Realme was promoting the new Realme GT as one of the most powerful Snapdragon 888-powered smartphones, citing AnTuTu performance. Turns out, those scores were inflated.
Realme said that the flagship scored 770,000 points. Per AnTuTu, the company gamed the system to pump up the score, which is why it is not reflective of the handset’s real performance. When the benchmarking platform ran its own test, the phone only managed 688,602 points allegedly.
That statement hasn’t convinced Antutu and the platform has removed Realme GT’s score for three months. If the company fails to follow the correct protocols, the handset will be banned permanently.
The GT was announced just recently. It offers top-notch specs like a 120Hz OLED screen, a triple camera array, and a large battery with 65W charging for just 2,799 yuan (~$430).
