Realme is continuing its onslaught of launching smartphones every month and it has now come out with Realme X2 Pro which is a charged up version of the Realme X2 launched back in September. Priced starting at CNY 2,599 (approx Rs 26,000) and with some extremely flagship worthy features the phone is quite sure to shake up the budget smartphone segment.
Realme X2 Pro specifications
Realme X2 Pro features a 6.5-inch FHD+ (2400x1080) Super AMOLED display that comes with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. The smartphone sports a waterdrop notch display and a 90Hz refresh rate, which is the same as recently launched OnePlus 7T Pro (Review). The smartphone is powered by Snapdragon 855+ processor and an Adreno 640 GPU.
In the camera department, Realme X2 Pro is equipped with a quad-camera setup at the back that includes a 64 MP Samsung GW1 primary sensor, 13 MP telephoto lens, 8 MP super wide-angle lens, and a macro lens. On the front, there is a 16 MP camera for selfies. Realme X2 Pro houses a 4,000mAh battery that supports 50W SuperVOOC fast charging.
While the device has not been announced for the Indian markets it can be safe to assume that when it does the phone is going to compete with the likes of the OnePlus 7T (Review), Redmi K20 Pro (Review), and the Asus ROG Phone 2 (Review).

From what we can make out the Realme X2 Pro is quite an interesting proposition as far as the specs it offers for its price. Right of the bat, we notice the Snapdragon 855+ chipset is present in the device, which is something the K20 Pro does not have. What the K20 Pro also does not have is a high refresh rate display which all the devices including the Realme X2 Pro have although the ROG Phone 2 triumphs everyone with the highest 120 Hz refresh rate.
Talking about optics, we see that the Realme X2 Pro comes with an unprecedented 64 MP quad-camera setup that none of the phones in this list have. However, the camera performance and quality is something we would need to check thoroughly in our full review of the device. Something else that stands out for the Realme X2 Pro is the fact that it supports 50W SuperVOOC charging which is again not found in any competing phone, all of which max out at 30W fast charging. Realme could have a real performer on its hand here and we are eagerly awaiting for an Indian launch of the device. Be sure to check out our detailed review of the device when it launches.
