The phone is premium-looking because of this leather-like material. The front is made of glass while the in-between the glass and the leather is a polycarbonate frame with a shiny finish. This polycarbonate frame makes the phone incredibly lightweight.

It is 
boasting a body designed by Naoto Fukasawa, a famous Japanese industrial designer known for his work with MUJI, Herman Miller, and more.

The frame and the back curve making the phone easier to hold. On top of the glass is the pre-installed screen protector. The glass front and the frame are both fingerprint smudge magnets.

The SIM tray can carry up to two nano-SIM cards. There is no slot for a microSD card to expand the storage.

We recommend wearing the included silicone bumper case to avoid slipperiness and fingerprint smudges.

The realme GT Master Edition looks premium and is eye-catching. What makes it even better is the specs are great too. Depending on the price, it may be a value-for-money pick.

Very promising so far!

As mentioned earlier, the phone is exciting but we will have to reserve judgment until the price is announced and until we managed to use the phone in real life.
