Realme has been quite busy releasing themed spin-offs of its latest Android phone, the Realme GT Neo 3, with both the Naruto and Dragonball Z versions already out. However, a remake inspired by the latest Marvel movie is a little less impressive.
There’s a new version inspired by the latest in Marvel’s long line of films, Thor: Love and Thunder, that was unveiled in India. It’s unclear if it will be on sale elsewhere, but some of the other themed versions released in Europe as well (but not in the US – Realme doesn’t sell its phones there).
You probably already know what’s in the box, because you’ve already passed the image of the ‘Realme GT Neo 3 150W Thor Love and Thunder Limited Edition’ as they are calling it. You get a Nitro Blue version of the phone, plus some stickers, cards, a badge, and a themed SIM removal tool.
Out of all the phones, the Realme GT Neo 3 is perhaps the best choice for the God of Thunder theme because it charges very fast. It has 150W power, which takes the phone from empty to full in just 15 minutes – at the time of writing, there isn’t a faster charging phone on the market.
So maybe this Thor phone will appeal to Marvel fans…
Review: Not exactly a major redesign
Sometimes when we see pop culture versions of Android phones they have some interesting redesigns – the Dragonball version of the Realme GT Neo 3 was bright orange and blue, for example.
So what’s special about the Thor: Love and Thunder version? Uh – absolutely nothing. The phone included in the package is the Nitro Blue which is now available for sale.
Not only is this a little lazy on Realme’s part, but it’s not great for Thor fans either. The new design has nothing to do with the new Marvel movie – it’s literally a racing stripe on the back.
This isn’t the only time we’ve seen lazy tie-ins, but it’s certainly a shame for fans of Thor: Love and Thunder. Don’t expect to see this on our list of the weirdest phones of the year.
