Chinese company Realme makes a new smartphone. The phone is GT3. It is special because it has a very good battery.

The battery can charge in just nine minutes. It is the fastest-charging battery in the world. You need only 80 seconds to charge the phone to 20% capacity. When you charge the phone for 30 seconds, you can call for two hours, listen to music for three and a half hours or watch one TV episode.

The company also says that after 1,600 charge cycles, the battery still keeps 80% capacity. The phone also has a special design and new features. This makes it different from other smartphones.

Difficult words: charge (to store electrical energy in a battery), capacity (the maximum amount which something can keep or produce), feature (a special or unusual part of something).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
