Realme is on a launch spree this year & while we have seen quite a lot of mid-range & budget phones from the brand this year, the first true flagship phone from Realme launched today named Realme X2 Pro. It first launched in China earlier today & now, Realme has announced it for the European market as well. If you don’t know, Realme has already announced that it would bring it to the Indian market in December so expect its launch to take place alongside the Realme XT 730G.

This device is a perfect reply from Realme to the Xiaomi’s Mi 9T Pro (Redmi K20 Pro in some regions) & it brings some impressive features that the K20 Pro lacks, for example, the 90Hz Fluid display, 50W SuperVOOC Fast Charging, 64MP Quad camera setup, UFS 3.0 storage etc. Moreover, these are the features that we see in high-end flagships, but companies like Realme are bringing these at super affordable prices.

REALME X2 PRO – DESIGN & SPECIFICATIONS

This is Realme’s most expensive phone till date, so it isn’t a surprise that it has premium build quality & design. There is Gorilla Glass 5 on the front as well as the rear while the frame is metallic. One thing that makes the X2 Pro look inferior to the Redmi K20 Pro or the Mi 9T Pro is the design from the front. While the K20 Pro has a Full-Screen design with no notch or holes, the Realme X2 Pro has a tiny waterdrop notch on the front that houses the front camera.

But still, there are users who prefer a notch over a pop-up camera mechanism.

On the rear, there are Quad cameras placed in the middle instead of top left. The fingerprint scanner isn’t there on the rear because it is placed under the display.

Coming to that display, it is not only a 6.5-inch Super AMOLED Full-HD+ panel from Samsung but also has 90Hz refresh rate, the first in its price segment right now. This shows how fast we get features from expensive high-end flagships to the budget flagships. The display is also extremely bright as it can go up to a thousand nits. The display is HDR10+ certified & also has Full Care Display Certification by TÜV Rheinland.

The silicon driving it is the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ which is the fastest SOC from Qualcomm currently in the market. With up to 2.96GHz CPU clock speed & a GPU with 15% better performance than that of Snapdragon 855, it is an absolute beast when it comes to the performance. There is 6/8/12GB LPDDR4X RAM & 64/128/256GB storage.

It is worth mentioning that only the 128/256GB variants have UFS 3.0 storage & the 64GB variant has UFS 2.1 storage. There is no support for memory expansion so 64GB variant won’t be the first choice for many.

Coming to the cameras, the Realme X2 Pro has a Quad camera setup on the rear like Realme XT. But, there are some changes. The primary camera is the same, i.e., a 64 Megapixel unit with Samsung GW1 sensor, f/1.8 aperture & 1/1.72 sensor size. But now, there is a 13 Megapixel telephoto camera with f/2.5 aperture, 5X Hybrid Optical Zoom & 20X Hybrid Zoom. There is a third 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera with 115-degree FOV & a fourth 2MP depth sensor for portrait shots.

On the front, there is a single 16 Megapixel camera. The rear camera can shoot 4K 60fps video & up to 960fps slow-motion videos. There is Ultra Image Stabilization for the rear camera (a fancy name for software-based stabilisation) & EIS for the front camera.

The battery underneath is a 4,000mAh unit (Dual 1,950mAh batteries) & the phone supports 50W SuperVOOC Flash Charging. The best thing is that you get a 50W adapter in the box!

Realme X2 Pro runs on ColorOS 6.1
