens has also a 50MP resolution with an f/2.2 aperture. It has a whopping 150° FOV. And the last one is a 3MP microscopic lens with 50X magnification. The main camera can shoot up to 8K at 24 fps. The stabilization relies on Gyro-EIS.
Similarly, the Xiaomi 12 Pro also has a triple camera setup. Here, all of the cameras get the same 50MP resolutions. The primary camera is a 50MP Sony IMX 706 lens with an f/1.8 aperture. It also has Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). Following is a 50MP ultrawide lens with an f/2.2 aperture and 115° FOV. Also, Xiaomi has provided a 50MP Telephoto lens with 2X Optical Zoom. For videos, the main lens can also shoot up to 8K res at 24fps.
Xiaomi 12 Pro takes an edge here with the inclusion of a 50MP telephoto lens. The real-life performance of the main sensor should be similar. Realme’s 150 FOV on ultrawide camera beats the 115° FOV on Xiaomi’s. Also, the 3MP microscopic camera is cool but a telephoto lens is more useful. So, portraits on Xiaomi 12 Pro come better than on Realme GT 2 Pro.
Realme GT 2 Pro packs in a 5000mAh cell with 65W fast charging support. Meanwhile, Xiaomi 12 Pro houses a 4600mAh battery with the support for 120W fast charging. Here, Realme has a slightly bigger battery while Xiaomi has super-fast charging technology. The 65W charger takes 33 mins to fill up the 5000 mAh cell as per Realme. Xiaomi’s 120W takes half the time, with 18 minutes. So, Xiaomi is a clear winner in terms of fast charging.
Now let’s talk about the price of the devices. Realme GT 2 Pro retails at Rs. 1,09,999 for the sole 12/256GB version launched in Nepal. Meanwhile, Xiaomi 12 Pro costs Rs. 1,14,999 for the same 12/256GB variant. So, Realme is 5000 rupees cheaper than Xiaomi here.
Design-wise, Xiaomi 12 Pro looks better with a premium curved display on the front. Realme is also different with a paperback panel on the white color variants. Well, design is a personal preference too. Coming to the display, Dolby Vision on Xiaomi 12 Pro is giving an advantage on OTT platforms like Netflix, Prime Video, etc. Both have a WQHD+ panel, so there shouldn’t be a drastic difference in the quality. Well, Realme does provide LTPO 2nd Gen tech as compared to LTPO 1st gen tech of Xiaomi.
In the performance department, both phones are boasting the same chipset, Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. Hence, performance is going to be similar on both phones. Realme UI and MIUI are feature-rich skins and give you ample customization options. On the optics though, Xiaomi 12 Pro has an advantage of a 50MP telephoto lens. While Realme’s 150 FOV does give you extra-wide shots. Rest Apart, both phones can do 8K videos at 24 fps. The primary sensors would take similar quality pics on both phones while portraits will be better on Xiaomi due to a dedicated telephoto lens.
On charging speed, Xiaomi becomes the clear winner with 120W fast charging as compared to 65W on Realme. Realme GT 2 Pro has a slightly bigger battery (5000mAh) as compared to 4600 mAh on the Xiaomi 12 Pro. By the pricing, Realme is 5000 rupees cheaper and you get similar features here too. But if you are willing to pay more, Xiaomi 12 Pro gives you better optics and a premium curved screen. If your budget is tight, you can opt for Realme GT 2 Pro with a wider FOV ultrawide camera, if not, Xiaomi 12 Pro is the way to go.
