AnTuTu calls out the Realme GT on false claims, delists device

Realme has had a spat with AnTuTu in the past on the back of the Realme X50 Pro scoring on the platform and the same issue is set to repeat itself.

Recall that we reported sometimes last week about the Realme GT selling out in its flash sale – and in mere seconds too. Today, the same device has made the news for having been erroneously portrayed to customers, according to AnTuTu.

The Vice President of Realme shared sometimes last month that the device hit scores of 750,000 on the AnTuTu platform. Given that the phone is supposed to have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset under the hood, that should not have caused too many raises of the eyebrows. The number is high even for that chipset, but it is not unattainable.

However, AnTuTu performed independent checks of the unt and could not achieve the same scores. They have, thus, removed the phone from their platform for three months during which time Realme has the chance to conduct a more transparent test with real results to be published.

Otherwise, AnTuTu retains all the right to permanently delist the smartphone from its platform.
