Now, the reason for the decision to not launch the Realme GT Explorer Edition might be the rumoured OnePlus 9RT. As we know, the latter is rumoured to launch later in October. Moreover, quite a lot of its supposed specifications have surfaced online. According to those, it looks like they both have almost the same specs except the design of Explorer Edition. Additionally, when or if it launches, the phone will fill up the space between premium flagships and the affordable segment of the brand itself.
