Realme GT Neo 2 packs Snapdragon 870, 120Hz display for just $425

Realme is expanding its GT lineup with the launch of the Realme GT Neo 2. After introducing the Realme GT in Europe a couple of months ago, the company has unveiled the Realme GT Neo 2 in India. The smartphone is quite similar to its GT counterpart, coming in the signature neon green version, as well as blue and black color options. It will compete against the likes of the Poco F3 GT, Mi 11x 5G, and Samsung Galaxy M52 in the Indian market.

The Realme GT Neo 2 features a 6.62-inch full-HD+ Samsung E4 display that supports HDR10+, a 120Hz refresh rate, 600Hz touch sampling rate, 1,300 nits of peak brightness, and DC dimming. Under the hood lies the Snapdragon 870 SoC, which is a faster version of the Snapdragon 865 Plus from last year. According to Realme, the GT Neo 2’s vapor-cooling system is 30 percent larger and 20 percent more efficient, making use of stainless steel and copper.

Whatever you do, only buy the #realmeGTNEO2 in green. It’s an *amazing*, really eye-catching, 70s muscle car-inspired colour scheme, and I love it. The black chassis finishes it off perfectly.
More on this one from me soon. #EverythingInNEO @realmeIndia @realmeUK

Realme’s bright green GT Neo2 will go perfectly with your muscle car
The Realme GT Neo2 in hand.

Every time I look at the Neo Green Realme GT Neo2 smartphone, I'm overcome with a desire to buy a Ford Mustang in the famous Grabber Lime color, complete with black stripes. The person who came up with the GT Neo2's insane green-and-black color scheme must surely have been influenced by this most iconic of Ford muscle car hues. A Grabber Lime 'Stang isn't for the shy and retiring, and neither is the Neo Green GT Neo2.

You're going to get noticed, but does the phone have the ability to back it up?
Pass the sunglasses
The Neo Green isn't the only color option for the Realme GT Neo2; it also comes in a pretty blue along with a basic black, which you absolutely shouldn't buy. If you're going to get one, get it in the Neo Green or Neo Blue. Embrace the brightness, put on your sunglasses, and enjoy owning a phone that stands out from the crowd.

Google Chat app on the Play Store.

Google Chat — Google's business-oriented messaging platform that is similar to Slack and Microsoft Teams — just got a big update for its Android and iOS apps. The update dramatically changes how you navigate the app and, uh, well, it sure is something.

Google Chat's mobile app used to be broken up into two pages: Chat (direct messages between you and other users) and Spaces (larger chat rooms for multiple people). As with most apps, you switched between these with a navigation bar at the bottom of your screen.

Yes, that’s right — you’ll now get a notification on your Android phone when your Pixel Watch 2 is fully charged. Hallelujah!

This new feature should be available starting today via the Pixel Watch app on version Google did not formally announce this feature, so it seems to be rolled out quietly (and was first spotted by Android Authority).
