After parting ways from Oppo, Realme is coming with its second generation Realme smartphone called the Realme 2 on 28 August.
Realme announced about the launch of Realme 2 on Twitter. While it is said that the Realme 2 would arrive “soon”, a GSMArena report expects that the phone may launch on 28 August. Other tweets from the Realme’s official handle reveal that the phone will have an 88.8 percent screen to body ratio with a notch on top.
Continuing with the legacy of iPhones X-like notches, the focus of the Realme 2 is the notch and has also been dubbed “A Notch Above”. As per some leaked images, the phone is expected to come with a single lens camera on the notch with a grilled speaker at the centre.
Other tweets about the same reveal that it will pack a 4,230 mAh battery. It is expected to sport a dual camera setup at the rear of the phone and a flash next to it. Speaking about the back of the phone, there is also a fingerprint scanner. This is unlike the Realme 1.
