Realme GT 2 Pro flagship smartphone with an eco-friendly back cover coming to Kenya early this year

Realme’s most premium flagship line-up ever, the realme GT 2 Pro Phone is coming to Kenya. The company has announced that it will be making the device available in the local market early this year. It has not announced the official date yet. 

This will be the first time we’re seeing Realme bring in a flagship device. Since coming to Kenya in August 2020, the company has mainly been focusing on affordable lineup of devices, a number of which we have reviewed here at TechTrendsKE. It’s interesting to see them now bring in flagships like the  Realme GT 2 Pro.

Important to note that the Realme GT 2 Pro is the world’s first smartphone with a back cover made of eco-friendly material. The back cover uses a bio-polymer material that serves as an eco-friendly alternative to fossil raw materials.

In addition, Realme’s new box design has reduced the overall plastic ratio from 21.7% in the previous generation to 0.3% for this model as the mobile phone brand affirms its commitment to net zero emissions.

The SABIC bio-based material has passed not only the ISCC International Sustainability and Carbon Certification, but also various stringent environmental regulation standards, such as REACH, RoHS, and EPEAT.

The sustainability-focused, “Paper Tech Master Design,” inspired by paper has been created by renowned Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa.
