Focus on speed, Realme GT Neo 3 features a racing stripe design on the back. The company claims that the design is an embodiment of speed and performance and is a reference to an epic rivalry between two automakers in one of the oldest endurance races during the 60s. The design surely offers a different feeling to the users.

Realme GT Neo 3 features a glass front, a plastic frame and a glass back. The back of the phone is carved out of a piece of matte AG glass with a beautiful contour. Similarly, the smooth surface also helps in reducing glares and minimises fingerprints. There is a rounded, rectangular-shaped camera module on the back panel, which stands out of the panel and makes the phone wobble when placed on a rectangular surface.

The phone weighs lightly at 188 grams and is 8.2mm thick. It is available in sprint white and nitro blue colours.
